I"ve had four different brands of "game" cameras. So far, the best luck was Moultrie m100, but they no longer make it.
I just ordered a newer version. I do have the "blackout" IR version. I think the Moultrie(s) are all nearly 4 years old, out in the weather, Minnesota has some extremes, and they cameras are still going strong.
I do not use the tree strap, I make customized mounts so as not to tip my hand to the "deer".
