Wildlife Camera Recommendations

I am after a wildlife camera but don't want to spend a fortune in case it disappears, anyone tried the cheap ones with success?

Re: Wildlife Camera Recommendations

Hi, I've been using a trail camera, good quality video capture with night vision (IR).
£55 - Hongc WiFi Wildlife Camera 20MP 1296P-Bluetooth Trail on Amazon
Dont forget to buy a high or max endurance mem card or it will fail after heavy usage, 32gb is enough,

They all drink batteries 8 x AA for this model.
Tried to find a daytime video but Dropbox is not user friendly.

Re: Wildlife Camera Recommendations

That looks interesting, think I’ll get a cheap one and mount it near my car to find out what makes the muddy footprints all over the bonnet and roof, either a cat or fox?

Re: Wildlife Camera Recommendations

Looks good, can you use rechargeable batteries with these?

I do even though instructions say don't, although they are 2800mAh NiMH and don't last quite as long as normal ones, its cheaper in the long run but they do last 4/5 days left on continually. They can't be charged in the camera but separately in a charger.
