    I didn’t know I could edit my original review, so an update is posted as a comment to this. Changed my original 3 star rating to five stars (reason for 3 stars was failed camera, but replacement is great!)…

    Purchased this camera at the end of September. Received about a week later. The camera was simple to use and set up and a compact size. The main reason for a subdued rating was that the camera only lasted a week before it died. When it failed, the LEDS would show that I was putting it in setup, but the screen would not work. Or, the LEDs would show I put it in run mode, but it would not take any pictures. I was satisfied enough with the camera before it died that I have sent it back for a replacement, rather than a refund (just today 10/08/2010).

    I should first note that the camera label shows it as a 5M camera, but the description says it will take 3, 5 and 8M pictures. Was a bit confusing for me, but the camera did take up to 8M pics.

    As advertised the camera allows one to set the picture size (3, 5 and 8M). I initially set mine to 8M. The instructions note that the larger sized pictures may cause blurs from fast moving subjects. I did, in fact, get a number of these but they were all in the night pics. There seemed to be much less when I set it at 3M. The camera allows one to set the sensitivity to three levels, low, medium and high. I initially set mine to high and ended up with over 3,500 pictures the first night. About eight of these were due to deer, the rest seemed to be due to swirling mist in the field. I also got quite a few pics of floating spider web strands :).

    Over subsequent nights I tried all three sensitivity settings. The high setting consistently gave several thousands of pictures with no subject. The low setting seemed to work fairly well. The medium setting consistently gave close to 1000 pictures with no subject. The camera allows you to set it to take one, two or three pictures each time it is triggered. I tried all three settings and they worked as expected, taking the three pictures within about 2 to 3 seconds. I set the time between camera PIR sensor resets to a range of 10 to 45 seconds. So, if I set it to wait fifteen seconds between checking the sensor for movement, and used the high sensor setting, it would wait those 15 seconds then immediately take a picture. I have no idea what it was triggering on other than the mist.

    During the day the movement of grass (4-6″high) and leaves on an adjacent tree (25′ away and to the left of the picture) seemed to constantly trigger the camera on the medium and high settings (later in the day when there was no wind it seemed to calm down). Daytime temps were about 50 to 60 degrees and mostly sunny. Night temps were about 45 to 50 degrees and mostly misty after about 11PM. There was enough moisture on several of the nights, along with drizzle during one day, to get the camera decently wet. No moisture was detected inside. The lens did fog over one morning and gave blurred pictures. A bit of a cover over the camera to help protect the lens might be needed for wet weather.

    The night IR LEDs seemed to work reasonably well and I could discern deer at a distance of over 50 feet during clear conditions (just barely). When several elk came close to the camera at one location (I would guess about 4 to 5 feet away) the LEDs were too bright and the elk were almost completely whited out. I could still tell it was an elk by the outline of the head and ears, and make out it’s eye shining, but nothing more. Even small amounts of mist will ruin your picture taking. I assume this would be true for any camera that used IR LEDs though I have not used any other game camera. With a very light mist in the field at night (mist that I could readily see through with a decent flashlight for 150 feet) the camera could barely see the outline of an elk at about 15 to 20 feet, but could also see the eyes of three other elk that I believe were bedded next to it right in front of the camera (the eyes tend to shine the same as with a white light).

    I did not get an opportunity to try the video. I bought two memory cards, each with 4G capacity to swap out on the camera. As mentioned earlier, one card held over 3500 pictures on the 8M setting, though I believe it was full. Swapping the cards was simple and only took a few seconds.

    I’ll add some more info when I get my replacement camera if there are no further problems. If the new camera has issues then I will return for a refund as the other reviews I read seem to indicate the quality is inconsistent camera to camera.

    Best trail camera for the money!, June 14, 2010

    This trail camera is the best camera for the money. I have spent over $500 for cameras and this camera beats them hands down. It is compact, long battery life, night vision, video viewer and 2G flash card holds hundreds of photos. I have 2 of them out in the timber and I am getting over 700 photos one each one in 3 weeks. The quality of photos is great. I plan on getting a couple more.

    Good camera after exchange, January 14, 2011

    This review is from: Bushnell 119455C Trophy Night Vision Trail Camera (Brown) (Electronics)

    After reading other reviews about this product on Amazon and other websites, I decided that it was the right camera for me, but that there could be quality issues. Because of my concerns, I passed up bargain-basement pricing from another vendor and purchased from Amazon. Amazon pricing was competitive, and I know that they stand behind what they sell.
    When the camera arrived, I found it easy to understand, set up and use. However, on normal sensitivity, it never took any pictures. On high sensitivity, it took many pictures of nothing. Other than this issue, I really liked the camera. After the batteries completely drained in one night when it captured hundreds of videos of empty space, I decided to exchange it. I was happy with my decision to go with Amazon, as they made the exchange easy, and covered shipping both ways.
    When the new camera arrived, it worked perfectly. I have been using it for over a month now with no issues. Pictures are clear day and night. Sensitivity is nearly perfect on the normal setting. Trigger timing is excellent, even captures foxes moving quickly by. My usage temperatures have ranged from about 50 degrees to near zero degrees Fahrenheit. The unit has continued to accurately capture photos through rain, snow, ice and bright sun. No moisture has gotten inside.
    Battery life is good for photos, but not good for video. Even with the new camera, my batteries died after a couple of active nights capturing video. However, the new set of batteries still show full power after three weeks of photos (no video).
    I definitely recommend spending the extra money for the XLT with the view screen. The screen can come in handy, especially when you want to be sure that the camera is properly aimed. Also, have at least two SD cards on hand so that you can easily swap them out. I did not buy any other accessories. My camera is secured to a tree using the included strap.
    The Trail Cam is a lot of fun. I have gotten pictures of deer, foxes, raccoons, birds, squirrels, a coyote and a stray cat.
    I am taking away a star since the first unit did not work well. Second unit would probably get five. Amazon service is definitely five stars as well. They have earned my loyalty as a customer. I highly recommend the Trophy Cam XLT, but recommend buying it from a vendor where you can exchange it at no cost if you get a problematic one.
