Digital Camera World Verdict

We enjoyed using the Link-Micro-S-LTE to transmit photos of wildlife straight to our smartphone moments after they were captured and thanks to the solar panel we didn’t need to keep feeding it AA batteries. This makes it an independent trail camera you can leave alone for days while still enjoying the images it captures via your smartphone. You can retrieve higher-resolution images from the camera’s memory card later. The main downside is its inability to capture video clips.

The Link-Micro-S-LTE is one in a comprehensive collection of trail cameras from Spypoint, including the Spypoint Solar Dark and Force-20. Like the best trail cameras, it is designed to capture stills of any animals that pass by its motion detection sensor during day or night. Although the marketing of the camera targets hunters who need to know the location and behavior of animals, a trail camera can also give you a fascinating insight into the animal activities occurring in your own vicinity, and as such, it is the perfect tool for eager wildlife photographers. 

The Spypoint Link-Micro-S-LTE has two key advantages over some of the other trail cameras in the Spypoint range, and it can send images via cellular connection like the best cellular trail cameras. However, it also has several disadvantages. We’ll help you decide if the advantages outweigh the disadvantages as you read through this review…
