The Outfitter LED White Flash camera runs on 8 AA batteries that are inserted in the back of the camera while the camera is in the front door. The controls and setup menus are all very familiar and did not require reading the manual.. This entry into scouting cameras by Cabelas has also created some buzz on our forum since it is a proprietary design with some innovative features which include LED White Flash.
I believe it is safe to say that this is a Boly Media Corporation design since the info strip and photo meta data indicate this. The camera thus has a long heritage sprouting from lines of cameras starting with the ScoutGuard. The camo combined with the textured face and led layout give this camera a unique look and should be able to blend in and hide well.
This camera uses LEDS to produce a full spectrum white flash at night providing color photos and videos at night. In addition the video mode supports 720p HD video with audio recording.
For security this camera provides a python through hole in the body of the camera that in my opinion is more secure than the type that has a thin flap holding it on top of the camera that we have seen in many manufacturers. Hopefully the 3rd party market will supply lock boxes for this new line of cameras.
Trigger testing and day range are completed and the trigger times are respectable and under 1 second. Video tests show that it also records sound with the video clips.
Please keep in mind that in north Georgia it now rains almost every day. Finding some clear dry weather is likely to be difficult so take this into account when evaluating the photos. It is WET here
