I picked up one of these cameras a couple of weeks ago for my cabin. I have game cameras but they are just not fesable for me to use inside the cabin without being seen/stolen. So I thought i would write a review in case anyones else was looking for something like this. NOTE>>>I am no way affiliated with the place I bought the camera from or the makers of the camera.
Here is where I ordered from.http://eyespysupply.com/air-ionizer-sel ... ght-v.html
I checked all around and they had the best price and I could pay with paypal. I wanted the paypal option in case something went wrong and I had to make a dispute. I ordered the color/bw option. I paid $6.00 extra to have it delivered 2 day UPS. That was a mistake...I found out later by just using the free shipping it would have arrived in 2 days anyhow.
Camera arrived on time with no damage. I didnt like the case the camera came in. It was just a black box. It would have been better if the inside was molded to hold the camera in place. Its just put inside and can slide around during shipping.
Directions...to put it simple they suck. They are confusing and I had to read thru a bunch of times.
Camera...Cosmetics good. You would be hard pressed to know there was a camera in there.
Placement of light sensor is not good. Its tucked away on top so to get color pics you have to have light hitting it from above. With just the dog sitting next to it the camera would switch to b/w mode.
Notice the add says the fan blows air. That is not true. There is no fan inside to blow air. I called eyespy and they gave me the number to the company that makes the camera. Company said there is no fan to blow thru vents...just a small one for the components to keep them cool. Called eyespy back and told them what I was told and asked why they advertised it on there web site. Was told they would look into it and if its not true they would change the ad. Hasnt been changed in over 2 weeks.
Tried out camera at home and it went haywire. It would record for no reason, it wouldnt record when it was suppose to, and kept going from b/w to color for no reason. Took it up to the cabin and re-read the directions for the 20th time. Left in cabin for 2 hours while we went out and the same thing was happening. The camera would never record me walking up to unplug it. Will continue in a sec
