Hello to Scouting for wildlife

I have started this new blog to follow my scouting of wildlife. I will be using game cameras to scout and capture pictures of Virginia's wildlife. Up until recently I have been using a cheaper brand of camera that is not the best when it comes to taking pictures in the woods. Most of the day time pictures were completely whitened by the infrared.

I now have two new game cameras on order. The cameras are made by Spypoint and are 6 mega pixels and 12 mega pixels. The 6 mp camera is the Spypoint IR-6 and is a compact 4 1/2" X 6 7/8" X 2 7/8". The camera has 48 infrared LEDs for night-time illumination.

The IR-6 can use up to a 32GB SD/SDHC card and also uses six AA batteries. The camera takes color pictures by day and black and white by night. One great feature I like is that the internal unit is removable. This will allow you to keep the camera's shell mounted to the tree and you will not have to re-aim your camera every time you check it.

The Pro-X is a 12.0 megapixel camera. It has the same measurements as the IR-6. I contains a 3" built-in viewing screen to allow you to see your pictures or video in the field. This camera also has 46 infrared LEDs and use up to a 8GB SD card. One feature that really stands out for me is the audio recorder. I can not wait to try and get some bear video and turkey video with audio!

Stay tuned to see some great pictures and videos from these two cameras.
