Unfortunately, Moultrie ruined their welcome with me a long time ago and I won't buy anything from them ever again.

I still haven't bought another Moultrie, due to my past negative experiences. But hey, manufacturers change over time. A company that made crap cameras one year can suddenly start making good cameras. Look at Bushnell. Their first few years produced horrible cameras. Now they are one of the better manufacturers. Quality can also go the other direction. The first two years under the Cuddeback name, they produced some of the best digital trail-cameras ever made (C1000 and C3000). Everything since has been crap.

I got a couple moultrie black flash this year and I like them a lot. Not the best night time pics but that's what you get with a black flash from what I understand. Good illumination just a little fuzzier than I would like...

I recently looked into affordable black flash cameras.

That TruthCam Blackout that you linked is the older model. It is big and will make a clunk noise when it fires. The new smaller version is the TruthCam Ultra Blackout.

You can get it for a very good price here: Primos Truth Cam Ultra Blackout

"If you are looking to purchase a no glow infrared camera for under $200, the two highest rated cameras are the Moultrie M-80 Black and the Spypoint BF-7. While the Moultrie takes a better day photo, the Spypoint BF-7 has a slightly quicker trigger speed and the night photos are much sharper. This camera excels in either security or wildlife applications."

Trailcampro.com: Moultrie M-80 Black Review

Good price here: Moultrie M80 Black Flash Game Spy Camera Camo

Trailcampro.com: Spypoint BF-7 Review

Good price here: Spypoint Bf-7 Black Flash Digital Camera Camo

If it were me I would get the Spypoint BF-7. The Moultrie M-80 BLX would be my second choice. I wouldn't consider the Primos Ultra Blackout. It has too many poor reviews online.

I have a Blackout and don't necessarily like it. I thought it was great at first...til my wife got us a cheap Truth 35 cam. I think it's one of the better cams out there right now (the older Truth 35) because it actually picks up a bit further than they advertise it at...vs the Blackout that really don't take that great of pics at night (if the critters are walking, they are almost always too blurry to see any detail). Day time pics are awesome though.

I am not a fan of the black flash or IR cameras. I wish more companies were still making white flash cams. I'm not a Cuddeback fan either, but they are just about the only ones still making a white flash cam.

I will put you in my Blackout for a good price if you still want one of those...got a new Ultra 46 too that I will sell ya for $100 even and it's practically brand new.
