Totally honest cam reviews!!!
First things first hunting does not have to be an expensive adventure to enjoy what it has to offer, people are looking for reliability at a lower cost without breaking their budgets.
This being said I personally buy Wildview Digital and don't think I will ever buy anything different again. Don't get me wrong I have bought Remington, and timber eye, moultrie IR40 and now have a stealth version too.
Why Wildview?? For the cost of $55.00 I can get a digital cam with burst modes or video. They can take SD cards 2 GB and have an optional 12 volt battery hookup.
For my use I need as many units as I can to stay out for LONG periods at a time. So I have adapted them with external 12 volt battery and my version of a 5 Watt solar panel. All for the cost of $122.00 per camera and I leave them out all year without ever having to recharge or change batteries. All I do is change out the SD card every 6 months.
Now for the camera break down:
Someone needs to look into producing a camera that does not transmit a noise that a deer can hear and they can!!
The Remington cam has very grainy black and white pictures in the night IR mode,
And the battery life was 2 weeks tops.
The Timber Eye was the same, except for the first unit I had gotten it never worked and sent it back with a full return of money!!! At least this was a good thing.
I personally would never buy either of these units again!!!
The Wildview has a pretty bright flash 20' at best. Some of the $300.00 units go as far as 50' Wildview also has a super slow trigger speed, but does cover a wide range of yardage especially in the day light hours like at least 35 yards.
I have not used the Moultrie I40 yet, but because of the non existent 12 volt external attachment I can already see that it won't be a winner for my use.
However for the Stealth cam, it is currently being used and thus far has worked pretty good, showing great color pictures both day and night.
