Camera Traps with Great Images

It's often difficult to choose a camera based solely on image quality, as the way they take pictures changes as technology develops. Currently, many of them use image interpolation, which is the process of turning a 3 megapixel (MP) image into a 20MP photo.

To do this, the camera processes the original image by adding similar coloured pixels around an original pixel to boost the resolution/size of the image. On some cameras, this works well, yet many have problems with it. It may make images look grainy and distorted.

However, you should experience great image quality from the following camera traps, which we'd recommend as the best trail cameras of 2018 for images. These cameras have been handpicked by our experts for the high-quality images that they produce.
