- Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:32 am #354306 I bought 5 of these cams last year. I took 3 out to test this weekend for detection range. 9 to 11 yards is all I could get in any of the 3. All batteries were at least at 85%. Does the warmer air in the mid 70s reduce the detection range this much? Very frustrating.

I discovered this while setting up the cam on a trail. Nevertheless, for $30, I'm very happy with the cams so far.
Maybe it's the way I have this camera aimed and the slope of the trail, but with critters coming down the path, it would trigger only when they were really close. The pic of the elk was the first of a three shot series. Same with the lone bull. The cougar was the second shot in a three shot series.
