    I have to disagree, I bought a cheap no name on amazon for 69.99 including 32 gig card, it has a large LCD viewer to check your pictures. A buddy of mine bought one with the name Browning on sale for 100 bucks no viewing screen and no memory card. I also bought another tasco with Canadian tire money at Canadian tire for 50 regularly 100 no memory card (luckily I had one), no viewing screen and the pictures are not as good as the Chinese junk one I bought.

    GW I know the market has been flooded with cheap china cams the last few years, and if they last a couple of years it's still cheap. I apply that comment to about everything I buy. In particular when it comes to electronics and digital devices the reason they can make and sell them so cheap is because they use the lowest priced poorest quality components on their circuit boards. Chances are they will fail prematurely, in fact I have no doubt they are built to fail. Even the good ones finally pack it in.

    There is a positive sign lately though. I switched to black leds for my bear baits years back and still use them but as good as daytime video and audio is, night time videos are poor quality compared to the old red leds. Now technology is really improving on that. Justin Hoffman is testing a new unit out that initially looks promising for night time video quality at a good price.

    After losing a camera I refuse to buy any camera that doesn't have a PIN code to lock the camera. I'm sure the thief doesn't even realize the camera isn't any good to hiim/her but I like the fact that it's useless to them. I found the higher priced rechargeable Li batteries really good even in cold weather.

    I use the cameras in the off season but I pull them as soon as the hunting season approaches. Theft and educated deer become a problem. I just can't resist checking the damn things and that lowered my success.

    Use a cellular with a solar charger - if you have cell coverage. No need to visit the camera to check it.
    Cellular also allows you to disable the camera remotely or track it's location if it is stolen.

    Best camera I ever had was a homemade one with a bigfoot circuit board and 12mp camera. Sadly it was stolen, had a cable lok on it and the just took a saw to the tree.

    Look at how clear these photos are!

    Thanks Werner. Guess that kind of solves several problems. How costly would that setup be?

    Werner is correct. Solar/ Cellular is the way to go and SPYPOINT is the only one that has it.
    My cam has worked flawlessly all year long.

    Not cheap. $550 after the mail-in rebate.
    I did run into problems with it this fall. It quit transmitting and needed a firmware upgrade.
    Documentation for the cameras is very poor - the process for upgrading the firmware is not in the documentation.
    Phone/email for spypoint is pretty poor too.

    Myself... I would AVOID Moultrie and Wildgame Innovations cameras. I have had success with Primos ( Canadian Tire ) and Browning ( Cabela's ). The Brownings I use retail for well over $ 200 but Cabela's puts them on sale for around $129.
    As for batteries I use Energizer Lithium Ultimate ( they have a - 40 to + 60 degrees Celsius rating ) and seem to last quite a while ( depending on wildlife activity and blowing vegetation pics ).
