I'm not sure if this has been discussed here before or not, but I figued it might help some folks toying with the idea of building a Video deer cam.

Since I'm cheap (or thrifty as some call it
) I was pondering the idea of purchasing a broken Sony trv65 w/nightshot for a deer cam. It was in mint condition, perfect cosmetics, and would power on. Even the LCD would come on, but it wouldn't record or play. I figured I would send it in for repair and maybe only have a $100 or so in a good working cam. I could have bought it for $35.

I took a look at Sony.com and saw that v-cams that age will fall into a "Flat-rate" repair pricing schedule. A $250 flat rate to repair it
. After reading that, I think I'll pass on that idea. It sounded good though ....
