The camera runs on 12 AA batteries that are inserted in the base below the drop down door (flap).  The drop down door also has the control buttons and color viewing screen. The setup is basically the same as last years model.  We were told that there were several improvements in all areas on this camera including the gsm function.  We felt that it deserved another look.

This camera can operate as a stand alone camera in photo, video or time lapse modes while also being able to transmit photos to your email or phone as text messages.

Sensing range tests revealed triggers at 50 feet for 49 degree temperatures.

To assist in the MMS setup a utility is supplied.  Setup.exe is provided to configure the camera and/or the mms settings for the camera  You use the setup to save config files to the root of the SD card.  When you insert the updated SD card and turn the camera to setup, it will load and apply the new settings.  You can use the camera setup menus to configure MMS as well.  I find that using the Windows setup exe a bit easier and much faster.

Progress and Activity
05-06-2013 update
05-06-2013 update:  We have completed a GSM battery life test.  The camera will continue taking photos till dead to complete the battery life.  The camera transmitted 1074 out of 1246 photos taken using standard Rayovac alkalines.  When the camera finally quits taking photos we will report a final battery life.

<strong”>05-08-2013 update:  We managed to capture some 1080p video samples and these look really good and the sound is clear and balanced.
06-02-2013 update
06-02-2013 update: The batteries are finally dead on this camera.  We tested the camera using only alkaline batteries in GSM mode until it would no longer send.  Then we continued to use the camera in photo mode until the batteries were dead. The camera took an additional 742 photos after the 05-06-13 update above.  This review is now closed.
