Cellular Game Cameras To Fit Any Budget

Even just a few years ago I never would have thought we would already be seeing cellular and wifi game cams priced as low as they are today.  They have dramatically dropped in price and now there are multiple cell cams available for less than $100.  

Spypoint Link Micro

The Spypoint Link Micro is the first camera I found that was reasonably priced both in terms of initial purchase price and also monthly data.  They can now be found for around $80 and they also have a free plan where you get the first 100 photos sent directly to your phone for free each month.  

Its the best cell cam on the market for anyone who is on a strict budget.  Another bonus is Spypoint’s 2 year warranty which is a big plus since its rare to come by on cameras under $100.  

Muddy Manifest

The Muddy Manifest is another great option that starts at just under $100.  Muddy’s cellular data plans start at $5 per month which means that not having a free plan is the only disadvantage versus the Link Micro.  I haven’t personally tested the Manifest yet, but plan to in the near future.  After I get a good feel for it, I will definitely write up a review and comparison and may need to perform a head to head test.  One disadvantage is that it only has a 1 year warranty when the other options have a 2 year warranty.

Moultrie Mobile Delta Base Cam

 

The Moultrie Mobile is yet another cell cam that is under $100.  Moultries data transmission plan is more expensive though, starting at $10 per month for 1,000 images and ten videos.  Well, I guess the price for 1,000 images is the same, however not having a lower plan is what it makes it higher than first two options we checked out.  It does come with a two year warranty as well which is better than the Muddy Manifest.  

Conclusion

Feature wise, all of these cameras come with very similar features.  A couple of the things that set them apart are the warranty and monthly data plan cost.  My favorite is the Link Micro due to its free plan and 2 year warranty.  The Muddy Manifest is a close second.  And the Moultrie comes in third since it has the most expensive base data plan, which starts at $10 per month.
