The A-5 Low Glow Infrared Game Camera from Moultrie is a trail camera that is designed to capture clear photos and video of wildlife with its 5MP CMOS image sensor. It has a passive infrared motion sensor that triggers the shutter to take a photo or start recording video at 640 x 480 resolution. Illumination is provided by the built-in Low Glow 12-LED flash, which has an effective range of up to 50' at night. The camera is equipped with a small LCD text screen that displays settings. Phase of the moon, time and date are stamped onto your images. The A-5 records files onto an SD or SDHC memory card up to 32GB in capacity and runs on four C-cell alkaline batteries (not included).

5MP Resolution
At the heart of the camera is a CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 5MP
PIR Motion Sensor
Passive infrared sensor detects the changes in temperature that occur when subjects move and captures images in response. Delay between photos is 1, 5, 10 or 30 min
Video Recording
Capture movies at 640 x 480 resolution
Low-Light Shooting
Illuminates subjects with built-in Low Glow 12-LED flash, which has an effective range of up to 50' at night
LCD
Small text screen displays settings
Date and Time Stamp
The camera records the date and time of capture on your images
Moon Phase Stamp
The camera stores moon phase data on its internal memory chip. By recording the phase of the moon at the time of capture on your photo, it allows you to see which animals are inactive during a full or nearly-full moon--when the brighter lighting conditions will make them more visible to predators. Moon phase also helps you determine if brighter or darker backgrounds in your images are due to the fullness of the moon
Connectivity
Features a mini-USB port (cable sold separately) and an external power port for the optional Moultrie PowerPanel or Battery Box, which will extend the life of your camera in the field
Memory
Accepts SD/SDHC memory cards up to 32GB in capacity
Power
Runs on 4 C-cell alkaline batteries (not included)

      The camera does what a $[$] camera can do, it takes day and night pictures when motion sensor gets triggered. Most of my daytime pictures are underexposed with very poor shadow details. Most night time pictures are blur, but still can tell deer silhouette. The effective range of motion sensor is about 20ft; trigger speed is slow around 1.5~2 sec. Half of my pictures missed the triggering animals. For $20 more, last year's model D55IRXT is a much better camera than this A-5.

      Comments about Moultrie A-5 Low Glow Infrared Game Camera:

      Works well. I placed this in our garden to monitor activity since some of our veggies were being eaten.
      It picked up the movement of a crow and tree movement as well. I am disappointed in the quality of the photo. Even zoomed in it is difficult to tell whats going on.

      Comments about Moultrie A-5 Low Glow Infrared Game Camera:

      I use this more for surveillance than wildlife. It works well for my purpose but I had to change locations as the sway of the tree it was mounted on caused lots of false photos. The same for windy days but that improved after removing some branches nearby. The night video is good but the red glow of the lights are obvious to an intruder but not a problem for wildlife. It is less a problem for single shots only a brief second of red. I notice that the motion sensor only picks motion that is very close 30 feet or so but the photos are of all in sight. I am pleased with this unit and may get another for wildlife. Rabbits and squirrels will trigger the motion. Video will fill up the card in a hurry if you get may false triggers. Locking it is a problem. I wanted to place it near my mailbox to observe tampering but could not use it since it would need to be close to the motion source, is quite visible and may get stolen. I needed to download photos to be sure what was in focus.

          should house in some protective "shell" from rain when rainfall high. Have above so no one can steal and hidden, North or South location prolongs IR detector

            Comments about Moultrie A-5 Low Glow Infrared Game Camera:

            We wanted a camera to photograph animals in our yard. This camera is perfect for that. Setup is easy. The low resolution 5mp sensor will not allow large blowups but the quality is good enough to identify animals by markings in daytime photos and in the closer nighttime shots. Flash range is at most 30 ft. but is best between about 3 and 15 ft. Build is solid and appears to be reasonably water proof. It is difficult to tell but the motion sensor range is at least 15 feet with the camera angled slightly down for the small animals. Got 5 cold days out of standard batteries and still going.

                We use the camera to record cats eating at our feeding stations. We have a feral cat rescue and sometimes don't know if raccoons or skunks are getting the food before the cats do. This helps us determine what time the cats are coming to eat and if in fact it's them eating! Seems to work pretty well and easy to set up. I wish it had a playback feature so I don't have to bring the SD card to my computer, but for the price, you can't beat it..

                      We use it for hunting. The night time pictures suck!! And sometimes in the early moring they aren't the greatest either. It takes really good day time ones though. Don't know if there is something we could do different or better.

                                    I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a trail cam. This was perfect. Easy to use, worked first time I put it out. With the sd card you can take a bunch of pictures. Night and day shots were excellent. This camera will get the job done and not cost you a fortune.

                                      You will see some people leave negative feedback but some people need to realize that these cams will take black pictures if fog or their are sunlight issues, you will also get pics of nothing sometimes..that's because the camera is taking pics of moving branches, weeds, etc.I have owned many cameras. For $ this camera will get you the results you need. Put a fresh 4-8 GB card in it and you will get great photos. Realistic conditions I get about 3-4 weeks on the batteries. This cam is awesome for the money!

                                              I am most pleased by the Game Camera by Moultrie.
                                              This is my first experience setting up and using a game camera. I am surprised by the ease of the set up and by the quality of the pictures.

                                                        For the money you can't beat this camera. It isn't the best one out but it works great, the pics are clear day and night. For what I want this is perfect. I don't want to spend $2 or $300 on a camera and it get stolen, so this is a perfect camera to see what on your property and if its stolen your not out a ton of money.
