I recently picked up a Wildgame Innovations Micro Crush 3 from Wal-Mart which was $69. I know these cams have a small following but my x6c cams actually worked pretty good for a few years. This cam is picture and video only (no time lapse). Its provides 3MP images, has about a 45 foot flash and senses probably out to about 60 ft in my walk by test. It takes 8 AAs which the packaging claims will last for 40,000 pictures but I know for sure cold weather will knock that number down. I've had in the field for 1 week and in that time it took almost 800 pics near a feeder. So far it looks like a pretty good cam for $69. I had 2 semi white-outs, there was average blur and I'd say takes average day pics and better than average night pics which is all subjective anyway. Here are a few example pics for anyone who might be interested...

I've had numerous cams from this manufacturer and here is what I've found. The higher end cams have lasted 3-5yrs with most surprisingly still going. The cheaper ones last a season, maybe even two at best. You can almost budget for them each season, like your corn cost :)

the night pics look pretty good considering the price of the camera.

The Wildview TK-40 is OK... it takes average day pics but has a weak night flash. For those who don't know this is a black flash Wildview camera out this year. I still have a couple of the old Wildviews which still work but so many better cams have come along over the years. Sometimes I'll use the old cams on my property as decoys to see if anyone is nosing around. The TK-40 only has about a 30ft max night flash so I'll place it tight spot where black flash won't spook a buck at a scrape or rub site. I suspect most will think the night flash is not acceptable but you just need to set it within 30 foot (preferably 20 or 25ft) of the location you are hoping to get pics. I erased my sample pics but when I get it back out I'll post some. The cam is about the size of an MP6.

Nothing wrong with those pics. It would be a good public land cam.

I think those pics look great, and I agree the night pics on these cams are superb!

X2!!

There is always going to be a place for these inexpensive cams. My four $50.00 WGI W6XAC are still going strong after almost 2 years. With the camo job on them they hide very well in the woods. The small size and ease of use is also a big plus. I use them on public land without too much worry.

I've seen several posts over the last few weeks that ask "what's the best cam under $100 bucks?". Not sure this is the best but it's worth a look if you don't want to spend very much.

my experience was not as yours has been my second ever cam was the top of the line ir 8x i got every differt color of photo that one can immagine , i had a cam that would ware it self out on leaves but if there was fur it had to be in there face , a pittiful cam it was replaced and replaced and replaced and reoplavced/';.,]oujb by the next year pulse x 10x with the wi fi thing, finally last summer they got me a x10 cg which i could finnally at least call a cam, one of the two still works , the night time pictures are great.
it took me almost three years to get a workin cam, my take on wgi is that they are the king of bullett points , only problem is that it is just bullett points , the cams don,t actually do what they are supposed to do. the x10 supposedly had the side sensors like the little acorn? great battery life? those cams were lucky to evem take a 1,000 pictures before being dead. the thing that i watched that made up my mind was the wifi thing, i watched as many really smart people tried to get it to work and i do not believe anyone was ever successful. i am sure that if i were to pull a stunt like that i would end up in prison with OJ as my roommate. some have had great luck with there cheaper cams , as often has been said w.g.i. will give great pictures if you get any.
sorry for the rant but i believe that what i was talkin about might have something to do with the lack of interest in there products.
