Camera Traps with Great Video

Which camera trap has the best video quality? That's a great question, as new technologies constantly improve the benchmark. Nearly all cameras now offer some level of HD quality, but there are big differences between the same resolutions on different camera traps.

Video quality is one of the main features that has undergone massive improvement since NatureSpy started camera trapping. Browning and Bushnell have also released cameras that have 'Smart' video. They use the PIR sensor to determine if an animal or human is still present and regulate video length accordingly. The maximum length is dependent on the camera.

These new cameras have also switched to a 12V system, rather than the conventional 6V. As a result, the cameras use a little more power, but night video is vastly improved. If you're looking for crisp video quality, we've got it covered.
