I pulled out two more cameras this morning from the queue of cameras waiting for review.  These are the Bushnell Trophy cam HD Aggressor brown model 119776 and the Primos Proof cam 03.  both of these cameras are mini cameras that fit in your palm.  Primos and Bushnell are brands promoted by the same holding company.  I thought I might look for similarities but both brands appear to hold on to a past heritage with user interface and color.

The Bushnell Aggressor has a truly “aggressive” look with its industrial looking moldings in its traditional Bushnell brown.  The camera has a clasp that operates easily with one hand. Although the camera closes tightly, it does not feel as tight as you would expect when closing the latch.

The camera supports 8 AA batteries making it economical to run.  The bottom and rear of the camera has a tripod insert with the DC power IN port on the bootom.

For mounting there are strap slots on the rear that combine a python through hole.  This is not very good security and there is no substitute for a lock box.

The camera is documented as a 14MP camera with multiple photo resolution settings and several video settings up to 1080p HD.  Audio will also be captured in video mode but is optional.  There is also a hybrid mode for photo and video.  Time lapse is supported and called Field Scan mode.  There are two settings for flash intensity as well. The delay setting is configurable from 1 second to 60 minutes.  Set up was very easy and familiar. Without reading the book programming was done in 1 minute.

The image aspect ratio can be set for 4:3 (full) or 16:9 (wide).
