Buying Guide for Best Rated Trail Cameras

Updated June 28, 2020 

SPYPOINT Link-MicroThese days people seem to be getting busier and busier. People are having difficulty finding time for leisure activities including hunting. Many hunters might only be able to head out into the woods for just a couple days a year. So when they head off to their deer stand or blind they want to go to a location that will give them a good chance of seeing activity and being successful. Unless you are okay leaving your success to chance you want information to help you know where and when you should hunt. One of the best ways to get information about deer or other game in your area is to use a trail camera.

Trail cameras allow you to capture pictures or videos 24 hours a day along with important information about the time and conditions when each image or video clip was recorded. The problem is that there are a dizzying number of models to choose from with each having their own unique combination of features. So it can feel daunting to identify what features and specification that are most important to you so you can get a trail camera that meets your needs regardless of your budget.

This guide is meant to help inform you about the most important features of trail cameras and what specifications you should be targeting whether you’re on a budget or price is no object.

1. Image Quality

Image quality is easily the most important feature to consider when buying a new trail camera. The most important thing to look at with regard to image quality is the number of megapixels, which is abbreviated as MP. Megapixels is how image resolution is measured – and the more megapixels, the better.

That may not be much of a surprise, but what is surprising is how crisp of an image even a lower megapixel camera (like 8-10 MP) can display. This may not mean much to those for whom price is no obstacle, but for everyone else it’s significant. As long as you have sufficient lighting, a megapixel count from 8-12 MP should be fine for most situations. More mid-range priced cameras range between 14-16 MP. If, however, you want to focus on nighttime photography or capturing images of fast-moving animals, the higher-priced cameras usually range between 16-20 MPs. There are even some luxury models that come with 30 MP resolution. Of course, the higher the resolution – the more you money will expect to spend.

Another thing buyers want to think about is the fact that higher resolution images will fill up the storage space on your memory card more quickly. This can be a problem for people who intend on leaving their trail camera for an extended period of time before checking it – especially if it is in an area with a lot of activity. Luckily, most trail cameras will allow you to choose if you want to capture images at the maximum resolution the camera is capable of or at a lower resolution to help you save on storage space. However, most people will be fine having their cameras on the maximum resolution setting if they have a large enough memory card.

2. Video Quality

Trail cameras can capture video as well as pictures. So you also need to know the resolution at which the trail camera can record videos.

Just a few years ago a lot of trail cameras were still recording videos in SD and a lot of them didn’t record audio while they were recording videos. Back then it was a big deal to have a trail camera that could record video in 720p.

These days HD video recording is the norm and while recording videos at 720p is good, newer models typically record in 1080p with a few models like the Stealth Cam DS4K and the Browning Recon Force 4K trail cameras able to record videos in 4K.

3. Detection Range Detection Angle

When buying a trail camera you always want to think about how far away you will want to place the camera from the area you want to monitor. This is an important thing to consider because if a deer wanders through the area in front of the camera, but is beyond the detection zone the camera will never be triggered to take a picture or record a video. The detection zone is comprised of two things, the detection range, and the detection angle.

Detection Range

When people talk about a trail camera’s detection range they are referring to the distance the passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) can sense motion and heat in front of the camera. People will also use the terms “motion detector” or “motion sensor” interchangeably as they are referring to the detection range of a trail camera.

Entry-level models will often have detection ranges of up to 65 feet while some of the top of the line trail cameras will have detection ranges extending out to a distance of 100 feet or more.

Trail cameras will sometimes have what is referred to as a false trigger when the passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) thinks that there is motion and heat in front of the camera lens and tells the camera to take a picture or record a video when there is no subject in the image. If this happens too often is can fill your memory card and shorten the life of your batteries. Some trail cameras will have the ability to adjust the sensitivity of the passive infrared sensor (PIR) to help eliminate the occurrence of these false triggers.

Detection Angle

Related to detection range is the detection angle. The lens on the PIR sensor in combination with the sensor will help the sensor have a specific detection angle from which it can detect heat and movement. A large number of trail cameras have a detection angle in the range of 40° to 45° range with some models having detection angles up into the 60’s.

The detection angle isn’t a figure that is always talked about by trail camera manufacturers and may be hard to come by. However, if a specific model has a very large detection angle the manufacturer will usually be sure to point that out.

4. Trigger Speed

Trigger speed is another important consideration when choosing the right trail camera. It refers to the time elapsed between when a camera detects heat or movement and when it captures an image.

Having a trail camera with a faster trigger speed (smaller numbers/shorter times) will increase the chance of capturing a shot of your target animal. Trigger speeds can range from an adequate time of 1 second to the cutting-edge time of 0.2 seconds or less.

Having a trail camera with a fast trigger speed is most important when you have the camera located in an area where the deer might only be in front it for a split second. However, trigger speed becomes less important on a camera that is posted on a food plot or other area where deer or other game is likely to browse or linger for extended periods of time.

5. Recovery Time

Recovery time is a subset of trigger time since it measures the time between shots taken. In simple terms, recovery time is the time a trail camera needs in order to be ready to take a second picture after a previously triggered picture is captured.

This means you also have to account for this recovery period when calculating how many possible images can be captured when your camera’s detection zone is triggered. You can have a camera with a .2 second trigger time, but if it has a recovery time of 4.2 seconds it can actually capture fewer images a minute than a camera with a .5 second trigger time (if that camera has a shorter recovery time like 2 seconds or less). In this case, shorter recovery times don’t necessarily correspond to price range. Don’t forget to check the video specs for both trigger time and recovery time for capturing video images using heat and motion detection as well. This is why it’s important to examine both trigger time and recovery time specs when comparing trail cameras to calculate the total time of your camera’s detection circuit.

Recovery time becomes more important when a trail camera is monitoring an area that deer usually pass through rather quickly as opposed to a feeding area where they will spend more time. For example, a camera with a long recovery time might capture a picture of a doe that passes through the detection zone but isn’t ready in time to take a picture of the buck that was following close behind.

6. Flash

The flash used for night images and videos is arguably the second most important thing to consider when choosing a trail camera (behind only image quality). When thinking about the flash used on your trail camera you want to think about two things. The first thing you want to think about is the range of the flash (how far away can it successfully illuminate objects). The second thing you want to think about is what type of flash you want (what type of flash technology you want to use).

There are three options to choose from.

White Flash

The type of flash that we are all most familiar with is incandescent flash. This white flash is preferable when you want to capture color images to pinpoint animal coat patterns and hues. These provide the best kind of night images, but incandescent flashes are also more likely to scare game off and use more battery life than infrared flashes. White flash can also affect trigger and recovery times as well since it takes more time for incandescent flashes to recharge for the next shot. White flash is the least common type of flash found on trail cameras.

Not only can bright flashes scare away animals, but they also attract camera thieves as well. So if concealing the location of your trail cam is important you probably want to look at a trail camera with infrared flash.

Infrared (IR) Flash

The vast majority of trail cameras will have IR flash. The thing you need to know is that there are two types of IR flash. There are Low Glow and No Glow IR flash (know that some manufacturers might use different names for these). Both types of infrared flash will give you black and white pictures and videos. Depending on your situation one type of IR flash might be better for you than the other.

Note: While the downside of infrared flashes are the black and white images and they can sometimes be a bit grainy if the object is in motion when the image is captured, which can be exacerbated if the infrared flash is used on cameras with low MP resolution and/or larger detection zones. That being said infrared flashes have several benefits:

  • they use less power
  • trail cameras with infrared flash have shorter trigger and recovery times
  • they tend to capture more images a minute than incandescent flashes.

Low Glow Flash

Trail cameras that feature a low-glow infrared flash utilize red LED lights (low-level spectrum of red light) that are barely detectable by mammals. Even though these red lights greatly enhance night images, their red glow is barely noticeable unless you look straight at the camera during the flash. Most hunters agree that a camera equipped with low glow flash won’t spook deer or other game animals that walk in front of it while the low-glow flash is on.

Trail cameras with low glow flash are usually priced a bit less than the similarly equipped models that use no glow flash.

No Glow Flash

Trail cameras with low-glow infrared flash use black LED lights that remain dark and undetectable by humans and animals when the flash is in use. No glow infrared flashes allow the trail camera to capture images and video at night while keeping the location of the camera hidden.

Trail cameras with no glow flash are ideal if you are using the camera on public land and want to keep its’ location hidden. They are also ideal if you plan on using it for security purposes.

Trail cameras with no glow flash are usually priced higher than similarly equipped models that have low glow flash.

7. Image Stamp

trail camera image stampAn image stamp is the information that a camera puts on an image to tell you more about when and where it was taken. Depending on the manufacturer you might hear people talking about image stamps, data stamps, time stamp or other similar terms, but they are all referring to the same things.

Several years ago people were happy if they had a trail camera that had an image stamp that listed the date and time on the images it captured. Now in addition to the date and time, there is so much more information that could be found on an image stamp including:

  • Temperature
  • Moon Phase
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Wind
  • Camera ID or Name (great for people with multiple cameras)
  • GPS Coordinates (great for people with multiple cameras/camera locations)

Beyond the date and time, which is included on every camera, the information included on image stamps will vary from model to model. So if you are interested in trying to figure out how certain weather conditions affect animal movements and behavior in your area you will want to pay attention to the information provided in a trail camera’s image stamp before purchasing it.

As you might expect trail cameras with the most information on their image stamps will often have a higher price tag than those that have less information.

8. Cellular Camera

Cellular trail cameras can utilize cellular networks to send you pictures and video directly from the field. Cellular cameras need to be in an area with a strong enough cellular signal and a have a monthly cellular subscription to work properly (unless you have the LINK-DARK (AT&T) or the LINK-DARK-V (Verizon), which have a free plan that allows you to send 100 pictures per month.

Cellular trail cameras are great choices for people who would otherwise have to travel long distances to check their camera(s), don’t want to disturb the area around the camera, want up to the moment information, or want to use a trail cam for security purposes.

9. Bluetooth

A new feature that has been starting to appear on trail cameras is Bluetooth connectivity. For those who are not familiar, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for the exchange of data between devices over short distances using short-wavelength UHF radio waves. This will allow you to download images and videos from your trail camera to another Bluetooth enabled device without having to swap out SD cards or connect to your trail camera via a cable.

Trail cameras with Bluetooth will usually be able to connect to another device from a distance of about 100 to 150 feet. This can be helpful in a few different situations:

  • Not disturbing the area by the trail camera – We talk all the time about not checking your trail camera too often so as to not disturb the surrounding area. A Bluetooth enabled trail camera will allow you to check your camera from a distance. This doesn’t mean that you can start checking your trail camera every day, because you still need to be with the general vicinity of the camera. What this does mean is that getting pictures and videos from your trail camera might be LESS disruptive than it ordinarily would be.
  • Being able to check the trail camera remotely from your deer stand or blind – Most of the time people place trail cameras in areas that they are planning on hunting. That being said, you really don’t want to disturb the area you will be hunting in any more than necessary – especially during hunting season. So you really don’t want to spend extra time walking around the area during hunting season just to check your trail camera. However, if your ground blind or tree stand is within range of your Bluetooth enabled trail camera you could check your camera from your stand or blind. That will allow you to know about any game that has come through your area when you were away from your deer stand without disturbing your hunting area.
  • Being able to easily retrieve pictures and videos from elevated cameras – Sometimes people will mount their trail cameras in elevated positions to get a better view of the area they are monitoring. If you have a Bluetooth enabled trail camera that is mounted higher up you won’t need to use a ladder every time you want to retrieve the pictures and videos it has captured.

10. Viewing Screen

A built-in viewer is useful for more than just making it easier to see images if you want to take a quick peek at them in the field.

Cameras with viewers tend to have menu interfaces that are easier to operate and will allow you to preview pictures and videos in the field without a computer. Being able to see pictures in the field can be a great help when you are setting up a trail camera and you want to be sure that you have the camera pointed in just the right direction, which is especially true if that camera has a long detection and/or flash range.

The one drawback of having a viewing screen is that it will usually cause the size of the trail camera to be just a bit bigger, which is a problem if you need a trail camera that is as compact as possible.

11. Battery and Power Options

Every trail camera will run on batteries, but depending on how you plan on using the camera and how frequently you plan on checking it you might want to think about how you want to power your camera and consider some alternate power sources.

Internal Battery Power

Most trail cameras will use either AA, C or D batteries with the majority of cameras using AA batteries. Modern trail cameras will run several months on one set of batteries with some manufacturers boasting that their cameras will run up to a year on one set of batteries.

In reality, there is a great variance in terms of how long a set of batteries will last even between people who are using the exact same trail camera. This is due to a few factors:

  • Type of batteries used: To get the maximum battery life from your trail camera you will want to use high-quality lithium batteries. Some people might want to save money by using rechargeable batteries, but they often have a lower voltage than their disposable counterparts, so their energy life is usually shorter as well or results in the camera shutting off prematurely even when they technically still have energy.
  • Camera settings: Setting a camera up to take more pictures or longer videos can significantly shorten the battery life, even more so if a significant portion of the pictures and videos are captured at night.
  • Amount of activity in your area: Each picture your camera takes or video it records requires energy from the batteries. So it only makes sense that the batteries in trail cameras that are in areas with a lot of traffic don’t last as long as batteries in cameras in areas with less activity.

External Battery Box Power

If you want to leave your trail camera for extended periods of time, traditional battery power may not last long enough. If you are thinking that you will need to extend the battery life of your camera, and your model has an external power port, you could consider getting an external battery box.

An external battery box will come with a large long-lasting rechargeable battery that you can connect to your trail camera. Some external battery boxes are made by trail camera manufacturers and are specifically designed for their brand/models. You will also find external battery boxes that are made by other companies that work with multiple trail camera brands.

There are a few potential things to keep in mind before buying an external battery box. The first thing to consider is that external battery boxes can cost as much as many lower-priced trail cameras, but they will pay for themselves over time with the money you save on batteries. The second thing to think about is that unless you try to hide it an external battery box can be easy to spot and make it harder to conceal the location of your trail camera. The last thing you need to ponder is if adding an external battery box will attract thieves – especially if you plan on using your camera on public land.

Solar Panel Power Supply

If your trail camera has an external power port another option to power it is through the use of a solar panel. By using a solar panel you won’t extend the battery life of the camera, you will be able to power your camera indefinitely.

You can find solar panels made by trail camera manufacturers that are specifically designed for their brand/models. You can also find solar panels that are made by other companies that work with multiple brands. Every once in a while when you are shopping for a new trail camera you might even see a trail cam that is bundled with a solar panel.

There are a few potential things to consider before buying a solar panel for your trail camera. The first thing to consider is that a solar panel can cost as much as many trail cameras, but they will pay for themselves over time with the money you save on batteries. The second thing to think about is that a solar panel can stick out visually and make it harder to conceal the location of your camera. The last thing you need to ask yourself is if adding a solar panel will attract thieves – especially if you plan on putting your trail camera on public land.

12. Memory – Onboard Memory and SD Cards

While some trail cameras will have a small amount of internal memory to go along with the SD card slot that you can use for data storage, you need to plan on using SD cards with your trail camera(s). Most trail cameras today can handle SD cards with a storage capacity of up to 32GB. A few cameras will even be able to handle SD cards with a storage capacity larger than 32GB.

Using SD cards to store your pictures and videos will allow you to store more pictures and videos than internal camera storage will allow (assuming you have a camera with internal storage). Plus, if you buy two SD cards for each trail camera, which is what we suggest, retrieving the images from your trail camera is quick and easy as you swap out SD cards without having to spend a lot of time in the woods disturbing the area surrounding the camera. Finally, viewing the images and videos stored on your SD card is very easy regardless of if you use the SD card slot on your computer or an SD card reader.

If you want to learn more about what type of SD card you should buy for your trail camera you can read our article about how to choose the best SD card for trail cameras.

13. Security Features

As we discussed earlier, thieves are not above stealing trail cameras and models with incandescent as well as low glow flashes tend to attract camera thieves by giving away the location of the camera at night, but regardless of what type of flash you have you can still find things to help to protect your investment and stop someone from easily walking off with your trail camera.

Security Code Box: Probably the most effective feature on pricier security boxes, this allows access to opening your security box with a pin pad and an access code. Just keep in mind that this feature accompanies the more expensive trail camera models.

Security Boxes: Most security boxes use a key and lock approach when protecting your investment. Not only is this cheaper, but it is also easier to prevent code hacking and otherwise circumventing your box’s security

Anti-theft cables: These are the cheapest option to explore if you can’t afford a full-fledged security box. These often utilize either a security pin or use lock/key systems. Just be aware that bolt and cable cutters are often used by camera thieves to get around the cheaper security measures like cables and bolt locks.

GPS Chip: Cameras with GPS technology can tell you its’ location for each picture it takes. This is a really great feature when you put trail cameras in multiple locations. This GPS technology can be even more helpful when it is on a cellular trail camera. One example of this is the Bushnell Impulse cellular trail camera, which will notify you if someone has moved it to a different location so you can find it. Plus, the camera will allow you to lock it remotely so a camera thief will be unable to use it.

Conclusion

Everyone uses trail cameras differently. Some of us place our cameras on public land while others place their cameras on private land. Some of us use trail cameras on the edge of a field or a food plot to track game while other people set their cameras up in the woods. Some people don’t use their trail cameras to track game at all, but instead use them for security and surveillance purposes at their home, cabin, or business. So it is fair to say that there isn’t one trail camera that is best for all people or all situations.

Hopefully, this buying guide helped you to better understand the different features and options that are available on trail cameras so you can better identify the features that are most important to you and your unique situation.
