Need to buy two or three new trail cams. Would prefer not to spend $500 on Reconyx...
Just need something to take good stills day and night. Would probably prefer something other than incandescent flash to minimize spooking game.
What are you using that you are happy with for less than $200. Thanks.

Primos ultra blackouts have worked well for us and simple to use. Also the Moultries overall are good - we run around 20 cameras so we have experimented with a lot of them

I have used the Bushnell cameras for a few years now with good success

I have had good luck in the past with Primos Truth, SpyPoint and Bushnell cams. All were IR cams.

Browning Strike Force, for the $ no question IMO. Mine beat any I have had, but avoid the Black OPs model, it would work best for guarding an entrance door or similar.

This one , then look around the site, great write ups on most main models. I see they took down the 2014 reviews as they are reviewing the 2015 models, last year rated as best buy.

I've had good results with the Moultrie brand.

Primos has refurbished equipment of all kinds on their website, to include cameras but it can be it and miss.You just have to check back from time to time.

Bushnell Trophy cam has been by far my best camera. It finally crapped out this past season. Got about 8 or so years out of it. Just bought 2 called Bresser. Looks just like the Bushnell and has the same guts for half the price. Got them for $71 thru Sportsmanguide. So far, they have been taking great pics.

bushnell trophy and browning cameras are pretty good for what's available these days... lots of other good cameras have come and gone...

I've found the best thing to do for battery cost is buying the expensive lithium. they're about twice as expensive, but will last around 4 time longer (counting photos until batteries are dead). I have ran anywhere from 10-20 cameras a year for the last 10 years.
