Looking to spend around $100 or less. I currently have a Primos TruthCam 35 and have had pretty good luck with it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Chuck Norris doesn't need a trail cam...the deer report to him.

I have just rec'd my first Primos Ultra Truth Cam 35 back from repair...a new replacement that is. It melted the batteries into the case after two outings. Someone will be along soon that knows about ratings of the different brands. ;\)

My personal opinion for best cams $100 or less is Moultrie. I have several that were under $125 and I've been using them for years with no problems. Others may and will disagree but mine are still going strong. Currently have 6 out and 4 out of 6 are over 3 years old. 2 are bout 5 years old.

I love my wildgame innovations. I bought it almost 2 months ago. And put it uo 2 weeks later since then I've gotten well over 1000 pics. With maybe 10 total white out pics. And hasn't used any battery.

I have two Wildgame Innovations cameras. One is the IR D6 and the other is the MINI IR. They both stopped taking pictures. Contacted WGI and was told by their customer service staff that the only two SD cards that they approve for use in their cameras are Sandisk and Lexar. All other types will lock the Wild Game Innovations cameras.

To make a very long story a lot shorter. WGI refused to honor their 1 year warranty on the cameras. You have to register your camera with them when purchased to qualify for the warranty and the start of the active warranty period is the date of actual manufacture not the date of purchase. I will never purchase anything made by Wildgame Innovations again.

Please update your camera status in 20,000 more pictures.
