My moultrie 990i's I have a couple of issues with them. One is the battery life is only about half as good as my 880's and early morning or late evenings when it's still light out the inferred kicks in. In which of course are not as good as daylight pics. I have 2 of them and they both have the same issues.

For what it's worth, I have a few Moultrie M-990i cameras. I've played with them a good bit and haven't heard any audible "clunk" noise that BSK described. I'm certainly not saying that he doesn't know what he's talking about, but I haven't had any issues out of mine and I haven't had any pictures of spooked deer.

For the price on Amazon I'm very satisfied with them.


I extremely pleased to hear this Nyper. And by the way, I never said the i990 has the clunk; other people say their "new" Moultries have a very audible clunk, but they never gave the model number.

Black flash takes considerably more power than red-glow flash does, hence battery life will definitely be shorter. In fact, that's one of the big technological issues with producing a good black-flash camera--power consumption and battery life.

Understood... I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth. \:\)

I don't seem to have that issue either. They do switch, but to me, they switch at the right time. If they didn't switch, the shutter would have to stay open longer to gather more light and you would wind up with blurry pictures.

Just curious - did you update the firmware that is available on the Moultrie website? I don't know if that would help or not.

Every IR and black-flash camera switches to low-light settings (infra-red black-and-white pictures) once light levels get low enough, even while their is light enough to see. That is just the way they work.

I've got a few with 6000-9000 pictures on the same batteries, still at 70% life
