No doubt Rx is one of the best out there, but a price tag comes with that too.

I'd look at the mini Bushnells if I were you. I'd be telling you to get a Scout Guard if they were available! :stickfight: The battery life on these cameras is unmatched. (Bushnell and SG.....they've got VERY similar guts).

There's a bunch of guys here that like their Moultrie IR's too.

I vote for the Moultrie I-40. We have cuddebacks, older Moultries and a few I40s. I40s battery life is incredible and trigger spped is that of the cuddeback,plus it has a lot more set up options over the cuddeback. Just wish the I40s were in a smaller set up.

You have to include SCOUTGUARD on that list for the money you can't beat them. If money isn't an option I would say that reconyx are pretty good:cheers:

10-4 ON THE I-40'S. THEY'RE THE BEST OVERALL CAM. AND GOOD REVIEW TOO

Yes. That's it. Not much difference in size from a pop can.

I don't know if I'm convinced enough at the moment to buy one though, because they're not taking care of their suppliers. If they won't take care of their suppliers, why in the world would they take care of their end-customers.

Here's the Bushnell brother of the Scout Guard, the Bushnell Trophy Cam.

I started the year with batteries still in my I40 from last year, and even after about 3500 pics this late summer and fall, I just now will be replacing the batteries. And they actually have about 30-35% life, just don't want them to go dead while out there.

Truthfully, none of these cameras are worth the price you pay for them.

You can build a trailcam that outperforms any of the commercial cameras.

And not to mention for less than 1/3 of the cost.

If you are interested, U2U me & I can give you more info.

I have a scoutguard, moultrie, stealth cam, 2 wildviews, and 2 cuddies. All of them have good qualities, but none are perfect. My favorite is the stealth cam 8.0 IR, but have had to return it twice already. but when it works it is fast, batts last long, not red IR, and the pics are excellent. Scout guard does not have a pic counter on it, and you have to plug a do hickey in to set it, fast trigger though. Moultrie has ok trigger, good IR, ok batt life, but lots of blurry deer. Wildviews are good for the money, but will definately want the 12v batt to go with it. Trigger is REALLY slow, so you have to set it in front of a lick. Cuddies have a super fast trigger, but my card reader/camera will not read the cards in the woods, have to bring them home to see what is on them, batt life is just ok, and with the new captures that i have, there is no way to take more then one pic with each trigger, so you have one shot of the deer and by the time it triggers again in 30 sec. the deer is gone. For $129. bucks I bought that stealth cam 8.0 IR (on sale), and paid for the gear guard, and I would say it is prolly my favorite cam. If you want to see examples of some u2u me and i will show you what I am talking about.:wave:

Here is a sample of a cam that you can build for right around $150.00

Clean, compact, faster trigger speed than any of the store boughts, and superior picture quality.

Here are some samples of the photos you get with a Home Built cam. These pics were taken with a 3 MP cam.
Compare these to any 8.0 mp or higher store bought.
