Best trail camera for $300???

Hey guys. I'm looking for a new trail camera. My first was a Wildview. Very inexpensive, and it lasted for about a year before it completely quit on me. I bought my second, a StealthCam. It still works although some parts on it broke, and it no longer takes night shots.
I am now looking for a new one. My limit to spend is $300. I know there are more expensive ones, but if I spend $600 on a camera, then I am going to buy a new lens for my DSLR.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    I can understand. Like I mentioned in my above post, mine did the same thing. It worked good for about a year, then quit taking night pics. Sorry to hear for your loss. I will not be buying another StealthCam though.

    Ok, so after much research on the net I decided to go with the Bushnell. I will have to let everyone know how it does once I get it set up.

    I looked hard at that one. I went with the Bushnell (Trophy Pro) because of the price, recovery time, wide range, IR, and claimed "up to one year" of battery life on 8AA batteries. I used to get tired of putting all the "C" batteries in my other ones. I will have to post some pics as soon as I get the camera set up. Thanks for the information.

    her's uses 6 d cell we ran it for three months and never changed them
    i really like the fact that our digital cameras and her trail camera use teh same memory card just go in swap it out and get out
    we can view the pics on the camera while sitting in the stand
