8.1.2016: I have just ordered two more of these excellent cameras. These are providing the clearest and most reliable captures of all the different camera models and manufactures that I have ordered. I am confident, that I have wasted almost $1,500 dollars on other brands that have poor capturing and picture quality. I just recently tossed one brand camera deep into the brush due to dissatisfaction with it's extremely poor functioning. We just saw a bobcat on the camera and the neighbors are crazy about the Facebook photos that it provided.
I wanted to purchase 2 or 3 game cameras to replace some older ones. I went to the internet and found several sites that did reviews of newer game cameras. One camera that was rated fairly high by several sites was the Browning Strike Force Elite camera. The “specifications” looked good, and with the recommendations, I decided to buy two of that camera.
Well, reality turned out to be FAR different than the “specifications” touted. I inserted new alkaline batteries and did the setup on one of the cameras (and I’ve been setting up game cameras of different brands for 10 years so I can set one up properly). I then went outside to do some testing of the camera. I set the camera on a solid mount without any close objects in the primary shooting angle. I turned the camera on and then moved out of sight and range of the camera for 2-3 minutes. I then walked into the viewing area of the camera at a distance of about 25 feet until I was straight ahead of the camera. Then I walked directly toward the camera at a slow but not creeping speed.
I then got the camera, turned it off, took out the memory card, and went to view the results. The camera didn’t take my picture until I was around 8-10 feet from the camera. I then tried the same experiment again. This time the camera only took my picture when I was about 2-3 feet from the camera.
I then decided to set up the second camera I had bought and see if it performed better. I added new alkaline batteries (about 1.62 volts measured) and set up this second camera (trail mode as before). I went outside, turned on the camera, placed it on a solid surface (again with nothing in front of it for 30 plus feet), and moved away out of sight. After 2-3+ minutes (the delay after turning the camera ON for turning on the camera sensors is 30 seconds), I walked into the viewing area at a distance of about 25 feet until I was directly in front of the camera. I then started walking somewhat slowly, not creeping, toward the camera. After reaching the camera, I turned it off, and went to look at the memory card as before. This time, the camera had only taken my picture AS I WAS PICKING UP THE CAMERA (a somewhat blurred image of my pants at close range). I tried taking another picture using the same procedure - the camera did not sense me - or at least did not take a picture.
So I then decided to use the “Motion Detection” mode of the camera to try to analyze its detection capability. In this mode, the camera turns on a red LED to signify when it detects an infrared source (I’m a big guy with lots of infrared radiation). The results here were poor to worse than poor. The “specifications” claimed infrared detection at 55 feet (yes, I know that would be in a laboratory - so I would be okay with detection at 35-40 feet).
I set the camera in Motion Detect mode, set the camera on the solid surface used before, and walked around at “deer grazing” speed. I walked around back and forth in the camera viewing area at different distances from the camera (and used a tape measure to confirm distances). Camera One detected me occasionally at 10 feet, seldom at 12 feet, frequently but NOT consistently at 8 feet. And my guess on the width of the detection area was noticeably less than the specified 55 degrees. Again, even at the close distances, there was not a consistent detection at, say, 6 feet.
Okay, Camera Two, in a few words, it’s detection was a disaster. It would SELDOM detect my walking back and forth even at 8 feet. It would not detect me at 12 feet. It would sometimes detect me at 6 feet. And the detection always seemed to be when I was off to the left of straight ahead. Did I say disaster ?
Why would I be so stupid to put either of these cameras out to take deer pictures ? I might get a picture 5 to 10 percent of the time. And only if the deer was close to the camera. . . Not out where the deer was 15+ feet from the camera . . .
I did call the manufacturer, Prometheus, to ask about what might be wrong and complain about the quality and design of the camera. I might understand of just one of the two cameras had a problem, but when BOTH had significant deviations from the specifications, there must be a valid problem with the camera. I got some canned answers that blamed things other than the camera. And I could pay to send them the brand new camera that didn’t work for them to test ( and maybe send me back another camera that didn’t work either - (my speculation)).
I’m sending these cameras back for a refund from where I bought the cameras.
I definitely DO NOT recommend this camera - the Browning Strike Force Elite. Indeed, I would be suspicious of other Browning branded cameras made by this manufacturer. Your results may vary from mine but my money is going elsewhere.
Edit: I would add this about battery life; I started missing shots when I knew there were targets in range. The battery % showed to be down to 50 %. I installed new batteries and it was as good as new. Now, a couple of weeks later, the battery % shows to be 72% and I notice the trigger speed is already slowing way down. Targets are almost, and sometimes are, out of the video. I think the battery % shown on the readout should be a usable number. Or, maybe it should have 8 batteries.
These pictures are actually better quality than this. These are pictures of the pictures while they're on my computer monitor. The line grains are due to that. When I get home if I think about it I'll post some directly from the trail camera. Also have great videos I'll post up if I can remember.
Edit for an update.
I purchased this camera on Sept. 24, it is now Nov. 10th and the batteries finally died on me. This camera has been basically going none stop with highest quality videos for about 45 days now. When I say non stop I mean non stop. Birds eating the corn in the day and deer during the night. Estimating 15 to 20 hours of video every day. I got the recommended batteries from Amazon with the purchase of this camera. They're the Energizer L91BP-8 Ultimate Lithium AA Batteries.
