Re: Wildview or Stealth Cam recommendation
huntsolo: I have had access to 14 of the WildView Ez cam which was the early version. These took pictures and were out before video. Four of these were returned to the dealer for replacements. When these cameras worked they took excellent day time pictures. These cameras are large, using 6 "C" batteries. The cameras were very hard on batteries. I switched to the 12 volt external port, using 300 series Energizer batteries similiar to ones used in a ride on lawn tractor. I admit this is an expensive, cumbersome setup. When the cameras came out with the video function, I sold these, going to 2009 Bushnell Trophy Trail Camera, Moultrie D55-IR, Moultrie GameSpy M100 (a higher version than the M80) and SpyPoint IRB. Of these my first choice is the 2009 Bushnell, followed by either Moultrie M80 or M100 as a close second. The Moultrie cameras, when set for video, take a picture first, then the video. Field of view is narrower in the video than in the picture. Moultrie said this is how it down loads. Moultrie is limited to a 10 second night video. When I purchased my D55-IR, they said they had no intention to extend night video because it was harder on batteries. Moultrie offers a one year warranty, whereas Bushnell offers two years. The warranty is from the manufacture, not the dealer. Both companies have given excellent customer services with any emails I have sent. You may find buys on EBay, but unless they are authorized dealers, there is no warranty.
