You need to delineate what it is about a trail camera that you think makes it great.

I get mine at Walmart for $25 and they do everything they need to.

Some folks need them to provide 12 gig clarity and make movies and don't feel they can be happy unless they've spent $300+ for them.

I've got a couple buddies who have spend a lot of cash on the top of the line (their opinion) cams. And at the end of the day they really don't do much better than my $70 Moultrie A20i and a $50 Wild Game Innovations that I have. However, I don't like how the WGI camera mounts to a tree, I had to make some modifications to mount it without buying WGI's too-expensive mount.

Yeah, check out Trailcampro.com they have lots of reviews, and they offer free shipping, 2 year warranty and they include a memory card, too.
I recently used them to decide on buying 2017 Browning Strike Force HD PRO. So far they are great cameras and don't cost an arm and a leg.

And camera brands and models can vary drastically from year to year and model to model. Just because "x" brand (or model) was good or bad last year doesn't mean it's the same this year.

Browning, moultrie may make Browning cams as stated above but ive never had a moultrie that compares to my Browning cameras. Just my experience.

I run Coverts and really like them. I'd never buy a Wild game nation ,as the owner is a convicted poacher,and game violater

Coverts have been my pick of mid priced cams, but neighbor has a Bushnell that seems to be really good.

In my experience, they all last about 4 years......

I've had really good luck with the Bushnell trophy cams. Got some going on 6-7 years. Picked up a browning last year and it's good also

I have gone thru most brands and they all give out in the end. The last couple I have bought have been Browning and they have been pretty reliable for the last two years.

I had a Stealth, slow trigger speed and no trigger speed after a year.

I bought a Browning to replace the Stealth and it is amazing compared to the Stealth. It will trigger 30 yards away or more on a squirrel sized object.

I haven't used a trail camera for a few years, but 5 months on one set of batteries ??? I could almost get 2 weeks when I used them back in the day.... Is this true ?

I have many brands of cameras . Covert is the most reliable and the battery life is outstanding! I have one in Colorado, 3 in Kansas that stay out year round and will still be 90-100% battery life after being out a full year with Energizer Ultimate Lithium’s. The cam in Colorado has been on the same tree since July of 2014.
I have not used Browning but hear nothing but good about them. I just ordered a Browning HD Pro to try. Says 120’ flash range!

I have a close highschool friend that works for Federal ammo and he gave me a Primos cam. It's ran all winter with great pics and the batteries have lasted well.
I would have never bought one, but the price was right. It's great to watch what they do and the times the do come by.
