sorry wildgame guy none of what i am about to say is directed at you but you did ask for the good the bad and the ugly.
Yes I did and thanks for explaining your situation.
lets start with wi/fi it apparent does not work as advertised and should be recalled money back. the next great selling factor quickdraw sensor see chasingames review. i would like to note that this system is supposed to conseve battery life and seems to fail there to. next is 15 sec delay you don,t have burst mode and cams are taking up to 50 sec. to take another picture. motion blur i find that your cam is acceptable here but can still use improvement. picture quality is good but nowhere as good as the ir8 when it would take a picture. i was excited to find that this cam had a tripod sockett but was quickly put back to wresling with the cam to get it in position.you need to attach your tripod sockett so it doesn,t come out when you tighen the cam. i have for sometime wondered about the batterys on this cam,anthony just reported a finding that is similar. all this leads to my latest card pull.cam 1 was put out on a scrape foodplot proven great spot with battery charged over6.5 volts on oct 11. it took 36 pictures and quit on the 15 th battery reading 4.3. cam two had a card pull and new battery charged over 6.5 put in it on oct 18 it took 4 pictures and turned itself off. i did not revisit these cams untill the 23 rd and 24 th. i truly believe that you should start from scratch, your company,s good name may sell cams for a while,but the consumer will catch on.
Everything you have described here is a software/firmware issues (except the tripod mount). WGI is tweaking the setting and producing a fix for the issues. I wasn't giving a date on when it would be released.
last quetion ,these cams have a internall battery for keeping the settings when you take the batterys out but no instructios on how to replace it. is this because the cams won,t last that long. truly hazelvillebucks
It is because we would rather replace the camera. It lowers the risk of error if someone else tries to replace it. The settings are stored on the small drive inside of the camera. The same drive if you didn't have a memory card.
