I am a wildlife ecologist and much of my research deals with understanding predator impacts on prey behavior. For several years I have used trail cameras to provide data for evaluating these impacts. Although other cameras have provided useful images, the features of the HCO VH400 have greatly improved the quality of data I am able to collect. For my applications, battery life is excellent and the ability to adjust flash intensity makes it possible for me to detect small mammals within our foraging patches. In the past, inability to adjust flash intensity often made identification impossible. I have been well pleased with these cameras and with service and support of HCO.
