Because the set up was easy I had this camera taking photos on the range quickly. I suffered through one issue which is a minimum delay of 1 minute. As a tester I cant quickly move through my tests like walk tests, trigger testing because I must wait at least a minute in between each one. As long as you are good with a min delay of one minute for your application this should not pose a problem.
I managed to get some range sample pictures. The photos are fuzzy and look out of focus both day and night. There is usable flash out to 60 feet if only it had better clarity. I performed some sensitivity walk tests and could not get the camera to trigger beyond 40 feet which is what was advertised. The temp during the walk tests was 57F.
I tested the trigger on this camera and was a bit surprised at the trigger times. The tests without flash averaged around 2.5 seconds but a few were 2.2 and some were 3.07. I believe that some more programming in China and a firmware update would correct this issue.
