Scoutguard Dual bIRD, small creatures/CLOSE-UP & FAR TRAIL CAMERA

This is a trail camera which can be switched between short range and long (standard) range object capture. In short range it is specifically designed for the capture of close range creatures - birds, small mammals and other small creatures just like the SG570BW. The Scoutguard SG562BW bird watch camera provides sharp, blur free 12 megapixel and HD video close up 0.3 to 1 meters (1 to 4 feet). The SG562BW is 940nm for invisible night vision and so won't attract attention. Battery life in standby is 3 months+. This model however also has the option of being switched into standard capture mode which will provide sharp high quality images of object from 1.5 meters to infinity.

If you wish to capture birds, rodents amphibians and snakes then this is the camera for you. If you also want to capture a person close range without blur then this camera is also for you (above your porch/front door, set in a tree or similar scenario. While other non-specialist trail cameras may blur the motion, the camera is set to minimize it and we have found it does fill that niche very well. Designed to focus without blurring on close up creatures stationary or in motion. The camera has a 0.8 second response time and is set to a fast shutter speed.

The main advantage of the SG562BW is that it can also can be set to far object (standard mode), in which it reverts to a normal trail camera and will provide a clear image on objects from 1.5 meters to infinity. Includes 8GB memory and built in LCD viewer.
