    I have a buddy that swears by Primos. He likes the simplicity and says his pics are good and doesn’t really want video.

    I just happened to find some 8MP Coverts on Ebay and bought them. I am really just looking to see if we are feeding coons and turkey or any decent deer (also helps keep the the tenants of the house near the property honest). I know I have deer there, but not sure if its the same one or there are a few. Like was said, I aint framing them, so pretty much anything showing buck or doe would answer my questions, I just don't like throwing away money if I don't need too.

    raised n Bullitt Co.
    check out www.trailcampro

    i've had Cuddeback (junk in my experience), bushnell and browning. while there are a lot of Covert fan boys on here, Covert was/is a site sponsor and one of the guys that worked for them would post incredible pictures. one of the compliments on Covert was always the customer service, which is great when needed, but maybe I've been lucky, I've never had to use the Bushnell or Browning CS. i personally like the Brownings better of the two.

    I second the trailcampro.com for reviews.

    I use Browning and Spypoint 11D's. Spypoints are 5 yrs old not a lick of problem with this model. My brownings which I have most of have been very solid cameras. In the past have bought the brownings on Amazon in 4 packs.
    I use the PlotWatcher Pro on a few fields. It is a time lapse (I get them off Newegg.com cheapest place I can find them) and I really like them. Helped me kill my buck last year!

    I just won a bid the other night on a DLC Covert MP6. Waiting for it to arrive. A lot of people don’t like eBay but I’ve found some good deals through the years.

    I got two out at a property that will be hunting for the first time this year. According to the owner no one has hunted it in years (I’m not so sure) but I’m anxious to see some pics anyway.

    You'll like the MP6, I've owned about every reasonably priced trail cam out there and these are by far my favorite.

    I just bought two covert black maverick under another name of Game Keeper Consensus 1080 on ebay for $106 shipped,
    they're made by covert and even have covert warranty papers inside the box. haven't tried the video mode though night pics aren't great but not horrible either.

    I've never used video on any trail camera, it does however have full and half power setting options for the flash.
