Default Game Camera Recommendations?

Im pretty new to game cameras. Ive been using a pretty old one and its finicky. Im tired of fighting it. Does anybody have any recommendations?

What is the best Camera out there? Im looking for the following features:
-user friendly (read this as easy to operate)
-good quality pics
-Video option?
-under $200

is there a significant upgrade if i spend an additional $100 or $200? can i have pics sent to my email or phone? I assume that requires a data plan and cell coverage?

Thanks in advance!

Of the 4 brands I’ve tried, moultre have given me the best service. That’s all I buy now and they are the cheapest. I don’t have any Experience with the ones that automatically send you pictures, So Im of no help to you there.

I'm a fan of the Browning Strikeforce. I just bought another on black friday for $99. Academy often has them on sale.

I have always had good luck with moultrie's. Browning's are great too! Whatever you do, don't buy a WGI camera or WGI anything for that matter!

Go to trailcampro.com and check out their reviews of current models. They have good deals with extra warranty, free SD cards and free shipping.

Everyone always votes Browning strikeforce. I've never used them but I've had good luck with stealthcam.

I have had good luck with Moultrie.
I have 4 that have been in the woods since the day I bought them 4 years ago.

like on all the other threads you're going to get tons of recommendations for Browning Strikeforce.

I use Covert MP8s. They meet all your criteria and it doesn't miss as many pics as the Browning Strikeforce.

I've had great luck with Bushnell 8mp Trophy cams, but I think I'm about to buy one of these to try out:
