Why Do So Many Trail Cameras Take Empty Pictures Or Not Take Any Pictures At All?

If you have used trail cameras for a while you might already be aware of the frustration of cameras that take pictures of “nothing” (pictures with no animals in them) or worse yet fail to take any pictures at all. For people who are new to trail cameras let’s talk about these issues, why they happen, and how the Campark T40 addresses them.

Let’s start with the problem of not taking pictures even though you know that something came through the area.

The Problem of Failing to Take Pictures

Not Capturing Images or Video Can Happen for 3 Main Reasons:

  • The trail camera doesn’t have a wide-angle lens.
  • The motion sensor doesn’t detect at a wide enough angle.
  • The trail camera doesn’t detect motion far enough away.

How Can This Be Fixed?

Campark has addressed this issue in 3 ways with the T40.

  • 120° Wide Angle Camera Lens
  • 120° Wide Motion Detection Range
  • Gave the camera a 0.5 second Trigger Speed, which means that 0.5 seconds after motion is detected the camera will take a picture or begin recording video.

The Problem of Empty Pictures

Pictures and videos with nothing in them can be very frustrating. It might be even more frustrating if you see something barely visible on the edge of the image. So why does this happen?

Empty Pictures Can Happen for 2 Reasons:

  • The subject is moving fast (maybe on the edge of the detection range or the edge of where the camera lens can capture it) and the camera doesn’t take a picture or start recording a video quickly enough.
  • The camera experienced a false trigger. This can happen to any trail cameras and has a lot to do with how and where you set them up. You can learn about how to avoid false triggers here.

How Can This Be Addressed?

Campark T30 Trail CameraHave you ever set up a trail camera on a piece of property only to get a sliver of the game animal in the picture or video just because you didn’t have the camera pointed in just the right direction? Or worse yet, did you miss capturing an image of the animal at all?

Sometimes you don’t know where the activity will happen and the sensor on a traditional trail camera just doesn’t monitor a wide enough area. It can happen to anyone and when it does it is usually pretty frustrating. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem that doesn’t break the bank or require you to buy multiple trail cameras.

How Can You Monitor A Wide Area With Just One Trail Camera?

The secret to monitoring a wider area without using multiple cameras lies in the passive infrared (PIR) sensors, which is the part of the camera that detects motion and triggers the camera to start recording videos or taking pictures.

Historically, most trail cameras had just one PIR sensor. That sensor would often have a detection angle of around 45°. That might sound like a lot, but it really isn’t. Imagine sitting with your eyes looking straight in front of you. You will miss noticing things if you can’t move your eyes or turn your head.

Knowing the limitations of traditional trail cameras with just one PIR sensor, many manufacturers have now started to make trail cameras with multiple PIR sensors to help people who need to monitor a wider area. They have been able to do this while still keeping the price of these trail cameras very affordable. The Campark T30 is one of those cameras.
