Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the money Great camera for the price. I would buy another one. September 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pros and Cons... My rating would be 3.5, but can't rate that. First the Pros: (1)Trigger speeed is very good, much faster than my other cameras. (2)Day picture and video quality is also very good. (3# Controls are easy enough to understand after learning a different system from Moultrie. #4# Mounting system is OK. I do not have a problem with it. It is easy to remove from the tree and change SD card or batteries. Now the Cons: Made in comparison to many years of various Moultrie camera use. #1# The detection range for the camera is very short, especially at night. #2# Night pictures are blurry, making it difficult to see the animal, especially any details such as the rack on a buck. #3) Night videos are grainy kind of like old black and white TV with the old rabbit ears antenna, for those of us who are old enough to remember those days. Result - again, no detail is revealed, so why bother. My conclusion: At the sale price paid, I use the two cameras. I simply use them on trails where my Moultrie cameras may not be fast enough to capture photos and realize their limitations. But the same is true for ALL Cameras. All have some deficiency. No other camera I have tried is fast enough for trails without using corn or something else to stop the animal. I am willing to try Cuddy's new IR camera. It advertizes a longer detection range and higher MPs, so that should address my problems. I am simply waiting for enough reviews to determine if performance is satisfactory. September 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible night pictures I have a Cuddeback Attack and it is a great camera. I bought two of the Ambush and I am very disappointed. While the day light pictures are good, all the night time photos are severely blurred. I am not talking about deer running by. These deer are just walking but you can't tell what their rack looks like due to he blurred photos. Very upsetting. I checked their website to see if they had an update that fixed this but they did not. I called and told them what was happening and they said "Sorry, that's just the way it is." September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Time will tell. Too soon to tell really. Will see how it acts a year or so down the road. So far, not bad. September 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't take pictures I bought two of these cameras and got nothing on them. I thought I was doing something wrong so I made some adjustments and left the camera for a few weeks in the woods and still nothing. So I hung my moultrie camera on the tree next to the cuddyback and left it for a few more weeks. When I returned to check the cameras my moultrie had pictures and nothing on the cuddyback. Lesson learned always go with what hasn't failed you. Moultrie always reliable for me. September 12, 2014
