What is a Game Remote Camera?
A game camera is actually a remote camera that is used in a wide variety of ways. Often times, photographers will place remote cameras in areas where they cannot reach or in areas that where a human may disturb the subject of the picture.
Remote cameras are also commonly used in wildlife photography as well as at sporting events to capture unique shots. One example at sporting events is the placement of a remote camera on the top of a basketball goal or on top of the bleachers at a football stadium.
Another type of remote camera is a game camera that is placed in the woods by hunters to take pictures of wildlife moving on their land. These game cameras use motion sensors to detect movements. When a remote camera detects movement in the area, the camera will take a picture.
A remote camera can record images as either a video clip or a still image. The camera can be placed in locations where the photographer cannot be for whatever reason. This includes tight spaces where a person cannot get in, areas where a person would otherwise interfere with the activity that is being recorded, or locations in the woods where hunters are scouting game.
Remote cameras are often used at sporting events like on top of the backboard at a televised basketball game. They are also used in wildlife photography. The images of game produced in the woods are used by hunters.
Remote cameras can show hunters where game, such as deer or turkey, are located. These images can help hunters determine where the best places to put their tree-stands or blinds.
The best trail camera available today is a digital camera in which images are stored on a memory card. A memory card allows the hunter to transfer and view images on a home computer or laptop. The more expensive trail cams have wireless capability which allows the camera to upload the stored images to a website.
