    So I'm looking for a trail camera. It just needs to take pictures and videos if possible. doesn't have to be perfect. Also need to be able to see whats going on in the picture. $90 and preferably under. Any brand. don't care about type of flash or glow. My old one crapped out on me. Any suggestions?

    I got a primos bullet proof cam for around $40 and it has performed just fine. I don't remember the model, but I got a discontinued moultrie in that same price range and its even better. Amazon.com is where I shop.

    Just follow the directions to the letter, no matter what brand you buy, regarding formatting the sd cards. I think if you cross your cards, you've essentially broken your camera with some models. Been there, did that. LOL.

    Go on Ebay and buy a Moultrie M880i from VMinnovations. You can find them for $80 and 2 year warranty.

    Check out Eyecon cameras, you can get their Crossfire for around $70. I've had one for the past year and don't have any complaints.

    I just started using a Wildgame Terra6. I just have taken video with it. I really like the video. Walmart for $45. Here is a YouTube video with footage from it. The last couple clips are from another camera. You can tell them because they have no time stamp. Just My Luck - YouTube

    Sam's Club has a 10 MB Stealth cam. Comes with batteries, SD card for $89 right now. One thing I have learned from buying cheaper cameras is to protect them a little bit from the elements. I make a little back piece with a roof over the camera to keep the water off, somewhat. I had a Wildgame camera that filled with water after a storm. Learned my lesson.
