I wasn’t aware Amazon made trail cams. If you mean just cheap trail cams I had a couple apeman given to me. They were alright, pic quality was acceptable but the interface was clunky and they were very choosy about batteries they’d work with. All died within a year.

I’ve had great luck with the deeply discounted Stealthcams camofire has been posting occasionally in the past month.

I have a few Campark cams that have two years on them and are still going. Next step outdoors has a good review of cheap cams.

I've had good luck with Campark as well. They have been reliable, really clear pics and videos, decent battery life and pretty durable for around 50 bucks. I choose them to use over some of my $100+ cameras every time if it comes down to trusting it's going to work when I won't be back to an area for a while.

An excellent (and very cost effective alternative) are the $28 TASCO's that walmart sells. With the money you're saving buying these cameras, invest in some excellent quality Energizer LIthium Ion batteries, be sure to format the sd card each time you check them and they have been working for me like a charm. @Robert loper as well as many others on this forum have been using them with success as well. Good luck.

I was thinking more of the cell cams on amazon like winghome, meidase, those ones.

Has anyone used exodus? They are very expensive. Just wondering if they are worth it.

I haven’t personally used them but you can’t beat their 5 year warranty. But the initial higher cost is most likely how they financially make it viable for them to be able to offer the extended warranty.

I use the Campark cameras too. I’m on my second season with them and am pleased. I think the were around $40. Good pics, video, and audio. Depending on how I program it I’ve gotten three months on four AA’s.

Just bought a pair. We'll see how they do.
