Stealth Cam Fusion-X ProTrail Camera Review

The Fusion X-Pro is a great unit at an affordable price. This Stealth Cam cellular trail camera transmits on both Verizon and AT&T and automatically picks the network with the best reception.  Additionally, the side-mounted antenna helps reduce moisture infiltration. - TCP Staff

Be Wary Of Megapixel Ratings

Megapixel ratings for trail cameras seem to increase more & more every year. In reality, the native resolution of 99% of all trail cameras is 5 megapixels or less.  Manufacturers artificially inflate megapixel ratings for advertising purposes through a process called interpolation. Interpolated photos are enhanced by software to mimic the file size of a higher megapixel photo, but seldom offer additional clarity or resolution.  The result is an exponentially larger file size photo which takes longer to load and slows down the speed of your camera.  We always program our cameras to capture photos at the image sensor's native resolution. This allows our cameras to operate as efficiently as possible and store more photos to memory.  With shorter load times,  this also allows us to review photos at a much quicker pace.  To put things in perspective, the trail camera widely considered to be the "Gold Standard" and used by more professional researchers than any other unit is just 3 megapixels.

Here are your best battery options:

Trailcampro Choice: AmpTORRENT Rechargeable AA Lithium

If this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night pictures every 24 hours, it would last 2.2 months in the field - per charge - on a set of AmpTorrent Rechargeable AA Lithium batteries. 

There are a number of benefits to these batteries:

  • Up to 1,200 charges
  • Consistent 1.5 volt operation
  • Charges with the included USB cable
  • Eco-friendly (less batteries in a landfill)
  • Batteries pay for themselves after 2-3 charges


Longest Lasting Choice: Energizer Ultimate Lithium

If the this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night pictures every 24 hours, it would last 3.3 months in the field on a set of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries. 

Ultimate Lithium batteries are the longest-lasting battery choice due to their incredible consistency and capacity. We've loved these batteries for a long time. However, in recent years they have become cost prohibitive and forced us to seek out a more affordable, eco-friendly option.

Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.23 s.  |  49.7 s.

Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.90

Quality of Design:     82/100

Dimensions: 5.5" x 3.5" x 2.75"

Battery Type:  8 AA batteries

External Battery Jack: 12-volt

SD Card: Up to 32GB


Case Design

The Fusion X Pro is similar to other Stealth Cam models. The first thing to notice is the side-mounted antenna. This design prevents moisture infiltration and prolongs life expectancy. The Fusion X-Pro has a great seal with an easy-open latch. The case design integrates 3D texturing with contrasting colors allowing it to be hidden very well, especially on a tree. 

There isn't an internal programming screen, so you will need the Stealth Cam Command app on your phone to configure the unit. This isn't our favorite method of programming, but it probably reduced manufacturing costs and ultimately saved consumers money.

Camera Setup

  • Download Stealth Cam Command app and create an account (or sign in)
  • Add device (hit + button). Access your QR code underneath the battery tray. Follow instructions to finish
  • Tap on your camera within the app and select "Camera Setup" to access settings. 


Test your camera connectivity at any time by pressing the Sync button. This snaps a test photo and instantly attempts to upload it. If your camera is connected properly you will see the photo appear in the app. Otherwise, one of the following LED codes will display:

  • Flashing green battery indicates checking camera hardware status
  • Solid green battery and flashing network indicates checking camera for internet connection
  • Solid green battery, Network and flashing account indicates checking camera for account
  • 3 Solid LEDs indicate account found and camera is successfully registered
  • All 3 LEDs will blink green to indicate photo upload in progress. LEDs will turn off to indicate camera is asleep and ready for deployment
  • Solid red battery indicates low battery or no sd card
  • Solid green battery and solid red network indicate no sim card, low signal, or no data plan
  • Solid green battery, network and solid red account indicates no account found

The smartphone app is easy to navigate and user friendly. One of our favorite cellular settings is the ability to have the camera upload instantly, but in groups of photos. So if one animal is in front of the camera for a while, it will take pictures a second or two apart and when the animal leaves, it uploads right away. 



The vast majority of consumer-grade trail cameras are inexpensive, imported devices exposed to harsh conditions 24/7/365.  Most manufacturers only offer a one-year warranty.  We stock only the most durable units and provide an additional year of warranty at no extra charge. The Trailcampro exclusive 2-year warranty allows you to deal directly with Trailcampro avoiding long wait times on hold with the manufacturer and prolonged periods without a replacement camera.  We turn around most warranties in just one business day!
