Stealth Cam ASTCSTCDS4K1C Final Thoughts

"Not necessary with this."

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Not to mention it worked great as a Infrared Point & Shoot Digital Camera too.

Stealth Cam STC-DS4K Final Thoughts

"I JUST LOVE THIS CAMERA."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Maybe it is for a small POS. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities.
