This thing is great! I bought this to get candid pictures of the wildlife that lives in and around my yard, and it has done a great job. It’s easy to use/program, and takes both still pics and video with sound. It comes with a tree-strap. (8) AA batteries have been in it for about a month, with no sign of weakening yet. It also has very effective night/IR capabilities. I’m going to try to post a picture that it took of a grey fox standing on a boulder – if you see it, it’s mine. It uses standard SD camera cards, and takes pics in JPEG format, so it’s easy to get the pics onto my Mac. Very pleased.
