    I got this Moultrie I-40 about two weeks ago and set it out for the first trial run near a new stand that we just hung. In fact, it's actually hanging on the tree where the stand is. More than anything I just wanted to see how the camera worked and try to get a few shots. After two weeks I had about 40 photos, all does though. A few empty photos but not too many. All in all it appears to be working out well. I haven't had any problems (knock on wood) that others have had with white-out photos, screwy colors, or IR pictures during the day. The one thing I did notice however was that all the deer appear to be looking right at it. I guess they notice that huge black blob on the side of the tree, and I think probably hear the "click" of the filter as it drops over the lens to take a photo. I know I can hear it, so I'm sure they can too. Some seem to mind, others don't. Hopefully I'd get it over a scrape this fall and see how well it does.

    In the meantime, I'm happy with the quality of pictures that it takes. Especially during the day. For $200-ish it seems to be a pretty solid camera so far.

    The quality is definitely there Justin. Those are some good lookin' photos from a trail-cam.

    Hopefully your luck continues with this camera. If it does, you will have a nice camera for putting on scrapes.

    The daytime photos from an I40 are excellent. I always love the color pics I get off mine.

    Good pics.

    I bought one earlier in the year and have been really impressed with it, I have over 2000 pic's from it and the only down side that I can see thus far is the night time pic's but it is a IR..

    Here's a couple from my I-40

    Ol' Doe

    Pigs (they are not supposed to be in there, thats why the hog panel is around the feed site)

    I have always had this camera put up at a feed site, last time I was at the ranch i set this camera up on a trail that one of my bowstands is sitting on. I will let you know how it did in a trail situation once I check it. It will be the first week of October before I am back up there to check it.
