DLC makes a decent camera for Made in China


As much as I would like to buy "Made in USA" cameras, I don't think I could afford to do that and still cover as many different areas as I want to cover. It is what it is...


Agreed. Although I've always been a fan of Made in USA Reconyx cameras, they've priced themselves right out of the market. I noticed that for 2013 Reconyx has come out with a line of cameras that look and perform just like most of the Chinese cameras. Yet they are asking $600 for them! They've got to be kidding...

Yep, it's a bit difficult to strap $600 to a tree and walk away. My personal limit is more like $100. I had a $150 camera stolen 5 or 6 years ago and I decided at that point that I was going as cheap as possible. I don't really care to get pictures that are magazine cover quality - I just want to see what the deer looks like. \:\)

Personally, I need two features that add cost: true black-flash, and clear day/night images for identifying individual bucks by what can be fairly subtle antler shape differences. For those two features I'll spend upwards of $250, but in the last year I've been finding camera with those features in the $170-200 range.

The pony express (mail) dropped off a package with a new Black 60 in it this morning. The price on 2012 model was just too good to pass up - I don't need HD and sound on videos anyway and that was the main updates to the 2013 cameras. I have had 2 Black 60's for over a year that have been great so far, and you can't beat the battery life on them. I run rechargables in mine and it is great just changing out the SD cards when I check them and not have to swap batteries but 3 times a year. The only drawback to them is that night pictures are not all that great (common on black flash cams).
