I am looking at these, anyone use one and have and comments good or bad. How is battery life and trigger speed?

Is $65.00 a good price?? seems low to ne which makes me wonder how good the camera is

From chaseinggame.com it appears that they do not like any Moultrie cameras.

Anyone have suggestions for a good brand and model that is not to expensive @--0--0117

yes, was thinking the same thing Dave, currently looking at a Bushnell or cuddleback. The Eyecon quick shot sounds good, but never heard of them before

I have the D and I 40 along with 50.  They do not like cold weather for battery life with lots of pictures threw in and the display is lost after about a year out.  I like to leave mine out year round.  I started using the solar battery because of battery life.  Got the solar batteries from Walmart cheaper.
Hard to set date/time and see battery level without display working.  Two have quit after 3 years.  Have Cuddebacks now, love the 1/4 second trigger speed.  Have had one of them for over a year now with no problems, got 3 more this Summer.  Get the Cuddebacks from Sportsmans Guide cheaper being a member.

I bought two SpyPoint G4's from Gander Mountain last Spring and i really like them. Really good battery life and really sharp day pictures. It has an IR flash so the night pics aren't really great but adequate. They were $ 100 each. I'd buy another and would recommend them. Customer service is good but they are in Quebec, Canada but have had a lens shipped from there with no problems. Just the outer lens got cracked somewhere, no problems with the cameras themselves.

I have a D55 Zos41 it's a great Camera and it is a flash camera.. I have posted lots of pictures on here with it... $65 is a great Deal and 4 D batteries last 3 or 4 months

for $65 it is worth it. they are slow, but would be fine for food plots or mineral licks. i've had good battery life. depends on what you are using it for. not good during the rut because action is too fast

I run some Wildviews, Stealthcams, and SpyPoints. By far the SpyPoints are the best all around for the money, faster trigger speed, and by far longer battery life than all the others I mentioned. Great quality in the pictures also. Good luck on your choice of cameras. My best pictures have a Trophy Rock sitting in front of them.  @--0--0123

I'm with possum. They will work fine on a feeder, bait pile, mineral site etc. I have 2 old d40's that are on their 6th or 7th year now. They both still work great. Dont expect a fast trigger speed.

I have one Moultrie that is the IR D 55. It takes wonderful pics for sure. I do not like the battery life however. Especially when it's colder. Have had the Moultrie for about 2yrs now with absolutely no issues.

Moultrie puts out a great camera. Remember, the review websites have the benefits of testing all the way up to the high dollar, super quick trigger models. I had a D40 flash model for years. Was very reliable. Not that companies don't have lemon models mind you and I have never owned the 55 but I have thought about getting one on occasion because of the good luck I had with the other one.

What is your budget and purpose for the camera Zos?

ended up getting a wildgame model W6EBXwhich seems to work fairly well, also got a simmons model 119233C only because the price was right,

Both have much faster trigger spped than my old Wildview does. Currently got all 3 out and in use.

get most of my photos off thw wildgame which is in the best location by far.

I try to keep them on my food plots at dsifferant angles .  Need to put one on one of the trails I like to sit overlooking
