Loved it, when it worked
Well about two weeks ago i purchased this camera... it was much much better than my Wildgame innovations s2, until it went insane:
I came out to check the pictures and it had 15 (3burst shots, brought the SD card up to the house and had lots of nice night photos on it... brought the sd back to the camera. loaded it and went to arm the camera and it starts taking pics w/o counting down like its supposed to, so i went into it and tried fixing settings but it takes pics about every 5 seconds so you cant get anywhere... it now just freezes the screen and takes pics... i even turned it upside down on the floor and you can hear the faint click it makes about every 5 seconds... anyways working on that with Primos ATM, hopefully i just got a dud. so your wondering why i gave this a 5 star review at this point, well here's why:
-Takes awesome night pictures!
-Trigger time is very fast... birds can't even escape it's grasp
-it is very simple to use/set up and has lots of wonderful options like shot bursts and adjustments to how many LED's you use
-Battery life is awesome, 2 weeks in the woods and its at 96%
-Day pics are even better than the night pics
-Camo- nice when all the black ones tend to draw thieving paws' attention
-Pre molded hole (i'd recommend masterlock's python)
-i also like that it counts down from 30 til' it arms so you have some time to figure out if its where you want it ( my WGI just kind of goes into sleep mode so you shut the door and run i guess)
Cons (other than the obvious):
-There is a click when the shutter opens... deer seem to only notice it if they are within 5 ft.
-The mounting strap idea is absolutely terrible! i wish they'd tossed a couple holes in it for bungie straps like the WGI has
-I dont know if it effects anything, but i did notice after rainfall the bottom lip of the camera tends to have water drops there that gather... wasnt an issue for me at least.
Overall- great camera wish they'd put a bit more thought into the mounting of it because im not buying their bracket for [...] bucks, hopefully that will come on the next model, and if they make the shutter silent it will be the perfect cam for the money! i'd Recommend this to anyone... really the click isnt that bad and ive only had 1 3-burst shot where a deer looks up from 1st shot and runs in second shot (although the deer was probably 2 ft from camera). looking forward to the one Primos sends me for the one that broke. Don't be put off by the click... Get this camera-its the only one you'll ever buy!
-Edit, Got my new one and it's working brilliantly, 2 nights resulted in 81 pics, very nice night pics and caught a squirrel on the move during the day, quick shutter speed :)
-Edit: After 2 straight weeks in the rain there's no water on the lower lip of the new camera, wondering if thats why the other one broke, either way, its still working great :)

Primos Truth Cam 46 Camera
By Deb R.
This camera has worked well for me. With rechargeable batteries, I've taken 429 photos in a week and still had 50% of the battery life left. As for the external power port, I tried it, but the battery didn't last as long as the internal rechargeables did! If someone has a solar panel the external power might be a good option.
The camera is sometimes slow switching between day and night photos. At dusk the photos are sometimes too dark and at dawn they may be white(I have another brand that does the same thing). However the trigger speed is very fast capturing animal movement easily.
One thing I don't like is the limited delay choices for taking photos. There is only a 1 minute delay and 30 minute delay option between shots, none in between. Other cameras I have offer a 5 and 10 minute delay.
Overall, this is a good camera. I've used it now for 8 weeks and captured some great buck photos!! I would definitely recommend it to a friend!!

A Must Read Review
By Marc Eastern Ohio
I have 2 Primos 60 that have been in the woods for 2 solid years and have worked flawlessly. I needed 2 more and decided to go with the 46 because I set the 60's down to 5mp. Now here is the ticket to set them up. I have the swivel mounting brackets so I can get them up about 8 foot off the ground then go on Ebay and get you some ammo pouches cost about 3 bucks a piece on Ebay and 6 volt 4.5ma or 5ma battery's cost about 12 bucks they fit perfect in the ammo pouches 2 drywall screws through the pouch into the tree and your good to go. I also have solar panels that 2 screw in the tree for mounting to keep them charged. It is a little bit of a expense but after it is done all you have to do is check your sd card no maintenance at all. and the camera being up in the air tends to not spook the deer at all since they are more worried whats on the ground. Really haven't had any deer ever even look straight at the camera after the shutter goes off on the first picture. Seems like putting it 8' up takes care of the inferred lights and the shutter click also the sticky fingers might not be looking up. These cameras have worked above my expectation. You read reviews and find people that have great luck with the product and some that got it out of the box and it's junk and they will return it and not get another one to give the product a chance. From what I have read Primos will go above and beyond to try to stand behind their product. We live in a world of Hi Tech electronics and I am sure not 1 of us has not bought a gadget that did not work or was total junk so that being said Take my word these cameras for the money are great. Hope this helped as I hardly ever write reviews but wanted to give my input in the product and my mounting.
