Mine came with a nylon strap to attach it to trees or posts, and it works quite well. The photos themselves are not great, but are good enough to identify what the animal is, and of course, what time the animal was there. I've spotted raccoons, skunks, and foxes with it.
As for battery usage, this takes 4 "C" batteries. The last time I used DURACELL C12 PROCELL Professional Alkaline Battery, 12 Count bought here on Amazon, and they held up amazingly well. The birds get up earlier than I would get out to the barn, and move constantly in front of the camera, taking hundreds of pictures each morning. Those batteries would last for a good week or more using a flash with each of those photos, so considering the number of flashes taken, the camera is not a battery hog.
The camera I purchased is probably not the exact model that is being sold now, although Amazon says that this is the camera I purchased. Mine has 1.3 Megapixels, so the model being sold now is an upgrade.
I'd probably buy this camera again.
Four stars only because the photos aren't the best in the world, but since the camera being sold now is an upgrade, it should be better than my four year old one.
Anyway something was brazenly stealing not only eggs but also my expensive ceramic nest-eggs, in broad daylight, usually between 10 AM and 4 PM. That pretty much ruled out the usual egg-thieves (raccoons and possums.) I needed to ID the thief so I could think of a strategy to defeat it. I suspected snakes at first... but snakes don't come back day after day, and definitely not several times in one day - they need a week or more to digest! Besides, eating a ceramic nest egg is death to a snake, and I knew I couldn't have that many snakes around here big enough to eat eggs - I'd be tripping over them! I was even blaming my dog for awhile... but keeping him under strict supervision did not stop the thefts. ...Squirrels?
So I ordered this camera and set it up about 15' from one of the nest boxes. I had to use a little wedge of spare lumber to make it face down at the right angle at that close a range. Found an old half-gig SD card to put in it (it doesn't come with the SD card!) The camera is very simple to set up but you can discombobulate it if you don't follow the instructions and always pause on "Off" for a second or two before switching from test mode to PIR mode or back again. If you DO discombobulate it, though, it's easy to re-boot it by taking the batteries out for a second.
Mostly I got pictures of my hens laying eggs. The first couple of days, eggs continued to disappear without me catching a shot of the thief. I was starting to think it must be something without body heat (even snakes give off absorbed heat on a hot day!) My friends said I must have a poultrygeist. (I DID see a few "orbs" in some of the night shots!)
I found it was easiest to take the SD card out and check it on my computer every day. That way you don't have to undo that long strap each time (it does come with a very long strap, in case you need to secure it to a really thick tree!) It's also possible to delete any unwanted images directly from the SD card itself in Windows Explorer, if you have a card-reader, so you don't really have to delete them through the clunky interface on the camera itself, even though the instructions don't tell you that. The most images I ever got in one 24 hour period was 120 or so - that didn't fill my little half-gig SD card much at all, so if you intend to check the camera often, you really don't need a huge card.
On the third day, the culprit got careless! I caught a nice series of shots of a crow hopping into the nest and taking away one egg after another (two of them ceramic) by picking up a whole egg in his beak! Usually crows steal eggs by spearing them with their beaks and carrying them away by the edge of the beak-hole, but they wouldn't be able to spear a hard ceramic egg, so I had never even thought it might be a crow. But this fellow must have been unusually large, or else just really talented. Or maybe he was actually a raven. Anyway I set up a tarp to cover the view of the affected nest boxes from the sky, and the problem is solved. So the camera was definitely a good investment!
Now that the mystery is solved, I've set it up down by my pond just to spy on the comings and goings of the various green herons and deer and whatnot - it's been fun for the grandkids! It's run for probably a total of twenty days or so, so far, and the batteries are still fine.
Oh, and by the way, it was a large raccoon, AND an opossum breaking into our henhouse at night! They have since been trapped humanely, and released on state land far away. Our remaining chickens are grateful. :)
