Top 5 Trail Cams under $100

You don’t have to spend a fortune to monitor all those special hunting spots on your properties. At MidwayUSA, we have the best deals on trail cameras so you can scout without breaking the bank. Here is a quick guide on trail camera selection, along with our top 5 trail cameras under $100!

Image & Video Quality

Photo and image quality can be a major factor in your camera choice. While most cameras offer adequate photo quality, most trail cam users prefer higher-megapixel cameras. Models like the Moultrie Micro 42i offer 42MP resolution for under the $100 dollar mark!

Trigger Speed

Having a camera with the right trigger speed for your needs is essential for quality images. If your camera is over a food plot or mineral site, you may be able to save some money and get away with a slower-triggering camera. If you plan to put your camera over a trail, it is essential to use a camera with fast trigger speeds to ensure you get the pictures you need.

Cellular Compatibility

Receive pictures at home, at work, or from the stand with a cellular trail camera! We offer several brands of cellular cameras, like Muddy, Moultrie, and Spypoint, for under $100 dollars.

Camera Settings

Different game cameras will offer different camera settings. Look out for things like video compatibility, flash type, and multi-shot modes to get the results you want when you pull SD cards.

What Customers Are Saying

Solid Trail Cam, Easy to Use.

The camera takes excellent images. I liked the features and flexibility of the settings. Motion detection and capture is reliable (unlike the Arlo cameras I have). These two cameras were purchased in May 2020. Cameras were checked about every 2 weeks on average, with between 15 and 8,000+ images (yep, watch that sensitivity if there are ANY leaves that will move with the wind!) Batteries in one camera lasted for 5 months, the other is still on the first set. Stills and videos were taken of animals, people in orchard and open space, and vehicles at entry gate. One thing I was disappointed about: "Time Lapse....Yes" does not mean time lapse video, but that the cam captures may stills at the interval you set. The only failure: battery/control access door. The catch on one of the cameras broke after 5 months. I am currently communicating with the manufacturer for repair or replacement. It seems to be going smoothly.

Decent camera if used correctly and good quality images

2 down-sides .. doesn't come with an SD card and if the camera is close to the ground the images wash out at night .. meaning a bright reflection that removes the detail of the image. Otherwise for the price it is a great camera. I might add that it is a bit more complicated to setup compared to the older models which I also have.
