I've got more than a dozen of these cams and have had more over the years. They used to be great for the $, and had great customer service when you had a dud.
The quality has gone to pot. Out of the last 6 I've bought, 3 have been duds in different ways. One won't turn on, the other the sensor works up to a whopping 5 feet, and the other one says on on the battery drains in about 3 days. One is a different model, so not unique to the model. Their customer service stinks now too, if you can get them to answer the phone. I was informed they have no way to repair their own products. And won't replace unless receipt within a yr (should've kept.) The guy on the phone wouldn't hardly listen to the problem. But they suggested I could take their product to a local camera shop and they maybe could help. THANKS FOR THE GENIUS ADVICE.
I know I got the discount up front with the cheap purchase price. But I will never buy another one, and wanted to pass my experience along to others. I suggest you look for deals on other brands, because I will.

They have less than $12.00 in the units. Cheaper to send you a new one than to have repair folks on payroll. Just for $hits and giggles take one of your broken units and crack it open and look inside at the "fine Chinese craftmanship" and soldering skills. You will be amazed. I do not see how they ever work. A insider friend I have at one of the commercial camera companies told me the return rate was 6 out of 10. I guess with a $12 cost in the camera and selling them to you guys for $85 they are still turning a profit. Good luck with your next choice in cameras.

Go with Primos Cameras. 1 sec trigger speed with extremely long battery life. Quality is top knotch. I would go with Primos over almost every brand of camera there is.

The earlier ones I had are still going strong, the newer ones seem to crap out with a quickness.

I agree completely. At first, they were a company making some of the better "cheap" cameras. Not anymore.
