Hey everyone,

I went to an outdoor show this weekend and saw a very cool game cam for sale. This was a digital game cam that had a solar panel on it and a cell phone inside it. When it takes a pic it sends the pic to their website and you receive an email saying that you have new pics. With gas getting to$3 gallon it may be something to look at in a couple of years....especially for those hunting in other states a long way from where they live. It was pricey $699 but maybe in a couple of years the technology will become more available and hopefully less money....oh also you had to take out a cellular contract for the phone for $22/month. I don't know what you guys think but it sounds like a concept/great idea that has some potential....especially if the price can come down some..

What they don't tell you is that YOU have to supply the cell phone and cell plan. If it's the one I've seen, it is VERY cool. But you have to supply a Handspring Treo (several hundred dollars) to put in the cam before the email feature will work.

It is a great concept. But at a total cost of close to a grand, the price is gonna have to come down (as technology always does) before most folks would think about it.

The one that you posted is like it but not the unit that I saw. For the sales price it actually had the phone included but you had to sign up for the cell contract. Also it sent the pics to their server and their server sent you an email letting you know that you had a new pic. Kinda the same concept and to be honest the first I heard of it.......I think it is a good idea but I'm sure I'll end up with a couple cuddebacks instead.......hopefully by next year anyway

Wait until you get the bill for the 900 porn numbers that get called after it gets stolen! :mg:

I was just going to say that it should be a neat thief catcher. The pic is already sent before they can destroy the thing. You'll have thier pic right at home to give to the cops.
