Not really sure what brand. But I would spend the extra money and get a nice digital camera, it will save you money in the long run. Because of the price to get the film developed. I am getting ready to buy me a new digital one to replace my 35mm camera.

I have a cuddeback and I really like it. They are a little more expensive than some of the other ones out there but, I think it's worth the extra money.

I also agree if you have the money, get digital. I have the cheap Stealth Cam (35mm) and I really don't have any complaints about it. I've had it for three years and for the money its been a good camera.

When I get the extra money, I will either get the Cudde Back or Leaf River.

I have a "homemade" digital that my brother built a few years back and a Camtrakker digital. The Camtrakker brand digital is pricey but in my opinion is the best on the market. I have had a Cuddeback and would not give 2 cents for another. Mine never did work, and their customer service sucks. My friend has one that works fine, but like I said, their customer service sucked for me. Digital is the only way to go no matter what brand you choose.

The old cuddlebacks were bad but the new 3.0 is a good set-up.
Pennwoods (4.0 sony)is a good setup but cost to much(If you can get one on E-Bay for under $450 thats a good deal)
Stay away from eagleeye(Now called NatureQuest)Bad bussiness
Snapshot Sniper(4.0 sony)is a user friendly great set-up with TopNotch customer service
highlander is a PITA
LeafRiver is supposed to be a great camera,(but I never had one)
BuckEye sends the pic's to your computer within a minute of being taken,supposed to be good for 2 miles from homebase BLAH bla bla...DOSENT WORK
Pennwoods has a cell phone camera that sends it to any e-mail addy.You need a provider and get the unlimited picture thing .I havent tried that but Pennwood is on top of the game so I doupt there wood be a problem

If I was looking for another camera it would probably be the New Cuddleback or another Snapshot
Most of the setups with the sony P-41(snapshot,pennwoods)you get @ 200 pics befor changing batteries in camera

I've used seven digital scouting cameras so far. From what I have seen so far, if I were only going to buy one camera right now I would get the SpyCam from Woodland Outdoor Sports. Try woodlandspycam.com.
