Primos Proof Cam 02/August 16, 2017
Manufacturer model #: 64055.
The Proof Cam 02 is the next unit I will be testing in this year’s Proof cam line up, notated as “Gen 2”. If you head to the store to buy one make sure you see the Gen 2 or check the model number as it is very similar to previous models with the same name. This is a relatively small camera with a front face wrapped in a darker camo pattern, which I prefer, while the back is solid green color. On the front is an LED array that encircles the camera lens. The LED array is black in appearance even though this is definitely a red flash camera. Present is the python strap around the front of the camera which in my opinion is a good design for those who do not want to spring for the steel lock box but want better than average security. This design at least keeps someone from opening the camera and tinkering with it or removing the SD card. It is a better design for the Python in my opinion. This is not a new design and I am glad the designers kept this feature. The bottom of the unit supports an external battery port and a threaded insert for mounting while the back/sides offer a strap slot. I have a small complaint about the strap slots because I can’t use my CustomOne Enterprises adjustable mount with this camera.
Like the Proof Cam 01, this unit uses switches to change its settings. all you do upfront is set the date and time once and you are off to the races. The tiny screen provides status information and picture count. The screen and the switch panel are lighted but the buttons are not. Better take a flashlight with you.
This little camera offers everything the average consumer needs in a camera with an easy to use interface. i had the camera up and running quickly.
