Don't get me wrong. I love my ScoutGuard SG550. It has a great compact design. The battery life and trigger speed are good. The image quality is nice. I could go on and on about it.
But there is one feature that I wish it had, and that is an external LCD. I have my SG550 in the woods right behind my house currently. I'm always out taking walks in the woods, and never know if it is worth pulling that memory card out to check the images or not. I pulled it the other day and only had a few pictures on it. I would have been better off saving my time and just leaving it in there for a few more days.
I guess that HCO had to make some sacrifices to keep this camera so small. The remote control is easy to use and can be quickly connected to check the camera status. The only problem is that you have to have it on you when you check your cam.
If that is the only complaint or drawback that I can identify with the Scoutguard SG550, then that says a lot for it. The SG550 might be small, but it is packed full of features.
