This camera is a trail blazer on the trail camera market. This camera comes runs on batteries and each set will last one year. The 8MP Trophy also boasts a one second trigger time. The camera has a Field Scan mode that is use time lapse technology to allow you to review wildlife activity or your property over a span of time. I also like that this camera gives a larger coverage area and it is not triggered by animal movement.

The 8MP Trophy Cam features true HD video resolution with audio recording. This camera also offers you brighter and sharper night time images thanks to the Hyper Night Vision which features a no-glow black LED. This camera also allows you to optimum consistency in all conditions with its New Auto PIR which automatically regulates sensitivity based on the current temperature.

There is no doubt that this trail camera is among the leading trail cameras available, and for its price, this camera gives value for money.

The other features are really good and make this camera one of the leading cameras in its class. The price represents a really good bargain as I firmly believe that this camera is a trail blazer.

[amazon fields=”B00AU6E1LI” value=”thumb” image_size=”large”]

This is a close-focus camera that is designed to take pictures of small animals that approach near the camera so it is fairly good for bird watching. This camera is different from traditional trail cameras. Traditional trail cameras use an infinite focus that keeps everything further than one meter in focus, which means that anything within one meter tends to blur; this is not the case with this camera. The Natureview HD comes with a 25 cm and a 46 cm focus lenses which are in addition to the standard infinity-focus lens.


  • Incredible close-up focus
  • Fairly good battery life
  • Quick detection circuit
  • Gives value for price


  • Night time photography isn’t great as the flash can overwhelm anything that is too close.

Of all the cameras listed here, I do think that this camera is the least attractive. Do not get me wrong though, this camera will represent a very good buy, but when looking at all the features and weighing them against the price, I do believe there are better options available.
