Apparently 60 sec delay in between shot... Problem?


If it's the original Spypoint Tiny, that model came out in 2011. That's probably why it's on clearance for only $55. Spypoint has released multiple improved versions of the Tiny model since then.

The minimum delay between shots is 1 minute, per the manual. However, it does have a multi-shot function that can be set from 1 to 6 shots per detection.

Multi-shot: Take up to 6 consecutive shots at each detection, with a 10 second delay between each photo. This option allows up to 6 pictures from different angles when the camera is in
“Photo” mode.


Here's a link to the manual if you want to read up on the camera.

Spypoint TINY model

The cons are that you are getting 2+ year-old technology and the first version of the TINY series. The TINY has been significantly improved since 2011, but the new ones are well over $100 and in some cases over $200 for the new black flash version. The pros are that it will probably take good pictures and video, it has a wide-angle detection system, it's a pretty small package, and it's only $55. It should outperform any $50 - $75 low-end trail cam that you're going to find at WalMart or anywhere else. Plus, Spypoint has good support.

Honestly, if it were me and I could only get one of the two, I would take a chance on the Eyecon Black Widow for $72. It's a black flash and the Spypoint is a red IR flash. The Eyecon is also a newer camera than the original TINY. I think the black flash is worth an extra $17. I just don't know what kind of a reputation those Big Game Eyecon cameras have. I would check the web for reviews.

My advice: avoid Spypoint. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the input. Just bought another Deer Positioning System. First one I bought for $27 and is working pretty good so far. Today they were $22.00. Probable will use one for monitoring the house while we are at work during the day...
