Bushnell Outdoor Products has introduced a new wireless trail camera — the Wireless Trophy Cam HD, which is the first carrier-approved wireless trail camera and is built on the award-winning Trophy Cam platform.
With the transmission of thumbnail images via email or text, hunters can monitor activity and keep an eye on the woods in near real time, while an exclusive smartphone app (free for Android and iPhone devices) allows hunters to quickly modify camera settings. Hi-resolution images are saved to a Web portal where users can download images or change camera settings remotely.
The Wireless Trophy Cam HD uses patented Zipit Wireless technology and includes a prepaid AT&T data plan that provides users with unlimited thumbnail images for the first 30 days. From seasonal to year-around scouting, Bushnell offers data plans (no contract required) for as little as $9.99/month to complement a variety of scouting tactics, including a convenient pay-as-you go plan.
Data communication to and from the camera operates on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
The Wireless Trophy Cam HD has a 0.6-second trigger speed and an 8 megapixel camera that captures 720p high-definition video. It also can capture game activity as much as 50 feet away. In addition to live trigger images, Field Scan 2X allows hunters to monitor game during peak activity periods such as dawn and dusk. This time-lapse technology captures images or video at preset intervals ranging from one to 60 minutes, while simultaneously capturing live trigger images.
With an industry-leading multi-month battery life on a single set of batteries and compatibility with as much as a 32 GB SD card, Wireless Trophy Cam HD captures also includes an information stamp on photos and videos that is loaded with helpful scouting information including date, time, moon phase and more.
Available exclusively at Cabela’s through March and at leading retailers beginning in April, the Wireless Trophy Cam HD has a minimum advertised price of $599.99. Bushnell will offer several accessories for the camera including a security case and a solar panel that can be used in conjunction with rechargeable batteries to improve battery life.
