|M-80 vs Dollar Bill|
- Size: The fist thing I noticed about this camera is the size of it. It's small! Yes, that is one reason why I wanted it, but still getting it on my hands for the first time was a little awkward (in a good way) in comparison to the more traditional size of trail cameras.
- Construction / Casing: The construction and durability of camera seems to be par with most of what Moultrie is producing at the current time. One thing I am happy to see is that the housing/case and camera and one piece (compared to my older camera where the camera latched into the case), I know I had my issues before with the case. I think that having a camera that is connected to the case, allows the camera to have more protection from the elements. Where as in the example of my older Moultrie , if the seal on the case wears out or becomes damaged the case can fill with water or snow and damage the camera, that would prove more difficult to happen with the M-80.
- Mount: This was the only area I am unsure of at this point. I have used a Moultrie I-65 before with this type, it is a nylon strap with a hard plastic clasp. I know it holds it to the tree fine, but I am worried about the longevity of this clasp and strap as well as the how it will fair in the snow and cold of winter.
- Overall: I am very happy and excited to get this camera out and in action. Only time will tell how it holds up, but as you all know if there's anyone out there that can test how well this trail camera will work, it's me. In a matter of days Moultrie's M-80 will be tested against Foggy Mountain. Look for a full review in the months to follow.
