The 155x190x90mm large camera was supplied with an adjustable tether, a USB cable, a RCA cable and a German and English user manual. An SD card and the required batteries 3 C and 4 D batteries were not included in the delivery and must be purchased separately.
The Grizzly game camera consists of a robust plastic, which was also printed with a camouflage optics. This camouflage pattern is weatherproof, as far as I could determine after just under 10 days of use.
The front side has several infrared LEDs mounted around the lens as well as a motion sensor underneath. The camera is opened via two side-mounted folding mechanisms, which seal the camera just as watertight. On the bottom there is the power button, which can be placed in 3 possible positions (ON - OFF - TEST). Next to it is an 6V input for a solar module.
The camera achieves a resolution of 720p (1280x720) when recording videos, although only 15 images per second are possible. With a lower resolution of, for example, 720x480 pixels, 30 images per second are also possible. Another choice is 640x480 pixels.
In the image mode, a resolution of up to 7 megapixels can be set. There are also options for 5, 3 and 1.3 megapixels.
The camera is controlled and adjusted via the "control center", which is located in the hinged lid of the camera. Here are an 2.4 inch TFT display and numerous buttons and switches. On the side is also the SD card slot (Attention, no micro SD!)
When I wanted to set the camera correctly for the first time, I was literally killed by the individual functions and subtleties of the camera. Here you should definitely take the manual to help. At the beginning I did not even know how to turn on the camera's display at all.
When I was busy with the manual, adjusting the camera was no longer a problem. The coarsest settings can be made via the integrated display. Here you can among other things choose between the picture and video mode and also make other settings within each mode.
If you have set the camera correctly, you can attach it with the included tether and turn it on. Here you can choose between a test mode but also the normal mode.
The Grizzly game camera has little to do with a cheap Jägerknippse. Here is a professional camera with many features.
Here is a brief list of all known settings:
- Video mode: resolution, frame rate
- Picture Mode: Resolution, Quality, Exposure, Burst Mode, ISO, Date Display
- General Settings: Video Sound, Flash (IR or Strobe), Date and Time, Language, TV Out (PAL or NTSC), USB (MSDC or PCCAM), Format, Factory Reset, Time Lapse
Furthermore, you can watch the shot shots on the display, you can choose the "trigger time", the distance of the motion sensor can be adjusted, as well as the length of the recording and even the IR sensor can be adjusted individually.
