Default best trail camera for the money?

i was looking into wildgame inovations cams because they offer 5 cameras under $100 but after reading the reviews i changed my mind. i'm on a serious hunting budget this year and i'm looking for the best quality camera with infrared that won't break the bank. any help would be appreciated

I have three wildgame cameras and they are awesome I havent had any problems out of mine.There is a tasco camera at wal mart for $50 that is pretty good.

same here. The ir4 worked really well for me and the batteries lasted all season, and I had a ton of pictures. Get yourself a memory card and set it up. Believe me, it's worth the money.

I just finished up some testing on cameras and the Wildgame X6C is a great buy for a $120.00 at you door.

Here is my test thread:

i agree the wildgame x6c is probably the best infrared camera for the money right now. i also have the wildgame ir4 and that is a good camera as well.

According to chasingame.com, WGI has really come a long way this year.

I like the X6C, also. It`s a very nice cam for the money. The picture quality is nice, trigger time is adequate and the IR array is plenty bright enough.

I don`t think it`s a great cam for trails. If it`s put on mineral licks, scrapes, rubs, and feeders, it`ll make most people happy.

I`ve, only, had mine for a week, but, I`m very happy with it.

This is the cheapest place I`ve found: http://www.eders.com/products/wildga...a-wir-apg.html
