How does it work?
A trail camera is the number one bit of kit to record all forms of wildlife, in your garden or a more remote location. You simply take it out of the box, turn it on and hang it point at an animal trail or feeding station. Leave the camera alone to record. When something passes the camera, the camera sensor will detect the movement and record a clip of video or stills for a period of time and write it to the video card. You then can return back to the camera to either retrieve the card or move the camera to another location. To view the footage, you can either plug the camera into your PC or remove the card and place it into a card reader.

The offer is cracking offer and does not include the card.
How does the camera work?
The camera is a digital camera, motion detection device and video recorded rolled into one.
What can the camera film?
The camera can film anything from small animals upwards. If it is smaller, you will have to place the camera closer to the subject. If it is larger, you can place the camera further away. The bigger the surface area on the sensor, the easier the camera will detect motion and record to the camera.
Where can you place the camera?
The camera can be placed anywhere. The camera comes with a strap and buckle and can easily be strapped to anything.
Does the camera flash and will this give the location of the camera away or scare the subject?
No, the camera has a sensor and if it is dark, the camera will turn on invisible infra-red lights. This does not flash and does not give anything away.
Can I see the pictures or video on the camera?
Yes, the camera has a small colour screen on the back and it is easy to see the live footage through the camera as well as the shots and video taken.
How easy is the camera to use?
It is very easy to use as it has a small colour screen and easy to use buttons and menu system. Like all gadgets, there is an element of learning however with a bit of experimentation you will get there.
Why is the camera a lot cheaper than others?
The camera is made by a new and developing technology company. It is a lesser known brand than others in the marketplace, however the technology is comparable as other brands.
What trail camera should I buy?
This depends on what you are planning to film and what quality and features are needed. First, think about the subject you want film. This will determine what camera you should get. Once you know roughly what you are going to film you can then look at features. If you are unsure or going to film many things, look for a camera with several features. Things to consider:
- Quality and price
- Trigger speed
- Trigger distance and IR distance
- Extra features like a playback screen etc.
What is interpolated resolution?
All trail cameras consist of a light sensitive chip that records the footage (photo/video) at a certain resolution. Many of today’s cameras have actual resolution and enhanced or interpolated resolution. This means software processes the picture and doubles the resolution allowing the images or videos to be enlarged. To be honest most cameras have this feature as standard. Anything that is 5MP actual or 12MP interpolated is good. The higher the better.
What is an IR filter pass?
In natural daylight there is Infra-red. This is a higher part of the visual spectrum and is normally blocked out by our eyes. By blocking the natural IR light, colours during the day are a lot richer. As trail cameras can see Infra-red at night, the cameras need a way to block natural IR during the day. An IR filter pass is a filter that naturally moves across the lens to allow richer more colourful footage. When it comes to night-time the filter automatically moves away. Most trail cameras have this feature.
