Trail camera close focus tests

If, like myself, you want to use a trail camera for filming smaller animals at close range, then focusing is one of the issues which can be a problem.

The images below show how the Acorn 5210A 940nm, the Bushnell Trophy Cam 2010 model 119445 and the Hawke ProStalk PC2000 focus at 1 Metre.
Each image is cropped from the centre of the frame and when you open the image up to full size it will be 1:1 as it came off the camera.


It's important to note that no adjustments have been made to these images. Sharpness, white balance, contrast and brightness are exactly as each camera produced them.
All the cameras save stills in a jpg file format.

The Acorn is the only camera that focuses at 1 metre, the Bushnell comes into focus at about 1,4 metres and the ProStalk doesn't really improve in real terms at any distance.


White balance tests will be following.....

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
