    Please say more on the purpose of the purchase. What image quality you are after?

    I would look at something like an IR converted DSLR with Magic Lantern on it.

    Don't think you'll find any at 10-15 megapixals......I use a couple of Bushnell HD Trail Cams which are very good and use black LED technology which are completely invisible to the naked eye at night. see HERE but these only come in at 8mp, there are some images in my p/f taken in the pitch blackness of night if you wish to see the output quality is like. 8mp is pretty much industry standard for these kind of cameras and I don't know of any others that offer a larger resolution.

    If your sure your current camera kit will be safe to be left alone without the risk of theft or damage to the elements you could use an infra-red trigger/trap system wired up to a DSLR. I have one which I use occasionally, I use mine more for high speed imagery of birds in flight etc. But this is only of any real use during daylight hours because of the limitations of the camera, a Canon 50D.
