2018 Reconyx Hyperfire 2 Trail Camera

 

New for is the 2018 Reconyx HyperFire 2 trail camera – their long-awaited update to the HyperFire line and with some really eye-catching details.

Firstly, the trigger speeds are outstanding – about 0.25 seconds for both photos and videos. Thats certainly good for photos, but outstanding to have the same speed for videos too.

Battery life for photos is something else too – the HyperFire 2 can take over 40,000 images on one set of Lithium batteries. It has comfortably the best photo battery life on the market, by some margin, and also takes up to a 512GB SD card. It can also take up to 90 images per trigger. Which is a lot.

The HyperFire 2 also has a big no-glow IR flash range, thanks to 12 long-range LEDs of up to 45m. It has the biggest no-glow IR flash range of any camera trap on the market today. Coupled with the amazing photo battery life, that is seriously impressive.

Importantly, as with other Reconyx, the camera only takes either single-use Lithium or NiMh Rechargeable batteries.

Also as with other Reconyx trail cameras, they don’t artificially inflate the sizes of images and videos with interpolation. The HyperFire 2 offers 3MP images either fullscreen or widescreen, and Reconyx have a new image sensor in the HyperFire 2 which offers high definition photos.

The image quality is really good day and night, with pretty much no motion blur – especially impressive from a No-Glow trail camera.

Videos are 720p HD and are decent quality with good audio although frame rates are capped at 20fps, which is pretty low by today’s standards. If top video quality is your number 1 priority in a wildlife camera trap, the HyperFire 2 is comfortably outflanked by the Browning Recon Force and Spec Ops cameras.

The internal screen is a small backlit LCD display, not offering any playback etc. The Reconyx HyperFire 2 does however have plenty of options for customising the setup, which means you can get it to do pretty much exactly what you want – it certainly doesn’t feel like there are any limitations in the setup options. You can check out the manual, which has the setup options, here.

One of the other big headlines is that Reconyx really back their cameras – and the HyperFire 2 is no different, with a 5 year warranty offered as standard.

This trail camera also has Reconyx’s CodeLoc feature, which when turned on means you can set a passcode which is required to access and turn on the camera – meaning if it’s stolen, it’s useless.
