Top Customer Reviews
I've only used the camera for a few days and so far the photography portion seems ok. I am however annoyed that reading the Reconyx website I was not told I would need to purchase a SD reader and that no video output cord was included. Small details but on a >$600 device, I assumed, as for the relatively cheap, Trophy Hunter, such would be included, or at least mentioned as an extra cost Accessory on the company website.
If one wants to use this camera to it's full potential it appears this is a PC only camera, and I only use Macs.
1. Back of packaging says that it accepts up to 128GB SD cards. Inside manual says up to 32GB. I had purchased a 64GB card that I cannot use with this VERY EXPENSIVE trail camera. FYI - SD card standards dictate that <32GB cards are formatted FAT32 and cards >32GB be formatted exFAT. This formatting file system change is why many cameras only use cards up to 32GB. Advertising that it can take up to 128GB is clearly misleading the consumer. (it can be done using third party format tools that adhere to the standards but most users won't know that.
2. Less than a month old and after only about 8 days of use the camera does not recognize any SD card of any size. 2GB NOPE, 8GB NOPE, 32GB NOPE, and 64GB NOPE (refer to number 1 above). Can't update the firmware, which there is an update available but it requires the SD card to be accessed. Funny though because it clearly can tell when one is inserted in the slot. When no card is inserted it flashes red across the top stating that no card is inserted. When a card is in the flashing red is not present but then when you use the menu to erase the card it states that a card is not inserted.
3. Requires the use of very expensive lithium batteries. It costs about $25-30 to put 12 batteries in it. What's worse is that using alkaline batteries can actually void the warranty.
4. Mine is clearly a bad apple. The date always resets itself to March. Nothing else changes. It's not the battery, replacing the button cell CR2032 battery changes nothing and I have never seen a clock with a low battery ever change only the month and not the time.
For the short time that this camera actually worked I liked its ease of use (minus getting a 64GB card to work) and its dual camera sensors and smaller size.
I have also found that the battery life indicator is very inconsistent. A new set of 12 lithiums registered at 3/4 charge. This dropped down to "red" (less than 20%?) after 1 video. A replacement camera did the same thing so I assume this may be a problem with the way the camera reads the battery charge status.
