I purchased a Browning Strike Force HD Elite 10MP trail camera in August, 2016 from Cabalaís for $99.99. I set it up immediately one of my food plots and it has remained there for the last year. Itís protected from direct sunlight and rain because it sits in a three sided plywood box attached to a three-foot stake.

Iíve used it for triggered still shots, videos, and time-lapse pictures and it has yet to give me any problems. Picture quality, day and night has been excellent. Trigger speed and distance sensing are very good. Battery life (six double Aís) is amazing.

When set to time-lapse with pictures one minute apart - dawn to dusk, a new set of batteries will last 14 days and produce a little over 2,500 pictures.

Here's one of the time-lapse pictures from that camera.

Love my strike force. Hell of a camera. I paid the same price for mine.

Surely the 14 day& 2500 pictures is a typo. The batteries should last much longer than that in my experience.

almost 10K pictures on one set of batteries

Guess it depends on MP settings

I can see little difference in the 10MP and 4MP setting

Wish they would drop back down to $99 again. I can only find them around $139.

I get about 8500 pics on one set of batteries with mine set on 10mp. The OP is probably losing some battery life due to the camera never going to sleep

Command OPPS are good too and you can find them around $75 at different places.

what is the main difference between the Command Opps and the Strike force?

Based on what I've read and heard, the "opps" cams dont take as good of night pics and dont have the motion detection range the strike force does.

Ive been running two strike force's for 3 years now and havent had an issue yet. Knock on wood!

From what I can tell with mine is the clarity of night pics with Command Opps is not as good as Strike force. You see it mainly in video mode at night. But for the money I cant complain. I have 8 of them.

I not really ever going to do video's so just worried about the pictures. Not really sure i need to see the deer much clearer than what a 10 MP can do. Only issues is the 60ft reach at night compared to the 100 in the Strike Force.

I have 4 Brownings, 2 w/on board viewers, older models, but have been very happy with them. They make a good cam.
