Stealth Cam Fusion Global cellular trail cam review

Offering remote shooting and surveillance, with the theoretical ability to access images from anywhere – does this snooper leave others trailing in its wake?

Digital Camera World Verdict

The appeal of the Stealth Cam Fusion Global is not only in it being able to capture images covertly from afar but also access them remotely for viewing and sharing. On alternative devices, we have to physically remove the inserted SD media card (Class 10 recommended) before we can see what we have. Of course, we pay a slight premium for this over more basic trail cameras, even though the 26-megapixel stills and 80ft capture range offered here is pretty standard stuff. Seasoned observers may however well feel that’s justified by the convenience.

With its misshapen molded fascia resembling a strip of tree bark, the Stealth Cam Fusion Global, like the same manufacturer’s DS4K Ultimate model, has been fashioned to blend seamlessly with natural surroundings, the screw-on black antenna than fixes to its top right-hand side notwithstanding. 

The whole point of a trail camera is being able to remotely capture images that we wouldn’t be able to achieve if our subject was aware of our presence or that of our camera, so it makes perfect sense that this isn’t a sleek, shiny device that we’d want to sit next to our iMac.
