The M-990i is part of the flagship Advanced Line of Moultrie game cameras, ideal for capturing some of the highest quality digital images of deer and other wild game on your land or hunting camp. Built to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions, and designed to escape the attention of even the sharpest bucks, the M-990i is your silent sentry, capturing all the sights and sounds of your next big trophy. For a clearer, more comprehensive picture of what’s waiting for you out there, trust the M-990i to deliver the invaluable field intelligence you need to stay ahead of the game.
Decked out in Mossy Oak® Treestand camouflage and powered by Moultrie’s advanced 70-foot NO-GLOW infrared flash technology, the M-990i is practically invisible to game. Day or night, the motion sensors detect and stealthily capture prey within 50 feet – all without alerting your subjects to the camera’s presence.
Advanced Camera Line
Even though it’s completely silent, the M-990i’s got all the bells and whistles. Capture some of the highest quality photos available, then preview your photos and HD videos right there in the field on the 2-inch full-color LCD screen. Ample photo, video and timelapse settings let you customize your surveillance, while a detailed Information Strip relays to you all the ideal conditions for encountering the biggest game again.
The M-990i employs a passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor that’s triggered by heat and movement within 50 feet.
MOTION DETECT DELAY
Delay is a low-power "sleep" state entered after image capture. Longer delays extend battery life and limit the images recorded in high-traffic situations (e.g. – on a very busy game feeder). The camera can be set for 5, 10, or 30 second delays as well as 1, 5, 10, or 30 minute delays.
When using the Delay function, multi-shot mode allows the camera to record multiple photos between set delay increments. “Triggered" multi-shot (3 photos) requires a motion trigger for each photo. "Burst" multi-shot takes 3 photos quickly after a single motion trigger.
Timelapse mode disables the PIR sensor and instead triggers the camera through a countdown timer that can be set for up to 2 different time lapse captures per day.
In this setting, you can set an adjustable interval between each image capture. Use longer intervals for slower changing subjects and shorter intervals for faster changing subjects. The M-990i allows for 13 different interval settings, lasting from as little as 10 seconds to as long as 24 hours.
The camera can be triggered by both its passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor and a time-lapse program.
The M-990i resets rapidly after image capture, taking only 1 second after a motion trigger until the camera is fully ready to detect motion and capture more.
The camera display is a full-color 2-inch LCD screen that lets you navigate menus, aim your camera with a live preview, and review your captured images. The other buttons on the front of the display panel are backlit for ease of viewing during low-light conditions.
The flash is equipped with 32 Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights. This 940nm NO-GLOW LED technology is essentially invisible and can illuminate game up to 60 feet away in total darkness.
MOTION FREEZE / EXTENDED FLASH
For night-time operation of the camera, you can select between reduced motion blur or extended flash range to maximize image clarity and visibility.
IMAGE QUALITY AND CHARACTERISTICS
Allows for multiple settings of photo resolution, to better help you manage storage and image quality. All photos are captured in 16:9 aspect ratio (the same as modern high-def televisions) and optional resolutions include:

- High (1280x720) [16:9]
The M-990i records sound with a built-in microphone when capturing video.
OPTICAL FIELD OF VIEW (FOV)

BATTERIES & BATTERY LIFE
Camera requires 8 AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries that should last up to the capture of 13,000 images. This is a conservative estimate of photos that can be taken before the camera’s batteries are depleted. Actual results vary based on user settings and environmental factors.
ADDITIONAL POWER SOURCES
Compatible with Moultrie’s 12V DC external power sources that can be used to extend field life. Camera also supports AC Power Mode that allows for high-performance and perpetual use of the device.
MEMORY & IMAGE STORAGE
MEMORY CARD COMPATIBILITY
Works with SD/SDHC Class 4 cards or higher, and can handle up to 32 GB. Memory cards are sold separately
Wi-Fi MEMORY CARD COMPATIBILITY
Camera is compatible with Eye-Fi Connect X2/Pro X2, which allows the camera to transmit images to a Wi-Fi network and the internet. Moultrie recommends (but does not support) the "X2" series of cards from Eye-Fi.
When set to "Overwrite Oldest," the M-990i will erase the oldest photos and videos to create free space for new photos and videos when the memory card is at full capacity. Or if you want to keep all of your old images, you can also set the camera to stop recording new images when the SD card memory is full.
Optional security feature requires a 5-digit code to operate the camera.
