thank you very much for the information! is it complicated to figure out? because there where several things that were listed their that i have no idea what they mean. and there as far as the numbers go, how good is that? like the 6.0 mega pixels, what does that mean, and is that a good number or is it lower than average?

the more mega pixels the better the pic, so when you get that perfect pic you can frame it. The Infrared camera with no visible white flash
wont spook the deer. but the most importan thing to me was the 1.5” built-in picture and video viewer so when you get the camera you can see what was walking by

If price is a big consideration, I bought one of the Moultrie 4.0 megapixel Game Watcher cameras a few weeks ago. In 2 1/2 weeks I had about 470 pictures of about everything you will find in the woods that will eat corn. I was surprised at the quality of the pictures, and it is as easy as any I have ever seen to set up. About $98.

cheap is always easy on my budget (hard to have budget when you have no money to your name) but i dont want to get something that i will regret buying because it didnt meet my expectations. i know what you pay for is what you get, plus im not the best with technology so the easier it is to work is a big plus as well!!!! thanks for all the help, i really appreciate it!!!!

I've got 2 of the Moultrie 4.0 megapixel game watchers. They're extremely easy to use, take great pictures, and are a lot nicer to the pocket book than a lot of other cameras. Even has a vieo setting for taking video during the day if you'd like. I would definately reccomend this camera though. Good luck with your decision!

I second that !I own 2 of the Moultrie D40's and am very happy with them. Best $95 per cam I've ever spent.

Everyone wants the "best" game camera, but very few are willing to pay for "THE BEST". It seems that most people are willing to settle the "the best" in a certain price range.
