New Ltl Acorn and Bushnell Trail Cameras - Review - Part 1

This is the start of a full review of these two cameras on behalf of Wildlife and Countryside Services and I will be posting my observations and results of camera performance over the next few weeks.

These wildlife trail cameras are the latest, top of the range models from Ltl Acorn and Bushnell and are very similar in specification. I will be directly comparing and trialling them under identical conditions.

They represent the very latest evolution in technical development of miniaturised, outdoor game cameras.

          4.5 x 6.3 x 2.75 inches

Ltl Acorn HD Video Series
Model:  6210MC (without MMS)

         3.3 x 5.6 x 2.75 inches

Ltl Acorn 6210M

Bushnell Trophy Cam 119467
I must say that considering the 6210 is Ltl Acorn's latest flagship product, I was a bit disappointed with their packaging.

The box arrived with no internal reinforcement and was rather squashed as a result. Not a very convincing start! (This issue has been taken up with the manufacturer)

The Bushnell, on the other hand, was well presented, including bubble wrap.

Packaging Update: The poor packaging issue has since been addressed by the manufacturers. For more information, go to Ltl Acorn 6210 Packaging

  1. Excellent! Can't wait for the results, Ron.

    I have a number of Bushnells 2010 Trophy Cams and I was VERY disappointed with them. Vowed I'd never buy a Bushnell again, but the black-flash has me curious.

    I now have some of the older Acorns (5210A), which I really like.....I'd currently go with my Acorns over the my Bushnells any day.

    I really am looking forward to hearing what you think about these newer models!

    1. Somehow I missed replying to your comment and would like to apologize. You mention the black flash and part 4 of this review, which is about to be posted, goes into some detail regarding these manufacturers different approaches to invisible flash.

      I'm glad your finding the review of interest.

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.
