Different Trail Cameras for Different Applications
When you're trying to find the trail camera that will be the best value for your needs, you should consider how you'll use the trail camera. Cameras send MMS or Video to you? Cameras with large detection zones and large fields of view typically cost more and may not be necessary.
If you're simply looking for a trail camera to record activity around a feeder, then you don't need a large detection zone, because you know that animals are going to be around that feeder. You can save money by purchasing a lower-end camera, such as the Ltl 6310MC.
On the other hand, perhaps you'll want to survey a meadow that is hundreds of feet long. Even the largest detection zone is far too small for that application. You can buy an inexpensive trail camera and set it to time-lapse mode, a feature that bypasses the detection circuit and is present in many affordable cameras. You can even purchase a game camera made specifically for time-lapse footage, the Wilduarder Guard 1
Also, if you want the trail camera send MMS or Video to you after it took, you can buy a 4G version hunting camera, such as Wildguarder Guard1-4G. Then you can check the camera recording status in time.
In a word, before you buy a camera, pls considering the functions that you need.
