This camera feels like the M80 camera we have tested in previous years.  Gaining popularity in the forums we felt like we needed to squeeze this camera in.  The constant rain has held back our timely testing but we are pushing through.

The camera runs on 8 AA batteries that reside in a pullout drawer, nothing new here. The setup is the old familiar lcd screen setup and I did not need a book to figure it out.

Sensing range tests revealed triggers at 50 feet for 42 degrees temperatures.

The sensing range is identical on the 880c as the 880i.  Both cameras will not trigger beyond 30 feet.  I did jumping jacks, slow walks, fast walks and the limbo. I can’t get it to trigger beyond 30 feet.

I am wondering if the pir sensing cone is aimed more down, which is the problem or is it something they can tweak in the firmware and provide an update?  I sent my Moultrie contact an email and I hope they will get back with me on this.
