hey i want to try to build my own trail camera. i have downloaded a ton of info! read a even more, but when i go looking for the cameras at wall-mart ,target, and kmart all the ones on the web pages were not there. there were a bunch of cannon sureshot but no owl there were others as well that were close but not the exact ones on the web page. is there a camera that they still sell that i could just go buy or do i need to go to ebay and wait a week to get a camera. i would like to start asap. also is there a digital camera for under a 100.00 bucks that works?
thanks mike http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/stimpy--sm-ani.gif

Best bet to buy a Canon Owl now, is to go to Sears and pay the extra $5.00. If they don't have one in stock, they can order it in -- 49.99 here in VA.

I get the OWL PF through amazon.com for 49.99 they arrive in 4-5 bus days.

I bought my olympus digital off of ebay. I just watched for auctions that were ending quick. They also have the buy now feature on some of them that if you agree to the preset price it ends the auction and you get it for that price. As with anything online, you have to look at the shipping cost before you bid. The one I bought was the D370. Paid $130 with shipping, but it came with a 32 MB smart media which to buy at wally world cost $40 by itself. I didnt mind buying online and waiting, beacause I ordered brians board, and a pelican case. I had to wait for those to be delivered anyway. I posted and am waiting on replies about an olypus digital at radio shack onsale for $99. I believe it is the same as the D370 but just a different case. Waiting to see if anyone here knows.

It appears to Date Time on the image and a fill flash function, but takes a 3 volt supply. you can compare to the D-380 here
