*This is an excellent camera in every facet. Great pictures, good videos, extremely fast, long battery life, and easy to set up. We wish this were truly no glow, but the flash is still hard to see and would still work as a security camera. Big thumbs up from us

Pros

Great pictures
One of the best detection circuits on the market

Max of 1-hour night videos
Inaccurate temperature readings

Trailcampro Analysis

The 2018 Campark trail camera has a few potential upgrades that have us pretty excited. Have two lenses, one for day shots and one for night shots, is especially interesting. Having a dedicated night lens can potentially increase nighttime photo quality significantly. Also, the upgraded video resolution could potentially put it on par with some of the top video trailcams on the market.

Picture Quality

We have been impressed with the picture quality from the trail camera. The dual lenses have made a noticeable difference on night pictures, producing more contrast and clarity. Keep in mind, this is a low glow camera and will take slightly darker night pictures/videos than the red glow counterpart. We don't see a difference in day picture quality from this trail camera to the regular trail camera. Still, day pictures are a real plus and display good color, contrast, and depth.

Daytime video is slightly improved with the move to 1080, although the clarity of the video isn't nearly as sharp as the Browning Advantage cameras. Much like the pictures, the night videos have seen an improvement in both clarity and contrast.

Overall, the trail camera displays outstanding picture and video quality.

FAQ's: Trail Camera

Q: How do I view the pictures?

A: There are a number of ways to do this. Pictures/videos are stored on the SD card you place in the camera.

  • View pictures on your computer. Plug the SD card in a desktop computer or laptop via the built-in SD card reader or use a USB reader if your computer doesn't have one. This method works for most tablets as well. With this method, we recommend having two SD cards per camera so you can swap them in the field.
  • View pictures on your smartphone. Get the iOS & Android Reader. Phone readers require an app to access the photos, you can read more about these via the previous links.
  • Trail Camera Viewers. While more expensive, handheld viewers are useful if you don't have a smartphone or run multiple trail cameras. 

Q: Will this trail camera trigger on small animals (birds, rodents, etc.)?

A: Trail cameras detect on a combination of heat and movement, so, yes, small mammals will trigger the camera. However, if you are going after smaller warm-blooded mammals, we recommend getting the camera closer to your target. For best performance, place the camera in an area that would enable picture detection from 3 - 20 ft.

Q: Can animals see the infrared flash on this camera?

A: This is somewhat controversial. Humans can't see the flash as the nanometer spectrum is above what the human eye can detect. It's also much harder for an animal to see, but that could depend on the species of animal as different species see in different light spectrums.

Q: Where can I purchase this camera?

A: From us! We hope to woo you with our incredible charm, two-year warranty, 90-day returns, free continental U.S. shipping, and technical expertise. If that isn't enough, we give you an 8 Gig SD card with this camera and you can call and talk our ear off anytime.
