    H2O Mellon Hangin' With My Gnomies

    Okay guys, as most of you know when my site: www.Hockingcountywhitetails.com was up w/ all of our pics, they were 95% from our numerous Stealth Cams we've had over the last few years. I think we were up to over 10 of them. This year I broke down & traded a handgun for a digital & my bro in law bought one of the $100 dig cams from Wildlife (Stealth Cam makes them).

    Pic Quality: The digital cam I have is a Bushneel VGA cam, it runs about $200. It only has .3 meg alloated to the picture. Unless you go above 1 Meg, (which also usually means $) I'd say stick w/ the 35 mm cams. Below are a couple examples

    Number of Pics.... WOW , what a freakin difference. Last week (the 1st week I had the dig out) I ended up getting 250+ pics. Now w/ the Sleath Cam in the same location for the previous 2 weeks I had 14 pictures. So that tells me what I've been saying for the last several years, the cheaper cams are a great way to scout, but unlike what they are claimed to do, they do not pick up deer/urkey/coons, etc.... every time there is one around. The Dig Cams kicks butt in the category.

    Easy of using: No brainer here: Dig Cam win in a landslide. Pop a SD card in, Pop a SD card out. No waiting for the fild to be developed, onlyu to be disappointed due to a printing error or a flim error.

    Hopefully that will help some of you on the fence deciding on wheter to go digital or 35 mm. I'd recomend in going digital w/ a 1.1 meg camera. Someone from Moultrie told me they will be introducing a 1.1 meg digital for $100 by the fall.-So Keep Your Eyes Open!!!
     
  2. I just bought a moultrie digital camera from bass pro shops. They had it on sale for $130 (plus battery and charger), compared to cabelas $180. It's a 1.3 megapixel, and although no deer yet, it has taken some pretty nice pics of myself. I set it out yesterday, and I can't wait to go check on it. I really like the 10 second video option. You can plug into the tv and watch it like a movie, very nice.
     

  3. Got my first set of pics back from the cam. They look great, even for being set on the lower quality level. Im glad i got the digital version because i had a lot of wasted pictures, coons, rats, and some of what appeared to be nothing.
