Re: TRAIL CAMERA LESS THAN $75
I would not recommend buying cheap cameras. To make any money on items like these, the manufacture is not going to put in expensive components.
As for putting cameras in areas where you suspect someone might steal them, why put them there in the first place. If PGC (not positive what this stands for as I am from a different area) is removing them, then (if I'm thinking in the right direction) the cameras had no business being there in the first place.
As mentioned, the Bushnell Trophy Trail camera and Moultrie M80 are excellent. I am using 7 of the 2009 model Bushnell Trophy Trail cameras and 2 of the Moultrie M100 which are a higher version of the M80. Both have worked flawlessly.
Bushnell offers a two year warranty from the manufacture whereas Moultrie offers one year. When set to video, the Moultrie takes a picture first, then the video. Field of view in the video is narrower than in the picture. Moultrie said this is how it downloads. Moultrie night video is limited to 10 seconds. Moultrie said increasing this would be harder on batteries. When emailing, requesting additional information, both companies have provided excellent customer service.
I've used the early version, WildView Ez Cam which only took pictures. Video was not out yet. Excellent daytime pictures, very hard on batteries and poor customer service.
SpyPoint IRB. Excellent daytime picture or video. Two cameras were returned due to video flicker. These were checked out and replaced. Excellent customer service.
Check out pictures and videos submitted on this forum and others, maybe asking the member what there likes and dislikes are.
Lock boxes and camouflage will help. Good luck in your choice.
