Bushnell why choose NatureSpy

2019 Bushnell Core No-glow…


The Bushnell Core No-Glow trail camera is a completely redesigned offering from Bushnell and released as part of a new range of cameras, the first in over 2 years. A familiar name in trail cameras, this new model suggests its reputation will continue.

The headline upgrades are;

  • A completely redesigned camera casing, now with a battery tray and the camera body enclosed, rather than as part of the door
  • Image resolution is now up to 24MP (interpolated from 3MP)
  • Improved trigger speeds for both photo and video
  • Change in LED type
  • Better battery life compared to previous Bushnells off 6x AA batteries
  • Marginal improvement in the detection circuit

The 2019 Bushnell Core No-Glow is a weatherproof wildlife camera that records 1080p HD video @ 30fps, with motion detection out to 100ft and an internal LCD screen for setup only.

The Bushnell Core No-Glow has a trigger speed of just under 0.2 seconds and recovery between triggers is around 1 second. Video trigger speeds are about 0.5 seconds. The Hybrid Mode allows you to record both images and video for each trigger. The trigger interval can also be adjusted – this is the time inbetween capture events – between 1 second to 60 minutes. In a first for Bushnell, you can also get up to 5 images per trigger event.

The 2x Field Scan function uses time lapse technology to capture images at specified intervals (1 minute to 1 hour) between the hours of your choice. You can programme two separate time lapse windows so that you can monitor both dusk and dawn activity at your survey site.

The Core No-Glow is powered by 6x AA batteries and they will last, under average use, 2 months for video mode and around 9 months on photo mode (using Lithium). For long-term use and to get the best from the Bushnell Core No-Glow, it is important to use Lithium batteries. Using inferior batteries, and batteries with below a 2500mAh capacity will seriously affect the performance of the camera.

The Infrared LEDs are no-glow which makes them completely invisible to animals and people, with no light whatsoever given off. No-Glow LEDs offer a reduced flash range compared to Low-Glow LEDs however, but are more suitable for sensitive animals and security use.

As a fully authorised Bushnell dealer, we supply the 2019 Bushnell Core Trail Camera with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Why choose NatureSpy for the Bushnell Core No Glow wildlife camera

2019 Bushnell Core No Glow2019 Bushnell Core No Glow 119938 review


We’re busy putting the Bushnell Core No-Glow through its paces for this review – check back soon for all the specs and example photos and videos

The 2019 Bushnell Core No Glow is a complete design departure from the tradition Bushnell designs of the last 5-10 years, with a one-body camera and small door opening.

It doesn’t depart however on where it matters, and Bushnell have always had a very strong showing in detection and speed. The new models, including this Core No-Glow, continue that tradition.

Video quality is a general improvement over the previous models and we finally have 30 frames per second at night on a Bushnell, rather than the 18fps on the last model.

It is straight-forward to use and the menu will be familiar to Bushnell users, with no major departures or changes in the settings.

Its powered by a 9V system from 6x AA batteries, less than normal in a Bushnell, but battery efficiency is a big improvement over the Aggressor models. This still means night time videos are limited to 15 seconds per clip with LED Control set to ‘High’. Turning this setting to ‘Low’ or ‘Medium’ means you can get 60 second clips at night. The camera will record up to 2 minutes during the day.

Also taking into consideration the price of this camera, we feel this Bushnell Core No-Glow is a solid offering and a return to form for Bushnell. There are still areas for improvement though…

Ease of use

If you’ve found our review useful, please consider supporting our work and purchasing your next camera trap from us.

Our Bushnell camera traps are central to what we do. Their sturdy build quality, strong detection and video quality sets them apart. We have an intimate knowledge of what makes them tick after years of working with them.

The new 2019 Core and Core DS models represent a big step forward for Bushnell, with much improved case design and battery life, along with faster speeds and better video quality. The Core DS models in particular, with dual sensors for better day and night imagery, have been giving great results.

2017 Bushnell Aggressor Low Glow 119875 review

We ran a crowd-funding project at the end of 2013 to raise money for Bushnell camera traps as part of our Yorkshire Pine Marten Project, and still use more up-to-date Bushnell camera traps in our iWild North Wales and Deescover projects.

We used Bushnell cameras solely in the iWild North Wales project and to a lesser extent in the Deescover project, mainly due to their high video quality.

All of our environmental projects generate hundreds of camera trap videos every single month; you can see some of the highlights and quality of the Bushnell footage on our YouTube channel. Please note that all this footage comes from a variety of Bushnell models at different resolutions.

They are extremely hardy and able to resist both low and high temperatures very well, and the case is well designed.

The image quality is consistently good and it’s main stand-out feature is the video quality.

If you aren’t sure which camera trap is for you, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll provide the best advice we can. All of our staff actually use different camera trap models in the field every single day, so we are ideally placed to help you make the right choice.
