Browning BTC 8FHD overview

  • 1Description

A dedicated camera designed to capture photos and videos of wildlife in a discreet manner, the Spec FHD Trail Camera from Browning features a 10MP CMOS sensor that is capable of recording both still imagery and full HD 1920 x 1080 video. The integrated PIR motion sensor automatically triggers shooting with 0.67 seconds when a moving subject is detected within a 55' foot range, and when used at nighttime, the built-in "Night Vision" infrared LED flash will clearly record subjects within a 70' range without spooking the wildlife. Combining the infrared illumination with a 1/20 sec. shutter speed, Zero Blur technology also helps to freeze moving subjects for greater clarity. Timelapse and Timelapse Plus modes can be used to set predefined shooting intervals throughout the day while Multi-Shot and Rapid Fire modes automatically record up to eight individual frames in quick succession to better ensure clear framing of moving subjects. The imaging components are housed within a compact casing that is covered with a camouflage pattern to blend into woods scenes for more inconspicuous shooting.

The Spec Ops FHD can record both video and photos onto an SD/SDHC memory card up to 32GB, and also features TV out and USB ports to help streamline offloading and playing back footage. It runs on either eight AA batteries or via an external power source that can be connected using the 12V power jack. A 1/4"-20 mounting socket permits attaching to a tripod or other stand or, alternatively, a 6'-long nylon strap can also be used to attach the camera to a tree or other post.

  • 10MP CMOS sensor records stills and full HD 1920 x 1080 videos
  • Video recording times can range from 5 seconds to 2 minutes
  • Built-in microphone records sound with movies
  • The built-in fixed-focus lens renders subjects in focus from 3' to infinity and has a 55° field of view
  • Zero Blur technology combines infrared illumination, a 1/20th sec. shutter speed, and apt processing speed to render subjects sharply without excessive movement
  • The Night Vision infrared flash illuminates subjects at nighttime within a 700' range
  • Motion-activated PIR (passive infrared) sensor detects subjects within a 55' range
  • A 0.67-second triggering speed helps to ensure even fast-moving subjects are recorded
  • 2.1-second picture recovery time
  • Timelapse mode captures images at preset intervals of 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds, as well as 1, 2, or 5 minutes
  • Timelapse Plus mode uses the same interval settings with the addition of activating the motion sensor simultaneously to ensure not missing any subject movement
  • Interval settings can be applied within a specified duration of 2, 3, or 4 hours, which can be set to start recording just after sunset, prior to sunrise, or during the daytime
  • Multi-Shot mode will capture 1-8 frames in sequence when the camera is triggered, with 3 second intervals between frames
  • Rapid Fire mode capture up to 8 sequential frames with 0.3 second intervals
  • Programmable picture delay setting between 5 seconds and 60 minutes
  • A motion test aids in aiming the camera, and when motion is detected a red LED indicator will confirm motion is being detected within the frame
  • An information bar can be embedded onto the bottom of each frame, and will display the time, date, temperature in °F or °C, moon phase, and camera ID
Physical Design
  • Part of the Spec Ops Series, the camera is housed within a compact 5 x 4 x 2.5" case
  • Controls are backlit for easier programming in low-light conditions
  • Camouflage finish blends in to woods scenes
  • One SD or SDHC memory card, up to 32GB capacity, can be used to record imagery

    Browning BTC 8FHD reviews

    Spec Ops FHD Trail Camera is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Curious to know how many cameras to buy before one works. I have this camera positioned on my back yard after seeing a bear 3 nights in a row before i bought the camera. Because of the poor performance of all brands we read we chose to buy two cameras in case one didn't work. The first night we put out the Browning Recon Force. Did not work at all. Then we put out the Spec Ops. It was raining that night. Motion was detected and the camera was set to take 8 standard pics. It took eight shots with nothing in it. Half hour later our motion detector light went on about 70 ft away and the camera detected motion as well and took the first pic of an animal the size of a cat and the next 7 pics were blank. The animal was 30 ft dead center of the pic. We could not make out what it was as the picture was so blurred. The camera failed,in day light, to detect my husband retrieving the SD card at 45 ft as he hung the bird feeder. He proceeded to walk directly at the camera and it did not take a pic until he was within 20 feet. The camera failed to detect a test of pulling a large pail across the front of the camera with a rope at 25 feet. We also knew that an animal had dug for at least 30 min if front of the camera and defecated a few times without being detected at close range and withing range not even when the animal was right in front of the lens digging around the tree it was on. The day quality is not the same as a cell phone , tablet or regular cameras at all. The night shots only light up an area barely 40 ft and that is with a security light showing up the area to some extent. The area was dim at best.There is no point in trying other features when it can't take a pic on the trial mode.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good video camera One of the best video-cameras. Full HD video with good color and sharpness. When the camera starts it goes a second or so to adjust color, after that it shows real high quality video. I just have daylight videos, have not seen any IR-vdeos yet. But it still deserves the 4 stars. I will just use it in video-mode. The pictures in normal photo-mode are worse.
