    I received this product and am very pleased. I’ve had a lot of luck with these small Bushnell cameras. Battery life is great and trigger speed is also quite good. For clarification, this IS the 2011 model with the field scan. Up to 8 Meg images. My only semi negative feedback would be that with field scan you can only set one time period, so if you are going to take images during the morning and evening periods you basically have to include the entire day or the entire night. The entire night would definitely wear down the batteries (IR flash). I imagine it is a simple software fix that Bushnell will put out in the future. I own Moultries at the same price point and far prefer my Bushnells. I simply can’t choke out the cash for the Reconyx cameras. They are entirely too pricey to have a sufficient quantity of them to try to understand the deer herd on the size property where I hunt. I can get five Bushnells for the price of two Reconyx. My Bushnell from last season stood the outdoor life well here in East TX (heat, rain, heat, rain…).

    I also bought the python lock and metal outside case… they’re kind of a pain in the rear to deal with (I’m a low irritant tolerant guy) and nothing a bolt cutter wouldn’t make quick work of. Probably not worth it unless hunting public land.

    Finally I searched the web pretty heavily and found the price at Amazon was the best I could do. If you can beat it though, congrats, then I’m the chump.

    Regardless, I’m happy you’re reading this because it means you’re also excited about deer season. God blessed this great land and you too, be safe and happy scouting!

    Great trail cam, August 26, 2011

    I have owned several diffferent trail cams over the past 5 years. Some good, some just fair, some bad. The battery life and the fire up response time to take a picture is very important. I recently purchased 2 of these bushnell trail cams. Both the battery life and the response time for the Bushnell are excellent. Battery life is awesome, and the trigger time is so quick I rarely miss a picture. I can honestly say this is the best trail cam I have ever owned.

    2011 Model – Best trailcam on the market, June 27, 2011

    II have three trailcams from Bushnell, two earlier models and this new one. This one is the 2011 model that has audio (not really important), a timer to take a picture (field scan), and can handle 32GB memory cards.

    I also own three other trail cams from Moultrie a M-60, I-40 and a D-50. I had a cuddleback two years ago, and it worked fine, but it got destroyed (tree fell on it). I do not own the new Moultrie M-100, which seems very similar to this Bushnell, but this is the first year for the M-100 and I bet they will have software issues. This is the 3rd year for Bushnell and they have this camera dialed-in very well.

    The biggest issue with my older Moultrie cams is battery life. They need feed 6 D cells about once a month. The price of the batteries start to add up, but mostly the issue is going out to a dead trailcam and wondering what pictures you missed. A battery life of 1-year for just 8 AA is great.

    Aside from battery life, all these trailcams seem to do the work well. Basically I want to take a picture of game when it walks by and they all do that. I’m not going to publish my pictures in National Geographic, I mostly want to count horns and find patterns. All do that just fine for me.

    I’ve stuck different models of trail cams on the same tree and compared results. It’s weird, sometimes the Bushnell shoots and sometimes the Moultrie shoots but most of the time they both shoot when game walks by.

    I like the 2 year warranty from Bushnell and have used it. The first year model had issues, and I returned it- they then sent me a new current year model. I had issues with a Moltrie cam once and tried to get warranty work, but they did not honor the warranty and returned my camera. I bought from an on-line dealer they did not like. ( I will only buy from major retailers now)

    I do like the nighttime flash color pictures from my Moultrie D-50, as it is nice to see in color. All nighttime trailcams that use IR flash come out in black and white. Flash vs IR is a personal thing, but in the end I’m counting horns and B&W is fine for my needs.

    The biggest thing I hate about the I-40 &M-60 Moultrie is the fact that it is not easy to swap the SD card. I sometimes like to check my cams every day and it’s a real pain to swap SD cards. On the Bushnell it’s a piece of cake.

    The biggest thing I hate about the Bushnell is that programming in the field under low light conditions is difficult. The screen is hard to read and the buttons are impossible. I find I need a small flashlight unless it is a bright sunny day.

    Some trailcams come with a `viewer’. Personally I think it is a waste, save your money. If you need to view pics in the field, most all cameras (the cameras you use to take pictures of the kids) that use a SD chip will display trailcams pics, and so do smartphones. In my trailcams I use microSD with an adaptor and then plug the microSD into my blackberry for field viewing (If I can’t wait to get back to the house).

    Summary, I’ve been real happy with my Bushnell trailcam. I buy one new cam every year and for 2011 bought this one. I did look at the Moultrie M-100 and I think it would have worked fine for my needs, but it was a bit more $$ than the Bushnell and the fact that the Moultrie is a first year model made me stay with the Bushnell this year.

    I have to admit that this is my first trail camera purchase so I have nothing to really compare it to. I would have rated it higher but there are some things that could be designed better.

    Also the picture is slightly different than what I recieved but I like it better. The “Bushnell HD” is not black on my unit but camo which I was going to live with but it seemed to defeat the purpose of the camo so I am pleased with that.

    First the stand off on the bottom back of the unit should have some adjustability. This could be easily done with a locking screw in manufacturing. The result is that it is very hard to find a tree at the recommended size that does not taper in some way so the camera has a tendency to point up. That with the strap system that makes it very hard to place the camera with out a lot of fiddling. My first full day I ended up catching the backs of deer when they were about 15 yards away.

    Second they should really have the loops where you would run a cable lock through metal in my opinion. However this would add cost and weight but it really isn’t very secure. At least a would be thief are less likely to cut the cable maybe saving you the expense of buying a new lock.

    I am very impressed though with the picture quality and the many options available. It takes a few minutes to get a handle on the menu system but once you do it is pretty easy. I thought when I got to the format option I was through them all as I would expect that to be at the end of the list.

    I will probably pick up a second one of these units to really be able to scout effectively with them as only one does not tell you a whole lot about an area but I just took up turkey hunting and had only been monitoring their movements while bow/gun deer hunting really and wanted to decrease my learning curve on their movements. It did help me zoom into one particular Toms movememnt patterns. And now I leave it running just to keep an eye on the movements around my favorite spot.

    the vanishing turtles mystery solved., July 5, 2012
    Kortick (Providence, RI USA) –

    This review is from: Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam HD Trail Camera with Night Vision (Sports)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    The camera is very well designed and has many features.
    First thing to know that this is just the camera only. It requires batteries (not included) and an SD memory card (not included) to get started. Also, one might need to buy the tree mounting brackets, and if wanted, the security box. The mounting brackets make it so the camera can be placed in whatever location or position one desires, and the security box is to make sure no one walking thru the woods happens to come across your camera and decide to take it.
    So keep in mind before you begin there are a few items you need and/or might want to get to be able to use this camera to its fullest potential.

    A friend of mine who’s wife is a Vet Tech takes home animals that have been abandoned or are ill and cares for them instead of having them put down. The house is full of cats, dogs, birds, and other assorted house pets. Also she rescues turtles. She is a professional and cares for them medically, keeps them clean, and lets them live out the rest of their lives in as much comfort as she can provide.

    Well, the turtles for years have been put in their outdoor habitat when the weather turned warm. One morning she discovered someone had come into the yard and some of the turtles were missing. Several hours of searching could not locate them. It was obvious they did not wander off on their own. Police were called, and although there was nothing they could do, they said they would be on the lookout for anyone wandering around late at night on the street, with notice if they are in peoples yards.

    A few days later, the remaining turtles were put back in the yard in a re-enforced enclosure, having been brought indoors again for safe keeping and while their outdoor area was made more secure. The next morning, she discovered the enclosure damaged and the remains of a few half eaten turtles in the yard. Now it was decided that most likely this was not the work of some kids going around stealing turtles, and certainly not eating them. This was the work of a natural predator. The oldest of these turtles had been in the outdoor enclosure since 1996 with no problems until just recently. We then decided we needed to figure out what was attacking and killing these animals.

    I took the camera to their house, put in the batteries and a 16GB memory card. Even though there are many features to this camera, the manual and set up of how to use it are straight forward and if you have used a digial camera or video camera then the set up will not be difficult for you to achieve.

    We mounted the camera on a tree in the yard (not using any of the above accessories, just some items from a local hardware store) and took some test video until we got the angle and picture how we wanted it showing the turtles outdoor area. After bringing the remaining turtles inside, we set the enclosure back to how it was and left some bait in it. We then let the device run and waited to see what we would find.

    The following day the enclosure had been attacked and damaged again. We then reviewed what the camera recorded during the night. The video showed a fisher cat coming into the yard and doing the damage. Never before had there been a fisher cat in this neighborhood. We contacted the police to let them know it was not kids or vandals causing the problem but a natural predator, and gave them a copy of the video. They then put a release out saying that people needed to beware for pets or other dangers these animals might cause and to be aware they were around.

    So I was able to put this camera immediately to good use and it worked great. Easy set up, and instant results. I am sure that if one was to use this camera for hunting or tracking wildlife it would serve the user very well. The camera is top notch, but keep in mind to use it to its fullest potential there are other accessories one would need to purchase. I am thinking of getting a tree mount bracket next so I can set it up in more places. In the future I may get the security box if I decide to put it in more distant areas than my yard or a friends yard.
