This camera appears the same as the camera we have tested in previous years. As this is a popular mini-camera we will run it through the paces for reference. One of the most noticeable differences this year is the change from a round pir sensor to the rectangular wide angle lens. You will probably still want to peal off that sticker on the front.
The camera runs on 8 AA batteries and settings are changed using the switches which means quick and easy setup in the field. The python through design provides better than average security without a lock box.
The sensing tests revealed detection to 50 feet at 38 degrees. The IR filter switches twice per day and makes a small click. Theoretically this will occur twice a day rather than on every photo.
The day and night range tests reveal a moderate degree of fuzziness.
