The Stealth P18 is a hunting camera that can serve as your eyes, scouting areas so that you can determine where you should head for your next hike. Sold with some essential accessories, the item is ready for use right out of the box and has a solid reputation for quality among online reviewers. I recently took a look at it myself for my own review.
Benefits of the Stealth Cam P18
- EZ Dial Programming
Designed to suit the needs of beginners, this cam simplifies setting and can be ready for use in a fraction of the time of some other field cameras. On the back of the camera is a dial that gives you three preset modes to choose from, so that you can just twist the dial and have the unit ready to go. There is also a Custom Model that allows you to set everything up yourself for maximum flexibility.
- Burst Mode
To ensure that you don’t miss a shot, you can set the cam into Burst Mode with this setting, and it will take one to six photos in rapid succession, allowing you to see how your target moves and giving you more chances to capture the action. Other cameras that have burst mode often limit you to four or five shots in a burst, so the P18 gives you more opportunities to take photos with each burst.
At night, the camera can continue to take impressive photographs with the help of the 18 infrared emitters that are included in its design. Its night vision range is 50 feet, which is longer than some other models in its price range, giving you the ability to shoot from further away without compromising image quality.
- Video Recording
In addition to taking pictures, it can shoot video for 15 seconds at a time, giving you the same crystal clear images that you enjoy when you’re shooting wildlife with its 7-megapxel image sensor.
Drawbacks of the P18
The biggest drawback to this model is that you cannot turn the flash off. This could potentially mean that if you’re taking photos in dim light or in the dark, the bright light of the camera could frighten away game; however, its ability to capture images very quickly makes sure that you don’t miss your chance to get that first shot. The flash also provides overall better image quality at night, so it is a nice feature to have, especially when you consider that it works from up to 60 feet away.
Sold with a memory card, batteries and a strap for carrying and still less expensive that some other cams on the market today, this one offers good value for the money. You’ll be able to easily scout and capture live action on the trail by day or by night with this field camera.
