Unlike trail cams that trigger on short-range motion, the Day 6 Outdoors™ PlotWatcher® provides a timelapse video of a full day's activity across a defined area by capturing HD images taken as fast as every second. You can then review this video (in 3 minutes or less!) to track specific game movements and identify key travel patterns, including entry and exit points. The original PlotWatcher provides 84 hours of time-lapse video (7 days' coverage), but the PlotWatcher Pro kicks it up a notch with 10 times the battery life (3 months). Built-in 2.5'' LCD for on-board camera set-up, video aiming, camera status messages, and defined time-of-day for video start and stop. SD card storage up to 32GB (not included); includes GameFinder software. Runs on 8 AA batteries (not included).

great tool for pre-scouting stand sites
The camera works great and is a breeze to set up - which y'all probably know is not always the case with trail cams. A camera poll/post is a handy accessory. Also, download the most recent version of the viewing software from Day6Outdoors website as there is a glitch in the original software (disc that comes with camera) that freezes playback in files over 2G. Their customer service was prompt and helpful when I ran into that problem.

Great Product !
I have been using this plot watcher for 2 weeks now and it works great. Alkaline batteries are good so far but down 2 60%. Software easy to use and video/pictures are clear and easy to see. Little pricey but a must have. Think 199.99 would be a better price. Since great cameras go for that.

Not your average time lapse camera
This is a great investment it is called the Plotwatcher because it does that and more. I read earlier reviews from some that obviously do not own the camera. This camera does not use a motion trigger in anyway. it takes a picture based on the time increment you set continuously for the time periods you set it. so no worries about the game you want to capture passing outside of the range of the motion detector to trigger a picture. It then combines all frames into an HD movie. I set it up along with 2 Moultrie IR55 Cameras, one mounted right under the Plotwatcher Pro and more than half the game to include bobcats, turkey, hogs, and deer were missed by the combined cameras and captured by the Plot Watcher Pro. The big positive on this camera is the battery life. I ran it from 6am to 10 am with a time lapse pause that I set to come back on at 3pm until 9pm for 21 days on 8 AA batteries. It used 7.3 gig of storage and still had 85% battery life. The down side is, it will work at night, BUT since there is no flash or light it records darkness. I don't hunt at night and still have the availability of a regular game cam in its place. But also because it has no light you will not alert the game at anytime either. We have all had a deer or turkey walk up and stare right at the camera as the Led flash went off. there is no wakeup time so you don't miss your game because it moved to quickly through before the camera woke up and it hides well in the wood line with the camo and a design that is not a box. In 21 days I was able to see how the animals traveled in a new area, and was able to discern where to place my archery stand based on several buck's that crossed the area. By the way the majority of the buck’s crossing were not captured by the other 2 motion trigger game cams. I am purchasing 3 more for other shooting lanes and for scouting new areas. Great for security too! I put a pictureof a bobcat moving down the backside woodline of my plot and a buck that crossed 80 yards from my stand and 75 yards from the feeder so no camera was set anywhere near there and without this i would have missed him.

This camera is designed to watch large areas. How large depends on the available light and the contour of the land. Typically, it can see what you might see with your eyes. It can very easily cover everything that happens on a 5 acre food plot.
You can catch movement but not specific characteristics of a certain deer more than 100 yards or so. I use mine to strictly define travel patterns and then use my other cams to pinpoint a certain buck I want to chase.
Per the manufacturer, it is impossible to answer this question definitively. The best way to think about it is to imagine you are looking at it with the naked eye and you can see in a 52-degree fan angle from the surface of the camera. In other words, how well the camera will "see" is dependent upon how good and clear the lighting is at that time, how the terrain lies, etc. Typically, if you can see something with your eye, you will see it with the camera.
Another rule of thumb is that you can typically see deer moving at 300 yards. You can identify whether you are looking at a buck at about 150 yards. You can count points on a buck at about 75 yards. These are rough generalizations, but might help. In addition, you can go to their web site at www.day6outdoors.com and look at the accessory lenses that they sell. There you will see some sample pictures taken with each lens that show you what you might see at a given distance and width.
The PlotWatcher Pro comes with an adjustable strap that fits through slots molded into the back of the camera. In addition, there is a female receiver on the bottom of the camera that accepts a 1/4-20 threaded screw such as you typically find on a camera tripod mount.
I have been using mine on a regular camera tripod i painted camo. This way you can mount it anywhere even if there are no good trees. It has a built in Master Python lock holes moulded in the back plastic. You can also use bungee cords. Tree screw mounts are available that use the camera mount on the bottom.
there is a strap that mounts to a tree just like every other camera on the market. i am not aware of any after market mounts. i used a fence post i placed in the ground to cover a clear cut and it worked very well
Yes, that is what I like about it. It has two modes. One where it turns on when enough light is available for good photos or you can program the start time and stop time and it has an optional mid-day skip feature where it can hibernates for 2-3 hours in the middle of the day to save battery and memory but the battery and memory life is longer than needed. I let mine run from 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M.
