is a home brew cam still a feesible item to build, or is a person better off just buying a store bought. It seems some of the sites that sell parts no longer have them, but I really like the idea of building the unit myself.
It's a great pass time but imo your not saving anything building them. Store bought cameras are getting cheaper and the picture quality is great. That being said there's something about building your own trail cameras. I was hooked once and built 4 of them. It's a great pass time during the winter.I built 3 that were kits using Bigfoot boards and Sony P41 cameras and I built one from scratch with a bigfoot control board
Like building a go cart sort of Mu'in when you were a Kid , any thing you build is usually not to hard to Fix. Once you get a little practice at soldering on smaller work they are pretty reliable. Most of the problems seem to be related to getting the soldering done right and not getting water in the Cases when it rains . You really can build a camera with out needing to be great with a soldering Iron, and the Cases are pretty good really if you pay attention to a few details when building.
