Default Victure Trail Camera Reviews

Just wandering if anyone on here has experience with these trail cams. Great price and great reviews on Amazon. Always need a few cameras deep in the woods.

Bought one but will be putting it out this weekend. We'll see. Seems very similar to the Campark I bought from there last year and Ive been happy with that one.

I've had 2 Victure cameras for a couple of years now and they work well for the price. I would rather have 2 of these that I can set up in different spots than one that is more expensive and only have 1 set up.

My camera arrived the next day, thanks to Amazon Prime.
We see just a few deer behind our house, we see them maybe every couple of weeks. I have not seen anything other than 3-4 does and 2 or 3 fawns/yearlings all year, not a single buck. A few days ago, 3 does and a yearling came out into the yard and ate acorns under one of our oak trees. I strapped this new camera to this tree, shooting across the mowed grass for 60+ yards in the direction deer came from the other day. I just pulled the 4 GB card and it was full. Every single picture was of the yard. I set it out at 10:07 AM and before noon the card was full, it took 195 pictures and videos in less than 2 hours. There was nothing that could be blowing and causing false triggers. I am going to lower the sensitivity, but so far I am very disappointed.

Sorry to hear that Keith, sounds like a dud. I have the sensitivity on Med and its been working well, may try that as you mentioned. If that doesn't work Prime will of course swap it out or refund you. Luck brother.

I changed the sensitivity to low and changed the SD card after posting above. I'll check the camera in a couple of days and see how it's working. I'll walk in front of the camera at about 50 yards then zig-zag towards the camera to see how far it first detects my movement. Hopefully the 8 GB card won't be full of false pics be then.

Pulled the pictures from mine this weekend and I'm not impressed with the picture quality. They are very grainy/blurry unless the deer are only inches away. Night time pics are almost worthless. This is from the HC200 model, link in the original post.

The Campark I have which is about the same price takes much better pics.

Great,
I just got one of the HC200's in the mail but ain't liking the sound of this.....
good thing it's an Amazon purchase. I can send it back if it doesn't pass the sniff test.

Oh boy, looks like I'll need to mount it inside the feed pen .

It's headed to the lease or Amazon come Wednesday.
Looks Like I need to set it up in the backyard and let the dogs do some sorties overnight to see what I think.

Yea the feeder is only about 12 yds away in those pics...Over 3000 pics and the only ones that I could really make out were of deer right up next to the camera.

Weíll Iím gonna gamble on it as Iím making a lease run tomorrow morning and wanted another camera on a secondary feeder at one of my spots.
Sort of a backup camera.

I set mine out in the backyard and took decent enough pics of the dogs and a cat running by. Both day and night pics.
One of the customer reviews states this only a 5mp camera, not a 12 as advertised- the pics i took are fine for a 5mp camera and zoomed on just fine.
I would send yours back asap. I think you got a dud.

The best cheap camera I have come across are the $38 dollar Tascos at WallyWorld.
There is a cheaper version of the Tasco. But, the $38 one works well for the money. I was in a pinch and bought a couple. They have not given me any issues.

Funny enough I bought one of those varieties a few years ago snd returned it pronto due to failing the backyard test. Maybe theyíve improved them since then.

I finally got some deer pictures to show the picture quality of this 16 MP camera. I had to reduce the sensitivity to low or I got tons of false picture in this exact spot. As you can see, the grass is mowed so there's nothing to cause the blank pictures.
I did have to reduce the pictures for them to post from my computer. On a side note, It's been so long since I posted pictures from my computer that I almost couldn't remember how. LOL I have been posting them from my phone for years now.

Looks good enough to me.

I donít see a way to reduce the sensitivity of the HC200, hopefully that wonít plague me.

As far as posting pics, Iíve gotten lazy and will just take pics of the laptop screen and post those .

Look great to me. Wondering now if I don't have the resolution set to low on my 12 mp or if it's really just a dud. Have to check...

Mine does have some false triggers also but only on hot afternoons so it wasn't too bad.

I bought the Lightning Deal cam. I set it up in my office today and it worked great. Took a pic every 5 minutes like it was supposed to do. Make sure you follow the directions to set it up and format the SD card. It had a few more steps then my other cameras.

Mine came from the factory set on 5 MP. I changed it to 16 MP and it worked great.

I would pass.

Mine only took 82 pictures in a weeks time of a feeder with heavy traffic, and half the pics were just ok at best. I had it set at 16mp and it only takes one pic at a time on that setting. I'm moving it next trip out to a feeder with less traffic and will reduce the mp's to allow for more pics per activation.

I walked the camera isle at wally world the other day and they had several in this price range or a smidge more that looked to be worth the gamble. At least those have name brands you recognize.
