Great Question From a Reader

by Nick Hartman May 25, 2017 2 min read

Gregg asked a question about the 2017 Trailcam Shootout on the previous blog post that I thought everyone may want to see the answer to. Here it is...

Question: That’s so awesome to see. I refer people to your site all of the time because I implicitly trust your rigorous unbiased testing. I have to ask though, are there any models that you’re anxious to see results from?

Here are my thoughts...
I always go into these tests expecting certain results from certain models. There is always a surprise, though, so I'm most excited to see what camera or brand surprised this year.

The test was completed yesterday but I haven't seen the official scores. 

Other than that, here's what my expectations are by brand...

Browning: I expect high-efficiency ratings but middle of the road overall scores. Their detection width is less than the field of view so they will pick up some pictures but not as many as the top scoring cameras.

Bushnell: I expect them to sweep the podium. Extremely fast and they always detect a mile.

Covert: I expect their recovery time to keep them from having high scores.

Cuddeback: No expectations

HCO: I expect low scores

Moultrie: Kind of curious to this one. I'd expect middle of the road but this could be a darkhorse?

Primos: Low expectations? Maybe not, though, their cameras are quite fast these days...

Reconyx: I expect great detection out to 60 ft. Middle of the road overall scores which is honestly quite disappointing.

Spypoint: Very high expectations. Most interested in detection range though, I know they are fast, just want to see how far they detect.

Stealth: Middle of the road scores?

Wildgame: Slow recovery times would theoretically produce one picture per pass. So best case would be consistent photo and long ranges, but won't be fast enough to score highly.
