Day-time stills badly under-exposed.
I tried this camera using in local woodland and the daytime pictures were so under-exposed some were almost black. I sent the camera back and Amazon promptly sent a replacement. I did walk-tests with the camera inside and outside a garage entrance to control extraneous light, but pointing at the same view outside. With the camera outside the pictures were under-exposed but exposure was ok when the camera was inside the garage entrance. Night-time pictures were ok. I did not try video.
The camera takes a minimum of 4xAA batteries but can hold 8. I tried 4 rechargeables, then 8. With 8 newly-charged batteries, the exposure of daytime stills was ok initially, but very soon they became under-exposed again. I tried 8xAA Lithium as recommended by Bushnell and found the same problem with under-exposure of daytime stills. To check that this was not just a problem with dull light or glare I tried mounting the camera between 2 other trail cameras of different makes (one cheaper, one more expensive), pointing at a bird feeder. The bushnell pictures were ALL under-exposed as compared with those from the other 2 trail cameras.
I tried using photo editing software to lighten the under-exposed pictures. This works ok for slightly under-exposed images but there is a serious loss of detail with badly under-exposed ones. Either way, it's very time-consuming if you have captured a lot of images, and should not be necessary. If you want wildlife monitoring or survey of animals that are not exclusively nocturnal, it's hopeless. If you want photos of wildlife it's not up to the job either. I am sending it back and asking for a refund.
Having experienced this problem I searched and found reviews or posts that report the same issue with Natureview HD models (e.g. see Birding Frontiers). I also looked at daytime stills from Bushnell trail cameras posted on a web site for a mammal survey project in County Durham, UK. Some of these were ok but a substantial number were under-exposed. Of the latter some were so dark that no detail or animals could be seen without editing the image.
Either I was very unlucky to have 2 duds or Bushnell, we have a problem.
shame they didn’t put a sd card slot in the viewer so it was universal. The battery compartments poorly thought out, also the unprotected power cable connecting the front to back free hanging inside the unit is eventually going to break or get caught. Ive sent mine back to Bushnell UK see if they can find a fault, after years of making these things you'd think they'd get it right.
I think there is a slight delay from being triggered as we have seen the back end of a deer a couple of times and sometimes we cannot see what triggered it.
I like the attachment you can use to show the field of view when you set it up. We use this to map left and right so we know where to put the food and to ensure we keep it pointed more to the ground. We have used it at the bird feeder too and it triggered well and we had our best audio. Generally though the audio is limited but that is fine for our use.
