The performance of the camera is at the level fans of the manufacturer expected. The camera is capable of recording photos and videos and you won’t have to worry about storage. This is due to the fact that it works with both the SD and SDHC memory cards and is one of the top options users are looking for when it comes to managing the larger files of HD videos.
The main drawback of the camera comes with its infrared night vision which works up to 60 feet. The distance can be somewhat comparable to what you can find on the market. But it doesn`t compare to the other features of the camera. This means that it can be a good option for short distances on trails. You should thus not aim to use it in large open spaces.
The design of the camera is based on the same characteristics of traditional trail cameras but it does come with a great camouflage look.

You will also be able to record more images which means you`ll need more storage options. This is why one of the top characteristics of the camera is that it manages to offer SD and SDHC memory card slots which are made for optimum performance with large files such as the HD videos.

But with weather sealing and a workability even in extreme temperatures, it represents a solid option for people looking to get a good camera which can be used for a few years and which can also cover HD video recording.
