With so many time-lapse video cameras hitting the market, it’s easy to get confused as to which one is the best. When deciding which camera to choose, let the facts speak for themselves. The Day 6 PlotWatcher Pro Time-Lapse Video Camera was not only the first of its kind, but it boasts such an extensive battery life that its able to capture up to 1 million images on a single set of batteries, something no other time-lapse video camera on the market can do.
Like the original PlotWatcher, the PlotWatcher Pro takes the guesswork out of hunting by recording daytime game activity around potential hunting locations revealing the best time and place to hunt. The PlotWatcher Pro takes a picture every 5 or 10 seconds and saves the pictures as an HD video. You can even set the camera to record images every second — no other time-lapse camera can do that either!
GameFinder Software with MotionSearch software allows you to review one 12-hour day of footage in 2-4 minutes. The competition requires that you manually go into the images folder on the SD card and select the images you want to review. Unlike the GameFinder Software, that arranges the images by the day and lets you review each day at a time, the competition’s image files are not organized by day or event.

Here are a few additional tips from the Day6 staff that will help you get even more useful information from your camera.
Set the camera up to review possible stand locations, fields, roads and power lines.
If possible, position your camera facing north or south to prevent the sun from backlighting your subject and making it a non-descript silhouette in the photo.
If you set the PlotWatcher in open areas such as fields, food plots, clear cuts, power lines etc…, set your camera to take footage every 10 seconds. If you set up the PlotWatcher in thicker cover, choose every five seconds to double your chance of getting great pictures of the animals you seek.
Place a PlotWatcher camera at another nearby hunting location while you hunt. Then you can check the camera when you leave to find out what happened at the other location while you were away.
