I have a wildview .3 megapixel camera.

The initial trigger time seems to be acceptable during walk tests although I have not had it long enough to actually capture anything.

I've had it running now on cheapo C cells for a week and it's still functioning. (I just walked by it again.)

The minimum picture delay however is one minute... I didn't realize that when I bought them. I would have prefered a much lower setting.

I don't know what the minimum delay on the 2.0 megapixel units are, but I'd check before buying.

Buddy of mine has the .3 word.....JUNK!!!! Batteries last about 3 weeks, the trigger is slower than dirt, and just overall just isn't a nice camera. For the same money, you can do MUCH better.

I use the .3 megapixel version and for the money it has its value. The trigger is slow and the flash is weak, maybe 15ft. at the most, but if you have the unit positioned correctly (2- 4 ft. off the ground at an 80 degree angle) and at a place where the game will be for a while (i.e feeder, mineral lick, etc.) the camera functions admirably. 4C batteries usually last me 4 weeks. All in all, the camera is average and you get what you pay for.

Yeah I have .3 Wildview.

I use rechargable c batteries and get a solid week out of them.

The daytime pictures are good but the nite time pictures are another story. Usually you just see glowing eyes unless the deer are right next to the camera. It only has a 15ft flash range.

There is no date or time printed on the .3 version

Sometimes I have trouble with the camera putting the pictures on the SD card. I'll go to get the camera and it says it has 25 pictures but when I get home the card is blank. This has happened a couple of times and NO the card wasn't locked.

Here's a few pics from it
