    I have two of them. They take good pictures but they take pictures 24/7 175 pictures only 25 with actual deer in front. I contact costumer service if this was normal but never heard from them.

    I dont think is the trigger speed. I have set it up behind my house where there is nothing to set trigger it I still come out wit 100 picture in 24 hrs.

    If it was me Id take the money you got in mind for the A-5 and spend it on a covert. Good cameras and outstanding customer service!!!!

    Yes it's true you'll get a bunch of blank pics with the A-5. The most photos it can be set to take is one per minute. There is no option to set in 2 or 3 burst capture mode either. Not really something you want to set on an unbaited trail, but around a corn pile or mineral lick it's ok. Battery life is good, I set mine out Nov 2013, it's been out there ever since with only one battery replacement. Daytime photos are about average, nighttime photos better than expected. It's worth 50 bucks like I paid for mine. a5 deer owl.jpg a5 coon button.jpg 1 buck recent.jpg 1 doe 2fawn recent day.jpg

    I have two. They are ok for the money. As a-rigs said, always face north or south. If at all east or west, the pics are horrible at sunrise or sunset. I do get more blank pics with them than my other cameras, but at $59 each, they do ok

    Same thing here, but overall for the price, not bad, so if it vanishes, your not out a covert
