I'm gonna say no to any IR cameras, blurry nighttime shots seem to be the norm.
Comparing flash to IR it seems the flash cameras do not blur on moving animals.

I like my trophy cam, very fast trigger time, just the darn blurry night shots irritate me.

Looks like the Primos lineup has some good sub $200 cams

WGI x6c - The best $100 cam out here right now. Great battery life, the best videos I have ever seen, and a fairly quick trigger speed.

When the PIR is set to high I can pick up moving objects over 50 yards away and have the pictures to prove it.

I have a Tasco 3 Megapixal Trail Cam.
You can get it at Wal-Mart for $50.00
This is what the pictures, and videos look like.

Evan, i agree with JMAN that the wildgame x6c is a great buy for the price and would suggest it to anyone who wants a cheaper prices IR cam. pictures are great both day and night and videos are awesome. also very compact cam just like the bushnell. only negatives are no burst mode-only 30 second delay- and trigger speed isnt the quickest- around 2 seconds. great cam overall

X2 but just for quick reference, I would say some of the WGI or Primos cams are a good buy in that price-range.
