So the second of three Wild Game Innovations cameras I got crapped out, then the two new ones I got proceeded to print what was like Japanese on my SD cards with no readable pics, I made sure I had SD Cards that were formatted, put new ones in, left the cameras out for two weeks and NADA! I am fed up with WGI's JUNK, Everything I have ever bought from them, breaks in the first 30 days, or lasts less than a year. Is it just me?! realmad popcorn

Had that happen on some Primos I had. Did it once and then went away though. Bad timing for sure

I quit buying them after I had 2 go out in less than a year and called customer service after reading great reviews of the customer service dept. on here. They told me that there was nothing they could do for me without the original receipts.

I'm trying Browning this time, none of the other brands I've tried have lasted much more than a year. Primos was decent for the cost. Weirdest thing is that they all break while they aren't being used and there's no batteries in them... There must be a logical explanation as to why they break while resting.

Going on over a year with 2 of the $99 Browning 8mp cams. They are regular $119 but I got them on sale. They are top notch perfect pics and no problems whatsoever. Easy to program as well.

The problem with this is that those 5 year old models are not made anymore. I have seen problems with every brand I have owned from $50 cameras to $350 cameras. For some brands, it seems that a line of models will be good, but not necessarily any other line. With others, it may be camera by camera that is good or bad.
