Best camera trap for photos

Camera traps with great images

These cameras have been handpicked by us for the best quality images they produce.

However, it is important to understand image interpolation first. 

This is the process of taking an image at a native resolution of say 3 megapixels (MP), and turning it into a 20MP photo. 

To do this, the camera processes the original 3MP image by adding similar coloured pixels around an original pixel to boost the resolution, or size, of the image. 

On some cameras, this works well - on others, not so well. It can make images look grainy and more distorted. 

Below are our top recommendations for camera traps with great image quality...

The Primos Proof 02 is super simple to use and set up, and the day photos and photo trigger speeds are amongst the best. If you want even better night photos, check the Proof Cam 03. These two cameras are hard to beat for price and image quality

 This innovative Browning offers great photo quality, fast trigger speeds and long photo-battery life

The original Ltl Acorn offers great 12MP photos from a 5MP sensor. Switch to a 5310a if you need a bigger flash
Day photos are fantastic - and two close-focus lenses mean you get high-quality images of birds and small mammals
