We are placing cameras in the field. We will post pictures and videos as they become available.
Battery Life: 55/100
Picture & Video Resting Power (on): 3.65 mW
Picture Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption: 1.28 Ws | 5.01 Ws
Video Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption: 32.27 Ws | 304.61 Ws
Battery life is efficient in picture mode but extremely inefficient in video mode.
If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, the Wildgame Mirage 16 would last 6.7 months in the field on a set of 8 AA Lithium Batteries. We consider this to be good battery life.
If this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night videos (30-second videos / this is the only length of video Wildgame allows) every 24 hours, it would last 0.7 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries. This is very poor.
Detection Circuit: 65/100
Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.48 s. / 7.4 s.
Video Trigger & Recovery Speed: 1.76 s. / 7.6 s.
Detection Range: 80 ft.
Trigger speed in picture mode is fast, but picture recovery, video trigger, and video recovery are all slow.
Detection range is 80 ft. This is an outstanding detection distance.
Quality of Design: Testing in Progress
Battery Type: 8 AA Batteries
External Battery Jack: n/a
