Trailcampro Analysis MOULTRIE M-40I GAME CAMERA
Cam is designed with one thing in mind, close focus wildlife photography. This is the most popular camera for anyone using the camera for bird watching, rodent surveys or any other project that involves taking pictures within a few meters of the camera.
Normal trail cameras have trouble focusing on animals near the camera. The 2017 Natureview comes with f600 mm and f460 mm camera lenses that screw onto the front of the lens.
Picture Quality: 78/100
Photo resolution: 14, 8 or 3 mpxl | Video Resolution: 1920 x 1080 w/ audio | Flash Type: No Glow Infrared
This category is a tale of two extremes. Day pictures are incredible and some of the best you will ever see. Outstanding clarity, great color, and consistent quality on all the photos. Extremely impressive. Night photos ranked among the worst in our Flash Range Test. We apologize for the lack of night sample images. For whatever reason, we couldn't get any critters to come by the bird feeders at night. Check the Flash Range Test for night images.
Most, not all, of the users who want a close-focus camera like this aren't as interested in the night photos as they are the day pictures. So the importance of this will be entirely up to you.
Video quality mimics picture quality. These are among the best HD trailcam daytime videos you will ever see.
Battery Life: 90/100
Resting Power (on): 1.26 mW | Daytime Power Consumption: 4.63 Ws | Nighttime Power Consumption: 5.82 Ws
Battery data is outstanding. Low draws across the board. The Natureview HD is an efficient game camera.
If this camera were to take 35-day pictures and 35-night pictures every 24 hour period, this camera would last an astounding 11.4 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries.
If this camera were to take 15-day videos and 15-night videos every 24 hour period, this camera would last 2.7 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries. This is with 10-second video clips.
Detection Circuit: 81/100
Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.26 s. / 0.7 s. | Video Trigger & Recovery Speed: 2.14 s. / 4.8 s. | Detection Range: 100 ft.
You can't ask for a much faster picture taking camera. 1/4 second trigger speed and recovery well under a second. Video trigger is on the opposite end of the spectrum, it is very slow.
Detection range is an incredibly impressive 100 ft. Other than the slow video times, this is a great detection zone.
Quality of Design: 82/100
