I've really been impressed with the new Moultrie line from last year.  I bought an m-880 and it works awesome!  takes great pictures, good battery life and what's impressive is that it has a 100 ft ir flash range at night and I believe the detection range is 60 ft.  definitely going to be getting at least one more of these.

I bought two Moultrie entry level A5's and they are fantastic. Long battery life, great pictures and never a problem of any kind. Bought both for less than a hundred dollars on ebay brand new. Can't 'say enough about them! From talking to others, I have never heard a complaint about Moultrie.

How would you rate the trigger speed on the A5?  Did you use them as a trailcam or did you use them more aimed at a feeder or bait pile?  I've owned moultries for a long longtime. The only knock I've ever had on them is trigger speed. I've never been able to use them on a trail. All I get is pictures of the trail...ever now and then a butt.

I've had Bushnell's that were good camera's but only got about two years out of them. Last year I bought one of the Moultrie 880 great camera with good trigger speed. I also purchase one of the Browning camera's (middle camera) which it I had to guess it's made by Moultrie which has also been a great camera for the money ($135).

I got a Hunten for Christmas 2 or 3 yrs ago.  Lasted one year.  I think one of the cats knocked off a table, but it never worked after that.  I contacted Hunten, and the gal said to send it in.  I never did.

I really like my Cuddeback Ambush. It has great battery life, takes good clear pic's and is a smaller size. But most of all it wont break the bank.

I used them in a grove of apple trees 250 yards from my ladder stands. They were feeding and rutting under the apple trees so I don't think trigger speed was a factor. However I did pick up several shots of a running fox, leaves blowing down in a very strong wind, and two hawks that came flying down to strike a bird. I have not used them on a trail yet so I cannot answer your question on the trigger speed very well.
