Digital Camera World Verdict

This brick-like, plastic build trail camera offers a decent straight-out-of-the-blocks option for those looking to get started with surveillance-type observation at a value-added cost. A degree of trial and error and hit-and-miss results are inevitable, but arguably this is part of the fun of such a gadget. Budget extra for a memory card and the six AA batteries required for powering the device.

Trail cameras are becoming ever more popular. Unsurprising perhaps, as, once placed in a surreptitious position, they allow us to observe the wider world and the more skittish of creatures remotely from the comfort of our own home. 

For those looking for a fairly priced route into the trail camera world, the Bushnell Prime L20 Tan Low Glow model looks to be an enticing option. Newcomers should think of it as a surveillance camera with extras, able to begin recording to a removable SD card – with the capability here of utilizing cards up to 32GB – when its built-in sensor detects movement in the vicinity.
