Here's an add for the new high-resolution cameras being made by Reconyx (this add was posted on Chasingame.com in their "What's new for 2013" section). They new cams have imaging up to 8 MP. However, they look an awful lot like all the Chinese made cams (but cost three times as much):

No Reconyx camera is worth 1/2 the price they charge. I can buy 4 $150 cams and get WAY more pics out of them.

I disagree. I would buy a $300 black flash Reconyx in a heartbeat! They are worth every penny

Even at $300 you could still buy two cheaper cams and get more pics. At $600, I feel bad for whoever wastes their money.. Especially on the white-flash model.

I like having several cameras. We have 6 (had 7 but I lost one ) I want to have about 20 so I'll buy two or three more this year and a bunch next year. I doubt my $50 Tascos will make it much longer though.

It's also hard to put a price on cheap cams' failing to get the pics. I can put a price on my time, and you will spend more time working (and being frustrated) with less reliable cams that miss a lot of pics a Reconyx would get.

I try to think in terms of price vs. value, and just how much value can I afford. Some cheap cams end up costing more than a Reconyx (figure your postage for returns, wasted gas to check cams that didn't work, figure your time at minimum wage, wasted, etc.) and then fail to deliver the pics you were wanting.

Most $150 trail cameras will catch anything that passes by. They don't quite have the range of a Reconyx, but unless you are set up on a food plot, it really won't matter.

I love my Reconyx cams. They have work almost flaw-free for many years and catch pictures almost no other cam will. In addition, the ones I use are virtually infinitely adjustable, including adjusting the time between each burst mode photo and the number of burst mode photos taken.

That said, considering the increase in quality if the $150-200 cams in the last year or so, I just can't justify spending $600 on a camera.

I've been lucky on that. Never had a camera fail.

I couldn't disagree more. How many Reconyx cams have you run side by side with a $150 cam to test your theory?
