I know there are at least a few trail camera users here so I figured I would share this. A video I made on examples of what we might be missing by not utilizing the video capabilities of trail cams. I hope you like it.
Nice work on putting that comparison video together! I switched over to only video a couple years ago, definitely brings you some things you otherwise miss. Also, gives you much better views of judging bucks vs. a fuzzy night time still pic.
I couldn't even tell you how to set my cameras up for still shots - I exclusively operate them on video mode - usually 30 second clips. You have to be aware of the setting though or you risk using up all the space on your SD card. This past summer/fall I set up a camera in an elk bedding area and got hours of 30 second clips of the same small herd as they got up and milled around and such. Video also records sound that you don't get from stills like deer grunting and elk bugling. You can always take a screen shot from the video to text your buddies if you want. Great video - thanks for sharing!
I pretty much run just still pic mode because i have cameras all over gell and back that i often dont check for 6 months to over a year. One cam in my back yard i run on video, and it can hold 256g sd cards.
