    What is a good scouting camera for a reasonable price? I dont know all that much about scouting cameras, so just a good camera that doesnt have a lot of gizmos.

    I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the new cameras currently on the market as long as you stick with a name brand. We've got a couple bushnell, a moultrie, stealth and a couple wildgame cams. All of them have worked well for us and get plenty of pictures. The old moultrie cam did have some distorted images but that may have been the tree moving in the wind that we had it up on.

      Not really the question, but just as an opinion I think one good camera is better than two somewhat decent ones. Now, the cheapest cameras on the market will work, but not as well as the more expensive ones(generally speaking of course).

        Don't go to cheap..I went with a cheap $70 camera and it was piss poor. The picture quality just wasn't there and it burnt through batteries quickly. It was only good for telling me if deer were there, not how big or nice they were.

          I have a Moultrie and it works really good, its not a Cuddyback, but it was alot cheaper.

            I use a Wildgame iR5 and have been plenty happy with it. I belive I paid about $110 for it a couple years ago. It has the infared flash which I have found handy and it also has the ability to take short video clips.

            Just like any other piece of gadgetry they add bells and whistles every year. Take advantage of last years models if you are looking to save some $$$. I recently saw some 5 megapixel infared cameras on clearance on Midway's website for $50-60.

              Well, you definitely get what you pay for in trail cameras, up to a point, but the lower-end Moultries are probably the best bang for your buck that I've found. I've heard good things about the new Primos cams too, but never tried them. In general, I would shy away from anything that sells for much less than $100, and avoid Cuddebacks at all costs, they are total crap.
