I ordered this game camera, as I got it super discounted in exchange for my honest review ($30 shipped).
It is not a mainstream hunting brand, but I thought the specs looked good.

What are your thoughts on it given the specs and housing and such? I will be doing an in depth review once I receive it but I wanted to get some feedback from here on it initially.

Thanks!

So you got a discount for honest review and then you ordered it? Sorry I never heard of the TC.

You get the discount for a given product then after you receive the product you give an honest review on it. Most of the products are free. This Camera was a 70% discount which made it $32 for me. If you read reviews on amazon for products you will often see where they put a line in the review that is sort of a disclaimer like this

"I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. However, my review reflects my honest opinion of the product and the discounted rate had no effect on the quality nor honesty of my review. I am NOT required to give a positive review to a product that I feel does not deserve it. "

I have done this for many items over the last month or so. Its pretty cool especially when most of the items are free. There are a bunch of sites for doing reviews for products like this. You just choose products you would be interested in and request a voucher. They will approve it and send you a coupon code to use when you checkout on Amazon dropping the price.

This is the site I use.

I will never pay for phone cases or screen protectors again lol. I read a ton of reviews when I was looking for a new phone case that said they got the case for free for their honest review. That is what made me look into these discount for review sites.

Set it up in the back yard last night and looked at some of the pics on my lunch break. I had the distance of detection setting set to high and it took 600 pics since last night due to a tree about 55ft across the yard blowing in the wind and I had the interval set to 5 seconds. The pics it took during the daytime were very very clear. I wiped out all the pics and I set it to low setting on distance and 10 second duration. I will see how the pics turn out between now and tomorrow, I will let my German Shepherd walk around the yard and such to see how well it detects him and how the night pics look. The night pics from last night were almost solid white and washed out but I think that was because it was sitting on the patio too close to the ground. It is mounted on a pole now to see how it does. We shall see! Definitely well worth the $32 for the crystal clear daytime pics! It also takes videos so I will test that as well. I have a 32GB card in it and I will be at the land often hunting or close enough that I'm not too concerned about it taking too many pics and filling up.

I wanted to wait to post pics until after I test it tonight since it is now setup properly. I didn't feel like it was fair to post pics that could have been lesser quality due to my flawed setup lol.

Here is a few pics. The daytime ones are nice, but nighttime is not quite as good. It could be because there are a lot of lights beyond the fence at an apartment complex and busy road that are messing with the ability to take clean night pics. Hopefully nighttime pics are clearer in the dark woods. Video seems to be a little darker than daytime, which isn't a big deal as I won't be using the video functionality anyways. For $32 i'm very happy with the daytime pics and functionality of the camera. The remote is easy to use and has a little spot in the compartment where it stays when not being used. The screen on the camera is clear and nice to look at pics on the fly without having to put the sd card in a laptop.








I will have upload the videos to youtube or photobucket then post them.

Hey, thanks for posting the amazon review link. 'Didn't know they had that. Looks like you got a decent camera for 32.00. Not sure I'd pay 109.00 for an unknown brand, but I guess that's what their program is about - making it known.

LOL, NO, that isn't why the camera isn't able to take "clean" night pics.

Alright so I checked the camera yesterday after it was at the feeder for about a week. Ignore the timestamp as it is a little off I think since I turned off the power for a while before setting it up. Overall I was impressed and it performed better than I thought. There were over 4000 pics because I had the interval set at 5 seconds and high sensitivity. I changed the interval to 5 minutes. Here is some pics. It seemed to detect deer well beyond the feeder pen. It also showed me a crazy looking multi main beam buck that is coming to the feeder daily.

Sorry the pics would not upload through the forum so I had to use photobucket. These are not the best of the pics but rather just some random ones i clicked quickly to upload.

Not too bad for the price, I would want more from the night pictures at $100 though.
