Last year I purchased the Wildgame Innovations 1.3 mp trail camera. It's not the greatest trail cam, but you get what you pay for. This trail cam is the cheapest one you can get from WGI I believe. I think I got it for like $35 bucks at the Sportsman's Guide..[:)]..I think it's one of the cheapest trail cams you can find.
Right now the Sportsman's Guide is sold out of them, but you can get a two pack of them at BassProShops for like $80 bucks. Cheap right?!
Although a lot of the features don't work on mine, it still takes pictures-pretty good for $35-and it works. The trigger speed is probably around 3 seconds. Mine won't read SD cards, so I just have to use the internal memory, -Thats one of the worst things about it. It takes four C batteries, and they last about two weeks. In my opinion, that's probably pretty good batt. life for a $35 dollar camera -money probably piles up from all the batteries I have to buy though.
It has color day photos and a strobe flash at night that's suppose to reach 20 ft. Mine didn't seem to scare the deer much, but older bucks react the most. It's pretty easy to program, it only takes about 10 minutes to figure out. It comes with some bungie cords -that are pretty wimpie-that work ok enough.
I bought it last year, and it's still working fine. For $35 bucks, I think it was a good deal, even though a couple features don't work.
Here's a bunch of pictures I got with it last season.
