I always wondered about the Bushnells, glad to hear you like the one you have Spiker. I was about to get a D-55 IR, but not now if you think they will no longer be supported Dep. That doesn't surprise me, that model has been in Moultrie's line up for awhile now. I know I'll never buy another Cudde, took the BEST pics but the reliability for me was . Now I've been looking at the D-444, I saw them on Ebay for like $104 or $108 and that including shipping, but I wondered if you are any happier with yours Dep??

The Cuddys also have no warranty.If your camera malfunctions they offer to sell you a new one at a reduced cost.They do not fix their own product.This infuriated me and ill never buy one again that's y I went with the Bushnells.So fellas just a warning on the Cuddys they will screw you over if something goes wrong.

Thanks, that's good to know spiker. I honestly have never wanted one- just mainly because of the price. I have found that other trail cameras cost less and do the exact same thing. Besides, if you need a trail camera that takes pics in a millasecond you probably need to re-think where you are placing that camera.

TLF So far I do like the D-444 I put it in a new location & checked the other day very few pics on it
Battery life so far seems to be on track of the D55IR
I do like the passcode feature except that everytime you turn on the camera you have to punch in your code (not a big deal) I guess if someone steals it they just will have to try a long time to get it to figure out the passcoode or just throw it out you can deactivate this
also I think i need to play with the settings more as the pics seem a little better on the D55ir but I do seem to get longer distance pics with the D-444 with the 60-80' IR zone compared to the D55IR's 40'
& it is lighter throughout the pic not just centered like the D55IR is
The only real drawback for me with it is the size not used to a camera this small I cant find the darn thing have the time
& the new strap is a ton better then the older ones
When I move it this weekend I will check it the following weekend & post a couple pics if I get anything on it
BUT Yes so far I am pleased with it

That's good to know Dep, the feature I thought would be an advantage is the extended picture range that this camera claims. I didn't like the strap on my M 80 either, especially on smaller diameter trees. I found a website that sells all kinds of strap and buckle configurations and bought a couple with stainless toothed spring loaded buckles for a couple of bucks each.
