Hey guys.... I saw a post that's OLD on trail cameras. Like any technology, a lot gets better & "usually" gets cheaper over time. Lemme ask you guys this (and I realize there's actual trail cam reviewing websites, sometimes I agree with them, sometimes not). I've run a ton of all sorts of brands. What's your opinion based on this criteria (sorry- getting a little more specific): - mid-range pricing. $100-225 -customer service, warranty, simple returns & maybe length of warranty. Basically- which cams don't break & when they do, a snap to resolve. For example: my Cuddebrokes of years past broke often & when they did - the return was so bad I simply tossed em. On flip side, covert has been good in years past, lower failure rate and great turn around time. Wanna hear you all's opinion for sure. -picture quality. For this, if anyone could say they find xyz brand to have "good quality" IR pics- I'd love to hear it. I personally won't run flash cams & ive seen some IR cams with good quality pics and others that if any movement they are blurry. To be clear: I don't need "perfect pics" - just enough to clearly identify a deer. -Battery life on AA only, etc, etc. **FYI- as many of you may or may not know- there's usually a couple main trail camera designers out there. "XYZ" company stamps their name on it but many companies may actually have the same technology with minor tweaks. To add to that- there's a few plants in China that make most of these. Any company can have bad "batches" depending on the LOT produced & have issues at XYZ plant- next batch may be much better. Some companies seem to have better results here or may not use some of these Chinese designs. I can't recall which ones, for example, I know Reconyx does NOT do this for example. I'm sure some others. Personally, Id like to find some that don't but also don't cost $500. Why on here I'm saying $100-225. Summary: Best camera that dies the least, decent to good pics, great warranty, etc, etc - in the recent year or 2. Thx! ****i have no bias in this btw. I run about 4 brands right now & do like several of them. Many are 2-6 years old. So- just FYI, no dog in fight or bias of anytype. Sure don't mind if someone posts that does. I'm just clarifying on my specific position.
