At last the technology actually lives up to it's promises. Trail Cameras of today are discreet digital devices which take high quality stills and HD video when triggered by movement and motion of heat sources. Invisible infrared lights enable good footage of wildlife in complete darkness. With practice you'll be able to capture really interesting footage of our nocturnal wildlife. The optional GPRS modules means the pictures can be sent to you directly from the the unit either by email or MMS, meaning you'll know when good footage is there to retrieve.
These cameras are also known as trophy cameras, scouting cameras, game cameras, camera traps and wildlife cameras.
We decided to produce this website following our immense enjoyment of this hobby - trail camera prices are now really cheap, so if you have some christmas money looking for a home and you enjoy the outdoors and Britain's fantastic wildlife, a wildlife trail camera could open up a whole new world to you.
