Joined: 1/15/2010I bought a Cuddeback Attack IR this year. I had nothing but trouble. Could not get a real person at customer service at all. I do not talk negative about anyone but you need to check the reviews. I have always owned Cuddebacks in the past but you need to read the reviews for the later cameras. Moultrie M100 is a great little camera. Little Acorn is a great little camera. And there are others. Good luck choosing.
Which ones did you have that broke??
Moultrie Game spy I-40 infrared- worked good for 5 years, still takes pictures but the lcd “settings” screen is unreadable, and the test light doesn’t work. I have it out in the woods now though.
Bushnell don’t know the name, got it from walmart, stopped taking pictures.
Bushnell 8mp trophy cam-Takes great pictures, clear, fast trigger speed, still takes pictures but something with the sd card slot is broken so it wont save pics onto an sd. Really good camera, not sure what happened.
Wild game Innovations IR4 4mp-Camera is messed up from the beginning, sometimes takes pics like 2 pics of the biggest 2 bucks we ever got on trail cam up to date, but most of the time it doesn’t even sense anything or take a picture. Other people have had the same problems.OldBoys Outdoors Ltl Acorn is a Great Camera w/Great Customer Service
Moultrie M-80 is hard to beat for the money.

I tested my Bushnell 8mp Trophy Cam yesterday and it works now!!!!!!! I think the prob was from the sd card, not the sd card slot.
Joined: 2/20/2005I’ve had a Bushnell 5mp Bone Collector Trophy Cam, a Stealth Archers Choice, and a Moltrie M-80x out this year. Here’s my take…….
All 3 take good quality daytime photos. The difference comes into play in the night photos and sensor performance.
#1 – The M-80x – The best bang for the buck. Has the best flash range of the 3 but it will kind of white-out very close deer. Tkes some very good night photos.
*2 – The Archers Choice – Decent flash range, good night photos, the trigger speed could possibly be better – I seem to get more partial photos on this cam than the others, although this may have been due to the location vs the other cams.
#3 – Trophy Cam – Poor flash range makes for poor night photos, I have numerous photos that I see nothing but glowing eyes outside the flash range. The sensor is maybe the best of the 3. Wish I could put this sensor in the other cams. I’m really dissapointed in this night time performance of this camera. I’ll be saving this camera for the ‘tighter’ areas to compensate for the poor flash range/night photos.The 2010 bushnell’s had issues, 2009 are really good & 2011 so far are good. In 2010 they change who was manufacturing them for them & made a big boo-boo. Usually in very cold weather w/the 2010 u will either get run off ( Fills SD card w/nothing) or white out pics (Just White pics). Most 2010 do have a 2 yr. warranty & if u call them they will replace it with the new 2011 model. They are pretty good with this knowing the problems they are having with them.

Thats a great site to check out. The best without a doubt is homebrews. Got quite a few still going since 2003. Reconyx is top of the line for commercial cams but you will pay. Have read there customer service is unbeatable as well.
