For the life of me, I know of no other product that has such high failure rates and still stays in business, but when it comes to trail-cameras it seems people will buy the snot out of cheap trail-cams even though they run a real high risk of getting a poor quality product.


I have freind that got one of the cheap wildgame cameras for christmas..The pics he showed me on his computer was good enough for me to try one when I get ready...i.e., the quality and price fit my needs..even if I have to buy a new one every year,...that and throw in one or two just walking off and they really start to look appealing...
I have nothing against quality and long term value but it is like anything else...I am not a carpenter and don't make my living at it so I am not going to fork out the money for a high end hammer just to swing at what few nails I am going to be missing!.....

I bought a 6 pack of Wildgame Innovations Camera's and IMO they work just fine. My batteries last about 3 to 4 weeks and I haven't had one problem with them. I did buy 6 1mg cards so that I just trade them out. I use mine year round. There are a lot of trail camera's out just shop around. I learned by trail and error. Good Luck...

Again, IF YOU GET A GOOD ONE you'll like many of the cheaper cameras. From what I've seen, when they work, I really like the Wildview cameras. I recommend them as a good "starter" cam. The problem is, most companies are seeing a 30% out-of-the-box failure rate. But for many, it's worth it for only $50-90 invested even if you have to return a camera or two, or have cameras fail after a month or two of use.

You can buy a bunch of Wildview cameras for the price of a single "quality" cam.

Good post.

Good info BSK.

My IR4 works great. Had it since 20 Dec '09. I know... Barely a month. It has survived the 3rd coldest start to winter on record for Tennessee.

Plan on throwing the dice and buying another one.

I read a review that said the're two different IR4 models; one with watch batteries for date/time stamp and one without. Fellow said be sure to get the one with. Also learned the hard way the IR4 only excepts up to 4 GB cards. Plenty for me as I retrieve it bi-monthly.

At about $75-90 per camera, you can go through plenty of failures and still come out ahead compared to a top-end camera that runs $600+!

The 6 volt from moultrie doesnt hold a candle to the newer ones using 6 d's....they have auto shut off and the batts last close to 60 days.

so far I have a 2010 model of the Ir4 out and its taken close to 900 photos...its been out for nearly 1 month and the batteries were at 3/4 full two days ago. For having this camera were I do it fits the bill nicely. If it gets stolen/or just quits I am not out much. If I get a solid year out of it great. Mine lights up the night very well. better then my sg or bushnell cams

and I just got a ir8 in yesterday hope to get good results out of it too.

The wildgame cameras take decent pics but are horrible on batteries. I have the exterior battery pack and it works good.

I have the ir4 and it worked great but where you put the batteries the plastic behind the springs broke I called wildgame and the fixed it for nothing and I had the camera about 2yrs. They have great customer service.
