Thread: aldi trail cameras

    aldi trail cameras

    Hi all
    Purchased two trail cameras from aldi a couple of months ago but both seem to suffer from whats like a filter behind the main lense slipping to the side this seems to affec the picture quality.
    Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with them please ?
    Kind regards

    The filter is supposed to move, I thought mine was broken when I first saw it.

    I think-
    the filter is a IR filter which goes in front if the lens in daytime so that the camera sensor doesn't see ir which would ruin the footage (infrared light focuses at different lengths than visable light)
    ​at night it moves out the way so that the infrared LEDs can brighten up the image

    Went into my local Aldi and seem to have missed the boat on these.

    that sounds like a really expensive design.......for the product

    digital IR cameras can show normal footage in daylight with relatively standard chips

    is there a mechanism attached to the filter to move it?

    Been very pleased with mine - Yes, filter flips out the way automatically when not needed. Here's a night clip of the badgers at the bottom of my garden.

    So what causes the inner lens to move then please as both mine seem to be in the half covered position. .. think it maybe a phone call on Tuesday..

    I thought the same with mine when I bought it. It seems that the filter is uncontrolled when the camera is off. I think you can turn it on and then cover the lens and sensor and the mechanism will operate.

    I haven't got mine here to check, but worth a look if you haven't already
