Bushnell cameras

Bushnell cameras

Bushnell is a popular US company that has over seventy years experience in selling a range of products, including rifle sights, rangefinders, telescopes and binoculars, and of course, trail cams.

Their range of trail cameras caters for the more professional end of the market, with price tags to match. Bushnell probably isn’t the best place to shop if you’re looking for a cheap, no-nonsense camera to start out with, but if you need a solid, dependable, quality product then they might just have the answer.

Here are a couple of their top products.

Bushnell Prime Camera

The camera has 24MP resolution and comes with automatic day/night sensors, so should give a good quality image whatever time of day it is. Video footage is captured in 1080p, at 30 frames per second.

The video can be set to record between 5 and 60 seconds of footage at a time, and the camera can capture three pictures in burst mode. With a 0.3 second shutter rate it’s fast enough to catch animals before they disappear out of frame.

It comes with a two-year warranty and there’s also an optional pack of 16GB SD card and six AA batteries.

As with all battery powered cameras its usually a good economy to buy rechargeable batteries, in fact buy two sets, then you can simply swap the old for the new and recharge them later. They might cost a little more at the outset but you’ll soon make that back after a few weeks and save a lot of batteries from going into landfill.

CelluCORE Trail Camera

Wireless trail cameras are becoming more popular as they save you the trouble of having to actually visit the camera, photos and video are transmitted straight to your phone, allowing you to view them remotely. This kind of camera has other plusses too. Not visiting the camera will mean that you’re less likely to disturb any creatures that you’re watching.

The CelluCORE trail camera has quite a few features. The 20MP video quality is good for a wireless camera and it has a sub-one-second trigger speed. It does seem a bit heavy on batteries at 12 AAs, but they do advertise up to 6months battery life, and the wireless capability will of course take more power.

Probably the biggest drawback of any wireless camera is that it has to be able to connect to a network to work. It’s best to check whether the area where you want to place the camera is covered before you buy, or you might as well purchase a simple non-cellular camera. But if you can get coverage, then the ease of use and practicality that a wireless trail camera offers is definitely worth going for.
