In what concerns trail cameras and innovation, the Wildgame Innovations Razor X6 couldn’t have a better name. Its characteristics include every aspect that’s top-notch in the market and above all, with a quality of picture that attracts every customer. The pricing could be a factor that would shadow all the technical traits, but fortunately, it’s accessible for medium class families. The Wildgame Innovations Razor 6 Review will hopefully assist you in order to make the best decision regarding this product, and show you that a good snapshot doesn’t have to be taken only with very cheap cameras that lack the high level of detail you might require.
Razor X6 has some specifications that make it a reference in the market, especially in what concerns the use of high intensity LED lights in a flash with a range of 60 feet and a different control system for exposure allowing better images, as well as an Anti-Blur Technology to have a clear image at day time and one very visible at night, especially when used in combination with the high intensity, LED light flash. Although this camera has the possibility to be charged with external energy, it also requires 8 AA batteries. Other options include:
FlexRime Lapse Technology
You can’t use this option 24 hours per day, since it takes pictures without having the need for you to keep pressing the trigger. You can use it in the period from 15 minutes before sunrise to 1 hour after sunrise, and 1 hour before sunset to 15 minutes after sunset.
HD 720 Video
The 720 Video is perfect since it’s the perfect resolution to catch fast moments due to a high frame rate.
External battery access
Remember that even if the camera has internal power, as soon as you connect it to an external battery it will switch up to the external battery. This way it will save more of its own energy. We can say it’s a very efficient process.
With this fast trigger, plus the quality of the image, you can trust to take your regular snapshot without losing in quality.
16:9 ratio available
The 16:9 allows seeing a bigger picture when compared with the 4:3 traditional ratios, more than just in terms of quantity, it also allows to have a clearer picture.
There are some extras you can also use in the Wildgame Innovations Razor 6 in order to maximize its potential, such as an SDHC Card, up to a capacity of 32GB, but this is an extra. You can use what comes only in the package, only that allows you to take around 30 000 pictures. It also requires a bungee cord. This is a less safe option than a strap lock.
Pros and cons
Like every product, it has its pros and cons. However, we can refer that we thought of the balance of both situations very positive, especially since the cons that were found do not interfere severely with the quality of pictures.
- Very light camera and easy to carry.
- The Anti-Blur technology allows clean pictures.
- You can document an entire landscape in a matter of minutes with the quick trigger option.
- The 16:9 options allow having a great detail in the photo or video regarding the angle.
- Possibility to take 30 000 pictures.
- Intuitive commands, very easy to handle.
- Very efficient regarding energy savings.
- Accessible price.
- Good price/quality ratio.
- The fact that it’s such a small device makes the window of the picture small too, that way you won’t be able to discern if you want more detailed photos.
- Very difficult to catch moving elements at night, the photos will lose detail.
- It needs a bungee cord, which is less secure than a strap lock.
- The 32GB card is not.
The Wildgame Innovations Razor X6 works at 100% of its capabilities until a 30 ft distance. More than that and you’ll start losing a clear image and losing performance even using the wide angle of the 16:9 option. Although the LED light flash is an improvement, when you use it at night you won’t be able to take the most of it with moving targets. The ideal situation is to take the typical snapshot to a steady target.
To finalize the Wildgame Innovations Razor 6 Review, we can say that based on its price, and the technical aspects from it, it’s a very safe bet. The fact is that you can purchase the 32GB card is indeed a nuisance, but remember that you can take more than 30 000 pictures. The fact that it can start using external energy when you connect to an external source, thus, saving its internal energy is perfect for energy efficiency. You’ll have your camera charged up for very important moments.
If you just want the typical snapshot where you can sacrifice quality just to register the moment, this Wildgame Innovations camera is not an option since it has more options to it. However, if you want to expand your qualities as a photographer and still be able to have your snapshots, here you have a good option at a low cost.
Arthur Selander says
Received a Wildgame trail camera as a gift. I was so pleased with the bright clear pictures and simplicity of use that I purchased 2 more. After 8 months and thousands of great wildlife pictures when one of the cameras went on the fritz. The company was helpful with troubleshooting recommendations, but after I tried everything it still wouldn’t work. They advised that I send it back to them using a prepaid label which they sent me. About three weeks later I received a new and much better camera from Wildgame. The new one has much better features, but still easy to operate. All three are working great.I rarely leave reviews, however Wildgame is such a QUALITY COMPANY that I felt posting was a small way to say THANK YOU. Arthur Selander Virginia
