We are placing cameras in the field and will post pictures when we retrieve 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.


Night IR Blur Test

The equipment for the test consists of a target moving along a track from left to right at a constant speed controlled by a stepper motor and a sensor to trigger the capture of a picture near the center of the field of view of a trail camera. 

The target is moving at 1.25 feet per second and is 10 feet from the camera at the center of field of view.  The test is conducted in a dark room.   Two pictures are taken, one with the target not moving and one with the target in motion.  A visual comparison can now be made of the two pictures.  All settings that affect the quality of night photos will be tested.

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:    95/100

Picture & Video Resting Power (on): 1.63 mW

Picture Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption:   3.0 Ws  |   22.4 Ws

  • Video Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption:   3.0 Ws  |   44.6 Ws
  • Picture Mode

    If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, this camera would last 12.4 months in the field on a set of 8 AA Lithium Batteries. We consider this to be outstanding, especially considering the camera only uses 6 batteries.

    Video Mode

    If this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night videos (10-second videos) every 24 hours, it would last 3.1 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries.


    Detection Circuit:     in progress

    Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed:  0.34 s.  |   1.0 s. 

    Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:   0.83 s.  |   1.9 s.

    Detection Range & Angle: n/a @ 47.7° detection angle (41.3° field of view)

    Trigger speed and recovery time are bot really fast in picture mode. It slows a bit in video mode, which is to be expected, but still very solid.

    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.
