I'm looking at buying new trail cameras this year. I've been using Wildgame Innovation cameras and I'm starting to have problems with them and they are just over 1y/o. I'm looking at switching to Covert, Cuddeback long range flash, or Bushnell. I've read the trail cam reviews on Covert & Bushnell but can't find any on the cuddeback cams. What do you guys think of these cameras? Have you had any problems with them and if so what were the problems?

I have one, lower end model. Nothing fancy, but takes good pictures, is reliable and doesn't munch batteries.

We have tried several different cameras (Bushnell, Stealthcam, Moultrie, etc) and have settled on the Browning Recons. All of these cameras take good daytime and decent nightime pics, but the Brownings have by far the best dusk/dawn pics of all we have tried. The quality of the pics during these times during the day are important to us, but may not be to you. We are getting approximately 15,000 pics per set of lithium AA batteries. Periodically Natchez puts these on sale for $89 if you buy 2 or more. These cameras have lots of features for the $ without being ridiculously priced.

Based on the research I have done and polling folks on a couple of forums, the next one I buy will be a Browning Strike Force.

I've got WGI, Bushnell, Cuddeback Capture, Cuddeback Long range IR and Primos. All have served very well for me.

I got the Cuddeback Long Range IR as a gift and it takes great pictures with great trigger speed. My favorite is the Capture just because of the color night photos.

I have 2 WGI micro 6's that have been very good with 2 full seasons on them and were never taken down. Only have one out right now as the sensor lens broke on one. Not bad for $80 cameras.

I have recently bought 2 WGI bladeX 6's from Academy on sale for $50 and they take really good pics.

I will tell you Cuddeback has the best trigger speed of the mid priced cameras that I have used.
