Come on guys. It's kind of hard to be disappointed in Wildview cameras if they last a year or so, shoot they only cost about $50-60 apiece.

I own 5 of them, they've lasted 3 years and have taken good pictures. If they go down tomorrow, I've got my money's worth!


Maybe, but I'm on year 4 with 3 of my Bushnell Trophy Cams that cost me about $150/ea. I dare say that getting a game camera to snap a picture when it should w/decent clarity for $50 and getting 3 years use out of it isn't typical is all I'm trying to say.

My Bushnell cameras have been pretty reliable with good battery life. They are 3 years old.

I only had mine since February and I got it on clearance for $40 or $50, regular price $129

You get what you pay for. Either build your own or pay out alot of money for a good one if you really enjoy it.

Primos makes an awesome camera Cat. I had a Wildview that lasted about 4 months. Took good pics while it lasted. When the camera goes bad it heats up which is why the ants bore into it. The EXACT same thing happened to mine.
