About 4 years ago we bought a Scoutguard camera from Faunatec in Bairnsdale,

We got good service and quick delivery from them.  They also have a lot of
other useful fauna surveying equipment.

The Scoutguard has served our purposes fairly well although it is designed
more for larger animals.  Yellow-footed Antechinus have been identifiable
but  we've struggled with anything smaller.  Also the optimal focal distance
is about 2.5m.  We've found that battery life is pretty good, < 3months,
with 8 rechargeable batteries.  We use the movie setting quite a bit which
results in some interesting sequences.  A minor disadvantage with the model
that we have is that the time/date and file numbering resets to zero each
time it is turned off and the card changed. 

Another brand that is used by mammal surveyors here in Vic is the Reconyx.
>From what I've seen these are a bit more sophisticated in what they can do
but that also makes the setup process a bit more complicated.

I wish to set up a wildlife camera in the braided wetlands on our property.
A US friend has a Spypoint BF-6.  Do any Birding Aussers know of an
Australian equivalent?
