    No problem, just do a bit of skating and enjoy a giant ice lolley!
    The toughness of these little fellas still impresses me.


    Just love your videos Bassman, great sound as well. Still trying to decide on a camera myself after a faulty buy. Bit off topic maybe but can I please ask which one you have? Thanks so much.


    The video in this thread was using my Victure HC500. However the image isnt actually quite as sharp as on the original as I took it using it on a high tripod to get a larger area and then Ive used some software to zero in on a part of it and expand that part which reduces the resolution.
    Most of these types of trail cams were originally made for hunters to see what game was passing through their land so they tend to have quite wide angle lenses which isnt ideal for close in work with things as small as hedgehogs etc. Someone else posted that its possible to get add-ons that shorten the focal length but it’s more money on top of the camera itself of course.
    I took a punt on this one as it was on offer at under £70 at the time which for a Wifi camera, allowing you to connect to it from inside the house and either check what’s going on by recording in real time or downloading whats been recorded already as programmed straight to your smartphone, is very cheap. Some of the models by high reputation companies like Browning run into the hundreds of pounds.
    I only started looking into them last year so still a novice. My first buy was an Apeman but had a few problems and they gave me a refund and let me keep the camera, which still works but won’t carry out all the options its supposed to do. I think it was part of a bad batch as I know others that have had them with no issues at all. The Apeman isnt as wide angle and seems to ‘zoom in’ a bit in video mode compared with photo only but the resolutions isnt as good as the Victure when on infra red for night filming.


    Many thanks for that Bassman. I appreciate that useful info. Such a huge choice available and pros and cons of each it seems. Nevertheless going by your vids I’m certainly looking seriously at a Victure now.


    daffydill, I think you contributed to it anyway but worth another look at the ‘Best Garden Camera’ thread on Champions Chat section, some very useful info from alanfrew at the bottom of the thread, he seems to have quite a lot of experience with trail cams.
