This camera is the same size and “look” as this years M880 with the exception that it is black flash and the camo has more of a grey color similar to the oak trees around here. 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 intuitive and menu driven on its color screen, so simple you do not need the book.
Sensing range tests revealed triggers at 50 feet for 42 degrees temperatures.
