Camera traps for research

Increasingly being used for research, some camera trap models are better for this than others. Accuracy and reliability are key requirements.

If you're looking to use a camera trap for research purposes, it can be very important to make the right choice. 

We're very aware than researchers are also often on a tight budget.

Of course, a lot depends on what your research is based on; i.e. small mammals, identification of individual animals, occupancy studies - but the below should help you choose. 

We have been providing camera traps to large institutions and individual students for years; including Oxford University, Fauna & Flora International, Wildlife Trusts and many more, for uses as varied as tiger research and fox occupancy studies.

The Bushnell Aggressors have been popular choices for researchers for a long time, and the new models build on their reputation. Fast trigger speeds, good reliability and great images and videos mean they're a solid choice

 If you need to capture video, there is no better option - it also has extremely quick video trigger speeds, meaning you won't miss whatever passes by, and doesn't break the bank

A top all-round choice - blazing trigger speeds and fanastic battery life, with great quality video and photos. Trigger speed for photos is just 0.15 seconds - one the fastest available currently.
A more affordable camera, with great quality night photos and videos. Trigger speeds are slower for videos, but strong for photos
