Moultrie Camera Series

Moultrie packs a lot of technology into its trail cameras, which makes them reliable and tough. Moultrie also makes a trail camera for every hunter’s needs.  Below is a breakdown of the key features found in the various Moultrie cameras that will help you decide which series and model is right for your hunting needs.

Image Resolution

Pixel resolution is one of the first specs a buyer looks at when comparing game cameras. It’s true that a higher resolution is a good thing to have, but other factors play a role in image quality as well. The quality of the sensor is as important as megapixels. Moultrie selects the best possible grade of sensors for each performance and price category. Our camera resolution ranges from 12 to 21 megapixels depending on model and offers advanced nighttime sensors, too.

Video Resolution

Just as pixels can determine image quality, they can also affect video resolution. A higher pixel count means that the video will be clearer when enlarged on your computer screen. All Moultrie cameras offer High Definition video — 1280x720p and 1920x1080p. Be sure to look at what each camera series offers if this is important to you.

Trigger Speed

One of the key measures of trail camera performance is trigger speed. Generally speaking, a faster trigger speed means there’s less chance of missing the animal. But field of view is also a factor, since a fast trigger speed could take a picture before the animal is fully in view. Moultrie designs its cameras to deliver fast trigger speeds with the correct field of view to provide the best images possible.

Detection Range vs. Illumination Range

Detection range is the maximum distance that a camera can detect the motion of an animal. Illumination range is the maximum distance that the camera can effectively illuminate the animal. A game camera can have a long detection range, and it won’t matter if the flash can’t reach that distance. Moultrie always offers illumination capabilities that match or exceed the camera’s detection distance.

Illumination Method

No-glow capabilities like Moultrie’s iNVISIBLE Infrared LED flash are the ultimate in nighttime illumination because it is virtually impossible for the flash to be seen by an animal. Moultrie’s Long-Range Infrared LED is a low-glow flash that’s also very good at capturing images without alerting game. Animals can only detect the flash if they are looking directly at the camera at the moment of illumination. Based on your knowledge of the animals where you hunt, you might prefer a non-visible flash over the low-glow flash. The trade-off for the iNVISIBLE flash is that you lose about 10 to 20 feet of flash range compared to low-glow.

Infostrip Data

Most hunters use their cameras to pattern deer. The more information available, the better they understand what the deer are doing. All Moultrie cameras provide time, date, and moon phase info on the infostrip. As you move up the series, you gain additional data, including temperature and barometric pressure. If you plan to use your camera with a Moultrie Mobile Cellular Modem then you’ll be able to filter through images using all of the infostrip data. These are things to keep in mind when thinking about your hunting needs and what each series offers.

Moultrie Mobile Compatible

Moultrie Mobile lets you view the very latest images captured on your camera from the comfort of your home, or the convenience of your smartphone. And that means no more trips to the game camera just to pull the SD cards and download images. Depending on the plan, using Moultrie Mobile with your trail camera can cost as little $9.99 per month, requires no contract, operate independently of your cell-phone provider and you can cancel anytime. Most Moultrie Series cameras from 2015 to current are Moultrie Mobile ready. (See full list at moultriemobile.com)
