    I have been having some issues with my Wildview Extreme 4.0 Camera. I have tested all of the settings, etc. and it doesn't seem to take pictures immediately upon movement. I have the setting at 1 minute between shots and the burst is set at 2. Theoretically this menas that it should take 1 shot and then 3 seconds later a second shot. Then it should wait another minute and go off again on movement. However, even when I test it it seems to take a lot of movement to trigger the photo. I had one camera, and thought this was a defect so I took it back and got another one ( same model ) and it does the same thing. Anyone have any experience with these? Maybe I am doing something wrong?? Thanks.

    Thanks guys. I guess the thing is just a piece of crap. I got it on a clearance sale at Dick's Should have known better.

    Same problems here...I also get overexposed (white out) pictures during the day. This happens no matter what direction I put the camera in. I can't stand putting in time to set up a good camera spot and returning to screwed up pics or no pics at all.

    they are not the best out there for sure but if try to set off the camera by moving your hand over the sensor most time s it wont go off but leave it on the tree and u will get deer pics. i never go by test mode on any camera they all r designed to b wide angle at close range. and if simeone steals it witch sooner or later will happen your out a feww dollars rather than a few hundred

    The wildview are cheap cameras, and usually only work well over a bait pile. The more expensive cameras have higher quality triggers, which work better on trails and field edges. For a bait pile, you can not beat the wildview for the price.

    You get what you pay for. They are cheap cameras and have a very slow trigger speed. Up to 4 - 5 seconds on some models.
    I have both Cuddeback and a few wildlife extreme. I only use Wildlife extreme over bait or I get pix of nothing or maybe the deers tail and he is walking away.
    Cuddeback is by far the best ive used but expensive.

    I have the wildview and it is slow to trigger. As others have stated it is fine for bait pile photos. I do get occasional white outs during the day. I also found out that most of the problems are more apparent when the batteries start to fade. The pics come out good though in B/W. I wish this site would upgrade so I could upload pics instead of the web based photo crap.
