The Primos Truth Cam 35 is a simple camera that gives everything you could hope for in a low priced trail camera, but leaves a little to be desired in the improvement of its performance. It might not offer the high tech features that are available in high end cameras, but it well get the job done fairly well. You will be able to determine the wildlife on the pictures at both day and night time.
This could make a good camera if you are new to this field. The programming is easy for both professionals and amateurs. To learn if this camera would fit your needs let’s take a closer look at its features in our Primos Truth Cam 35 review.
This camera has comparatively good detection range, at least for a camera of its price. Primos Truth Cam 35 is equipped with 35 infrared LEDs. They provide clear night vision of the camera and offer night time detection range of up to 40 feet. The camera gives the option of selecting the number of active LEDs. So you can choose to have either a longer night range or an increased battery life.
The trigger speed could have been better. When the camera is in the sleep mode, the trigger speed is 1.5 seconds. Though when active, it’s only 0.3 seconds. The recovery time is only 5 seconds, which considering its lows price is pretty impressive.
You can set the Truth Cam 35 to take multi-shot bursts and you can choose the amount of picture to be recorded per each triggering. It can be 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9 images.
The picture quality for both day and night is good. If the camera captures an animal standing still, then the quality is really great with good focus and color, allowing you to see even the small details. But if it’s on the move, there’s some blurriness in the photo. The night time pictures are also not that well illuminated past 15 feet.
All of the recorded images have the date, time, temperature and moon phase information stamped on them.
The camera also provides high quality video recording. It can be saved directly onto the SD card. Optionally you can save storage space by switching to the multi-shot mode, with 5 shot photos captured at 1 second delay.
The image resolution for Truth Cam 35 is 3 megapixels. It’s also adjustable to fit your specific needs and conditions.
One of the complaints that the users had about this camera is the sound it makes when capturing an image. It can get the animals spooked. We hope that Primos will fix this issue in the future.
The camera features a large backlit LED screen. There you can go through all the menu settings that are easy to read and use. You can also view there all the images and video.
The programming of the Primos Truth Cam 35 is very easy. It comes with default settings that won’t require much adjusting. However, you can easily tweak the settings to your specific conditions. The trail camera features toggle switches that you slide to choose your desired setting.
The camera comes with a user manual that has all the simple instructions on how to use this device. For further convenience in the field, these operational instructions are also imprinted on the camera itself.
The Truth Cam 35 is powered by 4 D cell batteries. This is also a downside of this camera. It’s preferable to use AA batteries, as they tend to last longer. Also, you cannot use rechargeable batteries on this game camera.
This device supports 8GB SD card, on which you can store all the captured images and videos.
Compared to other trail cameras on the market, Truth Cam 35 is quite large. However, it has a solid construction and good quality casing with Matric camo finish. To secure against theft it comes with a molded security cable. So it will remain safe while you are away.
