The first one was defective and would not turn on after a few days. Sent it back to Cabela's and they shipped me a new one right away. This one ran away or false triggered all day yesterday almost filling the card. When I went to check on it this afternoon it did not take my picture until I was opening the camera door. All my other cameras did not run away or false trigger at this spot. I'm thinking the third D333 will be a charm if I decide to get a third. It's soaking again now at a different spot. If it false triggered again it's going back to Cabela's.

Good luck with the third, I put my first one out about a month ago, cked it once a week for two weeks everything fine, now when I put the SD card in I'm getting a "no memory" message with the three different cards I tried and no pictures at all, I'm hoping the vendor will take it back and allow me to upgrade to a 444 or 555

I was told to upgrade to the D55IRXT by someone here. I think it was cosmos. I should have listened to him.

I don't think there is any way to adjust the sensing. I haven'r looked at the manual. I guess I should.

I did not read your first post well enough but if you walked in front of the camera before opening the latches then it should have gotten you walking in even if it was on a lower sensing setting. If so I change my advice, I would get rid of it.

I checked the manual. No way of adjusting the sensing. It's on an overnight soak now. I'll check it tomorrow and make a decision.

Well, you know what, I found mine dead with just about 40+ pics on it :evil: after putting a new set of Rayovacs in the tank two weeks back. I brought it home from the woods and will do more testing but I have a feeling it will be going back. I am going to ask Moultrie if they will trade me a D-55irxt instead of replacing the 333. I have heard to many bad things on this camera already. :x They don't have any setting for the sensor sensitivity.

Not sure what to do here now. I moved the D333 to another one of my spots where I have had cameras before without any problems. I let it soak overnight. Went in late today and the card was full. All false triggers only during the heat of today. It was only 80 degrees here today. The Camera's temp reading was 176 today and yesterday. So that is defective. I checked the batteries just now and they all read 1.39 volts. Could that be the reason it's false triggering? But it only happens during the late morning through afternoon then it stops. It does not false trigger at night. I saved a few of the pictures from late yesterday. Do they look out of focus to you guys?

Should I put brand new batteries and give the camera one more try or should I send it back?

The edges do look out of focus, especially the right sight. I almost bought 2 of these, but went with the Recon Forces instead. Seems like I made a good choice. I would call Moultrie and tell them the problem and send them a sample picture.

From my limited experience with cameras, most issues show up for me with low batteries. I like cheapo rayovac alkalines and i check each one with a voltmeter before launching a camera.

So I put new tested batteries in it and left it in the back yard overnight. It took two pictures of me no problem last night. Went out this morning and walked by it. Nothing. Turned it off then off again and now it's taking pictures. I don't feel like babysitting this thing. I'll probably send it back tomorrow. Looks like the D333 may be a lemon.

It's going back to Cabela's tomorrow. It ran away today during the heat of the day. None of my other cameras in the spots I put the D333 in do that. Also, the camera will not turn on. The last D333 I had would not turn on either after a few days. I will get a refund and move on.

That's too bad. I purchased mine locally over the counter from a Fleet Farm. Maybe Cabela's got a run of bad ones that they are shipping out. Too bad. I want to like this camera, but I hate seeing what you are writing and hope mine doesn't suffer from the same issues.

I decided to give the D333 another try. I think I have 90 days before I can return it to Cabela's. I tried it yesterday and it worked fine. It was cloudy all day. Last time it false triggered all day it was very warm and the camera was sitting in the direct sun. Maybe this will be a winter cam only if it doesn't perform well in the summer.
