The Ltl Acorn 5610a camera trap is an update to the popular 5310 series of cameras, with some new and improved features.

The Ltl Acorn 5610a not only offers the ability to record superb HD video at 1080P (15ps) or 720P (30fps) but also record crystal clear audio and have much improved and very accurate timers over the previous 5310 series. It also takes up to 14MP photos.

The Ltl Acorn 5610a uses a large 44 no-glow infrared LED array for powerful night vision.

It’s available with the standard lens (5610a – show above) and also the wide angle lens (5610WA) version. The standard lens offers a 55 degree angle of view and the wide angle lens offers 100 degrees.

The Ltl Acorn 5610a has all the other usual Ltl Acorn camera features such as the ability to set timers (if you want the camera to only trigger and record at certain times of day/night), timelapse (which can be used to set the camera to only take a photo or record a video at certain intervals, i.e. one photo every 60 minutes for instance), time/date stamped footage, SD card recycling etc.

An additional feature of the Ltl Acorn 5610a is that you can input GPS co-ordinates for the camera. These co- ordinates will show in a photos’/videos’ properties so, when you are reviewing the recordings later, you will know exactly where the camera was located.

The Ltl Acorn 5610a can utilise up to a 32GB SD Card and can hold a maximum of 12 AA batteries, although it can run of just 4, and comes with a 1 year warranty.

Battery choice is vital for the performance the Ltl Acorn wildlife trail cameras and we do not recommend using any batteries with a mAh rating of less than 2500mA. Duracell batteries should be avoided completely.

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.

Ltl Acorn camera trap 5210a

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.

    One of my friends bought a Little Acorn camera trap from Amazon, has used it for a while, and was very pleased with it. My wife thought it would make an excellent birthday present for me. However, when we searched online, I was really impressed by the information on the website of NatureSpy and particularly by the excellent reviews about their service, so I rang up for some pre-sales advice and guidance. I spoke with James (and exchanged several emails) and he could not have been more pleasant, informative or helpful. This is what great service is supposed to be like. He guided me towards the Little Acorn 5610A – and that it what I bought. It arrived very quickly, safe and well packaged (as did the SD card and batteries that James also helpfully suggested). It is too early for me to review how it works, but I will get back on that soon. If you are thinking of buying something that NatureSpy sell, do buy it from them. It probably will be as good a price as elsewhere, if not better, you will get great service, and look what good things they do with any profit. Win, win, win.

    I have been using the 5610a for only 4 nights so far and have been pleased with results. Camera is very easy to set up and colour viewfinder screen extremely useful. I can only comment on night time video. So far camera has been triggered by hedgehogs, cats and a mouse. The quality of the night time video so far has been very good. I. have sited the camera about 8 foot away from a fence, as a result the first few frames of video are overexposed and washed out. Fortuneately the camera then seems to adjust ant the rest of the video is perfect. I will probably try to make a mask to cover some of the Leds to see if that enables me to capturethe critical initial frames of action.

      Hi Gordon – glad things are going well so far! 8 foot is fairly close for this camera’s LEDs – we find that layers of brown parcel tape is a good way to tone down the LED power if required. Be careful not to cover the light sensor in the middle if you also want to capture daytime video.

      Best of luck,
