    I'm using both a cuddeback and a Stealth cam. Both seem to take great pics day and night. One is an IR and the other isn't. To be honest I don't see much of a difference in the both of them as far as pictures are concerned. With the stealth I can view pics right there on the spot. Although the screen is about the size of a gameboy screen. So the over 45 crowd better have their glasses . I don't bother with that.
    Also if this (or most cameras from what I have read) are facing the sun your going to get alot of blank shots. I have.The cuddeback is much easier to set up and seems to have a much longer battery life than the stealth.
    Good luck.

    I am currently in my Jr year of college so I will be looking for the value for the money. I dont want to go to cheap and have them not work right but I also will not have 500 dollars to go spend a couple of cameras. my price range is around the 100 dollar mark. Thanks for all the info guys keep it coming.

    The primos 60 trailcam infared is a good camera and does not spook the deer. Me too I will not spend high dollars for a camera. I just need to see what it is. I do not need a high detailed picture just a black and white.

    I use the cheapest moultrie camera. I own 4 and they are great hunting tools. In my area they sell between $58 and $85. I turn the flash off and just get pictures of animals that come in when I can see to shoot. If you want to get night pictures, get what Dan is using, the infared. You don't want flash.
