The Victure Trail Game Camera is an efficient little camera that comes at a reasonable, budget-friendly price. At the same time, for such a low cost, you receive various features and functions. In this review, we will take a look at them.
Taking a quick look at the Victure Trail Game Camera
Here is a brief overview of this trail cam’s best features and what might be considered drawbacks for some users:
- Low-glow light at night
- Silent operations
- Withstands severe weather conditions
- Password-protected SD
- Option to add a lock
- Comes with a mini tripod
- Poorly written instructions
- Shorter detection range (30-50 feet)
- Lower resolution than advertised
EVALUATING PERFORMANCE AND VERSATILITY
When it comes to trail game cameras, what people look for the most is the picture-taking modes. This model will operate silently, and it will emit just a very soft, almost invisible LED light. Thus, it will not disturb passing animals or people. However, the quality of the pictures is not the highest it can be. Although the manufacturer states that the resolution of the photos is 12MP, we have discovered that it is 5MP rendered to larger file size.
Apart from this issue, the camera will deliver tasks as desired. You can mount it on a tree or your house for surveillance and observation purposes. It can detect objects in a range between 30 to 50 feet.
EASE OF USE, BATTERY LIFE, AND CONSTRUCTION
Unfortunately, the instructions of this device are poorly written and not clear enough. Thankfully, once you start using it, you will quickly get the hang of the menu. To do that, you will first need 8 AA batteries. Another way to supply the camera with power is by purchasing a rechargeable lithium battery. Note, however, that lithium is suitable only when the temperature is low.
The camera is waterproof and capable of withstanding severe weather conditions, including rainstorms. That does not mean that it can be submerged in water. Otherwise, you risk damaging the camera. The compact design makes this device perfect for hunters, house owners, and wildlife observers.
What we liked the most about the Victure Trail Game Camera, was the safety features. You can protect the material on your SD card by inserting a password. Thus, the images and videos will be accessed solely by you. The other measure to ensure the safety of the camera is the option to add a lock, like a small master lock eye hole.
Another advantage of this camera is that it emits a very soft LED glow which will be invisible to the naked eye. Thus, it will not scare away animals or give away the location of the camera to intruders.
WARRANTY AND POSSIBLE DRAWBACKS
Once you purchase the camera, you enter a 12-month warranty period where you can benefit from charge-free repairs. If you have further questions, you can contact the company for a more thorough explanation.
One of our concerns with this product is that the quality of the pictures is not very high. Although the description advertises a 12MP resolution, the actual number is 5MP. The detection range is also not very wide, covering a distance between 30 and 50 feet. We found the instructions to be unclear and confusing to follow.
SUMMING UP OUR THOUGHTS
To conclude this review, we must say that although we encountered some issues, the Victure Trail Game Camera offers some useful features at a lower price. We liked the practical design of this device. The manufacturer has ensured the security of the camera for your peace of mind. The pictures might be of lower resolution, but the amount of details they provide is acceptable. Overall, whether this camera will suit you or not depends on the depth of observation you want to achieve.
