You will get a ton of opinions. I have tried most every brand under $200 and the results don't vary much (not as good as I think they should be for the price). I feel the best value is a Moultrie with the solar panel. I have had great luck with the solar panel's for example I am over 5 years with the same 3 solar panels from Moultrie. The real money saver is getting through a whole season without putting in new batteries - I also believe for whatever reason having them run out of batteries kills the camera quicker. I also make sure to take my cameras down right after season, clean them, remove the batteries, and store in my basement. These little steps have helped increase the life by a couple years. For comparison - I run around 10 cameras a year. Good luck.

I've had a couple spypoints that were supposed to sen all the images to a "blackbox." Never really worked that well but the pictures were good and I've had them about 4 years now and still going strong. I also have 2 Moultries i got on sale and they take even better pictures than my spypoints. One is on it's second year the other is on it's 6th year, which is why I bought the second one. I'll never buy wildgame again after dealing with their customer service on a camera that was 2months.

I have Wildgame, Spypoints and Browning cameras. I really like my Brownings the best. Take good videos and pics. Ken

I would suggest getting in touch with Co_Bowhunter here on Bowsite... some of his trail cam video is remarkable.

Alot has to do with what you want from your cam. I am a vid guy so video quality is important to me. I am running 3 Moultrie S50-i's with the solar panels. IMO they have the best video quality out there! My older M990i's are still chugging after 4-5 years. Just got a used M999i from a neighbor. Had a couple of those before and had to return them to Moultrie. Will see how this one goes. They did provide great vids though.

I've tried a few brands. Stealth Cam were ok. Browning have been the best for me.

Go to trailcampro.com They are in the business of testing and rating dozens of cameras. They rate each camera broken down into several categories. They do sell cams, too and they give a 2 year warranty as opposed to the usual 1 year if you buy elsewhere. I bought 4 Browning Strike Force HD PRO. from them last year and I really like them. They are tiny, they take nice pics, batteries last a long time and trailcampro rated them the 2nd best(at the time). The only better cam was a very expensive Reconex.

Browning and Moultrie have 2 yr factory warranties. Exodus has a 5 yr warranty plus a great deal on lost or stolen cams.
