It's common to get over 27,000 pictures off one set of batteries!

I think the Covert Black 60 is one of the top black-flash cameras in the market, but I placed the 2012 versions I reviewed last year 3rd or 4th on my preference list due to lower-quality night pics compared to some other brands. I look forward to seeing results from their 2013 models.

Bryan,
What is the cost of the cameras that took better night pictures than the covert black 60?

I have used the Covert Black 60 for the past year and absolutely love it! The only difference between the 2012 and 2013 models is that the 2013 has HD video with sound, while the 2012 has regular video with no sound. If you are not interested in video there is no reason to pay more money for the 2013 model.

Also consider the 2013 Covert MP6 Black. It is a smaller version of the Black 60, having 40 LED's instead of 60. I caught them on sale at Wing Supply a few weeks back for $119.99.

Both the Bushnell TrophyCam and the Uway VH200B took better night pictures and both cost around $200.

Although I've had problems with other Uway cameras (mainly the NT50Bs), I was extremely pleased with the VH200Bs I used last year. Not a flaw from any of them. I also have one TrophyCam and like it very much, although I don't think it is true black-flash (I can see a glow from it).

Any idea how much less night illumination you get with only 40 LEDs instead of 60?

W. Seay,

Although I've never used one, the test pictures I've seen from the new 2013 Primos TruthCam Supercharged Blackout (around $200) are truly spectacular, as for clarity and illumination distance. They really blow away any other black-flash cam. Now the question is, do you trust Primos cams?

Well, you're a better man than I.
After the ongoing problems I had with the Uway NT50Bs, my purchases following all the great reviews they had on Chasingame, no way would I ever again consider ANY Uway.

I feel about Uway exactly like you (and I both) feel about Cuddeback: Overpriced junk. No way would I take another chance with either.

But I am favorably impressed with what I'm hearing about the DLC Covert cams. Just a little gun shy having heard similar about so many others, most of which never work as advertised, and commonly become useless about the time their warranties expire.

The MP6 Black has a flash range of 45 ft., the Black 60 has a flash range of 60 ft. While the Black 60 produces noticeably brighter photos, the MP6 Black is certainly adequate for most situations.

As mentioned earlier, a few nighttime photos from both models are blurry or out of focus. The slower shutter speed needed to gather enough light causes this. I have yet to see any black flash or infrared cameras that did not produce at least some blurry night photos. By setting the camera in burst mode, I am able to get at least some of the photos clearly focused.
