We are placing cameras in the field and will post samples when we get them.

What if you purchase from us and aren't happy with the image quality?

This is a common question and we have a very simple solution. Call, email, or chat with us and we can take a look at the images and offer suggestions or immediately tell if something is wrong with the camera. If so, we will warranty the camera for you (with the free 2-Year warranty you receive from us) or return the camera for a full refund (within 90 days of purchase). You have control of the process, remember, we work for you.

Megapixel Ratings:

In the past, many people get confused with the megapixel rating trail camera manufacturers advertise.  Companies inflate the mpxl rating to attract eyes to their products.  They do this through interpolation, which digitally adds megapixels to a photo without actually improving the picture.

The best way to judge picture quality is to look at actual pictures.  You will notice this the most when you zoom in on a full-size image that a camera has taken.  The details of the photo will appear hazy or even digitized.  This is normal, and to be expected.

Battery Life:    90/100

Picture & Video Resting Power (on):   0.61 mW

Picture Mode

If this camera were to take 35 day and 35 night pictures every 24 hours, it would last 11.4 months in the field on a set of Lithium batteries.

Video Mode

If this camera were to take 15 day and 15 night videos every 24 hours, it would last 3 months in the field on a set of Lithium batteries.

Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:    2.71 s.  |  3.6 s.

Quality of Design:     82/100

Dimensions: 4" x 4 1/2" x 2 3/4"

Battery Type:  6AA

External Battery Jack:12V

Case Design

The Lumen is a very small trail camera, about the size of your palm. It has an adjustable metal bracket on the back that swivels up and down along with a small latch to open the front of the case. The battery tray slides out the bottom but doesn't have a very positive click when going back in. Other than that, everything feels solid and well-built. 

Camera Setup

The camera has an internal viewing screen that helps with set up and picture/video playback. The control buttons are rather small and might be a problem for the larger fingers. Other than that, set up is extremely easy and intuitive. Just make sure you remember to select "arm camera" when you turn the camera on in the woods. We forgot once and it cost us a few weeks of pictures!

Durability

We currently don't have any durability concerns, if that changes we will update this review.

Keep in mind, our 2-year warranty program is your free insurance program in case something goes wrong with a camera you purchase from us. This warranty protects you from any manufacturing defect the camera might experience for two years.

 

Since 2005, our mission has to been to provide consumers with unbeatable value, advice you can trust, and customer service that exceeds expectations. There are plenty of places you can choose to do business with, if we are lucky enough to earn your support, we promise to give you our undivided attention. Trailcampro has grown each year not only by relying on your happiness but on the assumption that if we blow you away with customer service, you will brag about us to your friends (have you seen our referral/reward program?).

As always, if you have additional questions, feel free to call, email or chat with us. We look forward to helping you find your next trail camera!

FAQ's: Trail Camera

Q: Will this trail camera trigger on small animals (birds, rodents, etc.)?

A: Trail cameras detect on a combination of heat and movement, so, yes, small mammals will trigger the camera. However, if you are going after smaller warm-blooded mammals, we recommend getting the camera closer to your target. For best performance, place the camera in an area that would enable picture detection from 3 - 20 ft.

Q: Can animals see the infrared flash on this camera?

A: This is somewhat controversial. Humans can't see the flash as the nanometer spectrum is above what the human eye can detect. It's also much harder for an animal to see, but that could depend on the species of animal as different species see in different light spectrums.

Q: Where can I purchase this camera?

A: From us! We hope to woo you with our incredible charm, two-year warranty, 90-day returns, free continental U.S. shipping, and technical expertise. If that isn't enough, we give you a 16 Gig SD card with this camera and you can call and talk our ear off anytime. 

Seriously, though, we know you have plenty of options of where to spend your hard-earned money. The internet can be the wild, wild, west of too-good-to-be-true deals. If you choose to do business with us, we will go out of our way to make sure you are happy with the camera you select and the service we provide you.

We are passionate about testing and reviewing trail cameras, but most importantly, we are passionate about treating our customers the right way. We do things differently from what you have come to expect from other internet retailers and we hope you give us the opportunity to prove that to you.
