Having similar issues like last year. I watched deer in front of my S50i/modem for 30 or 40 mins, and may get one pic sometimes last season. Other times it seems to take pictures fine. Rarely did it take 3 pics set at 3 triggered with 10 second intervals. Which it should have with multiple deer feeding in front of it.
This year I connected an M40i to the modem. I wrote off the fact I wasn't getting many pics because it was just on a weed field. It's now plowed and planted and growing. I got a few pics over the last week, but not many. My grandchild walked all out in front of the camera Friday, no pics. My son and I walked all over it Saturday, no pics. Got one pic of deer at 20 yards later that day. Pic of a crow and some shadows. 2 night pics with the deer out of range nearly. Whats on the app is whats on the card. The time lapse works fine.
I changed the pic quality down to medium. No real change I guess. The last thing I know to try is a class 10 card. Is it possible the class 4 isn't fast enough, and there's a communication break down when its triggered, and not recording the pictures randomly? I keep the card low on data. I use the same card I did 2 yrs ago with a 990i connected to it with similar picture file sizes. It worked fine. Lots of pics.
I'm having to set time lapse to use some of the data I pay for. I probably used 10% the last 2 months. Maybe signal fluctuations are affecting the camera recording the file too? Out of ideas.
