Hi Hurcheon

I also tried some cheaper cameras before eventually deciding to spend a bit extra and got a Bushnell, although probably one of the cheaper models. I haven’t been disappointed. The picture is much better and in general it is more reliable and doesn’t miss as much as the others. Sorry I don’t have any video on the internet, so can’t direct you to a sample.

Re. the rechargeable batteries. They don’t work if you only use four, because, as you say they are only 1.2v and the cameras need 6v. But if you have a camera which takes 8 batteries and you use all 8, they work. I found it became quite ridiculous using non-rechargeable ones – they just ran out far too quickly. My Bushnell is aimed at the feeding area, so the busiest location and I re-charge the batteries daily. I find that it is necessary to keep the batteries well charged to get the best performance from the camera.
