I know people prefer the Canon OWL PF, but it seems they are hard to find and fairly expensive.  If I want a camera to use in a setup that will be posted fairly close to a deer trail what can I use?  Has anyone used any of the other cams with any success?  I have searched the board and find very little info about other cams.  I was thinking about the Polaroid 230 ff.  Does anyone have any other options?

230 ff doesn't have a time stamp...still might work though?  I'd pay the little extra for the canon.....it's worth it.

I use Owl af date on my cams.I have built 4 and starting on 5 (this ones a digital). I bought all of my Owl AF's on e-bay from $8.95 for my first one to $33.50 for my highest one. If you do a search on e-bay make sure you spell canon with one "n" and two "n" some people spell it different.LOL

:smiley-thumbs-up:

dont forget the olympus infinity jr date as well. it is alot faster than the pf and it will not go to sleep . i found the pir hole has to be smaller because the cam is so much quicker than the pf.
