This week has seen the Bushnell Trophy Cam in use on the BBC one program Lost Land of the Tigers. The small size and quick response time of the camera traps made them an ideal choice. I was pleasantly surprised at the results of the quality of video achieved given that the camera is only giving a video image of 640×480 at 20 FPS. Even on the bigger screen of a TV the results although not pin sharp like some other camera traps may be (Stealth Cam Prowler HD – Video) they certainly achieved a very good level of detail, showing impressive images of the illusive wildlife. Interest in the camera has certainly been high since the airing of the program and we have been lucky to keep up with stock of the standard non viewer version which sells at £210. The Viewer version was available from stock in small quantities before the show was on, these were quickly exhausted with more on the way in the first weeks of October. Any advance orders of the viewer version will be rewarded with a complementary 4GB SD Card.
If you have any questions with regard to using camera traps please contact me.
Last night (25th April) the Stealthcam IR cameras were featured on the BBC Country file program (about 29 minutes in). It was a useful feature showing the type of images that can be gained from these sort of covert IR cameras. It was a little unfortunate that they chose the Stealcam’s as a brand due to their scarcity in terms of stock. If you are looking at finding out what is prowling around in the garden at night or even the day for that mater, then an easier alternative to get your hand on is the Stealthcam range would be the latest models from Spypoint; The range consists of four cameras ranging from true 6 mega pixel up to 12 mega pixel they offer a fast response time (between activation and images being taken). Another newcomer to the market would be the Bushnell Trophy camera which offers 8 mega pixel resolution and is smaller than most other cameras on the market. If you need to know more or want to discuss technical details…give me a call.
