The build was done using the High Performance Wide Angle fresnal for fast motion detection. Detection distance can range upwards of 90 ft or more depending on conditions.

Effective flash range for the S40 camera is around 25 feet, both day and night pics are very clear and defined..

How does the S40 compare to a S600? I have a few 600's but getting hard to find and build, this is a great price !!!

Actually the S40 has some advantages besides price. Occasionally the 600 flash is too bright if an animal is very close which can result in almost a whiteout condition. The S40 flash is a tad weaker and some guys prefer it for that very reason.
Even though the 40 is a 4 megapixel camera verses the 600's 6 megapixels, the day shots are very comparable, imo.
