What is a trail camera? A trail camera, or game camera as it’s referred to by certain manufacturers, is a ruggedly designed camera especially for use outdoors. Primarily used by either wildlife photographers or hunters to facilitate the hunt and by making the location of wildlife that much easier.
Bushnell Core Dual Sensor No Glow 30 Megapixel Trail Camera
- High quality images day or night– Dual Sensors (DS) for sharper, richer daytime images and higher contrast, more detailed images at night
- 24 meter night range– High contrast nighttime images with no washout
- Weatherproof and rugged– Built to withstand the heat, cold, teeth and claws that Mother Nature throws at it.
- No Glow– Nearly invisible to the human eye, no light emitted while capturing photos and video making it great for wildlife and security uses.
Most trail cameras use only one image sensor to capture images 24 hours a day. So you settle for daytime images that are less sharp and rich, and nighttime images that lack consistent illumination and range. CORE Dual Sensor (DS) Technology gives you two image sensors one optimized for more sharp and rich images during the day and another optimized for images with consistent and further illumination at night. Whether you’re hunting from a ground blind or a deer stand you can plot their movements more reliably and plan your hunts more strategically.
Useful installation pointers
Listed below are some useful pointers on how to use your trail camera to get the best results:
- Mount the camera about 1.5~2 m high with the camera pointed at a slight downward angle
- Mount the trail camera facing north or south, not east or west, as the rising and setting of the sun could produce false triggers and overexposed images
- If you’re covering a trail, face the camera down or up the trail
- Clear out any brush or weeds in front of the trail camera. These can cause false triggers due to temperature and motions disturbances in front of the camera (especially on windy days).
- Check the power level of the batteries
- Make sure the memory card is properly inserted and have sufficient available space
- Verify time and date are correct.
- Make sure to turn the camera ON before you leave (switch in the ON position).
