I've had 3 game cams so far and they all either have gone back for repairs or will be.
Stealth Cam - worked good for a year and a half, then the buttons that are needed to change the menu wouldn't work. It functioned fine for a while, but it finally stopped sensing, and quit taking pictures. It was sent back for repairs (called and got a RMA#) Nov. 1. No word from them yet.
Moultrie I-40. Worked better than the Stealth Cam, although I did have minimal problems with white-outs. After 1 year the LCD screen that showed how many pics were taken, battery level, etc. went bad. The date and time is wrong, and I cannot read the numbers on the screen to change it. It is still taking pictures, and lasts for quite a while (3 months) on a set of batteries.
Cuddie Capture IR 5.0 Purchased it 11-18-09 to take the place of the Moultrie when I sent it in. From the get-go it wouldn't take pictures. I called Cuddie and they said "send it back and we'll fix it". That's fine, but the 4-6 week turn around time puts getting it back after season is over. I could take it back to the place where I bought it and exchange it, but I purchased it via the internet and I'd have to ship it anyway.
I've found that shutter speed is everything. I can't always set the cameras where there is a food source and the deer are walking slowly or stopped. A short delay, or a couple of pictures within a couple of seconds gives me multiple times to see a deer, and there are many times where the first picture won't show what I want to see of the deer. If the delay for the 2nd pic is long, my chance of seeing what the deer looks like is usually gone.
I don't know where you looked for camera reviews, but I've found that www.chasingame.com
is the one that I seem to gravitate back to when looking for camera reviews. For very recent information, they also have a forum.
While I believe the "visible flash" game cams work just fine, I want mine to be as invisible as possible even tho I place them on my property - less chance of someone seeing it go off and maybe walking off with it.
