Depends on what you are looking for. I have done fine with cheaper models. Might not be high quality photos, but you can tell what is in the woods. That is all I am looking for. I do feel that something that is compatible with a solar charger saves money in the end. Those D-cells get expensive after a while.

I have not had a single problem with a moultrie camera. It cost me $100 at the time and now I think it's $80. I had one set of batteries last me three years and I am very happy with the picture quality. Easy to use, quick set up, no complaints. I'll post a few pictures soon for you to see. Good luck!
I don't know the shutter speeds on the Moultries or the others mentioned but I own a Leaf River, one of the older ones (5 years) It takes great pictures but it wasnt until us kids bought my Dad a cuddeback for christmas one year that I realized what I was missing. I set my camera up in the tree next to Dad's cuddeback and I missed a ratio of 3 out of 5 deer that he got on the CUddeback and there was no sign on my camera. . My next camera will be a Cuddeback.
For $100 you may be better off looking for a good used one. You may have trouble finding a decent new one for that price.
I built two trailcams using Sony digital cameras and they work great, but with white flash. I also bought a HCO ScoutGard HC550 that has been great. It will run for weeks or more on 8 AA batteries, takes pics or video day or night, uses red IR at night and is very small. I have a friend that bought several of them and he is pleased as well.
Just remember that a lot of your success with a trailcam is as much about your setup as it is about the camera. Cams with long sensing can be set up to look down a trail and still get the pics you desire.
