This Bushnell Aggressor no glow review will highlight the many reasons why this trail camera is so popular amongst hunters. If you want to monitor local wildlife over several months at a time, this is the camera that you need. It is a reliable camera that comes with plenty of great features to ensure that you can capture the data that you need.
FeaturesThere are two different versions of this camera. This is the no-glow LED version, whilst the other is the low-glow version. Both are available in a brown or camouflaged casing. They are almost the same camera actually, although as the name variation suggests, they have different levels of glow from the LEDs. This is because they use LEDs that have different wavelengths of infrared light.
The no-glow option features a level of infrared that is not visible to humans or animals. The low glow version fails to block some of the infrared waves that come from the bulbs and this means that this camera emits a little light that is visible. This is what makes the no-glow option the best choice. When the camera is triggered, the no-glow version will not startle any nearby wildlife.
The only real negative point about the no-glow model is that it has a shorter range as a trade off for using no-glow LEDs. This means that you will need to decide whether you need range or stealth when choosing your trail camera.
This aggressor camera is probably one of the fastest operating trail cameras that you can find at the moment. It is able to take 3 photos in quick succession in less than one second. This offers a freeze-frame collection of photographs and means that the camera picks up even the fastest of animals.
For pictures, the camera has a sub 0.2-second trigger speed, whilst the trigger for video is a little longer. You can enjoy the most accurate of recordings knowing that this camera is so quick to respond.
This trail camera offers exceptionally high video quality. 1080p video recording means that you can see the video clearly and widescreen full HD ensures that it will display clearly on a larger screen or television, which is essential for viewing the recordings once you have downloaded them from the camera.
You should be aware that video takes up far more memory than photographs do. You will require around 2MB of data space for each second of recording so as you can imagine, over a matter of months, this will fill up fast. It’s advised that you only choose video mode if you are prepared to download the video from the camera frequently.
For a trail camera in this price range, you’ll be expecting a good quality of image, but you won’t be prepared for the 14MP quality of this camera. It is able to take high quality photos and videos above and beyond the expectations of other cameras in its category. For the same price, other models offer around 8MP, which isn’t nearly as high quality as the Aggressor.
You’ll notice that thanks to the trigger speed of this camera coupled with the high image resolution, this camera can capture excellent photos of animals moving quickly, including birds in flight. It could even catch images of multiple animals in the same frame clearly.
It should be noted that as the light levels are changing in the day, at dusk and dawn, this camera can struggle a little to produce the best quality photos, although they are still good enough quality to view. There are frequent firmware upgrades being released for this camera however, so there is a chance that the quality issues will be resolved quickly enough if you run a firmware upgrade.
The Bushnell brand is well known for having a great battery life, and the Aggressor is no exception. This is one of the reasons why this camera is so popular. It takes 8 AA lithium batteries and whilst most other trail cameras offer 6 month’s battery life, this one boasts an impressive 12 months battery life although you will probably find that the estimation is based on a situation where the camera is not triggered very often.
If you expect that the camera will be triggered quite frequently and set it up to take photographs rather than video clips, it is more realistic to estimate that the camera will manage to last for 6 to 8 months on one set of batteries. This is still a decent length of time and will mean that you don’t need to worry about going and changing the batteries very often.
Detection ZoneOf course, one of the main things that you need to consider with any trail camera is the detection zone. There is little point in installing a camera with a sensor if it will not pick up the things that you need it to. The detection zone refers to the area in front of the camera where the sensor will be triggered to initiate recording. You should certainly bear this in mind when you are positioning your camera.
This camera in particular offers a detection range of around 100 feet. This is more than enough during the daytime and is an impressive distance when compared with other trail cameras. At night, the detection range is still the same, however the range is really only around 50 feet as this is the distance of the LED flash. As the LEDS are no glow, this is the trade-off that users have to accept.
This is a high quality trail camera that is not only reasonably priced but also brings plenty of useful and impressive features. This Bushnell Aggressor no glow review is a detailed insight into some of the best features and thanks to a long detection zone range and particularly high quality images and video, you can be sure that you will never miss anything ever again.
