Moultrie M-990i Review

As a service to consumers who want to buy the best trail cam to fit their needs, we provide comprehensive reviews of the most popular cameras on the market. Some of the most dependable cameras on the market are those made by Moultrie. With 30 years of experience, Moultrie is known for its products that are reliable, durable, top performing and affordable. With an insight for innovation, Moultrie continues to develop new and superior products year after year like the Moultrie’s Game Spy Digital Cameras with infrared flash.

The Moultrie M-990i mini game cam is a perfect example of the high quality cameras that are manufactured by Moultrie. The M990i has a no glow infrared flash, takes up to 10 megapixel images, has a 2 inch internal viewer and sells for under $200.

A unique feature of the Moultrie m990i is that has a night time detection range of 70 feet for capturing high-quality images from a distance. Seventy feet detection range for this camera is longer than most trail cams. The affordable Moultrie m990i is one of the best game cams available on the market today.

The M-990i captures clear high-resolution up to 10 megapixel images and as a bonus it also captures HD video. The high definition video with audio captures clear sound, either day or night, so you can get a full experience of what animals are in the area or feeding at your plot. When the Moultrie M-990i captures an image it records the temperature, moon phase, date and time, to provide the information needed about when the image or video was captured.

The camera’s resolution can be set at either 0.5, 2, 4 or 10 megapixels. This camera also has a digital zoom. The digital zoom function can be set to 1.5x, 2x or 3x. The camera’s no glow infrared flash technology will not be noticed by the game in the area.

The no glow infrared flash minimizes the amount of red light seen by animals. The m990i’s Illumi-Night sensor works with the infrared flash to take brighter, clearer night time pictures. The M-990i also has a time-lapse function that allows you to capture images over the course of a day to see when wildlife is the active.

Game cams with no glow infrared technology are highly recommended. Cameras with no glow infrared flash are virtually invisible to humans as well as animals. No glow infrared flash is one of the best flash technologies to have because these cameras can be used for security surveillance applications as well as wildlife surveillance. People or game passing by a Moultrie m990 mini would not know the camera just captured a picture of them.

The Moultrie m990i’s FastFire shooting mode takes four images per second with a trigger speed of less than one second which is quick enough to catch even the fastest animals. The recovery time for this camera is 2.5 seconds which is the fastest recovery time of any trail cam on the market today.
