Im pretty new to game cameras. Ive been using a pretty old one and its finicky. Im tired of fighting it. Does anybody have any recommendations?

What is the best Camera out there? Im looking for the following features:
-user friendly (read this as easy to operate)
-good quality pics
-Video option?
-under $200

is there a significant upgrade if i spend an additional $100 or $200? can i have pics sent to my email or phone? I assume that requires a data plan and cell coverage?

I bought two 2016 model Browning Strike Force Elites for about $220 for the pair off Amazon right before the season this year. I am very impressed with them, and up against my Reconyx which is only a year old, they give it a run for its money. The Brownings seemed to take at least as many pictures as the Reconyx, the night time flash was far superior, and I think the pic quality (especially night) was better as well.

YMMV, but hope this helps.

There are wireless game cameras available that require a data plan. Prices vary on cameras and plans.

I'll second the Browning's, but stay away from the black ops models imo, strike force are worth every penny though.

The Brownings are popular with the guys I hunt with. There are also a good many that use the 45 stealth cam. Stealth cam seems to take better daytime pics and the browning gets the edge at night.

I have three of the Browning Strike Forces, two 10MP and one 12MP. I've never had better cameras.

Here's a video from one of the 10MPs.

I've had good luck with the bushnell trophy cams. Good pics and long battery life. Bushnell recommends sandisc cards.

Browning going on sale Saturday morning at Cabelas. The sale is for 5 hours only, and in store only. This is the Strike Force 18mp for 89.99. I own one and it is a great camera.

The Browning seemed to have the best reviews on Amazon, compared to the other "real" cameras. The very best reviews seemed fake, and they where from brands that I never heard of, and the reviewers all sort of said the exact same thing. So I bought the Browning and it didn't take night pictures. Daytime pics where good, but nothing at night except a few black screens that you couldn't see anything. I probably had a dud and might have been OK getting another, but I just had Amazon refund my money and I bought the Stelthcam G42. It's about two months old and it's taking great day time pics, and fair night time pics. I think it's getting everything, I'm just not sold on how grainy it is past 30 feet. My feeder is at 30 feet and I can count points out that far, but beyond that, it's gets washed out.
