those are some interesting points - buy each of you - i have personal experience with moultrie customer service and can't praise them enough - if i don't start building homebrews i think i am going up to the i40 or i60 -

sundowner - thanks for the info - i know the d40 does have a slow trigger as i stated in another post - but i was just curious as to how slow it was compared to the capture - but since yours are 3 years old the trigger is probably way slower than mine i just got this year -

I may be wrong but I was under the impression that the new capture trigger speed was suppose to be faster the the older Cudde's which would make it really fast.

It's more like what doesn't it have. The flash distance, megepixel, trigger speed are all in step with the other Cudde model. It is missing many of the advanced features that the Cudde Expert has, and it doesn't do movie clips. Most of these feature are ones that most hunter probably do not use. The setup is suppose to be super simple. It uses SD cards instead of the Compact Flash (I think this is a plus). There is a regular model and a IR model. There is a product comparison at the Cudde website

 The capture looks like the way to go. It seems to be not too pricy either.

I'd steer clear of the Captures for a while.  Sounds like they have a bunch of bugs in them. 
Check out the reviews at:  http://www.chasingame.com
They do a pretty good job testing all the new cameras out there. 
Sounds like its a crapshoot if you get a working unit or not.
I've only had one contact with Cuddeback customer service and they were great.  But this was back in the day of the 35mm cameras.

Thanks for the heads up. I have not had much luck camera scouting this year. Between the camera problem, and the fact that they started clear cutting where I put my camera out (almost lost it), and since it is getting so close to the end of the season, I have decided to wait till next spring to get a new camera and start fresh next summer. I will check the review again in march/april and see if they have the bugs worked out by then.

It was not the acorn rage , it's the one that they made before it . The coons ate most of it , but it did not melt . I have a picture of I think 4 baby coons on it at once .
