This was my first Moultrie purchase and I bought this camera based on the manufacturer name. Unfortunately I did not try to use the camera for 6 months and when I did, it would not take the first picture. By then I no longer had my receipt to return it to the store. I could have paid to return it Moultrie but rather than throw more good money after bad, I wound up just throwing it away. Needless to say I will not purchase another camera from them.

I own several Moultrie Camera's and 6 Moultie Feeder heads. I guess you can say, I trust Moultrie. Or at least I used to trust them. I recently bought 4 Moultrie A-5 Trail Camera's. I put them in the field to do there job, and much to my surprise, they do not work. The first try, they took pictures for 7 days and stoped taking pictures. The next try they took pictures for 1 or 2 days and stopped taking pictures. My third try, 3 of them took no pictures, and one took pictures for 1 day. Oh yea, don't let me forgeet to mention that, one of the camera's only takes half a picture, because the filter mechanism is stuck infront of the lens and blocks half of every shot.
I call Moultrie customer service and spent time going through all the troubleshooting. You know, things like: Did you turn the power on? Did you put batteries in? Did you put in a SD card? Did you format the card? Blah Blah Blah..... I explained that I had researched the problem through Google and that alot of guys were having very similar problems with the same camera. The A-5 simply doesn't work consistantly. She agreed that,"it is our base model with the fewest options". After 30 to 40 minutes of this, I finally decided that If I could return these four cheaper cameras, that I would be happy by paying the difference and upgrading to one of the higher priced models. I have several other Moultrie camera's that work great. The supervisor says that "we can't do that, but we can have you send them in for repair".
Well anyways, Here is my plan. I will send these four camera's in for repair, which will undoubtedly take several weeks, and leave four of my feeders with no camera. I will recieve them back eventually, and they may even work. But I will not rely on Moultrie to aid me in the ever increasingly costly sport of bagging the big Buck.
To make a long story short, DO NOT BUY THE MOULTRIE A-5.
The problems with these camera's are well documented online from many different sources. Just google "Moultrie A-5 stops taking pictures" I hope my story can save one or all of you from falling for the new A-5. It simply does not work, and the company is unwilling to help me overcome the issue in a timely fashion.

I was given this as a present. First couple of months into the season it worked fine. As it got colder and colder it began to not work all the time and drain batteries. It does take a pretty good picture. It is just not as durable as I need it to be. If it is not taking pictures because it is broken then I can not track and study the deer movement. Also having to put new batteries in constantly is expensive. the good thing is that it does take good pctures.

I bought this product with the notion that Moultrie typically makes a decent product. Ignoring reviews outside of this site that typically said it was garbage, I went ahead and bought it. It took exactly 609 pics and stopped working. BPS should pull this product. Do yourself a favor and buy something different. Buying this cam is a gamble as to whether or not it will work, or for how long.
