I wish I had the patience and skill to make my own game camera's.
Your's look professional,very good job building them.
I've used Bushnell Trophy cameras in the past,but they seem to go bad after a couple seasons.
This year I bought 2 Browning Recon Force series cameras,and also 2 Primos DPS time lapse day cameras.
The Browning cameras take excellent pictures day and night. I've been very impressed with them. The Primos time lapse cameras are also good with the picture quality,but I don't care for their software that runs the pictures on your PC.
Both use AA batteries,and have a long battery life.
I have the Time Lapse cameras set to take a picture every 5 seconds from daylight-dark,and they last about 16 days or around 10k pictures a day. You can view a complete day's worth of pictures in just a few minutes with the software.It's pretty neat watching game come in/out of the area with these,and also knowing what trails they take at different times of the day
*Note* If you get the Primos DPS camera,buy 2 32gb cards for each one. It takes a very long time to download the pictures to your computer,and it's not something that you will want to do in the field with a laptop. I learned that the hard way!
