The plot watcher batteries went dead this morning I added up 34,572 pictures on the set of batteries and around 11 days run time. I viewed the media from both units using the included software and will give you my thoughts. First, The plot Watcher has more more battery life with AA's I think every one can see that and I have found the footage at dusk/dawn is better with the plot watcher. The Plot Stalker good daylight images are better to me higher MP you get alittle more zoom out of them before the pixel out. Viewing the images with software at first I thought the software was about the same because it looks the same control wise. That said the Day6 software is just better its faster to view through the images and just seems to be more eye pleaseing to use. The moultrie it's bad its just not as good overall. Overall I like both units but have to give the edge to the day 6 plot watcher its better AA battery life makes a huge difference and software helps out on viewing images. For anyone planning on buying the moultrie and running anything less than a 1 minute delay between pics you will need to add a 12vt battery to your system I have already set mine up that way to get better run time afield. I forgot to add on cloudy days the plot stalker images were much darker than the plot watcher its no doubt the plot stalker does not do as good in lower light conditions.
