I have followed the thread regarding the Elph Camera.  I noticed in the paper today and HP camera with 1.3m pixels for $149.

I was wondering if anyone has made a trail camera using a digital cheaper than the Elph which was like $300 when I last checked.

Hi cg,
I think Brian is the only one so far with the guts to hack a digital cam - even at 150$ it's still a good amount of change to lose if you fry the cam.
There are so many digital cams on the market it's hard to pick one to start fiddling with.  From a small amount of poking around inside a few different digitals, I've found that some are really tightly packed inside and would be hard to modify.
You'll also need some fairly complex timing circuits to switch the camera - fortunately Brian posted some schematics a while back.

Good Luck,
Archilochus

 Not to mention,if one walks off by itself it would REALLY leave you feeling defiled and used.
 It would be nice to just load pics to PC and get rid of film developer.
