I have a bushnell and its a good cam. its 3 or 4yrs old now..still going strong.

Primos isn't that great...drains batteries quick, mediocre night pics, and it makes a noise when first tripped.

Moultrie is a good one...

As it is right now with the industry i cant justify spending over $100 on a camera when there is no market out there for repairs and most companies no longer touch the older models within a year after they come out. If any of you can vouch for a company that has repaired there cameras after the model has been updated id be willing to consider it.

Checked my stealth cam yesterday and found the batteries exploded on the inside of the unit so all the contacts are rusted to crap. Unit was only in the woods for 2 weeks with brand new batteries. Company just offer a discount on getting another.

Wildgame need to get off their butts and improve their support relations! These posts will eventually hurt their sales. No problem that the camera died in 1 year, but either fix it, credit the buyer, discount coupon, something...basically she told me to go pound salt! Read and learn..Never buy any Wildgame innovations products!

I've said it a hundred times in here, "You get what you pay for".
If you want to decent camera that's also not going to eat up batteries then you're going to have to spend a little money.
At least start in the $200 range.
I personally prefer Reconyx.
