Because this is not a Wi-Fi device, unfortunately, you are not allowed to view the live images while you are in the field. You have to get the SD card first and plug it in your laptop to see what you had captured so far.

Aside from that, the settings for video mode is insufficient. You are not allowed to set the time duration for the video. You should make sure that you choose a very safe place to put your camera because the screen can be quite sensitive.

There are some reports from the customers claiming that the camera’s screen went dead after exposure to harsh elements of nature in just a few weeks.

The quality issue of the screen will require the hunter to look for the perfect place to hide the camera in the forest—the one that can protect it from extreme sunlight and rain but provides the best angle in case wild animals roam around.

When the camera tends to capture a photo, a red light will keep on blinking. This red light indication may attract the thieves in the forest. Therefore, you should disable it before you place it in the field.

However, the settings for disabling the red light is still not found by most of the users so you might want to address it to the manufacturer or just only cover the red light with a black electrical tape for the meantime.


It is a great camera for a reasonable price. It’s one of the trail cameras that every hunter should own. Its own set of advantages and disadvantages makes it convenient to have in the field and thereby improving your predator hunting skills.

If you don’t mind the minimal flaws of the camera, it is something worth investing regardless if you are going to use it as a deer hunting trail camera or a home CCTV camera.
