Primos Truthcam 35 is hard to beat for the money. I have 4 of them. My only complaint about them would be that it would be nice if they had better resolution which one can get in the Trutcham 45. 35's are easy enough to find for $80 (Cabellas). 45's usually around $100-120.

I swear by the little cheap TASCO game cams from Wal-Mart. I bought mine for around 80.00 bucks, and Wal-Mart has a pretty good return policy as well.

Moultrie M80 is awesome for the price. Our lease now has 6 of them, great pictures and good battery life.

Stay away from Stealthcam, nothing but bad luck with them.

I have a few Bushnell's 5.0mp Trailsentry cams left at $50 that are pretty good and reliable...

x2 on this question. Ive been through 3 cams in the last 3 months. 2 of the wild game innovation 8.0 mp IR cams that just quit taking pictures unless the animal is within 10 feet, and one stealth cam rouge IR that took pictures for 10 days and now wont take one at all. Im fed up with the junk and considering buying a cuddeback

Good and cheap do not go together at all. I have switched from Cuddebacks to Spypoint and am liking the change so far. Spypoint is taking more pics by a 2 to 1 margin right now. Also trying out a PrimosTruth 35 cam right now. Cuddebacks service sucks and their new cameras are a joke.

I am running 3 truth cam 35's. Last week the date reset on one of them. That is the only trouble I have had. 4 months and I am still using the same set of batteries.

First off, there is no such thing as a "good, cheap game cam."

But IMO, the Moultire M80 is a great camera, and won't totally break-the-bank.

I'm a "small-time" hunter so the Primos 60 is my choice. I put some junk batteries in it and it's taken at least 2,000 pictures in a few weeks and still going. I don't need lightening trigger speed or even a video feed so it's my choice. I'd buy another one.
