Will it come as an unbelievable surprise if I tell you that you get to have this camera at a modest price you can easily afford?

One of the major benefits of this camera is its compact size. This camera is usually smaller compared to its competitors. The unit will easily blend with a tree it is mounted on due to its visually appealing and effective camouflage.
The unit has a Master Lock Python cable slot found at the camera’s rear. This excellent security feature will make the camera stay in place.
Detection Circuit and Trigger Speed
Strike Force has good sensitivity with a 0.67 seconds trigger speed while the recovery time is around 2.3 seconds. This is impressive for a camera within this price range.
The sensitivity perfectly matches the detection range which is 70 feet for this camera. Image recording during the night with LEDs flash range can be done within 100 feet.
The Strike Force produces incredible pictures which have enough brightness, color, and focus. The resolution is 10 megapixels allowing it to capture sharp images with no visible blur. You can use the camera to take pictures during the day and also during the night.
The camera has many LEDs which produce infrared flash to enable it to capture the image at night. It will capture the day images in color but captures the night images in black and white.
To avoid any form of blurriness on daytime images, find a place for mounting the camera, not in the shade. If there is a lower level of light, the images will turn out to be less sharp.
This camera enables you to record your HD videos with sound if you wish to. You can set the interval for recording the video. This interval can be from as low as 5 seconds to as long as a length of 2 minutes.
The audio feature is very important as it allows you to view and listen to what is happening in real time in the video. It can also be very important if the animal is not in view of the camera as you will be able to know that there are animals in the area just by listening.
The Strike Force camera runs on 6 AA batteries. These batteries can last for about one hunting season or enough to capture up to 10,000 images. If you want the batteries to last longer, choose those made from lithium as they can withstand the cold temperatures and also last longer compared to the alkaline ones.
Ease of Use
I have discovered that the programming of this trail cam is straight forward. There are several settings to help you record images and videos.
There are two options to choose from; Fire images (up to 6 rapid images) and Shot images (up to 8 rapid images). It is possible to program the picture to enable the capture to happen with a delay. It can either be 5 seconds or as much as 2 minutes.
If you will set up the camera in a new location and you wish to capture a big field suing the time lapse mode will enable you to take pictures at certain intervals. What triggers the camera is the timer and not the movement.
This will allow you capture images of the game that would not be able to trigger the camera with heat and motion because it is far from the camera.
The Browning Strike Force camera also displays time and date, temperature and moon phase when recording the image.
The wide range of trail cameras can be used by those who watch wild game, hunters and for security surveillance. From all the trail cameras we have reviewed, this one really stands out as one of the best game cameras on the market today. Considering all the benefits and uses, you simply can’t go wrong getting one of these.
I believe this Browning Strike Force review can make you understand the features of this camera better and enjoy all it has to offer to help you know what you are really investing in.
