I know this topic has been kicked around before. But it seems like there are more and more choices on the market all the time. I have had several that have worked, but none that have been special.

Anyone had one that they really like?

TIA

Browning strike force. Night pics aren't bad, but could be better. They have excellent trigger speed and great daytime pics. They also seem to pick up motion better than some other cameras, based on a couple multi camera set ups I've tried.They've come out with numerous models that I haven't tried. Saw they have an 18mp out the other day. I knew they were making a 12mp now(mine are 10mp) but I was shocked to see the 18mp.

The old Tasco design that Bushnell has now is the only one I use

I used to love the little M80 Moultries but their quality has gone to crap the last couple years. 50% failure rate on those we bought last year. My next ones will be Bushnell.

Just about anything but Wildgame Innovations seems to work pretty well. I'm currently using Browning Strike Force.


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

Like TxAg said i used to use nothing but moultrie (i have about 12 of them) but the past couple of years the quality has benn lacking. We bought 4 of the M-888 last year and returned 2 for a refund and had to do exchanges with the manufacturer on the other two. I also dont like that I can not view images on my ipad with the new moultries---you have to use a viewer which are slow and prone to have issues as well. I will never buy another moultrie again

That being said I read a lot of good reviews on Browning strike force so I tried one last year and I'm happy so far. I will get me a couple of the same this season.

Thanks, Gentlemen! this has been helpful and illuminating. Sounds like a pretty strong endorsement for the Browning Strike Force. In doing a little research, I see several different models of the Strike Force. I understand the difference in MP's. Other than that, any big differences? They all seem to be priced pretty close. thanks again.

I have the Command Opps and Range Opps, about 8 of them. I replaced my Primos cameras last year. Been satisfied so far. Day pics good, videos excellent, night pics not so good. battery life good too.

They may make great cameras, but the model number is how many dollars it cost.

Found mine pretty cheap online. Not near the hundreds many talk about. Google more than one page and you can find a deal.

For battery life, picture quality, and function the Brownings are hard to beat. I have a Bushnell (can't remember the model) that takes better pictures and has a better trigger speed. It took test pictures over 100 foot away

I still have an older WGI Blade 5 that works like a champ with better battery life than the previous cameras mentioned.

Anyone have any experience with the Cabelas brand cameras?

Which browning strike force model is everyone liking? I have had Primos for the last 3-4 years and they have been ok but going to retire them and by some new ones for this year.

For me browning all the way, Fantastic cameras. I also like Cuddeback but I have had some problems with them but their customer service is great and that it is why i continue to buy them.
