This is the Bushnell Trophy Cam model 119577.  It is the low glow with built in color viewer.  It comes in the traditional Bushnell Dark Brown.  The camera runs on 12 AA batteries that are inserted in the back of the camera while the camera is in the front door. The Bushnell documentation recommends to use  Energizer Lithiums but we are using STANDARD ALKALINE batteries so be aware as the flash output may drop sooner and have a slightly shorter battery life as a result. The controls and setup menus are all very familiar and did not require reading the manual..  It has been a while since we tested a Trophy Cam and felt that after a couple of years have passed it is time to take a look at one.  We will focus only on this model as it has the no glow flash and HD video. For security this camera provides a python through hole as part of the strap loops and does not provide real security.  A lock box is recommended if theft is a potential. Audio recording is optional on this camera which is important to law enforcement in situations where audio is not admissible. Trigger testing and day range are completed and the trigger times are very respectable at under 1 second.
Progress and Activity

07-23-2013 update: I managed to get both photo and video samples this week.  Tonight I will try and get a flash range done as the rain has slacked off a little.

12-08-2013 update: This camera has taken a total of 7131 photos and 161 video clips over a period of 5 months.  I had expected somewhat better battery life however this is still respectable for a black flash camera.  This review is complete.
