Overland Park, Kan. - Bushnell Outdoor Products, an industry leader in high-performance sports optics for more than 60 years and a market leader in the trail camera industry, has introduced new upgrades to the Trophy Cam HD line for 2013. Leading the industry with a one-year battery life and superior image clarity, Bushnell has enhanced its 2013 product line with a host of new features including hybrid capture mode, hyper PIR, freeze frame shutter, and an ultra-low flash model.
Featuring 8 MP image resolution and HD video standard on every unit, the Trophy Cam HD is packed with features to help hunters more effectively monitor game activity around the clock. The new hybrid capture mode allows users to capture both a still image and video each time the camera is triggered, offering hunters a more robust scouting experience. With the new hyper passive infrared sensor (PIR), Bushnell has improved the camera's detection range, which can now capture game activity at up to 60 feet away.
Bushnell packs each Trophy Cam HD with a host of technologically advanced scouting tools. Introduced in 2012, Field Scan 2x allows users to program two windows of time lapse capture, improving a hunter's ability to monitor game activity at dawn and dusk. Field Scan technology captures images at preset intervals ranging from one minute to 60 minutes, while simultaneously capturing live trigger images.
In addition to an expanded 60-foot detection range, the PIR can be set to auto so that the sensitivity of the sensor is automatically adjusted according to the ambient temperature, resulting in less false triggers. The Trophy Cam HD also features multi flash mode, allowing users to select the ideal flash setting based on the location of the camera and the typical distance of recorded game. For those users who prefer to record up-close images, the new ultra low flash setting triggers just eight LEDs to reduce the risk of overexposure and conserve battery life.
Thanks to a one-year battery life, incredibly fast trigger speed and a massive 32 GB SD card capacity that can store more than 20,000 images, the Trophy Cam HD is one of the most effective scouting tools on the market. Available in April 2013, there will be four new models of the Trophy Cam HD, with suggested retail prices ranging from $199.99 - $329.99.
