Looking for a new game camera that comes with a price tag under $100.00? Then check out the new Wildgame Innovations IR4. This 4.0 megapixel game camera shoots still pictures, as well as 30 second video clips. It is another low cost infared digital game camera that has hit the market, and with the number of high priced game cameras on the market today, it is nice to see new low cost offerings.
The trigger speed on this camera was timed at around 2.5 - 2.8 seconds. Not bad for a $100 camera. While it might not be the best camera for a trail with passing deer, it would do just fine on a food plot, feeder, or corn pile. For use on trails, it is recommended that the IR4 be placed facing down the trail, instead of facing across it. This will give the PIR time to acquire the deer and fire the pictures or video.
The battery life is decent from the 4 C-cell batteries. This compact camera has 19 infared emitters that reach out to around 30 feet. The handy mounting eyes make it easy to attach this camera to a tree with the included bungee cords. It also has a lock hole for added security.
It has 16 MB of onboard memory, but will accept standard SDRAM memory cards for expansion. The setup and configuration is pretty easy, using the onboard LCD.
This isn't a top of the line camera when it comes to features and performance, but what do you expect for $100.00. I'd put this camera in the same class as similar low cost offerings from competitors like Wildview. If you are in the market for a cheap game camera, this one is worth a look.
