Default Lifespan of a camera

What's the lifespan of your cameras and which ones last the longest?

I don't expect to get more than three seasons out of them based on past experience. I don't pay more than 180 for any cam any longer because I know that when it breaks, I chunk it. No more time spent with sending it back. Hard to say which brand because to know it has lasted 4 years means you have no idea about the current offering from that company. And I have found that just because one company's specific model was good, does not mean all theirs current or old, was good. My current longer lasting..... and I will say best I have had so far for catching everything, is my Bushnells. my prinos are still kicking however i know they miss half. i can walk right by one on the way to a stand and once the card is pulled, I'm not there.

Browning Strike force models have all been great cameras for me i have 7 of them 2-3 yrs old nothing wrong yet they have clear pics, have great battery life, they take great videos, they are on the smaller scale, have fast trigger speed, blank pics are almost non-existant thru their life span they have been great cameras. I have tried cuddeback, wild game, moultrie, bushnell, primos, stealth, tasco, spypoint and have had horrible luck with all them.

Got a panoramic Moultrie I've been using for 5 years now and two of the Moultrie m-888s that are 3 years old and they all work just as good as the day I took them out of the box.

The Moultrie M80 is THE best trail camera the Chinese ever manufactured. Mine is going on 7 years of 24/7/365 use. Never had a problem with it.

I prefer bushnell. I have one of the original Trophy Cams that is still going, however has recently started to not like the "high" sensitivity. It has to be over 6 years old. It stays out about 9 months a year for all those years.

I plan to get another and when I do it will be a Bushnell.

Smile Reconyx

I have the very first Reconyx no-flash model. Has been on the same tree about 11 years straight. Just change batteries and the big old fashioned flash cards. Have one of the newer HC 600 Hyper fire that's been on it's own tree for about 5 years straight. Cost 2 to 3 times as much but when I bring a card out of the woods, I know it has pictures on it.

I have 5 RC60 and pick them up as I find them.

They were introduced in 2008 and replaced in 2010 by the Hyperfire.

I'm still running the first ones I ever bought HCO Scoutgard. I would say they are around 10 yrs old. All That I have bought since then are still working. Little acorn,Cuddeback,Bushnell and Browning strike force.

I'm not one to spend a whole lot of $$ on trail cams, as they tend to grow legs and walk off. Most expensive cam I have was $60 and its not even the best one I have. I have a $50 tasco that's probably 5 yrs old that has held up well.

I have some Brownings that are 3 years old.
Before them I had a couple Moultries and Wildgame that made it a season.

Default Browning Cameras

IMO the Browning cameras are the best purchase for a trail camera that anyone could make. We have a Browing StrikeForce that we bought the first year it came out and it has been functioning flawlessly ever since. Just bought another on a black friday deal and it is takes great pictures.

I have a Scoutgard that's still working that's over 10 years also. The Bushnell Trophy cameras and aggressor series have been my go to for years but the Browning HD's have been superior to them. For my money Browning would be the choice.
