RECONYX HyperFire High Output Covert IR 3.1 Megapixel Digital Scouting Camera
Best Camera on the Market
This camera is the fastest highest quality camera on the market. I have used Reconyx cameras for years and they are without a doubt the best. They will outlast any camera out there. I have never had one malfunction and they retain their value if you decide to sell them and buy an updated model. They can be easily locked to the tree with a Master Python Lock, which I highly recommend. These are very pricey cameras and if I had the choice of one Reconyx or 5 other cameras, I would choose one Reconyx. I buy mine when Bass Pro offers the 6 pay plan, its easier on the wallet when you can spread the cost out over 6 months.

bad customer service
i have dealt with jamie from reconyx a few times. he has been less then helpful. its hard to even get them to call you back. i own over 15 of these cameras they usually work good, but because of the poor customer service i've received its very difficult to recommend this product

I have also reviewed the 500 as 5 stars. Great camera. A ton of pictures. Great battery life. I see a review or two where the post says it is a bad night camera. I think (as you will see by my posts) that the only picures that are bad are those beyond the range. The camera is very specific how far you can take pictures at night. If you try to take a picture from 50 yards it isn't going to be great. But the photos I show here have deer in them at 10 yards and about 25 yards. Both are clear. Great camera. I have 4 Reconyx (2 500s and 2 600s#. I am not sure you need to buy the 600. But, if you want to spend the extra $100 go for it. Here is a good comparison two photos #1 600 and 1 500). I have no regrets and even with 4 I will probably buy one or two more for my hunting property. One last point, as in my 500 post. The software that comes with the camera is very cool. You can frame your property, your food plots, etc. from a satelite view and then show where the cameras are which allows you to track movement, etc. GREAT PRODUCT!

Worth the cost!
I have had quite a few cameras over the years ( CB,Pemo,ect) and none have captured as may events as this one has. I now have 2 and will be getting a 3rd. My first one is three years old and have had no problems with its operation in the heat or cold. I would recomend useing the lithium batterys and a 8 gig card because you are going to need it for all of the pictures you are going to get. I have gotten pic of deer fighting in the hyper fire mode that is unbelievable. In one years time i have gotten 35-45 thousand pic on 1 set of batterys most at night. They are the best cams on the market, you get what you pay for.
