    Good luck bud, With the exception of the Bushnell 2.1 TrailCam all the current under 150.00 cams suck according to the forums.

    Not sure if you thought of it before, but you can build your own and have superior quality to any commercial unit for half the price.

    If you'd like more info, let me know.

    I have built 4 homebrew trail cameras this year. One is 1.3 megapixels, two of them are 2.0 mp, and one is 3.2 mp (which is actually in progess). The most expensive was the 3.2, which utilizes a Sony P32 camera with a 128 mb memory stick. I have about $200 in it. The other three I have anywhere from $110 to $155 in them. There is a little soldering involved, but anyone with any technical ability can handle it, other than that, it takes nothing more than a little research and a little effort. You can build one in a day or so without much effort.

    Here are a couple pictures of the units I have built and some pictures from them. There are people who are much more professional than I am with these cameras, and they make them look almost as though they came off a store shelf. Keep in mind that effectively, a commercial camera is just a camera modified to fit in a case.

    The website that I frequent to learn how to build these is www.rd-hc.com Everyone there is extremely helpful, and very patient - so don't be afraid to ask questions. There are a couple other sites that people use, but I'm not sure what they are.

    If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. There is no way that I could completely cover the entire subject in one post.
