I have Moultrie, Bushnell, and Cuddeback and overall I have liked the Bushnell Trophy cams because you can adjust sensitivity. Some of the Trophy cams do "white wash" the photo at dawn and dusk but, it's not so much of a problem that it outweighs the quality of most of the quality photos it takes.
Note: I am learning to not face the cameras towards the sun. This screws all of them up.
I am not a hunter so my interest is a) figuring out what kinds of cute furry critter wonders around my yard and b) what kind of trespasser goes through my yard on rare occasions. Were I a hunter, a photo of a deer that is blurred or where the deer is a white deer-shaped blob because it got a bit too close (the camera does not adjust the exposure well enough in the dark for close in use) might be telling the hunter all they need to know. But that doesn't suit my needs. So admittedly my remarks are intended for prospective buyers who are not hankering for venison.
Things I DID NOT like were: 1) Still photos IN THE DARK do not provide a brief enough exposure time to stop movement. A person walking at normal speed across the frame will be difficult to recognize, let alone identify. If they stand still however they should be recognizable as long as they are not up close. Video in darkness however was much better for that purpose. 2) The G30's IR LEDs "glow" more than I expected and make the unit far too easy for a human to spot in the dark. To replace the defective G30 I decided to pay the extra for the G42 which should be harder to spot. 3) The G30 did not behave reliably with Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable cells. NiMH cells produce a slightly lower battery voltage compared to alkaline cells. The unit senses that as if the battery were reaching depletion. Elsewhere I read a knowledgeable sounding reviewer stating that StealthCam's units stop doing night video when they sense low battery conditions, but still work well enough in other modes. That probably explains the erratic behavior I had with NiMH rechargeable cells even when they were freshly charged. 4) The IR LEDs produce a rather distinct "hot spot" in the center of the frame. I would have liked it if they were more even across the frame.
Pro: I didn't expect to find a 1/4-20 tripod thread on the bottom, nor did I expect to find an external 12 VDC input jack with a weather cap. It has both. On the back surface it has slits for a strap plus plastic rings you can thread a cable through to make the thief bring tools to steal your camera. And the hinged face plate has a hasp feature so that you can add a padlock.
Comments that are neither pro nor con: Do not be surprised if IR night imagery does not accurately differentiate light / dark clothing. For most of the experiments I did I was wearing navy blue neck gaiter, maroon sweat shirt, mid-gray sweat pants. All three rendered as if I were wearing white from head to foot. Different materials and pigments do strange things in IR lighting. For those who care, Army woodland pattern BDU material does what it was designed to do under IR illumination....make you blend into a forest somewhat.
