With so many options on the market, picking the right game camera can be tough.  They come with a variety of features and all perform differently.  Here at Trailcampro.com, we test and evaluate all current game cameras and rank them based on our in-house testing.  Cameras are tested for battery life, trigger speed, recovery time, detection distance, and much more.  Take a look at our highest-rated game cameras on the market right now.

 

 1. Browning Strike Force Pro XD

  • The Browning Strike Force Pro XDgame camera includes dual-lens technology.  Having a dedicated lens for day and night on your game camera gives you some great night and day photos.  Below are some of the specs for the Browning Strike Force Pro XD

  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.73 s.  |  1.9 s.
  • Detection Range & Angle:  90 ft. | 41.7° (41.8° F.O.V.)
  • Battery Life: If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, the Strike Force HD Pro XD would last 10.3 months in the field on a set of 6 AA Lithium Batteries. We consider this to be outstanding, especially considering the camera only uses 6 batteries.

 

2.  Browning Strike Force HD Pro X

3. Browning Dark Ops HD Pro X

  • The Browning Dark Ops HD Pro X is a great game for scouting game or using for security.   Much like the Strike Force HD Pro X this game camera is good for all-around use.  The Low-Glow IR's make the Browning Dark Ops HD Pro X a good choice for security as well.  Below are some key test features from this game camera.

  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.53 s.  |  1.9 s.
  • Detection Range & Angle: 90 ft. @ 41.3° detection angle (43.1°field of view)

  • The Bushnell Core DS No Glow game camera is a great option if you are looking for a low glow game camera.  Excellent battery life, photos, and video quality make this a great game camera choice.  Below are some results from our testing.

 5. Spypoint Force Dark:

  • The Spypoint Force Dark Game camera gets some of the best battery life we have ever seen.  This game camera has a lightning-fast trigger and recovery time so you won't be missing any action.  The photo quality isn't going to be the best but if you are looking for a fast game camera with great battery life the Spypoint Force Dark is the way to go. 
  •  Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.07 s.  |  0.3 s.
  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.71 s.  |  1.0 s.
  • Detection Range & Angle: 120 ft. @ 39.7° Detection Angle (42° field of view)
  • Battery Life: If this camera were to take 35-day pictures and 35-night pictures every 24 hour period, this camera would last 36 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries. Phenomenal.

 

 6. Spypoint Solar Dark

  • The Spypoint Solar Dark game camera has a built-in solar panel that keeps an internal battery charged up.  You will also place 8AA lithium batteries in the camera for backup.  Battery life cannot be calculated accurately.  We have seen cases of this camera being outside for years without ever changing the batteries.  Along with a fast trigger and recovery time, this is a great choice for a game camera.  
  • Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.07 s.  |  0.3 s.
  • Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.07 s.  |  0.3 s.
  • Detection Range & Angle: 120' @ 38.5° Detection Angle  (42.0° Field of View)

  • If you are looking for the most durable game camera on the market the Reconyx Hyperfire 2 is the one for you.  Reconyx game cameras can be repaired and hold up well in harsh conditions.  Battery life is excellent and the photo quality is some of the best we have seen.

  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.24 s. / 4.6 s.
  • Detection Range:  80 ft. (maximum)
  • Battery Life: If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, the Hyperfire 2 would last 16.6* months in the field on a set of 12 AA Lithium

 

 8. Browning Spec Ops Edge

  • The Browning Spec Ops Edge game camera's review is still in progress.  However, we have sold many of these cameras and have had good feedback.  The Browning Spec Ops Edge takes some of the best videos out of any game camera we have seen.  If video is your main goal then the Browning Spec Ops Edge is a great camera to choose.  
  • Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.02 s.  |  0.8 s.
  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.39 s.  |  0.6 s.
  • Detection Range & Angle: 90 ft. @ 59.8° detection angle (@37.3 ° field of view)
  • Battery Life: If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, the Spec Ops Advantage would last 27.3 months in the field on a set of 8 AA Lithium Batteries. For a no glow trail camera using 8 batteries, we consider this to be elite.

 

 9. Browning Recon Force Edge:

  • The Browning Recon Force Edge game camera is much like the Spec Ops Edge.  However, it is a red glow trail camera.  When it takes a photo or video at night it will emit a very faint red glow typically giving you better night photos and videos.  This game camera takes some of the best videos we have seen.  Along with some of the best battery life on the market.
  • Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.02 s.  |  0.6 s.
  • Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.38 s.  |  0.6 s.

 10.  Bushnell Core DS Low Glow

  • The Bushnell Core DS Low Glowgame camera comes with 2 lenses one for day and one for the night.  The dual-lens technology helps for a much better day and night photo.  This is a great camera if you are looking to do photos or videos.

The Browning Spec Ops Edge (BTC-8E) does not work with the past Security Box that worked for the last 4 Browning Spec Ops Cameras. The 2020 Spec Ops Edge is a different Size Case Design so instead you will have to purchase another Security Box that does and toss what you have as soon as the 4 older Spec Ops Models Run Out and some are getting hard to find as to these older models, just a Buyer Beware you will need a different Security Box if you get a 2020 Spec Ops Edge!
