Just picked up the 6.0 an the directions are a little vauge on somethings, what exactlly is Time Lapse Frequency and It has 32mb of internal memory but to save images on a sd card dose the internal memory have to fill up then it saves to the card or dose it just save to internal memory an sd card. Any thing would help. Thanks, boar

Boar....the time lapse frequency is how often the camera takes pictures after the initial activation. Let say a bear comes in and trips the sensor and gets it's picture taken. The time lapse frequency just tells you how often additional pictures are taken if he hangs around. If you set the time lapse to small you'll get lots of pictures of the same critters.

Once you put an SD card in the game camera, all the pictures go on the card. It doesn't fill the internal memory first. Make sure to buy yourself a few SD cards. You can switch them out without removing the camera and check them on any digital camera you have at home (if they take SD cards). Don't buy SD cards from Cabelas or any sporting good stores. Watch the adds for the electronic stores and you can pick them up for about $10 for a 1 gig card.

Since I know you are bear hunting, let me suggest picking up an old ammo box and cutting a few holes to make a protective housing. Bears can be pretty hard on cameras.

Hmmmm I guesse I'm still a little confused, sorry. Is'nt that what Image delay an multi image are set for? I under stan setting image delay for number minuets between pictures when an aminal is detected an multi image is number of pictures with in the time set for image delay. So if I set the Image Delay for 1 Minuet an the multi Image for 2, the camera will take 2 pictures in that one minuet with 13 second delay between pictures. Right? So Im just a little fuzzy on the Time Lapse Frequency, Sorry. So If I dont want alot of pictures of the same animal, a mid range setting on the TLF should work.

Boar...I think I might have steered you wrong. I just looked at the directions and Time Lapse Frequency has to do with being in Time Lapse Mode. Bascially if you put it in Time Lapse Mode it takes pictures at a specified frequency instead of being triggered by movement. The unit of time that it waits before taking the picture is set by the time lapse frequency. For instance if you set time lapse frequency to 4 hours and put the camera in time lapse mode it would take a picture every 4 hours.

Thanks Hub, I aprreciate the effort, I've been playing with the camera quite abit an am sarting to get a good understanding of it. Boy for a trail cam, it's pretty sophisticated. Thanks again. I've been working on fabricating a steel housing at work, an was wondering should I cut out each individual piece like the of course the motion sensor an shutter an IR areas or just cut out a big square. I work with a plasma cutter an am very versed in the plasma cutting department, I gonna use 1/6 steel sheeting any thing bigger would be to heavy of a finished product, I figured on cutting out each individual area, making a duplicate protective face plate. Thanks boar

Boar...I've seen commercially made protective cases and they cut out each little area. I just cut out the whole thing because I'm lazy. My bears typically haven't tried to chew the game cam, they just swatted them off the trees.

yea, but I have fun fabricating things instead of buying them. Thanks again for your help. Boar

    • The GOP feels a need for some reason to pick up the mess in healthcare that the Democrats created yet in the process, they seem bound and determine to own the mess themselves. despite the public crowing, the DNC would love for the GOP to get stuck in this tar pit, also   Let ObamaCare collapse on it's own. Do nothing
    •     Actually, I think it sounded like breakfast to D2E....  
    • Big day today. Obamacare is about to be replaced with Obamacare light.Maybe. But if the Koch bros get their way the bill won't pass.
    • Child please. You know I am right and it's OK to admit you thought Aleppo was something Lorne Greene fed to his dogs.

    •   Yawn...   8 months...9 months.... or more, investigating the evil Donald and still nothing ??   Maybe just join the Duffman and have a good cry ....    
    •   You're getting sort of deep there Jigsaw, but yeah, who really gives a rip if someone calls Rachel Maddow a dyke on an internet forum?       politically correct  ► adj. Of, relating to, or supporting broad social, political, and educational change, especially to redress historical injustices in matters such as race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. adj. Being or perceived as being over-concerned with such change, often to the exclusion of other matters.     There's a good article about it here: https://www.academia.org/the-origins-of-political-correctness/
    •   Lol...   Another progressive snowflake melting down in the warm Trumptember sun.   Epic....  
    •     Ok,drama queen.   There is no mama or Polish jokes, having a go at wives and children.    Stop yelling rape because someone accidentally brushed into your b.o.o.b at Costco. When on the defense down here, being egregious is the last resort for most when cornered. Only second to calling out for martial law that once exisited in these parts. You want to live by the sword, well, you know how it ends.   As for personal relationships, unless you boys are neighbors and all groomsmen then I wager this is nothing more then a geriatric Tinder site, doubling as a support group. Online relationships can be anything they want it to be, except reality.    You either are going to get the what and why of what I said or or you're not. It was no mistake and very intentional. As I said, not a rip but an easy observation.   Im not down here to make pals and build lasting relationships as the very idea of that in this setting is a contradiction in its self. (misery loves company cliche applies) Im just giving in to a guilty pleasure which has almost run its course.   In closing, it's game here. Not a discussion or a debate. A perpetual cat fight. Ideas and opinions are made without ever directly stating them and they carry the same weight as if they were to be.  Just be aware enough to catch it.   If you do not like my brand of Vodka. That is ok with me, it's not for everyone. I respect the voicing of it, I encourage.   But just know, down here, all of you are get away drivers but hold the same culpability as the one inside robbing the bank.
