The Best Trail Cam?
 
I am looking in to getting a trail camera and was wondering if any of you guys could recommend a good camera for the money.

Thanks.

They all have stong points and weaknesses. How much money you want to spend and what quality of photos you want make a huge difference. Me, I want the fastest trigger time for the least money. Others may want a high quality picture. Where you put the camera, a trail or a feeder/bait station makes a big difference as to which one will work well. You have to research them and make your own choices.:)

I 'm up to 6 cameras(all different)and have had atleast 9 different ones besides these.
My favorite so far is
Snapshot Sniper Digital Game Trail Deer Hunting Camera System .Costomer service is the best I'v delt with,fast shutter,couple hundred pics off the camera battery',and the unit battires last through the season

After testing 17 cams I would go with the Trail Watcher 4040. This cam uses the same electronics as the Snapshot Sniper and a Sony camera but is a little cheaper. www.trailwatcher.net

Cuddeback is the best no matter what any other people say.

cuddebacks are not the best no matter what honna says. after two weeks of usingmy no-flashi returned it for two cheaper cameras (and saved $200!). PLUS, I like EACH of the cheaper cameras better than I liked the no-flash.

Looks like a nice setup.

Really??? Why don't you call them and see if you can get anyone. You will get their machine that will just tell you to call back. It is a GOOD camera when it works but you better hope you never need customer service. I have not found a company that could care less about the customer then they do. Good luck in your picture taking.

I have heard this from several people. Customer support is pretty bad.

my problem isn't with the customer support i never even got that far with them. i don't think they could be worse then stealth customer support though. i send them a pic with a deer about 4 feet from a camera, barely visible because of the poor flash and their response (the entire response) was 'that looks fine to me'.

anyway, the cuddeback is a terrible design. the way they designed the battery case is laughable.you almost have to lay on your back andlook up at the camera to get that stupid plate in.what a joke.

I have a friend that has had good luck with his Cuddeback, but mine was CRAP! I have 2 Camtrakkers and have not had a minutes trouble. I have had a couple of questions and called their customer service, and they have been friendly and helpful. I would personally buy a Camtrakker over any other brand. Oh wait, I DID...TWICE!

I hear ya!!!!!
I second that on the Stealth customer service.After countless times trying to get a human on the line, they told me they would not take my old 35mm that would not rewind film, and picture taking was spotty at best.They only support digitals now.
I just wanted it fixed,I would gladly pay.
I promptly told them that they should support all their products, and I would no longer be a customer.

I own an 05 Cuddeback and love it. The one fault I do have with it is daytime pictures can be blurry if the animal is moving. Otherwise the battery life and trigger time is great. Also, being digital=no wasted picture developing. I did have to send it back once. They replaced the "board" and I had it back in about 4 days. That was in March, which was before they started selling the new models. I'm sure they are swamped with all the new problems.
