    Which one?

    I'm wanting to buy a new trail camera and was wanting some advice on which one to get. I want one with a small profile and good battery life at a reasonable price. So what should I get?

    You should definitely consider a quality homebrew - you can't get any "smaller profile" than 1010 build...If you need a cam to set on trails throw in a P41 or if most of your sets are on feeders, minerals, scrapes, etc...the s600 is the way to go....



    the cam above snapped this pic... (s600)


    here is one from a P41...


    If you want any info send me a PM...

    I agree about the customer service. It is PATHETIC. However, I've had 10 captures and have yet to have one tear up on it's own. I guess I'm just one of the lucky few.

    Take a look at these..........
    http://www.gandermountain.com/modper...t&merchID=4005

    Spypoint G4, a Gander Mountain exclusive. Good reviews for a commercial cam. On sale now and free shipping too.

    Like others have said.... stay away from Cuddeback.

    If you go over to Camtrapper.com, someone has a couple of S600 cams for sale for I think $130. That is the best deal on any cam you will ever find.

    Do some research and see if a homebrew sounds good. They aren't for everyone, I admit. Feedback on commercial cams seems to be Bushnell Trophy and Moultrie M80. Remember you usually get what you pay for.

    I agree, I have had 3 Cuddeebacks, and have never had any problems with any of them.

    CHeck out the complete line of Spypoint cameras, I have 2 IR5 and 4 IR6 now. All run off of 6 "AA" batteries. The IR5's had batteries put in them at the same time and one has been in the woods since the end of the first week of Janurary. It has taken approximrntly 20 pictures and close to 50 1 minute videos and the batteries are still reading full.

    Bushnell Trophy Cam is nice, has a lot of options to cover any way you decide to use it. I have one and can show you pics from it if you want.

    Surprised that nobody gave a mention to the Ltl Acorn cams. Very good quality and take great pictures as well. Plus they come with a 2 year warranty, just like the Trophy Cams do.

    Covert 3.0 leaves a lot to be desired.
