I set this camera in our back field near a game trail, and after two days had nothing. So I set out some deer corn as well. 81 photos of deer. I have had the camera three weeks now, since Christmas and have gotten pictures of deer, raccoon and fox. The motion sensor was sensitive enough to be set off by a blue jay. It is a great camera.
However, it is not exactly plug and play. There is no viewhole to know what the camera will take, so you should set it up and do a couple of test shots to make sure it is centered right. You don't want to get three days of pictures only to find you had it aimed too low and all you have is deer feet. It has acted oddly when you can ge to a new card and last night (it was 20 degrees out) it got stuck in test mode until I reset it three times. Finally, the photos are .3 megapixel. In today's world that is hard to adjust to. The good news is you will definitely see a deer or raccoon, but you won't get anything like the detail you'd get with your 5 megapixel pocket camera.
Focus is fixed, another reason test shots are good. The batteries lasted for several days. This camera is supposed to be used by parks and things to see what uses their trails, or by consumers to see what is raiding their garbage cans, not to win photo awards. Oh, and there is no time stamp which is a shame - you can't use it to see what time your daughter actually drove back from that party. Or to know what time the raccoon knocked over your trash. For these caveats I only give it 4 stars, but I love it and it certainly does everything it is supposed to do.
