    I was wondering if anybody on here has the G30 and what they think of it. From what i've read, it seems like a great camera and it doesn't take 1000's of blank pictures during the day like my coverts do. Feel free to post pictures and videos if you have any. Thanks

    Amazon has them for $91. I just ordered 4. Saved money by buying them individually rather than the 4 pack.

    I have a bunch and they're simply the best I've used
    I have had ever camera out there. Used to run a bunch of reconyx. And the g 30 keeps.up with them for a fraction of the cost. And the pic quality is way better

    Excellent. I know which to buy now to replace the camera the bear took out. I'm ordering it now.

    I have 9 of them I think now. They have been great cameras. Fantastic battery life, great trigger speed, there really isn't much to not like about them. I did have one warranty issue with one and it was replaced instantly for me. I know about 6 other guys that are running them for a total of probably 70 or so cameras and I'm the only one I know of that has had an issue with any of them.

    Their G42's are really nice as well. They are so bright at night that they can white out pics at night if the target is too close but other than that they are a great cam as well with slightly better pic quality.

    I have three G42's and I consider them the best cams that I own.

    I had an issue with a G42ng yesterday. I changed batteries in it after running video for a weak on already 50% batteries, well when I put the new batteries in and turned it on it was still dead. I fumbled and fidgeted with it then took it down and went on. The next camera was really low so I stuck the battery cartridge from the last one in it and it was also dead. I got to looking at the cartridge and I had one battery in backwards, lol. I had some awesome footage on the video mode cam too.

    Stop advertising for them :evilgrin:

    Bahaha....


    On a serious note everyone I know that runs them says decent to good things for them. Their price point and ability seem quite commendable, and if I came across the right deal wouldn't hesitate recommending them or even purchasing some.

    Is a alright camera in summer, but the G42 I have is useless in below freezing temp with alkaline batteries it lasts a week or a few days and batteries are toast. With that being said some guys say theirs work fine in winter so maybe it's just my cam. Noticed Fitz has winter pics wondering if he uses lithium or alkaline in his?
