Treebark Cameras Model: Digital 1.3

Purchase: Got excited and bid on this unit at the silent auction table at our local Fish'n Game association banquet. It was quite the talk around the room, so I outbid the highest bidder at the last minute, at $475 Canadian $.
Things I like about the Treebark Cameras Digital 1.3 : I had always wanted one of these digital trail camera units. And since I hadn't owned a digital trail camera before, I can't really compare it to other digital trail cameras. But it is worlds away from the 35 mm one I owned. I like the fact that you can see the pictures right there, change out the card, check the batteries, and leave it for another 2 - 3 weeks. Picture quality is good. I saw the other review here and I see the res is 1280 x 960. I actually didn't know that the pictures were that high resolution, I then checked, and it is correct. It makes sense as the pictures are very crisp. Battery life is excellent. Wake up / shutter time is quick at 2 - 3 seconds. Then the camera shuts off until the sensor trips again.
What I don't like about the Treebark Cameras Digital 1.3 : A friend wanted one, so we could run 2 units, and he had to wait 2 weeks for the unit, as I guess Treebark cam only put out about 6 or 8 units per month. They should step this up a bit in my opinion and make them available in stores instead of mail order only. Instructions were in a leaflette style and not booklet, so mine tore up after a while. Beyond these few minor things, nothing else I don't like.
Digital 1.3 quality: The case is a work of art. 3-D camo they call it, looks great. Totally weather proof, could most likely pass the bathtub dunk test, although I won't try it LOL. I like the cable locking system that the case allows for. Someone would have to cut down the tree to get this camera down. Another security feature is the bluff warning lable on the side of the unit. It says the unit can be traced by GPS and warns to leave the unit in place.
Digital 1.3 summary: I like it. I am just now reading the reviews of other units, and am pleased the both myself and my friend chose the Treebark digital trail camera.
