Thread: Aldi Trail Cam review

  1. #1

    Aldi Trail Cam review

    already a post on speculation but I thought I would give my 2p on what they are like now I have them in my hands

    Size:
    smaller than expected
    nice feature as IMO some of them are too big
    runs on 8 AA batteries (included, 4 for OS and 4 for IR) too which cuts down on battery compartment

    Build:
    build quality is good, metal snap locks hold case shut on waterproof seal
    battery compartment is separate (not desperate!) and covered by clip down plate
    Plastic throughout but solid stuff even the frame for the strap to attach to trees ect
    come with a variety of fixings including nylon tension strap and a screw fitting to fix to a surface and then use a small camera style female thread in the base

    OS:
    Instruction free idiot proof operation
    Obviously designed by men and for men, ignored the booklet and dived straight in
    whizzed through the settings and menu and set it all up in a flash

    Settings/Features:
    can run Video and Camera or seperately
    choose size and number of pics
    choose length of video
    choose delay to activate and interval period
    power saving feature
    Colour screen
    AV output with cables included

    for something that is either going to get soaked and or stolen they are bang on
    Ready to go, I picked it up, put batteries and card in, set settings and dropped it off at a fox trap I have running on the way home

    will post pics, vids etc tomorrow as I hope to catch the baaastard that is stealing all my bird food red handed tonight too!

    got mine as well and echo your comments. well made and a breeze to set up. The ir flash is visible so not totally stealthy at night.

    might buy another one later on! after i find out what is having a poo in the back garden.
    ps i have spoken with my battery compartment and its said its not that desperate.

    Can you confirm how much they are to buy as Aldi is a bit of a drive for me.

    Cheers
