Just back from Cabela's and grabbed a couple new game cameras they had on sale:

Wildgame Innovations Vision 12, original price $84.88 for $69.99.

Stealth Cam PX28, original price $99.99 for $84.99.


Anybody have real world experience with either camera and willing to share the good or the bad?

Didn't do a real indepth web search, but these specific models do not seem to come up, and nothing on Cabela's site either.

Thanks!   :tup:

Not sure about the 12 but I believe the previous version (Wildgame 10) didnít allow you to setup timing intervals (I.e. pic every minute not consecutive) which was a major bummer; I didnít want 100 pics of the same deer.  They may have changed that though?

Have been busy since getting home, so haven't even opened the boxes yet.

Some shots of the manufacturer's propaganda on the outside of the boxes though...

I have older wild game innovations and love it.  I can set the time between pics from 30 second to 1 min

But the stealth cam in my experience sucks  :bash: I have 2 and they're only good if it's dry out

I would have to agree based on the one I had.  I tested it out, inside the house and the results were just not anything close to acceptible. 

Just a small area of light in a mostly black picture. If I hadn't known it was a picture of me, I doubt I could have figured out what it was.

It went back to Cabela's...

The Wildgame Innovations fared better, so put out on the apple tree for a few days.  It will do, not the best trigger speed it seems, but for the most part can count points in most of the shots.

Think my next investment will be a Bushnell and see how it works...

I have used 2 bushnell cams, not sure the models. I got them on amazon. Not worth a crap for western WA, both got wet inside and died in about 4 months. I like my Moultrie cams, but I had one stolen this year. They have been very good never get wet inside but the trigger speed is a little slow so always point with the trail not across it and they are a little heavy if you have to pack them very far. I really like the battery length also only change they about every 3-4 months.  :twocents:

I have read mixed reviews about the wet environment and Bushnell, thanks for the insight!

Will give the Moultrie line a closer look as well!
