About the Trophy Cam
The Bushnell Trophy Cam is a digital scouting camera. It can be triggered
by any movement of game in a location, detected by a highly sensitive
Passive Infra-Red (PIR) motion sensor, and then take high quality pictures
(up to 8MP still photos), or video clips.
The Trophy Cam consumes very little power (less than 300mA) in a stand-
by (surveillance) state. This means it can deliver up to six months stand-by
operation time when the device is powered by twelve AA alkaline batteries,
and up to twelve months utilizing lithium AA batteries. Once motion in the
monitored area is detected, the digital camera unit will be triggered at once
(typically within one second) and then automatically take photos or videos
according to previously programmed settings. The Trophy Cam is equipped
with built-in infrared LEDs that function as a ﬂash, so that it delivers clear
photos or videos (in black & white) even in the dark, and it can take color
photos or videos under sufﬁcient daylight. The Trophy Cam is designed for
outdoor use and is resistant against water and snow.
The Trophy Cam can be used as a trail camera for hunting or scouting
game. It is also suitable for surveillance usage.
PARTS AND CONTROLS
The Trophy Cam provides the following connections for external devices:
USB port, SD card slot, A/V Out, and external DC power in (Fig. 1).
A 3-way power switch is used to select the main operating modes: OFF,
SETUP, and ON (Fig. 2).
A control key interface with six keys is primarily used in SETUP mode to
select operational functions and parameters. As shown in Fig. 2, these keys
are: UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, OK and MENU. Four of the keys can also
perform a second function (shortcut operations in SETUP mode) in addition
to their main function: The DOWN key can be used to set the camera to
Photo mode (still camera icon), and the UP key can set the camera to Video
mode (movie camera icon). The RIGHT key also serves as the manual shutter
(“SHOT”) button of the camera and the OK key switches the camera to
the Playback (“REPLAY”) mode. These secondary functions are indicated by
icons or text above the key as shown in Fig. 2.
