    You know like wiht any product they'll have there pros and cons. SO really its up to you as to what you want it to do and how much your willing to spend.I could not bring myself to spend $300.00 on a trail cam for bear hunitng after hearing all the stories about them eating them.
    So I went with a GameSpy Moultrie myself for $70.00 to see how it would hold up.Just my 2 cents worth.Try one brand your set on and work off of that. Daniel

    Smile Trail cam

    Just "GOOGLE" driveway sensor. It lets you know inside the house that someone is near. Could work for RMK 4x4

    Default Trail Cams

    Here's my opinion.

    I have a trail camera, only one, have only owned one.

    Digital is THE way to go. 35mm gets VERY expensive, very fast.

    Everything else is your preference.
    Trail cams rarely take photo's that you'll want to make into something worth printing. So, resolution is really - irrelevant...
    Unless you are attempting to capture license plates - then you will need an IR cam with high res. Even with that as a point of interest, your budget will determine which one.

    With that being said, I have the Cuddeback 3000, it's old by electronics standards, but is fairly quick to react, takes 3 mp pictures, and has a flash. Uses 4 D cell batteries that will last about a week during peak bear feeding.
    I only get to check my station on weekends - the trail cam is invaluable to help determine what kind of bears are feeding (big, small, cubs, brown, etc.).

    Bears have licked, pawed, mouthed, and bit my camera, but it's still hanging in there. Only superficial damage - thus far.

    I have only handled my camera with clean rubber gloves - in hopes to keep the scent down.

    If I were starting out today, I'd get one with IR, only so that the critters don't investigate the bright flash of light. I have had no indications that the flash 'scares' or deters them - peaks their curiosity, then back to matters at hand.

    Good luck!
