Have 4-5 trail cams.that work fine but the Son insisted we had to get a Cuddeback, so he picks 1 up when Cabela"s had a sale for maybe $149.99 with the black flash.

Well set it up and nothing at all !? but have 4767 pics but no deer! anyone happen to have 1 of these? went through the whole thing but not seeing anywhere to adjust the sensitivity, need some help Crying

Bought black flash cuddeback a week or so far so good. Still playing around with different delays and what not will report back once its been in the woods it set on 5 seconds delay and is getting pictutes of deer. I dont care what brand, model, price point, these things are mass produced and your gonna have lemons in my opinion.

Put the camera on a bigger tree not facing marsh grass and report back.

I've used quite a few different brands with mixed results, but have had the best luck with Covert MP-6 and MP-8 black cams. For the price, they offer unbelievable battery life and they catch everything!! Sometimes they give you some blank photos with nothing in them if the sensitivity setting is too high but in my opinion its better to have too many photos than to miss photos. Goodluck and I hope you can figure out the Cuddeback problems.

So, I don't use cams for anything but videos etc. I have had crap quality and customer service with stealth cam. I do like moultries, and have had good service with them. I have 2 cuddes that are 4 years old and to be honest, they are the only brand I haven't had any issues with.

There's usually some setting as far as delay. In other words, something has to move for X number of seconds before the camera snaps a picture. I don't have a cuddy, so I can't say for sure what they call it or how to adjust it. But I usually set mine for 4 or 5 seconds.

I have never owned a Cuddy! I have had Moultrie, Primos, Stealth Cam, and Spy Point. My opinion; Moultrie: Never buying one again! Didn't last very long, several issues with different models. Primos: Ultra35, good camera for the price. No issues. Stealth Cam: G26 imfrared. Love it so far!! Spy Point : a close second to my Stealth. Big Mac

Thought you guy's would get a kick out of this from their website.

Accuracy: Less Blank Images Not all motion sensors are created equal. The ideal camera does not miss animals, nor does it falsely detect something that is not there. We call this Accuracy.

Thanks for the comments, It is brand new and believe i put in a 4 gig card maybe 8 ? And want to say 2 pics every 3 min. on a small tree over looking food plot, some marsh grass .

I have many Wild game and really no problems and 1 Browning, thinking I'm taking $150 out of my Son's wallet.

Best reviews for the price seem to be the new Browning mini cams, with the new Primos cams a close second. The Bushnell Aggressor is getting some good reviews, but appear to be having some firmware problems. Chasing game and trail cam pro are good sites to look at for ratings and test results. The moultries are getting poor reviews with the new models, fyi.
