As a rule, I attach the trail cam to a tree or existing post and passing wildlife tends to ignore it.

However, last night I fixed the camera to a stake and placed it in the middle of the lawn quite a way from the house where Badgers, in particular, enter and leave.

It seems to have piqued the curiosity of this one...

Is it possible that precautions were taken to prevent damage to the thin leading edge rather than from it?

YOU HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THOSE F104 BADGERS!!

The Edit feature also allows you to delete a post. You can give a reason for deletion too if you want. It's nice; because, only registered users logged-in will see where a post has been deleted. It won't be visible to the general public. You're lurking fans will never know and you won't be a litter bug.

That's a great shot. I wonder if I should look into a trail camera...

I bought mine from Amazon just over a year ago for 60 ($75) but prices seem to have come down by about 15%.

They are marketed under several different brand names but all seem very similar; badge engineered as it were.

Given the wide variety of wildlife you are lucky to have, I think that you'd find it a rewarding investment.

Just out of interest, have the tariffs on Chinese imports started to bite yet?

An early decision to buy might well pay off!

It looks like they start around $40 American. Which features matter?

No, the flash will blind you.

Actually yes. They are cheap, reliable and easy to use.
Mine is a C Cell glutton, so think about rechargeable batteries.

Definition and range. Common specs are 12MP and 1080p.

You can drop the definition right down in steps on mine which is helpful if you wish to conserve battery power but at the bottom end of the scale it's more for gathering evidence of what might be raiding your vegetable patch overnight than serious observation.

Range on mine is said to be up to 65ft and I've no reason to dispute that, in fact it might be a little more.

As mentioned earlier, most examples seem to be 'badge engineered' and will have the ability to vary sensitivity and the number of photos taken at a particular activation.

I tend to keep my camera set on the highest definition and sensitivity which can result in excess of a hundred photos overnight.

If you can place the camera in a convenient position vis a vis a mains electricity supply, it might be worth your while buying a plug in power unit.

Check to see if your chosen model has the necessary socket before you commit $ to the ether.

That's all I can think of at the minute but please feel free to ask if there's anything else I can help you with.


BTW The manual, as is to be expected, is a bit of a puzzle but operating the unit is pretty much intuitive.

One more thing. You'll probably have to buy a memory card separately.
