Default Heads Up On A Less Expensive Trail Camera

A Tasco 3.0 Trail Camera at Wally World, For $50.00
And 4 Gig SD Card $14.98
So for $50.00 + $14.98 + $14.98 + about $5.00 for 4 C cell batteries = $84.96 + Tax .
I get the multi packs with at least 12.
Eveready Energizer Max batteries seem to work the best in this camera.
For less than most trail cameras for the whole shooting match you can't beat it with a stick.

Now for picture quality, you be the judge.
Go to the next video, so on, and so on.

Great pics and video's!! Look's like a really good cam for the money.
Just a heads up about SD. cards. I get my SanDisk SD. cards on ebay, $6.20 with free shipping for 2 GB. and $7.89 with free shipping for 4GB. cards. Pike

jrbsr, thanks for posting these pics, i've been wondering about that camera for a little while now. Think I might pick up a couple of them. And Pike, thanks a bunch for the info on the cards!

They are solid cameras. I've got a few and have used them with good results the last year. For the price, they can't be beat.

I think you can get SD cards much cheaper than that.

I've always been an advocate for the tasco cameras...even the older model that was bigger and took D cell batteries.

How fast is the trigger speed, and the battery life?

Yes, how many pics will 1 set of batteries take?

On my Tasco (the older model) I can get about a month out of the D cell batteries and at best about a thousand pictures (with good weather) It will eat up the batteries in about ten days in the winter when temps never get above freezing. As for trigger speed, I've never tested it, but I usually put it out on a scrape. It's certainly better suited for a food source/scrape site where the deer will be moving through more slowly.
