I have a couple of cudde's and love the flash, trigger speed and quality of pics. but I hate the battery compartment and hate the fact that it does not have just an on off switch instead of all the friggin button pushing to get to what you want.
battery plate is the biggest issue. it comes loose and loses contact with the batts. both of mine now have a wedge in to keep the battery plate in place.
have had moutries over the years and they were all garbage so I wont try any more
dont have one yet but I have heard absolutely nothing but great things about david helmlys cams. www.trailwatcher.net
