Last pull was June 24 with 2,000 pics since May 24. I changed the sensitivity to Low so I wouldn't have as many false triggers, and it seemed to work. But I checked it yesterday out of curiosity (July 3) and had 770 new pics. \:o Problem is the camera only has a 30s, 1m, and 30m delay settings. I don't want 30 minute delays but 1 minute is too short so I guess I will just keep it on 1m and be glad I have an 8 gb card and a very long battery life on the camera. Supposedly will take over 30,000 pics on a single set of batteries. Not sure if it's true but so far it looks like it might be.

And that's why I pay extra for cameras with nearly infinite burst mode and delay time settings. I use different settings for each type of camera set-up (salt-licks, food plots, trails, scrapes, etc.)

I pay less because I get whatever is on clearance. \:D

Some series of pics are a single doe eating at the salt lick for a long time, with pics only 1 or 2 minutes apart. But I do have plenty of cool fawn pics and a few young bucks. Hope the big boys show up this fall when they start to range shift.

When I first got a Reconyx, which takes a pic every 1/5th of a second, I made the mistake of trying to get the most pics as possible. I put it over a salt lick and got over 3000 pics in one week. I thought it was cool until about pic #300 \:D . I won't ever do that ever again! The only time I put it on that setting is over scrapes or fields

you tried turning off the time lapse. I learned the hard of having so many pics of nothing .

not sure what you mean. My camera only takes pics when it senses IR heat/movement. I turned the sensitivity to low instead of normal because of all the pics of nothing. The wind blowing the plants and the hot sun were false triggering the camera. When I checked yesterday there were still a few false triggers here and there, but not nearly as many. The bulk of the pics were deer spending ridiculous amounts of time eating salt.

Mine will do burst shots so I could do that with a 30 minute delay but I still do not like that amount of time between triggers in case some unusual critter comes through. My camera does not take continuous pics like some do. I think that's called plot watcher or something?
