Shawn; You will soon make the journey over to join the addiction. I started out with a 35mm, then I looked at the moultrie and wound up with a stealth digital. Now I am getting ready to build my own. Faster shutters, better flashes etc.. I have bought several cameras off e-bay in preperation to start the building. Good luck and post some pictures.
Real Deal Hunting Chat is an awesome place for info on building cameras. Basically for between 200 to 300 you can build a camera that Cabelas sells ranging from 400 to 700. Great group of folks who are willing to share their knowledge. Plus you get the satisfaction of taking pictures with a camera you built yourself.
