If this becomes overwhelming, please email (bonmixc.com) or call us (1-800-791-0660) and receive individualized help with your specific project.
Here are the steps to solving your camera trap dilemma:
This is pretty self-explanatory. If your budget requires each camera to stay under $250 then you can immediately eliminate every camera over that price point.
Keep in mind - we offer quantity discounts on orders of 5 or more cameras at a time. The higher number of camera traps required, the higher the discount. This enables you to purchase a higher quality camera than your budget would normally allow. Click the link to view all the trail cameras for sale.
3. Infrared vs Incandescent
This is an age old debate. The risk of scaring animals with an incandescent flash, but the reward of having a color night photo. On the flip side, an infrared camera will produce only a faint red glow, but the night photos will be in black and white.
Incandescent flash camera traps are almost required for cat researchers because they must be able to identify individual animals based on their spots. An infrared camera may not be able to do this as well as an incandescent at night.
The infrared cameras will be less "intrusive" to normal wildlife activities as they will not spook the animals when taking a picture in the black of night. Many modern infrared camera traps produce bright, clear infrared pictures. We have sample photos of every camera we sell, which will help you determine if the day and night quality is sufficient for your use.
Also, if the camera is going to need to be completely "covert" at night, you will need a No Glow Infrared Camera Trap.
4. Detection Capabilities
A camera is useless if matched with a weak detection circuit. Quick trigger speeds, fast recovery times, long detection ranges and wide detection zones are optimal. The bigger the detection area the camera traps can monitor and the faster a camera "triggers" and "recovers," the more photos you will have of any given species.
Here are the comprehensive tests that we perform every year:
Also, in every camera trap review we publish, you will find all the pertinent detection capabilities listed for that specific camera. We spend a lot of time and energy performing these tests so it is there for you at the click of a button.
