Ltl Acorn 5310a…

All our Ltl Acorn camera traps are genuine. Find out how to avoid counterfeit Ltl Acorns online with our guide.

The Ltl Acorn 5310a wildlife trail camera trap offers increased infrared flash (night vision) capabilities over the 5210a and the 6210MC models, with a massive array of 44 LEDs. Our models are the newly-updated (July 2016) 5310 series, with improved video and audio.

The camera trap can take stills of an eye-popping 12MP quality or record video at an improved 1920 x 1080p quality. Video options are: 1080p (15fps), 720p (30fps), 480p (30fps). Audio recording has also been improved.

The 5310a is also available with the covert “no glow” 940nm array; the no-glow infrared version means that wildlife won’t be disturbed by the red glow of normal IR LEDs. This means animals aren’t alerted to the camera trap, staying around longer and allowing you to get the videos you want.

As with the other Ltl Acorn trail camera models the 5310a can be set to record pictures or video footage whenever movement is detected (the camera actually uses ambient temperature changes to “sense” movement, this heat detection will then trigger a recording).

The Ltl Acorn 5310a camera trap can hold up to 8 AA batteries and can run off just 4 (not included). In our experience, Ltl Acorn cameras can run for around 6-7 months under normal usage (a few triggers events every day & night).

The Ltl Acorn 5310a is also available in a wide angle version (Ltl Acorn 5310WA). The 5310WA gives a field of view of 100, as opposed to the 5310a’s 55 degrees.

It can take a up to a 16gb SD card (not supplied) and comes with a 1 year warranty.

NatureSpy have used Ltl Acorn camera traps for a long time. Their versatility, excellent list of features and affordability means they are an ideal place to start if you’re interested in camera trapping.

The Ltl Acorn 5210a camera traps were used when our Yorkshire Pine Marten Project first started – you may have spotted them when we were on BBC Look North!

Pictures from our Ltl Acorn cameras have appeared in the Yorkshire Post, The Northern Echo, BBC Wildlife Magazine and on ITV Calendar.

One of the best qualities of these cameras is the 12MP images. These give a clarity that many other camera trap models don’t offer.

We always set the camera to take 3 pictures per trigger, and the images are taken at 4 second intervals after the first trigger.

You can see lots of camera trap images from NatureSpy’s Ltl Acorn cameras on our ‘Species Spied‘ pages.

The video quality is generally good across the range and at this price level. If video quality is really important to you, there are likely to be better choices within reach – such as the Bushnell Essential E3, SpyPoint Force 10 or Browning cameras.

Some of the Ltl Acorns (5610 series) have two separate configurable timers – great for if you don’t want the camera to be active at certain periods of the day. We use these timers when we have these cameras on schools, playgrounds or gardens, with the timer set to avoid the period where human activity is highest.

The built-in colour screen is also very useful for checking images quickly in the field and taking test shots. You can strap it up, turn it on, walk in front and then immediately and easily check when the camera triggered and the field of view. The 6210MC has a slightly smaller screen but still performs the same role, and also acts as a useful viewfinder.

You’ll also notice the unique sensor design – if you were to look inside the Ltl Acorn cameras you’d see not one IR sensor (as is the norm), but two. The top sensor faces forwards and is the main sensor. The bottom sensor is funneled into the two side facing ‘prep sensors’.

These sensors ‘prepare’ the camera in advance, so that when the animal approaches the main sensor and triggers the camera, you get optimal footage or images of the animal. This is demonstrated well with the fox picture above. Of course, a lot depends on the animal walking in the way you want it to!

All in all a  great place to start with camera traps, and you’ll be impressed with the results. If you’re not sure what’s best to go for, just get in touch; we’ve been helping people to choose the right camera trap for them for years.
