One somewhat "outside the box" thing Cabela's did with their new offerings was offer a full-color traditional white flash cam with 10 mp. That's taking a different angle on the market, possibly going after a segment disenchanted with all the blurry B&W nighttime images they're getting.


I'm seeing more and more new cams with a white-flash option. I think these offerings are for those new to the trail-cam market who never experienced the homebrew hay-day.

Just to set a standard, I think a man should get 2 seasons out of the cheapest cams sold.
And even more for the more expensive ones,the number one culprit ,that is killing these cams are bad seals letting moisture in.Have you ever looked at the rubber seal around the door? Looks like a rubber band.
I hold all my homebrews under water for 5 minutes ,I pull it out and dry the outside off,then I open the door .....and hopefully I have done my work well.

As a consumer and avid trail cam user, going into it, if I knew I'd only get 2 years out of a unit, I wouldn't have ever started buying trail arms in the first place.

In my opinion, the cheaper trail-cams should average three years of life. Some will last longer, some shorter, but the average should be 3 years.

Part of the issue . . . .
"How much of those 3 years will be warranty replacements?"

When you ship a cam back to be replaced or repaired under warranty, not only is that shipping at your time & expense, but you are going for an undetermined amount of time without the ability to take pics, an ability for which you have paid, but will never recoup under any warranty.

Yes, they SHOULD last longer, but good luck on that (at least the ones made in China).

Having tried various brands made in China, to date, I've yet to have a single cam "work as advertised" even for one year, although I do have some that have "somewhat worked" (just unreliably) for the past 3 years.
