Moultrie White Flash Review

- This incandescent flash trail camera takes excellent pictures. The biggest downside is the below average, 3-month battery life. - TCP Staff

Model # MCG-13037 | White Flash Owner's Manual


  • Fast picture recovery
  • Excellent picture quality


  • Slow video recovery time
  • 3-month battery life on 12 AA lithium batteries

Trailcampro Analysis

The Moultrie White Flash is an incandescent game camera release in 2016. The case design looks similar to other 2016 Moultrie game cameras, but, it is different in several ways.

The Moultrie White Flash is quite a bit larger and requires 12 AA batteries instead of 8. The White Flash requires the additional batteries to charge the incandescent flash.

Picture Quality:

Photo resolution: 14 mpxl (interpolated) | Video Resolution: 1280 x 720 (no audio) | Flash Type: Incandescent

Picture quality is outstanding. Excellent color, clarity and depth on all day photos. Night pictures are well-illuminated, colorful, and clear. Picture quality is a big plus.

Battery Life:

Resting Power (on): 3.7 mW | Daytime Power Consumption: 4.98 Ws | Nighttime Power Consumption: 32.88 Ws

The obvious thing here is the high night power consumption. This is the limiting factor on battery life.

If this camera were to take 35-day pictures and 35-night pictures every 24 hour period, this camera would last 3.3 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries.

Detection Circuit:

Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.97 s. / 1.5 s. | Video Trigger & Recovery Speed: 1.64 s. / 6.9 s. | Detection Range: 60 ft.

The picture recovery is very fast. 1.5 seconds is top of the line. The trigger speed is close to one second, which is slightly below average.

Detection range is 60 ft., this is what most trailcams have detected out to this year. Overall, this is an average detection circuit.

Quality of Design:

Dimensions: 6.5" x 5.5" x 3" | Battery Type: 12 AA Batteries | External Battery Jack: 12 Volt

The camera feels sturdy and well-built in your hands. The latch works well but does have a small "catch" to it when opening (only occasionally). As we have mentioned extensively in all other 2015 & 2016 Moultrie game camera reviews, we aren't fans of the strap bracket and the way a python cable lock attaches. There is a 1/4" x 20 threaded insert on the bottom of the camera for a Slate River Mount.

Programming is a little different (like all Moultrie cameras) but after you have played with it a few times you shouldn't have a problem. The Moultrie White Flash has all the basic settings.

Durability has not been an issue but if something arises we will update the review.
