I put these 2 side by side for 10 wks. Results are
HF2 1723 pics , hc500 1301pics. The settings for both were 3pics, sensitivity high, picture interval 1 second, quiet period no delay. I left them in the same spot, same position to see if I get about the same results again. There was no empty wind pics on either cam. At the end of this set I will change their position to each other, left to right. Will post those results in a couple of months. I was a little shocked here with the results. Now I'm thinking about putting a HF2 vs XR6 for videos. That might be interesting too :mrgreen: :D

Sounds good thanks for the info. How does the picture quality and flash distance compare to the hc500? Wondering if it was better or the same?

Good information. I'll be interested in the results vs the XR6 as I have several of those.

Something else that can help when evaluating a camera: if you are lucky (or unlucky) enough to have fresh snow. When you see fresh tracks in the photos but no animal, that's a bad thing.

The day pics are about the same. HF 2 has better color to it I think. The night pics are better with the HF 2. The HF 2 has 3 settings on the flash. Low , medium. high. High has a very bright output and long distance on the night pic but, I can't see the flash at 2ft.

I think it will be good. I'm just interested in trigger speed and number of videos against each other. The XR 6 has better video.

checked cameras 3/28/19. Results are HF2 1920 pics. HC500 1194 pics. What I have noticed is that the HF2 detects faster than the HC 500. The FOV is also wider on the HF2. I think that's why the HF 2 is taking more pics. This ends the side x side comparison for now. Have to start setting more cameras out . :D
