No, but I've left one out for over 2 months and went back and it was stolen!

I changed over my batteries from C's to AA's by using sleeves the same size as the C's that the AA's could be inserted into. On a few occasions the sleeves have popped apart causing the batteries to lose contact. I hate it when checking a camera during prime time in a prime location expecting to find bookoos of pics only to find 0 pics.

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've done similar many times.

Running a variety of different makes and models, it's easier to do than some seem to think.

I always wave my hand in front of the camera to take a pic before leaving. If it wasn't for that, well like others, too many times to admit.

That doesn't work with all makes & models.

Exactly. Some (most) models give no outward indication they are taking a picture.

Can also recall several times I've pulled a card, checked that it took a pic, then replaced it, confident that the cam was working correctly, only to return a month later to find the cam was not working properly (if at all). That's how I would describe most of my experiences with the Uway brand.

Ever properly set a Cuddeback No Flash, and just as you're walking away, hear the batteries fall out? That has to have been the most irritating cam to use I've ever had the displeasure.
