I agree, I have been using cuddybacks for over 15 yrs now, and all mine still work?
and I have had many other brands, and NONE of them have the trigger speed or wake up time
electronic things all have issue's, and I truely believe that how they get from company/factory to the store makes a BIG deal on how well they work or last
same deal as if there hauled about on an ATV, all them vibrations I think play hell on them
I always take great care in handling mine, and won't say there perfect, as some times they seem to get brain dead and miss pic's, then go back to working great
but then again all the other am's I own also do
dampness too I think screws with there brains
But been running cuddybacks since 1998, with there 35mm film cam's, and still ahve and they still work, to several of there new cam's nver had to send a single one back
and I run cam's all yr any where froma couple hundred pic's a week over a feeder/plot to couple dozen a week on trails temps from -10 to about a 100 degree's
Funny some folks get so many problems
its like ford chevy dodge, fort every good one I guess there is 5 bad's
the new American way it seems! LOL
or is that way of the world, as nothing anymore seems to be ALL made in America anymore!
and everything is made to break, so you buy more!
the JOB security plan the modern world seems to have!
