I would be curious to know too! The cheap cameras I have picked up at Walmart worked for about 3 days. Luckily Walmart took them back for a refund. Two cameras for sure, maybe 3. Glad I did not order online.

I would not say there the "best" camera for under $100 but we have had good luck with the small sized Wildgame cameras. As with a lot of the Chinese made cameras, they seem to be hit or miss. I know many people don't like them but we have been running six or seven with good results.

I've had many cameras in different price ranges. The Wildgame Innovations cameras that are under $100 have given me the best output. I've got multiple of the Wildgame cameras & have never had any problems with them!

I know you said around a 100 but I bought one of these last year and then another a few weeks later after trying it out. Stealth Cam STC-G42NG No Glo. I think I paid around 115. Gets the job done.

I just picked up a couple of Cuddeback Long Range C2 cams a few months ago for $149 a piece off of Amazon and they are doing great on batteries and the pictures look great.

I've had a Primos truth cam 35 for a couple years now (not the ultra). Just ordered 2 more this week, they are under a $100. Mine is good for the price, and they are user friendly.

I just put out a couple Moultrie A-5's. It may be a couple weeks, but I will post pics as soon as I check them. They get good reviews (along with the A-8 model). They don't have all the features of the more expensive models. Hopefully, they didn't sacrifice reliability.

Look at the Stealth G42NG for blackflash or G30 for IR. They are close to $100 and probably the best buy for that cost.
