7. Video or photo only

There is an important decision between still and moving images. Do you like to take photos or do you also like videos? Many cameras offer both functions as standard. If you want to take high-quality photos, you should make sure that your camera has a good sensor. If images are only distorted, i.e. the existing pixels are enlarged, this results in blurry images. Good video resolution is also important. If you can do a test video before purchasing, you should ensure that the recordings are not shaken. If it vibrates, it means that not enough frames per second are being captured to enable a smooth video image. Time-lapse recordings are also interesting and can provide a quick overview. A microphone should also be integrated for real-life recordings.

8. Data transfer

Wildlife camera data must be backupable to a memory card. Only a few models have the ability to transfer photos or videos over WiFi. Most devices have a microSD slot, and some also allow CF cards. In many cases, data can be transferred via a USB-C cable. If you want to mount the device on a tree, you must ensure that a suitable strap or stand is included in the scope of delivery.

9. Weatherproof

The camera must definitely be sturdy to withstand animal collisions and all weather conditions. You should also make sure that the device is waterproof or has a small roof for protection. Most models today are protected against dust and water splashes according to the IP66 standard. It is also important that the camera remains functional even in extreme temperatures. A range of -20 to +60°C is recommended.
