Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 8/20

The detection range is minimal and just about 40 feet.

Speed: 3/10

The photo trigger is satisfactory for a camera at this price range, but the recovery rate between triggers is super slow. 


Accuracy: 7/10

As with most inexpensive cameras, we recommend using the low-sensitivity setting option, as the G100 camera is inclined to false triggers.


Battery Life: 7/10

A black bear messed with one of our cameras and tilted the camera to the side, where a branch was directly in front of the camera. That resulted in non-stop false triggers. But, lo and behold, the camera snapped a whopping 27,434 photos before the batteries died! Very impressive considering the camera only uses four AA batteries. However, in video mode, the battery life is just considerably weaker. 


Daylight Images: 2/10

The daytime images from the G100 are subpar. When set to three pictures per trigger, one first picture is always overexposed, the second is okay, and the third is consistently underexposed and very dark. This has been the case with all images.

Lowlight Images: 3/10

The lowlight pictures suffer from high-ISO grain, and most images are slightly out of focus due to the slow shutter.

Night Images: 3/10

The nighttime illumination from the G100 game camera is insufficient, and the night images are lacking.

Design: 5/20

The overall build of the G100 cam is dissatisfactory. The plastic latches have a flimsy feel, and you can quickly tell this is a cheaply made product. The black paint with white LEDs combo makes the camera hard to conceal. The camera setup is somewhat confusing as the screen is tiny due to its compact design. The settings are also limited, and the G100 does not provide many options. 


Verdict: 38/100

The Wosports G100 is one of the least expensive game cameras on the market. The battery life is decent, but unfortunately, that is probably the only positive of this game cam. The image quality is lacking in all aspects, the trigger and the detection range are poor, and proper nighttime illumination is missing too. Unfortunately, the G100 camera from Wosports it's just not worth even the super low price. 


Alternatives:

If you are looking at budget cameras, the Wosports G500 is a considerably better camera, costing only a few bucks more. The Meidase P60 is also a good alternative if your budget is limited.
