I saw on Ebay that there are 2 Olympus Infinity Jr.s for sale for $15-20.00. Are they okay to use or should I spend another $20-$30 bucks for the Cannon. I read on Jesse's page that they are okay. Just want to make sure before I bid.

Hi Scott,
Sure, I'd say it's one of the better choices - assuming the cam works properly.  When these cams were new models, I made 110 trail-cams out of them for a research project.  They suffered about 15% loss due to the film motor drive gear stripping out.  This happened very soon after the cams were put in the field, and any cameras that survived the first month continued to work fine.  Since any Infinity Jr you come across has been used for several years, it's probably one of the good ones.

Good Luck!,
Archilochus
