This Unit is really cool. It records Pictures in burst and video & SOUND. I really like that attribute. Really easy to use and has zoom options. I like to use mine for hunting and security reasons. With the zoom you can post these up high and zoom down to catch license plates when people trespass on land. I have that issue a lot. Seems to hold charge well AND USES 8 AA BATTERIES… Problem with big batteries is that they don’t sell well at stores and by the time you buy them they are half drained. “AA” is way better. I need to buy a 12v battery and test it out on this. My last one finally died.
