    Need recommendations on buying game camera

    I am looking for ideas for a game camera for a family member for a Christmas gift. I have never used one so I am green when it comes to cameras. I would like to stay under 100 dollars, Just need a decent camera for wildlife. Ideas Please
    Thanks!
    Is there anything better than being in the woods?!

    well I personally think that almost all the cam's for under a 100 bucks are about the same
    they work OK, but have nothing on a better cam, you get what you pay for, just stick to a brand name and look for one's on sale, would be my best suggestions if your looking to stay under 100 bucks

    other wise I woudl say your better off buying a better cam, like a cuddleback, they should eb on sale now for under 200, but get a budget is what a budget is!

    Try the Moultrie M-80 XT (Around 90 bucks by it now option on ebay) or the Wildgame Innovation red 6 cam. Both great cams for the money.

    I recently picked up a Bushnell camera at Walmart for $99. I takes pretty good photos. The batteries (4AA) last a very long time to boot.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    Go to to trailcampro.com. Great site to read reviews on all the popular brands and they make recommendations at all price levels. You can order cameras from there too.

    I don't disagree with mrbb very often but I would not ever buy a cuddyback. there costomer service is a joke. When I did call them after they listen to my problem I was promply told maybe I shouldn't own a cuddyback. So thats why I feel the way I do. My issure was having problems with formating the card. But the story ends pretty good. I had one camera stolen last yr. Yup, it was my cuddyback. Problem solved. I do own a low end Primos carmera. For the money its great. Trailcampro.com is a great place to start. Good luck.
    what goes around, comes around. (I sure do hope so)!!

    Try the spypoint. I had a cuddeback, this is twice the camera for half the price. Very good quality pics especially for an IR!
