Have a Wildview that I have complaned to the company about because it works with it feels like it.  Also have a Moultrie D40 which I have had for one month from the advice I got on another post here about Trail Cameras.  I love that one other than the cheap tree bungle cords.  Got my first deer pictures on it, has date and time with 4.0 Megapixels.   Thinking of buying another one!!!  --9-8-7

I use a moultrie 200  flash and love it.
I fixed up a t-post with a piece of wood to mount the camera onto and I just move it from feeder to feeder.

This year is the first for me with Moultrie and I absolutely love it.  I had used Bushnell and wouldn't recommend those to anyone.  They are junk.

One Cuddeback 35mm film camera, one Wildview Extreme 4, and two homebrews.  One S600 and one P41.  There is no comparison between the 'store bought'  units and the homebrews.   I only spent $99 on the Wildview but wished i waited and put that money towards building another homebrew.

Did you build them yourself or did someone build them for you. I am interested in more info on them. I'll PM you

Had one built for me and i did the second one myself.  I wanted to have one done properly so i could use it as a guide for mine.  I will build them from now on.  I may send the camera away to be hacked professionally though.  My fat fingers dont work well with those little wires..  ;D

I got the P41 camera for $75 on ebay and the kit was $120.  So under $200 cost.  You can find some better pricing on the cameras too if you look hard enough.  I've found the cameras pretty cheap at local pawns shops too.   
I like my S600 unit a little better than the P41.  Bigger flash and better quality.  Its a little slower but i still dont miss much.  Plus the cameras are usually cheaper than the P41.  I will be doing another S600 for my next one. 
Check out http://www.hagshouse.com , http://www.whitetailsupply.com , http://www.snapshotsniper.com and http://www.yeticam.com
Lots of great information on building your own.  It can be addicting though...
