    A friend of ours let us use his to see what was eating our chickens. When we asked what we should buy he said get the one thats around 79$. They are cheap nut work better then the most expensive ones you can buy. Oh yeah make sure it has a flash. We saw all kinds of critters. What shocked us the most was how all of they visited the same coop every night. My cat would show up and smell around every time the raccoon or skunk would leave but he never got harmed.

    Yeah, I got one also just to see what has been coming around the coop. I was shocked at what came around in the daytime even that I didn't know about. I bought my camera thru a catalog---SportsmanGuide, and went for the one with a infared flash and a memory chip I could remove/upgrade to view the pics:

    Not sure what the last picture came from, maybe a bushnell one, that name sounds familiar. [​IMG]

    I have 2 different brands & types. I have 2 Moultrie i40 infrared cameras and a Cuddeback Attack flash camera. I thought that the flash on the Cuddeback would scare away the critters but it doesn't seem to bother them ~ it also gives nice color pictures in the dark. The infrared also give good black & white pictures and are better when you don't want it to be obvious you are taking pictures after dark ~ like when you are spotting 2 legged predators. I do like that both use SD cards which can be switched out in the woods instead of taking the camera to download.
