The 0.7 second trigger time of the Natureview HD Live View Trail Camera from Bushnell makes it well-suited to getting images of animals on the move. Interchangeable lenses let you monitor a trail like a traditional game camera, or take pictures as close as 25 and 46 cm depending on the lens you choose. These lenses are a solid choice for taking shots at a bird feeder or similar area.
Stills are taken in 14MP resolution, while video features 1080p in clips from 5 to 60 seconds with audio recording. Hybrid mode takes a still picture and follows it up with a video clip so you don't have to choose between one or the other to help pattern the animals you are pursuing. A passive infrared (PIR) sensor uses changes in temperature as well as motion to trigger the near-invisible 32-LED flash to get shots even at night. Field Scan Time-Lapse Technology lets you capture images at pre-set times and intervals from 1 to 60 minutes. Burst mode takes up to 3 images per triggering event to get an Idaea of which way an animal is headed.
The Natureview HD accepts SD/SDHC memory cards up to 32GB, which are available separately. It runs on 12 AA batteries, which also must be purchased separately. An adjustable webbing strap is included for mounting the camera to a tree, and there is a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for attaching a tripod. It is water/weather-resistant to ensure durability over extended periods of outdoor use.
Benefit from 14MP resolution for sharp still photos
Passive infrared motion-activated sensor with rapid 0.7-sec trigger speed ensures that shots are not missed. This sensor detects the changes in temperature that occur when subjects move, and captures images in response. It has adjustable sensitivity with high, medium, low and automatic options. In time-lapse mode, the motion trigger is still active, so the camera will capture images whenever triggered by movement, even if it's in between the scheduled time-lapse shots.
Two included lenses let you take pictures as close as 25 and 46 cm from the lens so you can get images from places like bird feeders.
