Personally I like the IR camera's that are on the market,I bought a nice Moultrie I-60 at BassProShop for $200.00 and since I bought items from there before I got a $20.00-off coupon so it ended up costing me $180.00 + tax so I was back up to $200.00 total which is a very good price for a 6 Megapixel trail camera.It takes some really nice night pictures and great color day pictures and you can set on video also,the 72 LED's carry out very far and the 6-D cell batteries last a long time and it has a fast trigger speed.I also use rechargable batteries so I save money in the long run and you can buy a solar powered charger that runs the camera with its own internal battery.I have found them for around $79.99 to $69.00 or for the lowest price at www.walmart.com
for around $49.00.
Right now in Southeast Missouri we have the Moultrie 4.0 IR camera on sale at a local Lumber and Feed Store for $169.00,model MFH-I-40 #9498 which is a good price for the 4 megapixel Infared camera.
I have also seen the Moultrie I-60 camera,which is a camera with 2 more megapixels and a built-in viewer of the animals on the camera that you can view out in the field on sale for around $214.00 on-line at www.walmart.com
I've heard great reviews about the Cuddeback Capture which is going to be a "Flash" Camera,and the *New up-graded 2010 Bushnell Trail Camera is suppose to be better than the older Bushnell Trail Camera's.
