Customer Reviews

Customers are loving this amazing trail cam as some don’t even use them for hunting purposes, but rather the monitoring of the wildlife in the area. One customer said that the photos and videos are beautifully clear, although the quality changes based on the time of day and conditions of the area the camera is in.

​Another customer mentioned that the setup of the camera was so easy a toddler could probably do it without batting an eye. And another enjoyed the quality of both the video and the sound that he was able to get from a camera within the price range.

Although many customers love this camera, other customers weren’t as happy about it. One stated that the camera did not come with an SD card and that many of the cards that were tried didn’t work - You can our Q&A here to get more info for this model before buying.​

Another customer said that they were getting numerous false triggers and have had problems with it triggering properly. Some even had problems with the batteries coming loose causing the camera to shut down and have to be reset again. Another customer said that while everything works perfectly except that it triggers due to movement at 15 feet rather than movement further away.​

He also had a problem with it only catching 2 things within a 24 hour period, the customer walking away from the camera after setting it up and walking towards it to retrieve the memory card. So far I never had any issues with this model, but if you're a first time buyer, then this model would be essentials swiss army for you.​
