Many hunters want to be able to scout locations for expeditions but do not want to invest a lot in a camera to get the job done or have the time available to master a set of complicated controls. This is a camera designed for those sportsmen. Consistently well reviewed online, this unit has a very simple design that I recently put to the test for a review.
Benefits of the Primos Easy Cam
- One Touch Operation
The biggest selling point of the device is its intuitive, simple design. All that you have to do to get it working is put batteries and an SD card in it, mount it where you want to use it and touch one button. The cam does the rest automatically, capturing shots and saving them to the SD card for you to review later. You don’t have to fuss with focus, timers or anything else. It is literally just one touch and you’re done so it couldn’t be any simpler.
- Compact, Discreet Design
Compared to a lot of other trail cameras, this model is ultra compact. It is very inconspicuous hanging from a tree and its black housing makes it difficult to spot when you mount it outdoors. This makes it less obtrusive to wildlife and less likely to be seen by a human who might want to help themselves to it. The small size also makes it easy to transport.
- Night Vision
The item includes an infrared filter that allows it to take shots during the night in black and white. There are 12 night vision LEDs built into the camera.
As previously mentioned, the machine was designed with ease of use in mind, so it’s a great choice of camera for someone who wants to be able to take scouting photos on the trail or check out what the animals are up to in their backyard and do not want to have to fuss to get the photos they want.
That said because it is designed as an entry-level model it does not have any advanced features. You cannot do image bursts or time lapses with the item. It will strictly take photographs from the moment that you turn it on until the battery runs out or you turn it off. This may make it less than ideal for some users, while others will appreciate the simplicity.
If you are looking for a no-fuss, straightforward entry-level camera that will give you nice images on the trail and is not hard to master, this is a good solution. With its low price and simple-to-use design, it will have you capturing images of wildlife in no time and without requiring a major investment.
