Anyone useing these? If so how are they? Is it true you get what you pay for? The 4.0 is available for under $100 or less.
I am wanting to get a cam or 2 and don't have alot to spend.

I just bought one last week and so far I have no problems. It takes very good pictures both day and night. I've had it out all week in cold weather and still have full battery life. The only thing I have a problem with is locking it to a tree. I saw an idea on chasingame.com where you use a 8x8x2 cake pan and a python lock but i still feel a little nervous leaving it out in the woods on public land. I guess if they want it bad enough they'll get it no matter what though...

I own two and have had no trouble with screens, moisture, etc etc
They have sat in all the rain the last 3 months, videos are good, pics are good color daytime great. The led that shows movement detected i covered with electrical tape, very bright!!
I did a bonehead and broke one but the customer service was outstanding.;) Not like the horror story you read about others. I might mention i tried the 8x8 pan thing and they don't fit! I expected them to sit back inside the pan or its possible i have a odd dimension pan...

IR4 is hard to beat.

I tried cuddyback with limited success. Great camera when it works. Tried wildview////// absolutely terrible camera.

Then tried a gameview 1.3 from walmart for $50. Wonderful so far. No complaints.

I have 2 of the larger IR/flash models and just recently bought the new IR4 and couldn't be more happy with them!

The only complaint I had is with the mounting bracking that comes with the larger cameras...not the best system. I would recommend just using bungie cords.
