Moultrie D5 Game Camera
  • Got lot's of squirrels and a raccoon. Money well spent!
  • Looks great and works as promised! Shoots clear photos and videos and is super easy to use!
  • Works fine and take good pics and videos.
  • The pictures are clear and good quality. Love it!
Moultrie A5 Low Glow Game Camera
  • Works well at night. Fairly decent image quality.
  • Works as advertised, takes acceptable stills and video (AVIs), and doesn't seem to upset the animals.
  • The infrared flash doesn't startle the animals at all, the time stamp helps immensely and the pictures are very clear.
  • The nighttime video is also clear, although black and white, but the infrared only lights up a relatively small area.
  • These cameras take awesome pictures/video. They are rugged little cameras too.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Moultrie D5 Game Camera
  • The videos do take up a lot more space, but with a 16GB card, the storage is not a problem at all.
  • I have a 32 gig card in it. That's WAY too much! 16 or even an 8 gig will work fine unless you wont check it for a season.
  • The camera is great and the design is easy to switch batteries or the card from in the field.
Moultrie A5 Low Glow Game Camera
  • You mount it, set it to the time interval you want the picture to be taken at and forget about it. We grab the pictures when we can from the SD card.
  • Easy to set up and use. Works with all my SD cards.
  • This camera will handle any large capacity SD chip. Just this morning my 4 gig chip recorded 85 pix, all clear.
  • I use a fast SD card, 32G, Extreme with excellent results.
  • The resolution on hi is good and even several hundred images will not fill much of an 8GB card.

What customers say about "Features"
Moultrie D5 Game Camera
  • I am a big fan of the video feature myself. I would and will recommend this trail cam to anyone!
  • The camo on the camera makes it nearly undetectable.
  • The camera is easy to use. I mounted it to a tripod so I can place it anywhere.
  • Easy to use and helps keep track of my yard.
Moultrie A5 Low Glow Game Camera
  • Even though it's all plastic, it seems to be pretty weatherproof and watertight and has survived snow and ice storms.
  • Setup is easy and it's been very durable.
  • I love that it records/displays the time, moon phase, which camera # it is at the bottom of the picture.
  • Water tight case has been out in heavy rain storms and has not negatively affected the camera or pictures.
  • We also needed something that can take pictures at a set time interval. This does all that!
