Best Trail Cams

I want to replace my old trail cam. I was interested in finding out what your experience is with current models.
I had an older Moultrie 2.0 that used a rechargable six volt.
The Moultrie worked very well for a lot of years but has finally crashed. I noticed that most newer models take c or d cell batteries and have higher megapixels. What type of battery life do you get out of the smaller batteries?
Are the higher megapixels worth the extra money?

Re: Best Trail Cams

I got a Bushnell last year and i'm very pleased with it. take AA batteries that last for months. Only changed batteries once and i have it out all fall with as high as 50 pix a day on it [pix of us farming the fields, forgot to turn it off]. I've only changed the batteries once since I got it and there are always a bunch of pix on it [5 to 20 a night].

Re: Best Trail Cams

The only negative thing about my Bushnell Trophy Cam is that they had a little rubber "plug" on the bottom..My guess is that it is to leave rain water out?...Anyway, a bunch of red ants got up into mine (through that hole) and made a nest and disabled my camera for a while until I disassembled it and got rid of the colony.....Leave the plug in the hole.

Re: Best Trail Cams

Ken, is that the 8.0?
How is the battery life?
