If you are like me and hunt many different farms and require several cameras, this one is the way to go. It is very reliable, uses only 4 C batteries and takes excellent pictures day or night. For the money you can't beat it.
Cam works fine in the yard real test will be in the woods on a runway for trigger speed we shall see!
THIS THING WORKS VERY WELL. THINKING ABOUT GETTING ANOTHER ONE. TAKES PERFECT PICTURES OF ANIMALS IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT. THE ONLY THING IS I THINK THE FLASH AT NIGHT SPOOKS THE DEER. ALL IN ALL, A GREAT PRODUCT.
With this camera I can sleep at nite or when I leave home for the day or night. Or when I go out of town I will know if any body comes in my yard. To take something of mine, I can take care of it or call what law we have in area Cana,VA. I will buying at less 2 or 3 more.
Bought this camera last year and love it right away. I had a more expenise camera and every time the camera took a picture, the deer would hear it and look right into the camera. Never got the same Buck twice with that camera, No noise from this camera. I sold the more expenise camera and bought 2 more of these. Batteries last a long time if you only take pictures in the day time. Save your money and buy this camera. You will love it
Good for the money
I was excited to buy a trail camera that didn't break the bank. I'm glad I tried out the s1.3x model before buying several to scout out my hunting land. After having the camera out for 2 weeks I found only 8 pictures on it. 4 of me setting camera up and messing around with it to make sure it went off, 3 black pictures because flash didn't go off and 1 of a small buck. I had it over a very active scrape and camera didn't perform at all. Also the batteries were dead after taking these 8 pictures. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY LIKE I DID!!!!
my wife bought me this camera last year and i used it the day i got it and took awesome pics with it. im using it again this year and its made it threw acouple of storms and still works great. if you dont want to spend alot of money and want a good trail camera i would prefer this one to everyone. cant beat the price!!!
Well built - great price!! just what my grandson needed and wanted. He is delighted that he will be able to see if he's set up in a good spot by the pictures this camera takes. If we had it to do all over again would not change a thing! Just love it and am sure my grandson will have a great time with it - would recommend this camera to all hunters.
This is my first game camera and for a cheap price it is as advertised and takes clear photos. I would recommend someone to buy this camera if you want to go cheap and I would say it would probably do as good as a camera that would cost a fortune. Can't wait to catch that big buck on my new camera!!!
This camera is great for daytime pictures, good for night pictures. For the price you can't get a better camera.
For 50.00 it is well worth the price,simple set up and takes great pictures.I suggest setting it a 3 minute intervals.I had it at 30 seconds and it took 194 pictures in 6 days and killed the batteries.
Or get a C battery charger and chargeable batteries.
2-duracells cost 3.99 so save where you can
I got one of these cameras this year and it took alot of good pictures so far. I had it on 30 seconds day and night and it would burn the batteries up in about a week or so. I believe that was due to the flash usage because I had alot of night pics. Next year I am going to keep it set at 1 minute. I also noticed that the camera doesn't take good pictures at night once the temps start getting down in the 40's. Some of the pics come out black I think because the flash timing gets to slow in the cold. That was fine with me because in SC that is usually in November and you should have already done your scouting by then. The pic quality was fine for what I was looking for especially for the price. I am buying another one of these to use for next year.
My dad and I both bought one. We were skeptical for only $50. Set them up right away and it takes good, clear pictures during the day. However, at night, it is hit or miss as far as getting a picture. Out of 110 pictures, 90 of them were at night with only 10 of that 90 were actually pictures. 80 were dark and blank. This happened on both cameras. Also, when installing batteries for the second time, the plastic pieces that holds the batteries in place broke on both ends on both sides and on both cameras. Get what you pay for!
test pictures were good, will use again soon;
If you don't have anyone tampering this camera, it would've been a great device.
My problem was, it had work before, however, someone messed with this camera and caused it to run weird. Otherwise, some pictures were able to come out, the others were tamper by someone's hand. That's the problem.
While the features and the price of the S1.3x are very attractive, the products performance and failure rate are not. The S1 seems to be teaming with bugs and quirks that make this camera unusable for anyone that actually require it to take game (or any other type of) pictures. Common failures include; intermittently working flash, inability to write to SD cards, and unexplained 'power-offs'. The company (Wildgame Innovations) offers a 1 year warranty but only if you register the product within 14 days of purchase. In addition, if you register online, you must also send in a copy of the purchase receipt. Anyone receiving one of these as a gift (like myself) will basically find themselves out of luck (but I understand Walmart will accept returns if you including everything with the original packaging). This would be a great hobbyest/entry level game camera 'IF' the issues with it's operation could be worked out. Until then I would suggest looking elsewhere for a game camera, even if you have to pay a little more. While some reviews here suggest that the camera does work as intended for them, a quick search on the web will tell you that a great many of these cameras fail, and paying a little more will save you a great deal of frustration.
While the price is good, I found that in the woods the triger speed on this camera is extremly slow (3 seconds or more) therefore I got many more empty pictures than I did of wildlife. I know what you are thinking...wind blowing leaves but I tested the triger speed myself by walking in front of the camera and placed far enough away from things this that could set it off. Did get a handfull of nice pics. Would be a good product for someone on a very tight budget, but otherwise would not recomend it.
figured would try this for the price of it. It takes 30 seconds to snap a picture. We all know that what ever is going to run by or walk by will be gone by the time it takes the picture. If it had a quicker time like 5 seconds it would be great but worthless for what I need it for. Returning it for something better.
the pictures i downloaded were dark. after the 1st download, nothing would show up
