Hi, I would recommend getting a set of close up lenses for the camera. I switched from the cheap Amazon cameras to 3 Brownings about a year ago. I bought them from Wildview Cameras and they also sell the lens kits which consist of a lens adapter, set of lenses and black tac to stick the closeup lens to the camera. I would recommend using the +1 or +2 for most hedgehog footage as the camera will likely be around 1-3M from the target area, but best to experiment and find what works for your situation. The reason for the lenses is that Trail cameras are generally made for targets which are several metres away and while you can film hogs that far away the best footage is when you are only a couple of Metres away or closer.
