    I'm looking to get a game camera to setup near my coop. I really want to find one that has a good 30' range without a flash, but still takes good night time pictures. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I haven't had any issues yet, but I want to set one up before I do. I'm just as worried about 2 legged as 4 legged pests. I don't really care about video, but would like a decent picture without giving the camera location away.

    Thanks!

    From what I gather, (I could have it confused [​IMG])

    White flash takes a better picture but can scare the animals off and shows the position of the camera to humans so it will be detected.
    Infa Red's picture is not as good but generally doesn't scare the animals off and for the most part goes unseen by the human.

    Youtube has some good picture examples of the more popular brands. I did a lot of research on the trigger speeds. Slow trigger speeds seem to be a problem with some models that that means you get a partial picture of the animal in the frame.

    Forgot to add, the more mega pixels the better the picture. [​IMG]
