When your shopping you have to keep in mind the area you are trying to capture. You wont have a zoom. so be sure the area is close to the camera. More megapixels the better. Be sure its ONLY equipped with IR flash or your thieves will now have your new camera to add the the stash of stuff they have taken from you. I would suggest a choke point if possible to help direct them towards a particular area and place the camera near that location. Good luck

IR flash is a must, if you have wireless in your shop get a eyefi memory card to go into the camera, then create a photobucket account for the card. When the cam takes a picture it will down load it to photobucket. I have one set up like this and it works great.

Mine are just cabelas, don't know the brand... they take 4d batteries... I am told that the ones that take 8 AA's batteries seem have a better battery life..

If you can, don't mount them on the shop walls, but mount them on post or trees so they face the shop. That way a passing car isn't going to set them off every 5 seconds. The one thing to look at is the "trigger time" for the first shot... Some are delayed up to 5 seconds which might be too long to catch someone doing a quick grab and run.

Your best bet for what you're looking for would be black flash camera bc even with an IR camera the diodes still light up red which could lead to a stolen or smashed camera. Black flash does not light up at all. Another important factor is trigger speed, slow trigger means no clear n visible pics. Some of the better brands are Cuddeback-1/4 second trigger, Eyecon-1/3 second trigger, n Moultrie-1 second or less. Prices can range between $170-250 and like most things ya get what ya pay for so my advice don't go cheap. Good luck.
