Well I should've listened to ya'll. I have a WGI IR6 thats 9 mos old and sensor range is 5 ft on it now; it was better but getting whiteout pics alot and after pulling batteries to reset camera, lost the sensor range. Now my white strobe flash 6,thats 3 mos old, is taking black pics at night, no strobe flash I'm guessing. Sent the IR6 back and they've still got it. Any advice on cause of black out pics? I'd like to have one camera few more weeks before sending it back.

Rain ruins WGI cameras from my experience. Their warranty is not bad but their product is crap IMO.

Yep, sorry to hear of your bad WGI cameras, one I bought in late September, a 69 dollar bargain, IR to boot, works fine. took 411 pictures on bunch of dollar store batteries. It needs a faster trigger speed but other than that, I think it be fine.

Have two that around 4 years old, starting to have issues with them not powerng up. Discovered one had leaking backup batteries. Going to try to clean it up, the other started working aging with brand new batteries, not the rechargables I have been using.
I'm being told by the "Master" that I am lucky they have lasted this long.

Yes, you are. Normally, you are lucky to get WGI cams to last a single season.

My very first Wildgame can from 07 finally died this season... And several others have continued working fine... Guess it is hit or miss.
