These cameras are sometimes used by hunters but for those of us who'd rather watch than shoot, the compact size, 5 ½ x 3 ½ x 2 ½ inches make it perfect for observing the wildlife we share our gardens with after dark. With its 'Time Lapse' setting, it also can be used to observe natural events like flowering. In addition, it can serve as a motion-triggered security camera for home, office, or community surveillance.

We love the camera now. Thanks very much. Our Hedgehog is being videoed many times excellently. Not much wildlife here otherwise.
The batteries & charger are also very good & well recommended as you advised.
Not really but a slow start, once you understand how the camera operates it's all good.
Thanks very much for all your help & advice Michelle.

Easy to use as a first camera. Good clear pictures. Ordering the camera was easy and it arrived promptly.
None I have found.

Great camera, easy to use, reliable.
The HD video mode (infrared) has too low a frame rate per second which makes the image appear with motion blur, so I end up using the 720p resolution. Still some motion blur, but good enough. But for the price, it is as expected, definitely good enough for garden watch.

Super little camera and we have already had pictures confirming our concerns about what wildlife was in our garden at night - badgers!!!

Works fine - disappointing sightings but that is not the fault of the camera!
Difficult to turn on and off when mounted outside.
We have a good feeling you'll like these products...
