This is a small camera. This is a small camera. This is a small camera. The 2014 Hunten cameras are all smaller than previous year’s offerings. The Elite uses a hinged, camera in the front door design. It requires 8 AA batteries and has a small LCD screen for changing the camera settings. There is no photo viewer in this one. It has side slots for a strap and a python cable hole at the top. It supports photo, video and time lapse modes.
The set up was easy and familiar and I had this camera taking photos on the range quickly.
I managed to get some day range photos. I will get the camera on the trigger table tonight and get some night photos. I tested these cameras some months ago and held off on the reviews because I ran into some issues. Hunten informed me that improvements were made and that replacements would be supplied. I am now testing the latest cameras and I do see some issues like the fuzzy/cloudy day time photos. It is obvious that the camera uses a wide angle lens.
Tonight I managed to capture some range pictures. They are different. The flash definitely reaches 60 to 70 feet. However, there is poor detail in the photos. Sensing was 50+ feet at 78 degrees.
I left the camera deployed all afternoon and managed to get a few day time photos.
