I borrowed a friends digital cam and took this pic. I am in the market for a cam but I wanted to know what you thought about the digital cams. I find the stealth cams quite pricey. Let me know what you think...

digital cam

Have some pics of mine on this site also. Used a Cuddeback digital. Pics are great and the cam is very reliable. I think you can buy one for as low as 200.00
I had a film cam before. With the money I spent on developing the film the digital was way better. Plus your limited to the number of pics per roll. With a memory card I have gotten as many as 394 pics at one time.:wink:

I had one of the "better" film cams and now have a digital and can tell you there is no comparison. No more going to the drugstore to have film developed (time and money wasted) only to find the trigger was so slow that you get to look at the same scenery over and over.

Digital is the way to go

I have moultrie I40 and S40 home brew and its so nice to be able to check the pictures in the field or just switch out memory cards. On my moultrie I have recorded 1500 pictures with the image quality set on high and still had 93% battery life. I have used the same batteries in my I40 all summer total pics over 5000 and still have juice left, a film camera wouldn't even come close to that. I mean come on who wants to scan 35 pictures to be able to put them on you computer and post them on this fine site. Not me....

You will get what you pay for, so save up a little more to spend as much as you can afford for a higher priced camera, you'll be glad you did! I haven't tried a scoutguard, but i haven't found a good one under $300 yet.

I've already looked into them for a dealership, but i'm going to just stay with Predator for now, you know- if it ain't broke don't fix it! I got great luck with Predators, but the SG550 is a nice cheap ($) alternative. Your right, they are alot of guys selling them and they have a MAP of $199.xx, lets just say they don't have much markup in them at that price!
