This camera is very similar in size to previous HD Max models tested but the look is new this year with an industrial feel to it. I like it. The camera is a black flash camera using 12 AA batteries and claims of one year battery life. It records photos and video with video resolutions up 1080p with audio.
The camera uses that trademark brown which in my opinion hides as well as camo on the pine trees we have here in Georgia.
Another noticeable change is the latch mechanism which I feel is an improvement as well. If feels well constructed and should provide better service than those small latches used on other models. It provides easy one hand operation.
The honey comb mesh on the led array helps reduce that glare from the lens array plastic cover. This is also a nice feature.
For mounting and security there is a strap slot on the back that combines a python through port as well as threaded insert. I would not trust this and get a lock box.
Dark room tests reveal an invisible black flash, and a no filter clunk.
Today we have a constant light drizzle so I put the camera on the trigger test bench and captured those results. The trigger with out flash came in at 0.18s and with flash at .28s. The video trigger time is right at 1.98s.
These are great trigger times. If we find the picture quality is good day and night this will be a hard camera to beat.
With the trigger times we got on this camera I expect those ports around the front are exhaust pipes to let the exhaust out.
