My Covert Black 60 has been a very solid camera, especially for the price. I honestly have no idea how many pics it has taken so far, but if I were to guess it is close to 30,000 photo's on one set of batteries and they are still reading 50%. My only complaint is that this camera will take pictures with nothing in front of it any time the temps creep above 80 degrees. I have it adjusted to the lowest sensitivity and it is still happening. Maybe I am spoiled from my Reconyx, but this camera just seems to take pictures when it wants to. I have turned down the sensor and trimmed all grass from in front, but after todays check I realized that this only helps when the temps remain in the 70's or lower. My camera read over 5,900 photos in the last 9 days and I would guess that more than 2,500 photos were taken on days when the temps went into the 80's and they all were between 12:00-4:00 p.m with nothing in the shot. Don't get me wrong, I like the camera, but this is a problem that I see browsed over far too often. These cameras have great battery life and take amazing photo's, but the blank photo's and the fact that they will trigger before an animal enters the actual field of view of the camera is a problem.
