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 Primos Proof cam 03 has that familiar green color scheme on the inside while the outside has a greenish camo pattern. The IR array is positioned around the camera lens in 4 sections consisting of 60 leds in total.
The camera supports 8 AA batteries making it economical to run. The bottom of the camera has a tripod insert with the 12V DC power IN port on the bottom.
For mounting there are strap slots on the rear and a python through hole across the front which is not a new feature but does provide better than average security. There is no substitute for a lock box.
The camera is documented as a 12MP camera with multiple photo resolution settings and two video settings including a 720p HD setting. The camera does not record audio. A Time lapse is supported. The delay setting has 6 values from 3s to 30 minutes. Set up was very easy as it is a matter of flipping a few switches.
