What customers say about "Connectivity"
Moultrie Panoramic 150 (MCG-12597) Game Camera
  • It's easy to put in place and easy to look at the panoramic pictures that it takes on my PC.
  • It accepts up to a 32gb SD card which is nice. Easy to set up.
  • I suggest you buy a 16 or 32 gig memory card. It takes a lot of pics. It's amazing what you miss on a regular camera compared to this one.
Moultrie Panoramic 150i (MCG-12638) Game Camera
  • I'm using it with a EyeFi X2 connect card and running on AC power. Each time it takes a picture I get an email with the pictures attached.
  • Easy to setup & use, has great picture, suggest getting a 2nd SD card so can swap out to review activity if looking on computer vs camera.
  • The camera was easy to use and put up. And so much fun. Downloading the pictures was a breeze.

What customers say about "Features"
Moultrie Panoramic 150 (MCG-12597) Game Camera
  • The camera can be set for panoramic or single shot.
  • It has been through a few days of heavy rain and has not been affected by it.
  • These cameras are amazing. Although I think the panoramic feature is neat, I find the real benefit of this camera in the single shot mode.
  • Best used in series mode rather than panoramic. Takes nice shots of the three fields of view in series.
  • It's worked well in rain and temperatures below freezing.
Moultrie Panoramic 150i (MCG-12638) Game Camera
  • In short this unit takes some abuse, with no adverse issues, mud, rain Bumps and grinds from miles of 4Wheeler travel.
  • Had the unit freeze once, but she is still fine.
  • Going on 3 years of use without issue. Rotating feature is by far superior to a single position.
  • It films a lot more than what's right in front of the camera, plus it films at night.
  • I like the options for pan series, stills and video... bonus is the no-glow LED's.
