Gardepro T5NG Review

The GardePro T5NG is a No Glow trail camera with a top-notch Sony CMOS sensor. Pictures and videos are best in class, and the flash reaches out well past 100 ft. Compared to the A3 model, improvements include a 1/2-second trigger, superior latch design, and advanced time-lapse programming. It's hard to believe this Gardepro trail camera is only $89.95. - TCP Staff

The GardePro T5NG is a No Glow trail camera with a top-notch Sony CMOS sensor. Pictures and videos are best in class, and the flash reaches out well past 100 ft. Compared to the A3 model, improvements include a 1/2-second trigger, superior latch design, and advanced time-lapse programming. It's hard to believe this camera is only $89.95. - TCP Staff.

Picture Quality:  87/100

Photo resolution:  32 mpxl (interpolated)

Video resolution:  1920x1080 (30 fps)

Video coding format:  MP4 or MOV

Flash Type:  No glow IR

Night pictures have significant flash range and illumination, sometimes in excess of 100 ft. We've noticed some white-out on animals within 20 ft, but the contrast and clarity are solid.

Day pictures have good color and clarity. We've observed a few dark photos, which may be due to shadows or the time of day. Overall, day photos from the T5NG have exceeded our expectations for a camera at this price point.

Video quality at night is simply superb. With incredible flash range and clarity, the T5NG captures some of the best night footage we've seen. Day videos are well above average, but not quite top-notch. We detected some audio inconsistencies within video footage, and have provided examples below. 

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

This is a common question and we have a simple solution. Contact us through phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to take a look at the images. This will allow us to offer suggestions and determine if something is wrong with the camera. If a problem is detected, 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:

Many people get confused with the megapixel ratings that 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 by looking at actual photos from the camera. Quality is most noticeable when zooming in on a full-size image. The details of the photo will appear hazy or even digitized. This is normal, and to be expected.

Battery Life:    98/100

Picture & Video Resting Power (on):  0.68 mW

Picture Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption: 1.2 Ws  |  1.7 Ws

Video Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption:  15.9 Ws  |  31.3 Ws

Best battery options:

Trailcampro Choice: AmpTORRENT Rechargeable AA Lithium

If the T5NG were to take 35 day photos and 35 night photos every 24 hours, this camera would last 17.8 months in the field - per charge - on a set of AmpTorrent Rechargeable AA Lithium batteries. 

If the T5NG were to take 15 day videos and 15 night videos every 24 hours, this camera would last 3.6 months in the field - per charge - on a set of AmpTorrent Rechargeable AA Lithium batteries. 

There are a number of benefits to these batteries. They provide up to 1,200 recharges with the included USB cable, have consistent 1.5 volt operation, are eco-friendly (less batteries in a landfill), and the batteries pay for themselves after two recharges.

Longest Lasting Choice: Energizer Ultimate Lithium

If the T5NG were to take 35 day photos and 35 night photos every 24 hours, this camera would last 27 months in the field on a set of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries. 

If the T5NG were to take 15 day videos and 15 night videos every 24 hours, this camera would last 5.5 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. Although we have loved these batteries for a long time, their expense has risen drastically so they are not a cost-effective option. 

Detection Circuit:     89/100

Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed:  .53 s.  |  1.7 s.

Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  .94 s.  |  2.3 s.

Detection Range & Angle: 100 ft. @ 55° detection angle (48.2°)

The T5NG exhibits some nice speed improvements over the A3, allowing it to join the middle of the pack for detection circuitry. While this is not the fastest trail camera on the market, it's easily fast enough for most setups and boasts a 100 ft. detection range. 

Quality of Design:     89/100

Dimensions: 6" x 4.5" x 3"

Battery Type:   8 AA 

External Battery Jack:  12-volt

Case Design

The case design is simple and intuitive. Improvements have been made to the latch design, making it sturdy and easier to open than older Gardepros. The weatherproof seal was also enhanced.

The camera has a tripod mount on the bottom of the case, but it does not have a mount on the bottom.

The batteries are held snuggly in a covered battery compartment inside the camera. A handy internal viewer allows for picture viewing and easy programming. 

Camera Setup

Programming is located on the internal picture viewer, and screen options are easy to read. The T5NG offers all popular settings, such as hybrid mode, photo burst, PIR sensitivity, time-lapse, and programmable start/stop time. Overall, the setup is very simple and intuitive.


We have no current concerns regarding durability, and expect the Gardepro T5NG to last 2-3 years in the field. This is a new camera, so we will keep a close eye on warranty rates and update this review if anything changes.

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 take your business, but if we are lucky enough to earn your support, we promise to give you our undivided attention. Trailcampro has grown each year by not only by relying on your happiness, but also 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, because the nanometer spectrum is above what the human eye can detect. It's also difficult 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 wow you with our incredible charm, two-year warranty, 90-day returns, free continental U.S. shipping, and technical expertise. 

Seriously, we know you have plenty of options for 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 online retailers, and we hope you give us the opportunity to prove that.

Trailcampro 90 Day Return | 2 Year Exclusive Warranty Details 

If you purchased your trail camera from us (, here are the following warranty stipulations. If you purchased from another retailer, we recommend contacting that retailer or the manufacturer of that product for their warranty details.

If You Purchase From

We attempted to make our return policy and 2-year exclusive warranty as simple as possible.  However, there are a few stipulations.

90 Day Returns

You may return or exchange anything purchased from Trailcampro for a full 90 days from the date of purchase. Please use the items as you normally would and much as you like subject to the rules below.

Our return policy lets you field test products, at no risk to you!

  • Buyer's remorse? Return the camera to us for a full refund (minus shipping).
  • Purchased the wrong camera? We will ship you the right camera.
  • Something wrong with the camera you received? We will replace it at no cost to you.

90 Day Return Policy Rules:

  • 90 days from date of purchase.
  • In order to receive a full refund, items must be returned with their original packaging (including UPC code) and all contents
  • Cameras or products must be returned in their original condition.  You cannot write on the cameras, paint them or deface them in any way.  This completely voids the warranty with both us and the specific manufacturer.
  • If you purchased one of our "Package Deals" and only return part of the package, we will refund the items full price minus the package discount.
  • Orders with quantities of 5 or more are not eligible for a refund or exchange.  They are still eligible for warranty replacement.
  • There are no returns on used cameras or cameras that clearly state "No Returns"
  • If you are returning for a refund, you are responsible for return shipping.  Your refund amount will be minus the cost of the initial shipping to you.

2 Year Warranty

We strive to make our customer experience superior to anything available.  Traditional warranties only last a year and must be processed directly through the manufacturer.  This process usually involves frustrating minutes on hold with call centers and oftentimes weeks, if not months of down time waiting for your replacement product.  We process our warranties in-house and expedite the replacement process. When you call Trailcampro you'll speak directly with an expert who will immediately identify the problem and offer a solution. 

2 Year Exclusive Warranty Details: 

  • Warranty starts from the time of purchase and continues for a full 2 years.
  • Replacement cameras receive the remainder of the 2-year warranty leftover from the original purchase.
  • Warranty is only valid for full retail priced orders (quantity discounts void our 2-year warranty). Discounted items still receive the manufacturer warranty.  Price matches void the 2-year warranty as well.  
  • If your defective camera has been discontinued, we will exchange it for a similarly priced item to your liking.  
  • If you have a 3G cellular trail camera, it is not considered manufacturer defect if you lose 3G reception in your area.
  • Used cameras do not apply for our 2-year warranty
  • Cameras cannot be marked on, damaged, or defaced in any way.  Warranty is for manufacturer defect only.  Defect does not include damage, whether intentional or not.

If you have any questions that were not answered here please feel free to contact us.

To warranty a camera please use the form below.  Upon receipt of an RMA number, you will need to ship the camera back to us.  You will be responsible for the shipping charges of the defective camera back to us.  We will ship the replacement back to you for free.
