Moultrie Handheld Digital Picture Viewer
Good but not universal
I bought one of these to read my cards right down in the woods. It works great to go thru my four cameras and get a quick look at what is going on. Major problem though, if you are using Cuddeback cameras as I am. You have to take the chips home and re format them on your computer every time you stick them in the reader. Therefore you are not saving any time or effort. I called cuddeback with my suspicions after all 4 of my cuddebacks failed to function after using the reader. I have 2 Captures and 2 Attack IR's. They confirmed that when you put the chip into the reader, it automatically formats it to the Moultrie format which is different. Prior to talking to them, I freaked and was about to throw my older Cuddebacks away, thinking they were broken. Thank God for bloggers on the internet. I tried the cameras with no chip and they worked fine as they did later when I reformated the chips. The Lady at Cuddeback said improperly formated chips can cause numerous problems with their cameras including very short battey life and indicator lights that won't turn off. I am going back to chip swapping as I have done for years.

I used my digital camera to review my SD cards from my trail cams until I bought this viewer. It fits in my pocket. It serves my purpose well. Battery life could be better,but over all good product.

Good Product but needs work
i bought this during deer season to just check the cameras in the woods and not have to switch out the cards and check on the computer. it is a very quality product ive had mine wet several times and in the rain and it still works.the zoom feature only zooms in to the middle of the screen so you can not zoom in on deer that are far to one side of the picture. now if i see anything on the sd card by useing this prodect i take the card home them take a closer look at it... overall this is a very tough product and good to have but it needs a little work

Very well made
Unit is slow to up-load if you have many Pic's but, it will get them there. View screen is OK. This unit is tough, I lost it on way back from a camera and found it two weeks later, after cold and rain it worked fine and has not stopped. Use good batteries and the life is great.
