    I'd like to set up a game camera to see what is coming and going around the farm. Does anyone have one (or more)?

    If so, what do you like about it, what do you wish you could change? I'd like to get daylight as well as nighttime pictures. Is IR necessary for good night shots? Do you prefer motion sensor activated still shots or running loop video? Brands?

    I have game cameras for hunting. The motion activated works good. Make sure you do your research before buying one. Trigger speed is the most important thing to look for. I have not bought any in a few years so I couldn't tell you what is best now. They have changed a lot. IR is not necessary, a regular flash is fine, it spooks wildlife some but not enough to matter. When I have to replace my cameras I think I am going to go with a video system, but they are pricey.
