3T - 2017 Browning Strike Force Pro HD trail camera

 

2017 Browning Dark Ops HD Pro

 

New for October 2017 is the Browning Dark Ops HD Pro camera trap. It has 18MP photos, 720p HD video, a very fast trigger speed and a host of other exciting features.

This trail camera is essentially the No-Glow LED version of the popular Browning Strike Force HD Pro. The design and features are the same, with the exception of the no-glow LEDs.

The Strike Force HD Pro has always been one of Browning’s flagship cameras – and this new no-glow Dark Ops version means a completely covert camera with a big IR flash range.

It has a few things that set it apart right from the outset. Just from looking at it, it’s obvious this camera is tiny compared to others. It’s about half the size of your average trail camera. And within that small size there is also a 1.5″ colour screen.

The LEDs are no-glow and have an impressive max. range of about 80ft, thanks to a new design of IR emitters. That’s a very big flash range. Looking at the camera, you’ll see just 4 LEDs. These have an insane range and this innovation from Browning has the potential to revolutionise how we think about IR LEDs on camera traps.

The camera has a setting which allows you to tweak the flash based on your requirements; Power Save, Fast Motion or Long Range. The Browning Dark Ops HD Pro can detect movement out to about 80ft.

The forward-facing 1.5″ colour screen not only lets you view the images/videos captured, but is invaluable during set up as it shows exactly what the camera can see – so if you’ve set it too high, a look at the screen will tell you and you can then adjust.

The Dark Ops HD Pro also has another exciting innovation from Browning; ‘Smart IR Video’ – this means that the camera will continue recording video footage for up to 2 minutes during the daytime and up to 20 seconds at night as long as the wildlife/people continue to move in front of the camera. So if you’re worried about video length vs. battery life, this feature takes that concern off your hands. It just records when there is something to record. So far, this feature appears to work extremely well.

Another useful feature on the Dark Ops HD Pro is Rapid Fire mode for images, which can take up to 8 images at 0.3 seconds apart per trigger event, and multi-shot mode, which takes up to 8 images at 3 second intervals.

The 2017 Browning Dark Ops HD Pro is powered by 6x AA batteries (not provided), and now has the ability to use an SD card up to 512GB – unprecedented in camera trapping. We’re not sure if you’ll ever need that amount, but it’s nice to have the option of using a 64GB card for long-term monitoring, or if you don’t want to keep deleting captures from your SD card.

In all, the feature list for a camera this price are pretty amazing. It’s suitable for almost any setup and delivers high quality results.

The Browning Dark Ops HD Pro is supplied with a 2 year warranty when bought through NatureSpy. Browning are an American company; but if anything goes wrong with your camera, we’ll deal with all warranty returns here in the UK. We’ll never ask you to send your Browning camera trap direct to the manufacturer.

Browning are an American-based camera trap manufacturer with a growing reputation. They’ve innovated fast and won loyal customers across the pond – and its easy to see why. We’re proud to be a main UK distributor.

The new 2017 range from Browning builds on their successes, pushing the boundaries and improving every time. The Recon Force Extreme and Spec Ops Extreme have some of the best video quality we’ve ever seen on a camera trap; comfortably challenging (and even beating) the previous leaders, Bushnell.

Browning say that you can watch their 1080p footage back on a 60 inch TV and not lose clarity – and we can see what they mean. Add excellent video trigger times (which are always slower than photo triggers) of about 0.4 seconds, and you can start to see why we’re so excited about these trail cameras. You can see videos for the product you’re viewing on the ‘Example video’ tab.

Photo quality is also generally good, though differs throughout the range. Trigger times again are strong. Some models also have Multi-Shot and Rapid-Fire modes, which give you control and choice over what you want your camera to do when taking photos.

Many models also have built-in, forward facing colour screens and a host of smart features and simple set ups to make camera trapping that bit easier and convenient. Add this all together with the excellent price and it can be difficult to look beyond a Browning camera trap.

And as NatureSpy are an official UK distributor, you’re fully covered by our 2 year warranty and if in the unlikely event something goes wrong, we’ll deal with it entirely in the UK.
