Moultrie M-80's are $140 and work PERFECTLY. I also like the Bushnell Trophy Cam, but highly suggest the Moultrie.. I've bought 6 this year and not had a problem or complaint yet!

Reconyx is the best camera I have owned. The batteries last FOREVER. I've taken approximately 20,000 pictures, and still have 99% battery life left!

I am a Bushnell Trophy guy all the way. Regardless of the cost range a guy looks at, dollar for dollar the Bushnells are always remarkable.

I have never seen cams that use such little battery power! When you add the extremely long battery service you just can't look at the Bushnell cams as winners.

Pick up a couple stealth cams the other week. So far so good. Good pics at night and very simple to set what you want it to do: 1 shot 3 shot burst. Or if u want it to take video for 15 or 30 sec. Great night shoots as well!

I started using DLC Covert white flash cameras last year and they have worked great. If you want quality night pictures you can't get better than a white flash camera color night-time photos, instead of IR, and I've been using white flash since 2003 and haven't had any deer spook either. DLC Covert makes the Covert Reveal 8.0 MP, I bought mine online for $110 plus shipping cost (about $120-130). It uses 8 AA batteries. It's been out since August 1st (set to take a picture every 3 minutes) and still has 2/3 bars on the battery meter, and has taken about 900 pictures.
