I must have sent you this message telepathically because I was thinking the exact thing when you posted this...

I have only built trailcams using three types of cameras.

Owl PF 35mm Film camera
Sony DSC-P32 Digital
Sony DSC-P41 Digital

I havent built anything using the SD cards, which I assume would be the Olympus D3xx series.

I havent built any to sell. There are a couple guys though, that build them to sell, that I would recommend. I'll find & post the info.

That is a

"I would suggest buying a homebrew from one of the other guys"

becuase I really don't want to get into the trailcamera bidness :wink:

Its not difficult, if I can do it, anyone can.

I have built a few for bwm & a couple other friends, but only did it becuase I was building some for myself anyway. If your building one, its just as easy to build two or three at the same time.

samsung A402 takes SD cards. the flash sucks so you need a slave flash. the trigger time is 4 seconds so it's also a little on the slow side.

A freind of mine makes Swamp Ghost trail Cams and believe me they are probably the best out there.

Other folks did a comparison against Cuddeback and they were blown away.

Rains caused an overnight water rise on the testers stand site.....camearas went under.....cuddeback's were ruined, Swamp Ghost was taking pictures under water.

Little expensive but truly worth it.

Corey actually adjusts and resets the lenses of each camera used to get the best and clearest pictures availble.

I hope to get a couple from hm this year as I love the infrared on his.

I hate using a camera that has a flash.

I know folks get pics of bucks on them and kill one veery now and then, but I think a really mature old buck wont stand for flashes very much before he gets nervous.

What is you guys opinion on this?
