    Default Trail Camera-Viewing Screen??

    Hi guys,
    Im looking at buying a new camera and really love all the spypoint I have owned (last long and uses AA batery). I saw at Canadien Tire they are selling all sort but the Tiny-7 caught my eyes, black LED, 8mp, video w/ sound etc. I made some research on the net it seems to be not bad but it as a picture viewing screen at the back.
    So my question is, if anyone has had a camera that has this feature, is it good in our freezing climate.
    Thanks for the help, and if you have any other suggestion it's appreciated

    Rack, take it from me there is no such thing as an LCD display that works well at cold temps unless it is Mil Spec. I have tested them and I can tell you there are all sorts of issues. Get a model with removable media, buy a tablet with a compatible slot. You can use the tablet for other things and spend less money on the cam. I use an e-reader. I keep it warm in my coat and bring it out when I check the cam. With a second card you can drop in the new one and take the other to view while you are sitting and waiting for the game to show up.

    I have an SD card reader for my Iphone 5 and it works great I just swap the cards and review in my stand or back at the truck. Weights nothing and easy to pack in

    The other advantage is that once you set the cam, let it take a pic. Then you pull the card and have a much larger screen to give you a good idea of whether or not you like the coverage and pointing position.

    The other thing I can think of is the case where you have multiple cams. With a single reader that you can walk away with the data and you have all the pics from the cams without having to move them or walk back to put them in place.

    I just keep my point and shoot on me and pop the card in to have a look, otherwise I have my laptop in my backpack and download them there if I want to keep them.

    I carry a digital camera with me any time out in the bush(always interesting things to take a photo of).So-I just stick the SD card from the TrailCam into my camera, and see what happened. Small, handy, and true multipurpose.

    I bought one of the spypoint models they had on sale at sail for $160. It has the viewing screen on the back and is fine in the cold so far. I love it because it's helps me when I am setting up the camera to find the perfect view for where I want to capture.
