Camping and Outdoors April 3, 2022
Spring is in the air! And for all you people that love nature but frankly don’t have the time to appreciate it in all its unfettered glory (let’s be honest – only the most dedicated of us is going to spend all night hidden in the undergrowth trying to snap pics of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle at the crack of dawn…) there are products like this Trail Cam from BlazeVideo.
Boasting an impressive 32 Megapixel photo resolution (decent phone these days goes up to about 16) and a nice crisp 1296p video image (most car dashcams are 1080p as a point of reference here) the BlazeVideo Trail Cam also has a nice, wide 120 degree angle (detection and viewing) along with distortion correction technology and has a 0.1 second trigger time. In layman’s terms, all that above means that anything in the lens of the camera will be captured and captured well, giving you plenty of amazing pictures and videos of nature at it’s best.
There are 3 modes: Picture only, video only and a combo of the two and it has a long battery life of about 8 months with 8 AA batteries when in standby mode. The motion tracker means it won’t switch on until needed and, best of all, you don’t need to keep going back all the time – it has a free app that you can connect to once you’re in wi-fi range to download everything. If you want to set up the Trail Cam further away from home, it also supports an SDHC SD Card of up to 512GB to record months of footage. The only issue with this is the fact that it will only work with the Smart Phone App, you won’t be able to connect to your home networks so be warned! RRP £75.81
