I received my covert scouting cameras in the mail yesterday and I must say, I am impressed. Throughout my hunting career I have owned quite a few scouting cameras, and I have continually had issues with them. I rely on my trail cameras a lot throughout the year, and nothing is more frustrating than when I have issues with them. Most of the cameras that I have owned have slow trigger speeds, poor battery life, non-compact, and are difficult to set-up on the fly. I realize that there are a lot of companies out there, however I refuse to spend a ton of money on scouting cameras. That may be the reason that I have a lot of negative things going on with my cameras, but I believe that you shouldn’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a high quality camera. If you’re like me, you may also have had issues because you refuse to spend 200 plus on a scouting camera. I am going to touch base on why those features are so important in picking out a perfect trail camera.
I have done a lot of research on specific trail cameras, and I could not find a better camera for the money, than the cameras www.covertscoutingcameras.com makes. I recently received two MP-E5 cameras, and out of the box I was impressed with the size of the camera. I can fit 2 of these cameras in the front pocket of my hoodie, with ease. The MP-E5 is the lower end camera that covert makes, but it exceeds all of my expectations. The camera retails for $115.99 which is well worth the money, if your looking for a quality camera. The trigger speed on these cameras is wicked fast, and the setup on the camera is as simple as it gets. The picture quality is excellent.

The camera also has a format function, which is very important in my experience. I haven’t had the cameras long enough to really put them through the works. However, I don’t foresee any real concerns. I am really anxious to see how the battery life holds up. I should have waited a few weeks to post this, but I really couldn’t wait to let everyone know about these guys.
