Hey, this is a quick post to let you know about a deal that I just saw on the Wildgame Innovations 6.0 MP infrared digital game camera. Amazon currently has this game camera for $49.99 with Free Shipping. That is $100.00 off of the regular price, and a 67% discount.
I don't know how long this deal will last, but I am sure it won't last for long. You can find it by clicking Here.
I personally own one of these. While I may not recommend you pay full price for this camera, I would definitely recommend it considering the $50.00 price.
This is the new Micro line of game cameras that WGI has apparently released as a replacement for the popular X6C. It is a 6.0 MP infrared digital game camera, that will give you pictures or videos during the daytime or at night with no white flash. It has 30 infrared emitters and has a flash range of 50 feet.
It uses an LCD display that is 2 inches by .7 inches, that can be viewed from the front of the camera. The buttons for programming the camera are located within a trap door on the bottom of the camera. I found it a little awkward to change the camera settings, as you need to remove the camera from the tree in order to access the buttons while still being able to view the front facing LCD screen while programming. This is something I can live with though, because I typically will program the camera before hanging it and don't typically change the configuration once it is set up.
The trigger isn't bad. It beats most Stealth Cams, but doesn't come anywhere close to the Cuddebacks. The videos are 640x480 at 30 frames per second, and you get the time, date, and moon phase stamped on each of your images. It runs on 8 AA batteries, and I get about 4-5 weeks of operation off of a single set of batteries. I think the battery life could be a bit better, but it will accept an external rechargeable battery. It will also accept up to a 16 GB SDRAM card, which I definitely like because I tend to run this in video mode and the video files are larger than the image files.
The other thing that I like about this camera, is that it is small. It is approximately 6 inches tall, by 3.5 inches wide, by 2.25 inches deep. The thing I don't like about this camera, is that there is no integrated lock hole that would allow you to secure the camera with a padlock. You will need to get a security lock box for it, if you are concerned about game camera theft in your area. But for fifty bucks, I'd roll the dice.
