Things to look out for
As we use trail cameras and have many hundreds of customers using them, we have built a wealth of knowledge on choosing the best trail camera. The main things to look out for are:

  • Resolution – Check what the actual resolution is. Try to see a sample of still and video if you can. Some cameras say they are a resolution, but in fact they use software to double the pixels.
  • Quality – Check the quality of footage. Some cameras vary in their range. It is good to see some footage if you can or read reviews.
  • Speed – Check the reaction speed. This can be crucial to what you are planning to film.
  • Sensor range – Check the width and how far the PIR will pick up motion. Some cameras have variable sensitivity setting which can be helpful when you want the camera to film in various locations.
  • Battery power – This is a difficult one to measure, but there are a lot of cameras that have longer battery life. This is important as it will allow you to film more and reduce costs. We also have a power system if you want to film or longer, please feel free to ask about this.
