I bought a micro 4 this fall and I love the little thing. It takes great pictures and is very lightweight and easy to use. I also was having a problem with blurry or half a deer pics for awhile. Naturally I thought this was immediately the cameras fault but after reading a article one day about commonly mistakes with trail cameras I realized simply the angle of my trail camera was wrong. I had the camera positioned on the side of the trail. This resulted in only getting pics of deer passing by and the classic half deer pic. I changed the angle to a different tree looking directly down the trail. This not only increased my number of pictures but I also havnt had a blurry or half of a deer pic again. Please try this and see if it works for you. My only complaint with the camera is the trigger speed could be a little faster. Other than that great camera!

The Wildlife Innovations and Wildgame cameras are actually good for about 6 months, then they turn to sh*t. The IR will stop functioning, then the screen that's used to program the camera will burn out. I've had 4 of the Wildlife Innovations and every one of them did just exactly as I described. The one Wildgame camera did exactly as the others. I now run nothing but Moultrie and Cuddeback and I even have one of the Moultries that has developed the problem with the set up screen going blank, but other than that it still takes great pictures. If I could afford them, I'd have nothing but Cuddeback cameras. Mine is one of the old Capture models with the flash, and it's still the best camera I've ever owned.

Ihave a couple WGI and for the most part pleased. (2 @ $65 each)
One I bought about 4 years ago, the other maybe 1 or 2.
Can't beat it for the money.
Takes decent night pics (if the animal isn't moving too fast), day pics are great.
My first had started to die, I took it apart and found a wire was corroded. I soldered it back and its still working.

I'll get over 8000 pics on 1/2 - 2/3 battery life. I try not to let it go dead, i have read that WGI could corrupt your card if you do which isn't a big deal IF you realize its corrupted. Its when you don't know and put it back in the unit, go back and check it 2 weeks later and you find out that you only have 3 pics
