Browning Trail Camera Reviews

Browning Trail Camera

Browning trail cameras and trail camera accessories are among the best in the world. Their product lines include the Command Ops series, Spec Ops series, Strike Force HD series, Dark Ops HD series, and Recon Force FHD series. That said, their trail camera selection can include subtle differences that you might want to know about before choosing one product or the other. In case you haven’t looked yet, we have an article covering trail camera basics on ScopesHQ that will help inform you of what to look for when purchasing a Browning trail camera, or any other trail camera for that matter.

Just as a reminder, you should at least be aware of the following features when looking for any trail camera.

Trail Camera Basics to Remember

  • Battery Life – Basically just use common sense when dealing with battery life.  There are a few options that tend to have too weak of battery life but most of the Browning options do just fine.
  • Custom Features – Video length, cluster photos, and menu screens, are different between models.  Some have LCD screens while some have much more basic options.
  • Maximum Megapixels – Generally, higher numbers are better; but be careful in examining your options.  We always like to make sure that optimal picture quality is maintained during the photo process
  • Image Clarity – A critical factor when choosing trail cameras.  Often times you will not get a second chance at the photo and it can be very frustrating to get back and look at the pictures only to find you everything is distorted or blurry.
  • Infrared Flash Distance – Good flashes mean better night shots. Good for spotting trash pandas!
