Well, the last of my game cameras crapped out at the end of last season, so I need to buy about 5 new cameras. I don't know what the latest technology is, or who is most reliable, or what the best deals are out there right now, so any advice on a good camera will be appreciated.

I don't need a cam with email capabilities. Wanting good day and night pics. And would like to stay under 130 or so a camera.

Thanks in advance

Browning Strike Force has worked well for me. I need to keep my Swiss knife in the truck and use the pliers to pull the card because it is a small camera. only downfall but I get around it. I also like it reformats SD cards and deletes all the pics. I have had some SD's get formatting issues with my older Spypoint cameras. Doesn't mean the newer ones aren't better now.

The Dark Ops works the same in the day but night pics are not as good. On the other hand they don't have visible flash all night either, so may not be as invasive as a visible flash. I'll never know for sure.

I purchased a half dozen Spypoint IR-5's about 4 years ago and they have been awesome. Great battery life and have held up to year round exposure pretty well. A few latches have broken but nothing major.

I'm about to be in the market for cameras again and would be looking at the Spypoint 10, 11, or 12. Have seen great reviews on the 10's, but nothing firsthand. Heck the 12 has a built-in solar panel on it. I just checked sportsmanguide and the 10's are 90 bucks.

I would go with Browning Strike Force or Bushnell Trophy agressor. I have been trying several brands of cameras the past couple of years. The only problem I had with a browning was one quit taking night pics and I had to send it back. It takes very nice pics and very few false triggers. Great battery life.

The bushnells take very good pics, very sensitive trigger, you'll have a lot of false triggers, but lots of pics of deer, too. Great battery life and reliable.

Moultrie, well we have a few that are at least 6yrs old, and take really nice pics. Based on that I got an m880i and an ac-8. Pics were blurry, out of focus, and pixelated. I would not get another moultrie.

I tried Primos Proof 03 this spring. It broke in 3 days of use.

Buyer beware. Buddy of mine recently bought 3 brownings with 2 of them failing to take night photos.

He said they were good cameras after he got replacements

Bushnell or stealthcam have worked well for us. Cuddebacks take great pictures but almost seem like they're programmed to crap out in the texas heat after about 2 years.

Wildgame has been good to me, but not to the other 99% of the hunting world

Another vote for the Browning strike force. I run a few year round and have yet to have a problem

My cuddeback blackout takes terrible night pics. Blurry on anything more than 10 feet away.

The wildgame camera I had would take a picture during the day anytime a blade of grass would move.
