Several years ago I was in your boat about getting a camera and bought a Cuddeback Capture on a friend's recommendation, it didn't even make a full deer season. I'm not saying they are all bad just 'cause I happened to get a lemon, but Tator steered me to a Moultrie M80, a new model, and I love this little cam. Talk to him and GF Deputy, between those two guys they've got more than several Moultrie cams. I bought mine from a lady on Ebay for $100 shipped to my doorstep. If they don't respond to your post here just send them a personal message, I'm sure they both would be happy to help.

Never bought a cuddyback but have heard good & bad things about them
I can say my D55Irs by Moutrie have beeen great it has been out since last March & have had almost no issues only problem I had is when it gets really cold like 0 degrees & under sometimes it does not reconize the Sd card but I usually don't leave them out to longer after hunting season ends but I wanted to really stess the camera to see what it will take battery life is awsome changed batteries once since it has been out & second set still at just under 50% daytime pics are very nice & crisp
night time could be better but still good ( little grainy ) my opinion for the price of the Moutries you cant beat them DO NOT buy any wildgame innovations cammeras you will be sorry

here are a couple pics from one of my cameras

We've never had a cuddeback but we've got a few Moultrie m80s and they are wonderful little cameras.

D55IR are as low as $70.00 on Ebay M80 are as low as $110 both are new, Buy it now & free shipping
I have both Ir & Flash I prefer IR but have not seemed to spook deer with the flash either

No they can not switch back & fourth there are two models of the D55 one is flash the other is the D55IR inferred
inferred is still considered the flash
