The camera that took these photos is a 10MP Browning Strike Force 5HD. I have two other brands (one of which got water inside). The Browining is by far the best. It has many options both photo and video including time lapse - none of which I have used. I am not even sure I have it set for 10mp (see comments below). It takes reasonable night shots if the subjects are not moving rapidly.
In the twelve years I have lived in the woods, I have only seen a turkey twice and deer three times. Other than coyotes which I see occasionally, I really wanted to know what was roaming around. So, initially, my goal with the cameras was not to get great quality, but just to document critters. I currently have a Wildgame camera in the backyard and the Browning in my upper field. I rarely get anything in the backyard (although I did get a twelve point buck earlier this year, in addition to a friend mooning the camera). Virtually all the animals that have been captured have been in the upper field. Opossums, armadillos, rabbits, raccoons, coyotess, bobcat, and deer at night. Turkey, coyote, deer, squirrels, crows, cats, and dogs - mostly Otis, my own, during the day.
I did not check the Browning all this summer. Went to check it last week only to find a branch had bent down in front of it in June, causing it to take about 4500 pictures in less than a week, exhausting the batteries which were not very fresh at the time. Fortunately, Momma turkey and her babies were captured just before the batteries died.
I have ordered another camera, a 14MP Bushnell Trophy Cam HD Aggressor No-Glow Trail Camera. It is a somewhat more expensive camera than the Browning which, had been spending cash, I would have bought; but the Bushnell was available through my credit card reward points. I want to put one of them looking across the flood plain toward the large creek or by the smaller creek where I have seen herons and ducks.
When I get time, I will post some other photos my cameras captured.
