Pretty solid nighttime video quality, and decent daytime video with High Definition playback. Good color
on the daytime pictures.
A decent amount of blurry or slightly out of focus daytime pictures, and we just completely dislike the
strap for hanging these cams.
Overall the Moultrie M-880i is a pretty nice camera for the price. At around $160 depending on where
you shop, it’s fairly comparable to others in the same price range, and even beat out a few other much
higher priced cameras.
We leave our cameras out all year long, and with the exception of when in video mode, we get almost a
full season out of our batteries, but that also depends on the amount of pictures you take too. Lots of
pics, less battery life, but that’s with any camera. When we’re in video mode and capturing 30 second
clips at a time, we’ll average a few months between battery changes.
One thing I really do not like is the strap that comes with it. I’d much rather have the old style strap with
a buckle as I feel it’s almost quieter than trying to hang the cam with it bouncing on the trees while
strapping it down. It’s not a deal breaker though as we’re switching over to the mounts we made which
you’ll see in the video version of this review.
The durability of these cams also seems to be pretty good. We’ve never had a problem with them yet
with roughly a season and a half of pretty much continuous use. They seem to be sealed a whole lot
better than their own brand of cameras from the past, and even some of the current competitors as
we’re not getting an ant infestation inside of our cams like we used to get which did destroy a few of our
Overall we feel as if we’ll continue to use these cameras, and even recommend them to our own friends
and family while continuing our search and reviews of other trail cameras.
