    Which model camera (GC-what)? What’s the firmware date?

    You should get pictures within a couple or three minutes, usually less. 

    I’m not sure what you mean by your “regular SD card”? Regular trail camera? Keep in mind that cell cams don’t take pics while they are sending, your other camera will just continue taking pics.

    You mention a status report. You won’t get status reports or HD photo or requested videos until the NEXT time the camera contacts the server, which can be for a scheduled event or motion-triggered photo. It’s not instant.

    Make sure on the app that download when on wifi only is turned off and that auto download is turned on.

    The model is GC-V4Gb. It seems to be working a lot better during the day?!. I just watched some turkeys walk infor of it and I received the picture within 1 or 2 minutes.
    I didn’t know, that while it’s sending the picture it won’t take another, but if it’s on 5s delay you would think it would take a picture every 5 seconds right?
    I have it on pictures only? Would that matter on the sending side as far as speed?
    I don’t know where to see what firmware I have?

    Jonny deer hunter I do have the WiFi off and auto download on.

    Thank you guys for the continuing support, as of right now, I think it’s working right. I will update you after tonight. It just didn’t seem to take the pictures I thought it would have last night.

    Thanks again.

    If you have it set to take a picture every five seconds and it takes 45 seconds to send the picture then the fastest you will get a picture is every 50 seconds. I just made up the 45 seconds, you'll have to see how long it takes your particular camera to send. Signal strength and battery power have a lot to do with it. Also make sure power save is turned on in the camera settings.

    Ok, I didn’t know that about cellular cameras. That you for the info. Do more people use it in video mode? I mean 50sec in deer time, is one picture walking by, and if it’s not a good first picture then you don’t get a chance for a second.

    Pic + video is the best in my opinion. The camera will send you the picture and record the video, then if you want to see the video you can request it. That way you're not wasting data and battery power sending videos of squirrels and Tweety birds

    Pic + video, as Johnny says, and you can use 0 for the trigger interval. That will get you pictures just about as fast as the camera can take/send them. Pic c video does take an extra 3 to 5 seconds longer between pics.
