    My best and longest lasting cameras are all Cuddebacks. Although my experience with any of their black flash was terrible. They were junk imo. Right now I run 10 cuddeback IR and a couple cheap Brownings that have impressed me so far.

    Run Cuddebacks as well, enjoy them because they have a two year warranty on them which comes in handy sometimes. Only thing I don’t like is the fact that they seem to come out with a new design/camera about every year. When you have to put all your cameras in lock box’s because of the bear this becomes some what of a pain when you have to get a new camera and lock box. Got 3 new cabelas cameras this weekend and looking forward to see what they are like. Like the cableas brand just because of the name and warranty that comes with it.

    Thanks for all the great information. One of my first cameras was a Cuddeback but I don't think the batteries lasted very long. I don't know if that got better but I want one that will last long. I was thinking about getting a Browning before I started this thread and I think I will go that route.

    I have had a Bushnell out since mid December 2017 and just changed the batteries this past weekend. Probably 15-20K pics. On this last check I had a lot of black night pics but I think the batteries were about dead. No complaints on a $100 camera that stays on a tree year round. I'll probably buy another one when the sales start this fall.

    My experience with Exodus has been very disappointing as well. The 2018 Lift II was purchased directly from the in early March and quit working in early July. I contacted customer service by texting the Help message to their number as directed and received a call just minutes later. The would furnish a pre-paid label for me to print which I did and took it to our local post office the same day to minimize the down time as much as possible.

    I was told the camera would be repaired or replaced and to expect it within 7-10 days. It is now going on four weeks and most of my inquiries have fallen on deaf ears. The last successful attempt in communicating with them was Thursday and at that time I was told a firm eta would be furnished within 48 hours, but their best guess in the meantime was another 7-10 days.

    Well that hasn't happened, not that I expected it would. For a company that brags a 5 year warranty, 50% off retail for another camera if your camera is ever stolen, I expected much better service than has been received, and I can without hesitation recommend dealing with Browning or Stealthcam who's cameras I also own, or almost anyone other than Exodus.

    I always wondered about Exodus. Good first hand info.

    The most I have ever paid for a commercial camera, $229.00 and the worst service I have ever experienced, bar none.
    Still waiting for that within 48 hour reply, my advice would be to run away as fast as you can...don
