Default Quality Night Vision Camera

I would like to buy an affordable night vision security camera.

Been having some predator messing with my coop and despite traps, I can't figure out what it is.

I've researched them all, the best rated one appears to be this one:

However, anyone have one that is actually really quality? Examples would be awesome.

I'm not sure about the camera you posted, it looks cool. You can buy a nice motion camera at academy, gander mountain or online used for hunting a lot cheaper.

+1 on the motion camera

I guy a work with has a hunting camera set up in his backyard. It just takes still pictures and there is no night vision. It has a flash. The flash doesn't scare any animals away. Though it would probably help you if it did. The pictures are great and would definitely do the job. I swear the animals look like they are posing sometimes.

Reconyx makes the best I've ever seen. Little bit pricey though. IR, video, and stills.

Yup. Look into a "trail cam".

I'd be willing to bet you have a weasel or mink around. If that's the case there's really nothing you can do other than keep them out of the coop, even after you've ID'd one they are almost impossible to catch with baited traps.

The same thing happened to us and our neighbors. We finally got our coops mink proof by using hardware cloth instead of chicken wire and sealing up any cracks in the wood with foam sealant and steel wool (they will not chew through steel wool, no rodent will).

My neighbor also ended up running 3 hot wires around the base of the perimeter which I thought was overkill but, it worked I guess. Just make sure you read up in advance if you decide to run electric, I've heard that it is not hard to fry your whole coop one rainy night if you get it wrong.

Good luck!

I have absolutely nothing of value to add, other than that I am now looking into urban applications of night vision goggles.

+1 on the trail cam. Several good manufacturers out there, Cuddyback being one of the top. They've got infrared sensors (and IR flash) so there is no visible light flash, records date/time/temperature of each image, and produce some high quality images.
