The Browning Strike Force Pro X trail camera is one of the smallest camera traps you can currently buy yet it delivers some great features which include a very impressive 0.22 sec trigger speed, 1600 x 900 HD video and 20 megapixel images, a 1.5" colour viewing screen, and an adjustable back plate for the perfect tilt positioning.
This Strike Force Pro X trail camera has an adjustable 55 - 80 ft motion detection range which works really well with the additional 'Motion Test' feature. This option allows you to adapt the Browning camera trap detection area according to its environment, a simple walk test in the desired zone and the camera blinks a light each time it senses motion.
The Strike Force Pro X also features a forward facing 1.5" colour playback screen so you can accurately set the Browning trail camera up by seeing what the camera sees. Playback and view the high quality 20 Megapixel pictures and/or HD video footage that it has motion captured.
Additional features for the Strike Force HD Pro X includes something that Browning call 'Smart IR video' this function allows continued video footage recording (upto 2 mins) whilst the subject is still moving in front of the camera, so what this actually means is that if you set video for 20 secs and there is still motion detected, the recording will stay on up to a max of 2 minutes (day) or 20 secs (night). This Camera is 12 volt so whilst night videos may be limited to 20 secs, if there is still motion the camera will recover and start recording again in under one second, this preserves battery power, memory capacity and the LED's.
Further menu options include SD card management enabling overwrite of older images on the SD card if the memory becomes full. Something we haven't seen before is that this Browning camera will also take up to a massive 512 GB SD memory card, not that you should ever need it, but it could be handy!
There are three recording modes to choose from, Photo or Video and Time Lapse plus Camera. Time lapse is daytime only and can be used simultaneously with photo or video motion detection still triggering.
The Browning Strike Force HD Pro X is slightly smaller than some alternative Browning trail camera models but just as robust and weatherproof. Unlike other outdoor trail cameras, this Browning has a steel back plate that offers a teeth effect grip and a tilt mechanism which allows you to further angle the camera when used with the included nylon camera strap, still offering a quick yet secure attachment to a tree or post etc.
Battery life is good too, this camera will invariably run for up to 11 months when in daily use on one set of 6 x AA's. Alkaline can be used but Lithium batteries are recommended for longevity and consistent performance.
