Got a buddy that is going today to buy another camera.

Under $200 what camera should he buy?

Obviously I'm not BSK but I've been running about 10 Moultrie Blackflash cameras and have had 0 issues. Little grainey sometimes but for $150 I can't complain and the ones from last year are still going strong... Just my 2 cents

I'm a Moultrie guy but I recently purchased a Covert MP6. I paid $150 and it takes great pics, I have no complaints. And will be buying more of them in the future ..

x2. We got two of the MP6 Black (black flash model) for $150 each on Ebay. They come with a one year warranty and you can buy an additional year of warranty for about 12 dollars. And, I heard (read) BSK saying positive things about he Coverts on another similar thread.

I just got a cover black 60 for $190 on ebay, after reading covert reviews on here. I haven't had enough time to form an opinion on it, but at about 1/3 the price of the reconyx black flash, it's off to a good start.

Right now, I would have to recommend the Covert Black 60. Although I believe the Moultries have improved dramatically, I'm worried about the audible "clunk" I've been hearing about when their IR filter arm moves over the camera's lens. That's a very bad thing to have. Deer hear it and avoid the camera. In fact, I think audible filter-arm noise is worse than a visible flash when it comes to producing camera avoidance by deer.

For what it's worth, I have a few Moultrie M-990i cameras. I've played with them a good bit and haven't heard any audible "clunk" noise that BSK described. I'm certainly not saying that he doesn't know what he's talking about, but I haven't had any issues out of mine and I haven't had any pictures of spooked deer.

For the price on Amazon I'm very satisfied with them.

Covert.

Best choice in that price range.
