Buy one with a Sony P32 camera and then carefully take it apart to see how it has been hacked.....That is how I learned....
On the boards- I personally think that the Bigfoot board are the easiest...

you may get lucky by searching the diy section. it's possible someone has tackled this one before.
Good luck!

Check out the Trail Cam tutorial (sticky) at the top of the game camera section. It shows step by step how to build a trailcam. You can also use the search feature to find out how to hack different cameras. Most of the trailcam parts suppliers have info on them as well.

First off choose the camera you plan on useing. For your first one id suggest a P32 or a P41. They both take good pictures and easy to hack. The P32 will be cheaper and trailcam supply has good deals on them

Once you figure out the camera you are useing we will gladly help you along the way.
As for cases there are a few options to use

There is

a real good tutorial in the stickies of this forum that Buckshot posted a while back.

You can also acess this index page - it is the place to visit for Homebrewers

I would start with a p32 for your first build - buy the shutter assembly from BFotdoors - it is only $.75 but worth so much more. A kit would be a good idea for your first build as well. it will cost a littel more, but you will have everything that you need at your finger tips. WTS has some nice kits, but Daryl has been struggling to keep his products in stock.

Hit me with a PM if you need anything else.....
