Who makes the best 16mp camera for around $70? I've had good luck with wildgame innovations, will not buy a stealth camera ever again. Other than that, what do you recommend?

A little over $70, but i've had excellent luck with Brownings. The link below has one on sale for $84. I always wait until around this time of year to order because they put a bunch on sale when the new latest and greatest ones come out for the new season.

Hope you do too, but the two I have give me terrible pictures. It's weird, they're not necessarily grainy or pixelated, but distorted I guess. And they're not user friendly at all.

This is my biggest complaint about the Stealth cams that my dad has.

They were cheaper the other day, but this is what I added. The rival 20 lightsout and the mirage 18 lightsout.

They both take pretty good pics, especially for a camera under $100, and they're extremely user friendly.

I have always had good luck with Bushnell Trophy Cams. They have just about phased them out, so I ordered 4 of them from Walmart.com today. 20 MP. $74 each plus tax - free shipping so total was just under $300.

3 years from now I’ll wish I had ordered a dozen....

Cuddebak. Because they are easy to set and they work

+1 for Browning; we've had about half a dozen in our hunting group for awhile now and they were affordable, have good image quality, and have lasted multiple seasons (which is saying a lot for a game camera)

Hey guys, don't get too hung up on the MP count with the game cameras. Check the stats on the sensor for a true MP size count. Most trail cameras have a smaller sensor size and software that tells the camera to multiply each pixel. Also remember, the camera is using a plastic lens normally less than 1/2 inch in diameter. They are like the cellphone cameras, the image looks great on your computer or phone. But try to make a print of the image and they fall apart.

Just find one that gives you a halfway decent image on your computer, long battery life, and a decent lifespan.
