Springfield, MO (PRWEB) February 21, 2008
With trail cameras becoming a 'must have' for hunters and wildlife enthusiasts, many trail camera companies have emerged to compete for market share. In an effort to find the most effective trailcam on the market, the staff at Trail Cam Pro (http://www.trailcampro.com) designed the 'Trail Camera Shootout,' a review process to put 9 of today's leading trail cameras to the test.
The test consisted of testing the nine trail cameras in the same location and setting up walking paths in front of each camera in 10-foot intervals from 10 feet to 80 feet from the camera. Next, they sent a test subject to walk in front of each camera to test the trail camera's ability to detect and capture a quality image.
Only one of all of the nine trail cameras tested, the Reconyx RM-45, detected the motion and captured an image at all 10-foot intervals.
Additionally, each photograph was given a score based on the quality of the photo and the speed at which the camera detected the movement and captured the image of the test subject. Surprisingly, even at 10 feet, only 3 of the trail cameras captured the image of the test subject.
Overall scores for the nine trail cameras tested ranged from 56 points out of a possible 64 points, to 3 points. (There were 8 different distances, with 8 points possible at each distance.)
"Our goal was to conduct the most extensive trail camera review in order to establish the industry's top performing trail camera. Based on our testing, the Reconyx RM-45 was the clear winner. However, with a top aggregate score of 56 points out of a possible 64, there are lots of opportunities for exciting improvements in trail cam technology," says Rich Howell, owner of Trail Cam Pro.
