Next thing they'll nick is your camera

Lol what must go through an Aldi or Lidl stock buyers head lol, heat.

Only 15 fps,
30fps is much better

I think it could do with a bit of a zoom feature...in their promotional video, I could vaguely see that something was moving at the back of the garden ...probably a jack russel - I can't be sure. Probably better advertised as a ' detect something small in the distance & record it' camera (& then have some family fun guessing what it was)

60fps is muchbetter

Might be good for capturing video footage of US Congressmen being killed...

Seems like a good price as Bushnell Trophycam is >£150.
We have a Bushnell - it doesn't have a preview screen though.
They are great for garden nature lovers - we have filmed hedgehogs, herons, foxes etc. that we would never have seen otherwise.

"the latest 5.0 megapixel camera technology"

Have we stepped back in time or something?

As a photography enthusaist, I know megapixel counts are nothing to get excited about but you can't exactly call that the latest technology. Good try, marketers.

Yes, the IR light only has a limited range, so you have to use trial & error to change the position of the camera to find the best filming spots. Eg. we now know the route the hedgehogs take and so get nice pictures.

15 fps my ***

Perfect if you have any dogging hotspots locally.

Only 60fps?
120fps is much better.

I'll be interested when they start selling the ones used on Springwatch. In comparison I bet these just show you a blur of whatever visited your garden just leaving.

There's a someone who checks all the cars for unlocked doors in my street and raids them in the middle of the night . he's got me twice, nothing major lost. It's either that our he's got sine sort of unlocking device. I wonder if this might help catch him.

I got one last year and they are good - despite the doubters - if anything they are too sensitive and pick up movement at the back of the garden easily. I have recorded foxes and other visitors I never knew I had and have some good footage. Its very good at night with PIR.

Its easy to set up, comes with SD card and batteries (still on original set), and excellent mounting system and can easily be checked without the need to take apart the whole thing as it has a mounting clip meaning the bracket stays in place.

If you want Springwatch quality then expect to spend a lot more than this but I would have no hesitation in recommending this. 3 year warranty is a bonus.

Just to be aware that if you are using this to try to film thieves/vandals, it is not covert - i.e. the infa-red lighting emits a red glow when it is triggered which doesn't unduly affect wildlife but would result in it getting nicked by any person that saw it.

You can buy proper black-light versions but you would probably have to spend three times the price of this.

I got one of these from aldi last time I am really pleased with it you just need to play around with it to get the setting right for what you need to capture

Depends on stock. I suspect they know roughly how many they will sell per store because its been on sale before.

Voted hot as this is a very good price for this kind of kit with a three year warranty

You left your car unlocked with stuff in it, and got it robbed twice? That is strange.

Depends.....this also includes a window fixing with angled tripod style mount......rig it high enough from am upstairs window looking down on the cars & you should be safe

Only 60fps? 120fps is much better.



you guys realise that hedgehogs aren't exactly fast (except for sonic), 15 fps is plenty for the garden.

This looks better -and a little cheaper- than the one I got last year. Had some fun with it; hedgehogs, birds etc. also the batteries last ages (weeks) so the time lapse function is pretty cool too.

Wouldn't advise this for any kind of security application, the sensor on mine has a short range. A wireless webcam(I got this cheap one) with iSpy can do facial recognition and number plate logging. I'm sure someone in the know could recommend something much better for this kind of money.

If you want it for video then anything over 2MP is pretty much pointless when each frame is only 1920x1080 ~= 2MP
