Product Description

Product Description

Amazon UK are pleased to offer you the Ltl Acorn 5210A Wildlife Trail Camera Trap with the 940nm covert “no glow” infrared array.

The Acorn 5210A is a portable infrared trail camera, it offers long running time, VGA video resolution & 12MP photos (interpolated from 5MP).

Often known as a game camera, scouting camera, hunting camera or wildlife camera trap - this device is also used extensively for security surveillance in remote areas where connection to mains power is not possible.

Thanks to the built in infrared, it can capture video footage & photos in complete darkness or daylight and will only do so when motion is detected as it also has 3 built in motion/heat sensors.

The camera holds 4 AA batteries as standard, which can give you running time of up to 3 months. However, this can be increased to up to 6 months using the additional four battery slots in the back of the camera.

The Acorn 5210A can take stills of 12MP (interpolated from 5MP) quality or record video at 640x480 resolution. Not only this but the Acorn 5210A Trail Camera also has the superb prep motion sensors. These prep are in addition to the main central sensor and are designed so that the camera is triggered as movement is detected outside the actual lens view - this prepares the camera in advance so that it is ready to shoot as the subject moves into the lens view, meaning you get optimum recorded footage of the animal or subject.

The Acorn 5210A has password protection, 16G max SD card storage (SD card not supplied), time & date stamping, timer recording (to allow you to set the camera to only activate between certain times of day or night) and even a timelapse feature that allows you to set the camera to take a photo at set intervals regardless of whether any movement has been detected.

The amazing thing is that this feature packed trail camera comes in a palm size casing of just 14cmx8cmx6cm

Also available is the Acorn 5210A but with the standard 850nm infrared array. Please note, the 940nm infrared frequency offers around 30% less beam strength but does not give off the feint red glow (when in operation) that the standard 850nm version does.

Buying directly from Amazon themselves (and not from other sellers listing on Amazon) guarantees you the 100% genuine Ltl Acorn camera, there are many clones on the market today that look similar but use inferior components.

If you buy from Amazon themselves you will also be given access to extra information and quick start guide web pages plus a direct customer support email contact from the main Ltl Acorn distributor in the UK – Pakatak Ltd. This is a free email support service offered by Pakatak Ltd to Amazon UK customers – please note however, your warranty is with your retailer.

Please note, the following rechargeable batteries are strongly recommended and work well with the Ltl Acorn cameras: Uniross, Energizer, Eneloop. For non rechargeable batteries Maplin own brand work very well.

Duracell batteries do not seem to work well with the Ltl Acorn cameras so please avoid them.

I bought this trail camera a few months ago on the understanding that it was a genuine Ltl Acorn 5210A however several factors have now led me to believe it is COUNTERFEIT.

Firstly, although the camera in the advert images shows the Acorn logo moulded into the casing the unit I received did not. Neither the camera nor the packaging show this anywhere. Note that no manual was supplied with it, either.

Secondly, when using the date/time-stamping option on images it prefixes this data with Bestok, who appear to be another manufacturer with a product surprisingly similar to the Ltl Acorn 5210A which they call the 8210A.

Thirdly, the serial number printed on the device begins with the prefix BTK and nine digits. I believe genuine Acorn cameras use a different format.

Fourthly, when putting the camera into setup mode it should initially display the Acorn logo. The camera I received displays a world map logo and, again, no mention of Acorn anywhere.

My particular order was fulfilled by the seller LG Supply and my Amazon order number was 202-3028712-8236338.

Don't just take my word for it, though. Take a look at Ron Bury's Wildlife website where you can find a report on this also.

The first four times I used this camera I managed to film both a fox and a badger - wow! The camera uses both daylight and infra-red light at night. It can be set for still pictures of high quality, video sequences of up to a minute, or a combination of both - I find the video sequences most useful although the quality is not as good as the still picture.

I have not given five stars as I find that sometimes it captures multiple video sequences when there appears to be nothing there, or occasionally produces sequences of less than a minute. I also find the use of the camera on a tripod a bit awkward in that the tripod screw is on the base and access door of the camera, and you have to set the camera going first before fixing it to the tripod and then have a put a spindle of some sort through the supplied hole to stop the door coming open while in use. This results in a number of video sequences of you setting the camera up or taking it down. However, with a 16 or 32 gb card this is not a major problem. An on/off switch on the outside of the camera would be an improvement.

But if you simply want to see what wildlife you have in your property or elsewhere, this is a jolly good buy!

I first purchased one of these cameras about three years ago when they first appeared on the market in this country. A lot of retailers derided them a bit using the argument that I would get what I paid for, they were considerably lower in cost than some of the British and European models that were on the market at the time.

I am involved in small mammal conservation, British Bats, and wanted a camera that could be used to record their flight activities in a pen that is used to harden their flight capabilities prior to release back into the wild. Three years on I am still really pleased with the results that I am getting. The menu is simple to follow and set up and has enabled me to use the camera at odd times during the night and see the results with a date and time stamp. I have loaned it out a couple of times to other conservationists and they have gone on to purchase one. That alone, I think, says a lot for this little camera.

The additional battery pack means that I can leave it in a cage for some weeks. The sideways PIR detection doesn't seem to always work but that could be because I am using it in the confines of a pen rather than out in the open. The phot flash can also be a bit too strong in confined areas with the result that I often just get plain white photos where the flash has over exposed the area. The videos however have been first rate and have been a hit with other bat Rehabillitators. I am working on a way of reducing the flash levels for next year.

I intend getting a second camera for next year and this will be my preferred choice. A good little camera with nice features and a good price tag.

I wouldn't call this the best quality camera in terms of build quality, particularly the battery flap behind the bottom cover, and the technology behind it feels somewhat dated. However, and much more importantly, the camera works. Strapping it to a tree trunk, tripod or other object and leaving it running in our absence, it captures images or video of wildlife, prowlers or intruders, both day and night assisted by the side-facing 'prep' sensors giving a wide field of vision. It's simple to set up, does what it's supposed to and withstands torrential showers.

We've been using ours for a year, running it on rechargeable AA batteries - one set in the camera unit and a second 'backup' set in the attached battery pack fitted behind the camera.

If you have any doubts re whether the camera is for you, here's a sample video clip direct from our camera and I've uploaded a few still pics of a young roe deer to the customer images section.

I bought this cam over a year ago and for most of the first year stuck with the still photo only setting. I managed to get mediocre shots of the back halves of the local cats and a few other bits and bobs. It has really come into its own recently when I started pointing it at the entrance of a badgers' sett and having it on video mode. Since then, with something interesting at last to film, I have started to get my money's worth (I bought it when it was £150!) and have some fun footage of animals going about their business. I'll finish the review after inserting this YouTube clip, that I hope Amazon leave in...

If the link does survive, have a look at some of the other videos taken with the cam. I hope you'd agree that the camera does well in that kind of setting.

Other points:

I agree that the cover to get at the batteries and card slot is a bit flimsy, but take care and it should be ok. Battery life is good. You get slots for 4xAA in the camera itself and 4 more in the extra part. When in action at the badger sett, my 16gb card filled up before the batteries ran out. I use 8x rechargeables - a bit of an investment at the start, but worth it in the long run. The relatively low resolution seems more obvious in still shots compared to video. I also agree with other reviewers that close up stills are problematic at night with the "flash" being too bright, but there are ways to deal with that (e.g. Putting the cam further away, trying different filters over the LEDs). Make sure that you check the time and date setting after changing the batteries.
