I use 3 burst shot,not sure what the delay is.If the first shot is blurry with the next two you can work out what moved across in front of the camera.

A 3 shot burst mode with a 30 second delay is a good setting to use all year round. I wouldn't recommend using any less than a 30 second interval period unless using the trailcam for security applications. Some of the newer trailcams allow you to change the Shutter Speed from normal to Blur Reduction so for nighttime shots Blur Reduction will improve the night time picture quality.

ive found them quite tricky to set up, i like the idea of a fast detection speed, had a mindfuk of trouble trying to workout how high to set and what angle(jamming sticks in behind it). then thinking i had it sorted and coming back to photos of the tops of deer heads, also had  it set on a big wallow, the friken pigs were rubbing on the tree it was mounted too and changing the angle,   Grin

Bought my first one just before the roar got it from usa Cabelas site Stealth PX18  14mp landed it for $125nz got some awesome shots of sika stags ,if this site wasn't hard for people like me I would post photos ! A guy down the road has about 14 cams that's is all he does gos around them like a possum line hes got some  very cool shots. I have mine up about 6ft facing south ,3 shots then 15second wait time ,just bought another off Amazon seems ok I set them up around home first to get them operating how a want and adjust to suit ,wire cable to tree is a good thing to good cams have a cable locking hole.Night shots are the hardest to get right  Good luck .
