I can only give it four star at the moment as the climate has been to lousy to give it a very good take a look at. Appears to be like excellent and the remote is really beneficial. Only down facet is you have to undo the foundation to established up and swap on and of which is a small awkward, delivery assistance was prompt.

Great apparent pictures, does the occupation well.

Wonderful high quality – far better than predicted. Great high quality – improved than envisioned. Shame it requires the (quick to quickly mislay) remote control pad to type out the options, though there is a nice little location to stash the management pad in the camera.

Very superior top quality videos and photographs.  i been given this cost-free to test and evaluation. There is an option to use four or eight aa batteries, no question 8 give more time daily life but i tested it with four. This camera provides exceptional outcomes and is very sensitive. The colors for the duration of daylight ended up incredibly great and the night ones did not have an unwelcome color solid. I in the beginning set the day and time but still left all of the other defaults as they ended up. The mode states photo/video, i am not really certain what this indicates as it only took photos, which ended up very superior. I upcoming set it to video and the movie demonstrated is the end result of pointing it at the hen tub as i realized there would be motion there. It is really sensitive to triggering so make confident that it is not pointing at a plant where the leaves blow in the wind, it transpired to me the initial time i tried out it. It mounts effortlessly with the bundled strap, i strapped it to a significant pine tree, the latch on the belt tends to make it effortless to connect and release.

Exceptional solution utilized it and got excellent results.

    Camera is good value and has taken some good photos. Camera is good value and has taken some good photos. I’ve still to understand how it performs so not able to give full review yet, – for example what movement it will pick up etc. However i only score it three stars because i think i have already found two flaws. Firstly the red light is supposed to flash when camera is turned on, but it does not often flash. Hence although camera has always been on, it is not confirmed by flashing light. This is quite important given the on/off switch is hard to access when camera is in position. Secondly the time clock may not be keeping good time. Photos do not have correct time labels on second use of camera. I need to test this again a few times.

    Great product for the money. Arrived promptly – well packaged and all complete. The camera works fine so far – it’s still early days. However i have already got a number of video clips from the product.

    Really good but not so good in low light. Pretty good bit of kit and really well thought out, attaches easily to a tree, or anything else near by, like a fence, and very easy to set up. The flap in the base is a slight problem though, as mine snapped on one side on the second use, it can be quite fiddly to shut as there is quite a lot of sideways movement and i got it at just the wrong angle and it snapped, far too easily. Still shuts but now falls out when i open it in situ. The picture quality is ok and it’s fine if you are just using it for seeing what’s about, but don’t expect to be able to print them, unless you are lucky. The night vision is questionable too, i’ve had a few good snaps of foxes and mice, but the video recording at night is shocking, can hardly make anything out and it’s very jumpy, which is a shame as i bought this to capture some video of a wild boar, that i know is about on our land and they tend to be more active at night. i set it up where he’d been wallowing and just got loads of footage of mice, but that’s just because he hasn’t come back yet. I did get a pretty good video of a pair of woodcock, so was pleased with that but, again the quality was questionable as it was in low light. In summary, for the price it’s worth buying, as it does do what it’s meant to do, but you may need to spend a bit more if you’re after amazing quality.

    Only had it 3 days, so this won’t be a comprehensive review. It seems to work well, though birds do appear to have to get very close to be detected. Larger creatures, such as squirrels and people are spotted at reasonable distances. The main snag is that the “instruction manual” is badly printed so that several lines of text are omitted from many of the pages. The workround is to go to the amcrest website and download the manual for the mobile phone compatible version. If you ignore the phone-relevant information the rest seems to apply and is reasonably clear.

      Amcrest atc-1201 12 megapixel trail camera – easy to use – auto motion detection – excellent photos – recommended. The amcrest atc-1201 12 megapixel trail camera is a blast to play with and use; it is easy to setup and we would recommend it to others looking to purchase this type of device in this fairly affordable price range. There certainly are better cameras available for a much higher price, and the trade-off would be worth it to us. In order to use this camera, you need for have a standard sd card (up to 32gb) and eight aa batteries. Since we had a 16gb sd card available and a good supply of aas in hand, we loaded the sd card into the camera and put the main 4 aas into the camera and the additional backup 4 aas into the pack. These additional 4 aas in the battery pack are not needed to run the camera but they do add additional capacity so thatthe camera would be able to operate longer if you needed it too. The next thing we did was pick a spot along the creek that runs through our property, and we setup the camera on the base of a tree, positioned about 2 feet off the ground. Running the strap around the tree and through and tightening it in place was not difficult to do, and it held the camera and base nicely in place. We set it up about 5pm and tossed a few remnants from an old bag of dog food out in front of the camera. End result: raccoons, squirrels, birds and even a few possums.

    I can only give it 4 star at the moment as the weather has been to bad to give it a good test. Looks good and the remote is really useful. Only down side is you have to undo the base to set up and switch on and of which is a little awkward, delivery service was prompt.

      I bought this to record the wild hedgehogs that come into my garden together with my 2 rescues. The camera and video quality is excellent, both at night and during the day. Its quick and easy to set up, my only comment is that the off, test, on button can be a bit fiddly if you have the camera mounted on a tripod that you want to keep in a particular position (and its only for this reason i’ve given it 4 stars). You need to put onto test to line up and show where you want to record, then tilt the camera back to turn on and then lock into place. But a bit of use and you get the hang of it. I did have a problem with the first one i bought, foscam replaced this quickly and efficiently and reimbursed me the return postage. I did a lot of research on wildlife / trail camera and found amazon us had many more reviews than the uk which helped me make my decision. I would have no hesitation recommending.
