Thread: Aldi Maginon Trail Cam

  1. #1

    Aldi Maginon Trail Cam

    I see that Aldi in Ireland will be offering their trail cam from Sunday 21st June for eu 89.99. (Thats £64.50 ). I can't do better than that on Amazon when currency conversion is taken into account. Admittedly it's not 'no glow'.
    I am using last years model which I was sent as a replacement for a 2013 (eu 99.99) model that gave trouble this spring. I am very happy with its performance as you can see from the attached pic of a fat low ground Sika stag.
    As Aldi UK tends to be a couple of weeks ahead of us, have any SD members already tried this years camera model?

    Thanks

    This looks to be the same model as they sold last year... and the two I bought were rubbish.

    I wasn't alone in my disappointment. Search the site for the relevant threads and you'll see what the problems were.

    1 second is a long time for triggering, but anything a lot shorter might result in hundreds of unwanted pictures. I set my Bushnells facing the trails at an angle and quite often only get the tail-end of a vehicle that has passed at c5mph. I get the number plate as they leave though. Anyone walking, is captured OK. Videos in each case.

    I have three of them

    all worked very well
    one recently flooded as I had bent the seal over inadvertently when closing
    all covered by 3 year warranty and it is going back

    other two are in almost permanent use

    agree on the trigger times
    I sometimes get 3 photos and a video of not so much!
    but for £70 they are a bargain

    And for the cost of all 3, you would only get 1 Bushnel.

    No idea of how good these are but my wife has a Maginon digital camera and it's very good admittedly it cost considerably more than these Trail Cams.
