Backyard Cam Pictures
I purchased the Campark T45 camera about a month ago, I really like it. It took me a few tries to get the settings correct but the setup menu is easy to use. The instruction manual is useful too. At first it was taking hundreds of pictures a day because I had a tree or bush in the camera view thus it was taking pictures of the moving limbs and leaves. It is usually very sunny here most of the year so pictures during the day are no problem. However when it is raining or overcast much fewer pictures are taken. It was not taking pictures at night at first but I added four more batteries and set the optimum exposure angle for the sensors and started getting photos at night. It takes nice videos during the day but usually not enough light at night to take them.
It is amazing what is in or around our yard and this camera sure lets you know. There is a password setting for security. The only feature I could want that is not in the camera is a wi-fi connection but I need the exercise so it’s just as well none is available. I may get another T45 or two so I can get pictures from more angles at the same time.

Campark Trail Game Camera 14MP 1080P Waterproof Hunting Scouting Cam for Wildlife Monitoring with 120°Detecting Range Night Vision 2.4″ LCD IR LEDs
I have been using trail/game cameras for over six years and this one has excellent features and performance for the price as of this writing 62$ . Most important to me is sensitivity and high quality imagery and video and the quality of 14MP imagery and 1080 and 720 video is impressive. The most important workload feature to me is the live image preview and media review – this used to be unheard of at this price point.
I have paid 150 and 180 for cameras that didn’t have this feature. It is so much better to see exactly what area you are going to capture and what you have captured so far without removing the camera or the disk to check the media in the computer.
I may get another one or two so I can get pictures from more angels at the same.
Backyard Wildlife Camera
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Wildlife Camera at a great price!
We have taken hundreds of images and several hundred 1 minute videos while testing this on a single set of batteries. Trigger sensitivity has been quite good with the side sensors and the highest setting you can catch the animal in action just as they enter the frame. I use these cameras to get close ups of birds and small mammals as well as large game and can get clear video and triggers on birds as small as chickadees.
Minimum focus distance is about 24 inches so if you put the subject closer than that it will naturally be a little out of focus. So account for that in your shoot layout all cameras have that issue you can’t get too close and be in focus. Another nice feature is a mounting bracket for a permanent installation which would be useful for home security monitoring applications. I triggered on myself many times walking around so I’m sure it would be good for monitoring trespassing and suspicious activity at least 50 to 75 feet away. The IR night lights are very bright. I made a comprehensive video review on YouTube if you want to see that just search CamPark 14MP Trail Camera Test and look for the one with a big elk on the thumbnail
