Trail cameras have come leaps and bounds from their inception, with the ability to link directly to cellphones, allowing you to see what’s moving through the camera’s area when at work, on vacation, or anywhere else. There are a plethora of great cameras on the market today as well, and to someone looking for new cameras for their scouting arsenal, the choices can become overwhelming. In this article, we will look at some of the best cameras to choose from in 2021.
The GoLive by Spartan is a sleek camera that allows you to view the area it covers in real-time, either via photo or live-feed video.
Not only does this change the game for viewing deer or your game animal of choice in real-time in areas like fields or food plots, but it’s also great for security use as well, watching over your hunting cabin, home, or property in general.
This camera has some amazing features, such as:
- Internal and rechargeable lithium-ion battery
- High definition video and short photo recovery time
- Solar power connection
- Built-in microphone for audio recording
- No glow night vision capabilities
Connected by Verizon, the Covert Blackhawk 20 is an LTE camera with exceptional cellular coverage by one of the top cellphone providers in the country. The camera is also compact and stealthy, coming in at 6” x 4.75“ x 3.5” for overall dimensions.
Keeping to its brands namesake, it has some great stealth features like invisible flash technology and also features maximum silence image capture, making it unlikely for passing deer to hear the camera as it scouts for you, keeping them calm and unaware of any human activity.
Spypoint has certainly made a name for itself when it comes to producing a great cellular trail camera. The camera can detect movement out to 80 feet and has exceptional trigger speed, allowing you to get those shots at a distance without blur, something that other brands struggle with.
One of the best features of the Spypoint Link-S-Dark is that it comes with an integrated solar panel. This means you will save tons on batteries as it is self-charging and also means you will make fewer trips into the woods, keeping your presence to the deer at an all-time low.
Last but not least, the camera has HIT flash settings, allowing you to set your preferences for the flash depending on the situation, from no glow flash to a balanced setting, and low glow flash setting, along with blur reduction to reduce motion blur in low light situations.
These cameras are some of the best trail cameras ever made, and the capabilities of these cameras are pretty incredible when you compare them to trail cameras on the market as little as a decade ago. In the right hands these trail cameras can scout like never before and lift the curtain on the game activity on your property, uncovering the next trophy animal to set your sights on.
