Tips for buying the best trail camera for the money

Noise

Make sure the camera is quite when it snaps photos. Nothing is worse than a noisy unit that scares the game away.

Flash

Consider the type of flash you want: Infrared, incandescent, or white LED flash. Each has benefits and drawbacks.

LED and incandescent can take color pictures in the dark, which will be of a better resolution. They use more juice, have a warm-up time, and can spook game because of their bright light, though.

Infrared will be in black and white, with pictures that have less resolution. Battery life will be longer, and theres no flash to scare game or advertise human presence.

Power supply

External power supplies work well when you have a camera that is deep in the woods.

It behooves you go to the location every 2 weeks to change batteries, which will probably alert game of human presence.

They are available in 6V or 12V models. Solar power panels are another option, as are alkaline, lithium, and NiMH batteries.

Resolution

Resolution ranges between 5 to 12 megapixels. The higher the resolution is the better quality the image.

Memory

Memory is measured in gigabytes, and the more you have the more pictures and video you will be able to store. Theres nothing worse than running out of space and realizing the camera you own uses a overwrite the oldest photos technique!

Wi-Fi

If the camera has Wi-Fi capability, it will be able to transmit images over a Wi-Fi network and internet.
