That is because it is a 2010 model and not the 2009 model, which was a great camera for the dollar. They changed company components for the 2010's. Figures as soon as a company has a good product they "upgrade it" and quality control goes into the toilet. The only thing that goes up is the price. They found that a number of the 2010's had blurry pics with any movement and NT pics were poor compared to 2009 models.
Just my opinion but you should decide whether you want a camera for scouting or one that takes nice pictures or like most, something that does a little of both but neither real well. If you are just looking for a game camera for pictures then buy a homebrew. There is a guy in NS who produces an excellent homebrew camera for pictures. I haven't seen better quality pictures on any other cam. Downside is that you have a range of about 15' and a 3 second trigger time. Personally I want a scouting camera with a detection range of 60'+, good FOV, etc and have less than a second trigger time, preferrably a lot less. With that you will have a lower MP picture and usually sacrifice color nighttime pics for grayscale.
