I sell Stealth cams, Wildview and Wildgame innovations cameras.
They all come from China, probably all made under the same roof.
I dont care which brand you buy they ether work good or they dont from what I've seen and read about them. If you buy one from me and have a problem you can bring it to me and I'll take it back to them and get it replaced (they are 6 miles from here) That is a lot simpler than trying to deal with customer service.

Most of the cameras today are built to be last a season or two at most. The expensive ones will last much longer and get you better quality of pics. Like posted they all have issues in themselves. I use Cuddys and never have had to many issues with them and the pic quality on the non-infared models I have are excellent for the detail that I want. Others have had issues with them.

I use wildgame cameras. I've had one in the field for 3 years now and the other for 2 years. They stay in the field all year and I've never had a problem other than them eatting batteries which I took care of with external batteries and solar panels.

We decided on a cuddyback with IR as well. Have been quite happy with it as it takes very good pics and is extremely easy to set. Don't know how long they will last. Have them now for two years and so far they both work just fine.

I use 2 wildviews and 1 stealth cam. all are IR and video capable for about $100 each. very cost effective. I like the wildview for the IR side as it has a 15 foot better effective distance. As mentioned above, most cameras only last for 2- 3 years so expect to have to replace them periodically. Depends on your budget. If budget is not issue, get the reconix. Every review that I have seen on them is really good . especially the trigger speed and quality.

The wildview are easy and work pretty good.

Stealth cam works good also.

I like the fact I can have an external battery and it doesn't eat up my C cell batteries!! smile

I strongly recomend a cam that allows you to make it a 12v solar powered unit. Battery life on the cams I have experience with have all been extremely poor but luckily I was able to set up solar power systems for the cameras. Just my 2 cents
