i have 3 wildview digital cameras, wont buy another one though, they havent lasted me long. one shorted out after a rain storm and is completely broke down, wont even power up. another one, a no-flash version, worked great for about 2 months. then all of a sudden it stopped working, i have no idea what happened. the third one i have still works, but it is the cheapest model of wildview available and i dont like the picture quality, so i dont use it. over all, they are cheap, but i wont buy them anymore, i dont think they are durable or reliable.
i have 2 moultrie D-40 cameras, i love those cameras. i have had the one for a couple years and have had flawless performance. they are about 100 dollars a piece and work great. easy to set up, they have excellent range, i too get pictures of deer at night 50 feet away. i just bought another one a couple weeks ago and have had no problems. my batteries last about 3 months, and i get at least a couple pictures a day under normal conditions. when it is real rainy or stormy i dont always get as many, but point being that i have found the battery life to be very good. i would like to try a cuddeback, but even the cheap ones are a little pricey for me right now. but i have had zero problems with my moultrie cameras, and that's all i have tried.
