Capture 24MP photos or 1080p video of wildlife and people on your property or hunting grounds with this Core No-Glow Trail Camera in tan from Bushnell. Featuring a quick 0.3-second trigger speed, the Core will detect motion up to 100′ away, and automatically adjusts the intensity of the motion sensor based on temperature and humidity.
Its infrared flash also has a range of 100′, but won’t spook game or alert an intruder, and Multi-Flash Mode technology prevents overexposed flash photos at close range. You can set the camera to take from one to five still photos per trigger event and set the interval between triggered captures from 0.6 seconds to 60 minutes to avoid clogging up your card with redundant images.
The date, time, temperature, moon phase and user-set camera name are stamped on the photos. Video clips range from 5 to 60 seconds in length. Along with triggered images and videos, the Core can capture time-lapse photos at programmable intervals with its Field Scan feature. The Core can be mounted with the included web belt or by using the tripod socket on its base.
It has a USB port so you can connect it to your computer for viewing images or video, and an external power port for Bushnell’s separately sold solar panel.

I’ve had the pleasure to use several trail cameras. I found this one to have a standard set of options, fair amount of configurability and a nice screen. The controls are basic, M for menu, buttons for up down left right, and an E for enter in the middle.Having said that, this camera desperately needs a well printed instruction manual. The limited printout I ha paled in comparison to the very nice manual Bushnell has online. Without first reading the online manual, the user is left to guess what the M and E buttons do. Once I downloaded the online manual (below) the descriptions and images of the options helped a lot. The manual explains what untypical things like field scan and coordinate mean.The setup options are mostly typical but nice, the ability to choose how many photos an or how long of a video to take.I found the daylight video and photos to be very nice. I was surprised by the nice quality. The night photos were fair. I expect grainy but expected the camera to do a bit better. The night wasn’t bad but my expectations ha been set so high from the daylight images and video.The camera is smaller an lighter than past cameras I have used. I like the format. The latch to access the controls and display is actually a lot easier to open than any of the past trail cameras I’ve used.Overall… this is a great compact trail camera. Once you download the Core user manual, this becomes much more intuitive and simpler to use.Manual…Click on the Core camera on the Bushnell manual page. www .bushnell. com/trail-cameras/ (remove spaces)
I’ve used a Bushnell trail camera before and consider them to be an excellent value for the money, but for whatever reason, I found this one maddeningly confusing to set up. Even setting the date/time was quite frustrating, as the included printed instructions are little help and even the link to the online manual provides limited and unclear direction (and could you at least label the latch for the battery compartment please? It’s super convenient, but should be marked somewhere.) Customers should not have to search through various reviews all over the web and Youtube trying to glean various clues to complete the simplest of operations. Companies should assume that at least some of their customers have never used a product of this type before or are not technically proficient and consider hiring a tech writer/graphic design team who can ensure customers are actually able to use all the wonderful capabilities their products include.Fortunately, this trail cam is quite simplistic. Default settings will be adequate for most, and the photo quality, while not the sharpest or brightest I’ve seen, is more than adequate for spotting game or enjoying seeing what wildlife is hanging around your backyard domain.
This is fine for monitoring wildlife activity, but don’t expect to get any great pics.The included instructions are minimal, but the menus aren’t too difficult to navigate.It has a great sensitivity, and even captures small animals/movement.It also works at night, but again with low quality pics.(We had the camera placed/angled too high in these pics, but you should be able to get an idea of the photos it takes.)So. this would be great if you want to see how many animals are in the area–you can certainly tell which animals are there, how many, etc. But if you are looking for regular camera or phone quality videos, this isn’t the right choice.
Not a bad trail camera but also not the best. The night photos are a little grainy and blurred, not what I expect out of a top trail camera company like bushnell . Tons of options and modes which is nice to dial in your camera, only takes 6 batteries not 8 also nice and day pics and videos are good, just wish night pics and video was better other then that great camera
Becky (in NOLA) –
I have less expensive trail cameras, without the Bushnell name, that have done a better job. day light is average although rather dull and color contrast isn’t great. Night pictures are very disappointing. It has caught our resident trash panda and possum, we can tell what they are but the definition is very lacking. this would not be my first, or even second, choice as a game camera.It is easy to set up, takes standard lithium batteries, and is durably built. The standard size sd card (nothing over 32) is easy to insert and take out.

I’ve never used one of these trail cameras before so it was a bit hard for me to figure out the setup of this Bushnell 24MP CORE Trail Camera. Once figuring that out it operated fine. The images it produces are fairly good and look really good in daylight. The night photos are of course in that funny type of low light look.
I have several other no-name game cameras that cost approximately half the price of the Bushnell, but this is a much nicer unit. Much better built, great clarity, and the no glow feature is great. If you want the best – this is it.
