Once you’ve mounted the camera, it will automatically send images and video footage to your phone or email address each time it is triggered, meaning that you don’t have to remove the SD card and transfer data manually to a laptop before discovering what (or who) it has captured.

Beyond its cellular connectivity, what really sets this camera apart from its competitors is its exceptional nighttime performance, with its full-HD night vision producing images of far superior quality and clarity to those captured by lower-priced models of camera that use infrared night vision.  The multiple video and photo settings on this unit also allow you to match the camera’s configurations to your goals, with a “time-lapse” feature allowing you to receive photos every 3 minutes, the “timer” feature allowing you to capture footage only during certain time frames, and “standard shooting” relaying footage to your phone only when the device’s sensors are triggered by motion within the detection range.

Other admirable features or capacities this device boasts include a super-speedy 0.4-second trigger time, 110-degree-angle lens, and 65-foot detection range. As an added bonus, the XP 3G is also sold as a package that includes a SIMHero SIM card and a 32GB memory card.

Best Budget Trail Camera
Victure HC300 Trail Camera
An incredibly robust, high-resolution trail camera that takes razor-sharp images and packs plenty of features typically only found in far pricier models.

If a high-resolution camera with all the attributes and features included on many models that cost twice as much sounds like it might be your thing, then the Victure HC300 Trail Camera is one you should be expediting to the very top of your shortlist.

This lightweight, robust little camera is a great choice for those looking for a device that offers excellent image quality and a full array of user-friendly features but who aren’t prepared to fork out the extra few hundred dollars that might be required to get their hands on a trail camera will cellular connectivity. It offers 20MP camera resolution, 1080P HD video with sound, 3 shooting modes, 38 pcs no-glow LEDs, and a trigger time of only 0.3 seconds. It also has a 2″ viewing screen and is housed inside a very robust “clamshell” case with rubber seals rated to IP66, meaning it’s good to go in all weather conditions.

What we like most about this device, however, is the highly intuitive, fuss-free interface and the back-lit keyboard that makes adjusting settings a cinch even at night and when wearing gloves. In terms of user-friendliness, they don’t come much better than this…

The only notable downside to this camera is its lack of remote control functionality—something that’s highly forgivable given its bargain price and entirely compensated for by the camera’s excellent image quality and ease of use.

It might not be the cheapest model out there, but the Creative XP 4G Cellular Trail Camera offers more than enough in the way of practicality, convenience, and overall performance to make it worth every penny of added expense.

This trail camera is one of few currently on the market that offers 4G connectivity, which is roughly 10 times faster than 3G and so allows you to transfer data and receive images or video footage to your email address or phone almost as soon as they are recorded.

But to list the Creative XP’s 4G connectivity alone as the most endearing of its features would be to do it a disservice. This camera also has a 12-megapixel camera, records full HD 1080P video with sound, and boasts a lightning-fast trigger speed of 0.35 seconds. It uses 56pc no-glow infrared LED lights for outstanding nighttime performance and a wide dynamic lens capable of capturing subjects within an impressive 110-degree radius.

Well, the Creative XP’s 12-megapixel resolution may be a little on the low side for buyers who are particularly fussy about image quality and its lack of remote control is sure to irk those who’d prefer not to have to return to the device each time they need to adjust settings. These small exceptions aside, however, this camera’s a great choice for anyone keen to upgrade their surveillance with the aid of high-speed cellular connectivity.

A few other devices and pieces of kit can come in mightily handy on backcountry surveillance trips. The most important of these are night vision devices and binoculars. Check out our guides to the Best Night Vision Devices and Best Binoculars to find the best models for your hunting, scouting, or wildlife surveillance trips in 2020!

Who Should Buy a Trail Camera

Trail cameras have many potential applications but are most commonly used for scouting, hunting, wildlife research, and surveillance purposes. They allow hunters, photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts alike to see which animals or birds are passing their feeders or scouting locations and know at which time they do so, meaning they’re a great tool to have for those keen to upgrade their surveillance or wildlife watching experience.

Trail cameras are also a good alternative to standard home security cameras as most models use no-glow LEDs that won’t alert intruders to their presence and more advanced models with cellular or WiFi connectivity can also relay images or footage directly to your phone or computer by email or MMS whenever the sensor is triggered.

Important Features to Consider

A trail camera should do several things well. Here’s what to consider when selecting a trail camera for your wildlife surveillance, hunting, or security needs:

  • Image and video resolution. As with any type of camera, the quality of the images and video footage a trail camera offers depends largely on the resolution. Resolution is measured in megapixels and, as a general rule, the higher the megapixel count, the better the picture quality will be. Most trail cameras offer image resolution in the 5 to 20-megapixel range and, as you might have guessed, the more megapixels a camera packs, the more expensive the model is likely to be. The resolution you require will ultimately depend on how you plan on using the camera and how clear you need images to be, with low-resolution models (5 MP to 12MP) being adequate for basic surveillance and high-resolution models (14MP to 20MP) a better bet for those for whom detail and clear, precise imaging is a priority.
  • Range. The range of a trail camera refers to the distance at which its motion sensors are able to detect movement. Once movement is detected, the camera is triggered and, depending on settings, will either begin recording video or capture a series of images. If using the camera in a more enclosed environment such as your yard or around your home, the range isn’t likely to be such a big issue, but for hunting and wildlife surveillance purposes a more extensive range ensures you maximize your chances of capturing any visitors to your chosen surveillance area. Most models on the market offer a detection range of 40 to 100 feet. For home security, cameras with a detection range at the lower end of the scale will most probably be more than adequate, but for backcountry surveillance and scouting we recommend opting for a model with a range of at least 65 feet.
  • Trigger speed. This refers to the time it takes for a camera to “wake up” and capture images or footage after the motion sensor has been triggered. This feature is of particular importance because fast-moving wildlife can easily move out of the image frame by the time the camera starts shooting if the trigger speed is too slow.
    • The range of trigger speeds offered by models of trail camera currently varies from just over a tenth of a second to around 1.5 seconds, with most mid-range cameras offer trigger speeds of 0.3 to 0.7 seconds. While this difference may seem negligible, it could mean the difference between capturing a moving target and not, particularly if the angle of the lens used on the camera is at the narrower end of the scale (60 to 90 degrees as opposed to 90 to 120 degrees).
  • Viewing screen. An image preview screen is beneficial for two reasons. First up, it lets you check the images or footage that you have recorded on the spot—that is, without removing the memory card or plugging it into a computer. Secondly, it allows you to check your angles and range by taking test images, which will ensure that you are capturing the desired area before leaving the camera in place.
  • Wireless or cellular? One of the most important recent advances in trail camera technology—and the one that has sparked something of a renaissance in both their popularity and sales worldwide—has been the advent models that use WiFi and cellular connectivity. These game-changing functions allow users to adjust settings and view images and footage from a remote device (your phone or laptop) and receive real-time updates whenever the camera’s sensors are triggered. There are, however, significant differences between the two types of cameras. Because WiFi models require a WiFi connection to operate, they are limited to use in more residential areas, whereas cellular game cameras use an activated SIM card and can send images and footage to your phone via text or e-mail from anywhere with 3G or 4G coverage. Naturally, the above means that for hunting, wildlife surveillance, and other backcountry purposes, a cellular trail camera is the only way to go. If, however, you are a homeowner and plan on using your trail camera only in the vicinity of your home for security purposes, then a WiFi model will save you both the initial expense of purchasing a cellular model and the added, ongoing expense of a data plan.
  • LED type. The infrared LEDs on a trail camera provide the illumination needed to capture clear images at night. Generally speaking, these come in two types: standard or low-glow. Standard LEDs typically emit a small flash when triggered, which can scare away wildlife. Low-glow LEDs, on the other hand, usually have a shorter range than standard LEDs but do not produce any flash when triggered, meaning they are much more likely to capture subjects within the shooting frame.
  • Water and dust resistance. In any type of camera, water and dust resistance are quantified by IP (Ingress Protection) ratings, which range from IP00 (no protection) to IP69 (maximum protection). The first digit in this rating refers to the device’s intrusion protection (against dust, dirt, mud, etc.) and the second to its moisture protection. Most trail cameras offer IP ratings in the IP54 to IP67 range. While cameras at both the lower and upper end of this scale will provide more than enough resistance to deal with heavy rain showers and extremely dusty conditions, if you plan on leaving your camera for extended periods of time in more extreme conditions (snow, torrential rain, arid environments with higher exposure to dust), we recommend opting for a model of camera with a minimum rating of IP66.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a trail camera and how does it work?

While there are several categories of trail camera—aka “game” camera—on the market, most models bear certain characteristics or functions in common that differentiate them from standard cameras.

For starters, most models of trail camera are mounted by way of straps or clips to a tree or other immovable fixture and use motion detection—rather than a human finger (!)—to activate the lens aperture. This means that whenever anything or anyone enters the device’s detection range, the device is automatically activated and begins shooting.

Trail cameras also typically have nighttime shooting capabilities, using infrared LEDs to illuminate subjects within their detection range while capturing images or footage. More recent models of trail cameras include WiFi and/or cellular connectivity, which allows users to retrieve data on their phone or laptop and without having to physically retrieve the SD card to download images manually.

What is the difference between a game camera and a trail camera?

The terms “game camera” and “trail camera” are used interchangeably and refer to the same type of product.

Do trail cameras need WiFi?

One of the more recent developments trail camera technology has been the inclusion of WiFi and cellular functionality. Both of these relay images from the camera to your laptop or phone, meaning you don’t have to retrieve the camera before viewing images or footage. While not a necessity, this feature is, of course, very user-friendly and highly convenient, but can also add significantly to the cost of the device, particularly in the case of cellular trail cameras.

Can trail cameras be used for home security?

One of the main attractions of trail cameras is their versatility and suitability for use in a wide range of environments and scenarios. At home, a trail camera can be mounted to a tree or building and will record images whenever an intruder arrives within the camera’s capture range. When the camera’s motion sensors detect movement, the camera automatically snaps a series of photos or begins recording video for a preset duration. All videos and photos are time-stamped, so you’ll also know exactly when any intruder or visitor arrived.

Some models of trail camera can also be configured to relay image and video captures to your phone in real-time, meaning you don’t have to go to the trouble of dismounting your camera to discover who/what triggered the sensor and can see what’s going on in your yard from the safety of your home. Finally, most trail cameras are made to withstand the elements, so you can mount yours outside without having to worry about it being damaged by rain or snow.
