Cuddeback IR Plus Review
The Cuddeback IR Plus camera comes with an 8 megapixel image sensor. The camera also uses infra-red technology to power its night-time efforts. With a ½ seconds trigger speed, the camera is not the fastest from Cuddeback but it is still above the market average. The truth is that not every user prefers a high megapixel camera due to night photos. More light usually comes with fewer megapixels. This is because the pixels are bigger and they can capture more light in extreme conditions.

The camera comes with some of the best features from Cuddeback. While it may seem that the sensor is a step down from the top models of the manufacturer, it is actually aimed at the night performance. This means the bigger pixels in the sensor will gather more light, which will result in more brightness in the photos taking during the night.
The camera also uses an imprint for each photo. It adds data such as the date, time or even the moon phase to your photo. This will make it easier to organize the photos and analyze the habits of the animals.
The camera comes with a ½ seconds triggering speed. This makes it one of the fastest cameras on the market. Although it`s not Cuddebacks fastest camera, it still manages to deliver some of the best results in term of speed. The recovery speed is also decent. It ranges from 1 to 2 seconds and it is satisfying fro most users.
But you can also record videos with the camera. The videos Cuddeback offers range from 10 to 30 seconds intervals. They are also among the best quality videos you can record with the devices on the market.
In terms of design, the camera works fantastic for the average user. Not only is it easy to mount but it can also be easily detachable. As the camera comes with the Genius mount system, you are able to just slide the camera into position when you need to. You will need to access the camera to retrieve the SD memory card. But you will also access the camera when you change the batteries, every 6 months. Before you change the batteries, you need to know that you can shoot up to 10.000 images with the device.
