New for 2017 is the Minox DTC390 – an all-rounder camera trap at the affordable end of the market. The DTC 390 is Minox’s most compact camera trap yet, and boast some impressive features.
It takes up to 1080p HD video footage at 15fps and 720p at 30fps – with a video length up to 5 minutes, longer than the majority of cameras allow. Images are 12MP from a 5MP sensor, meaning they are crisp and well-defined.
The DTC 390’s 42 No-Glow LEDs also mean that it has enough to illuminate large spaces very well, up to a distance of around 49ft, and can be turned down if needed for work in smaller spaces. A convenient built-in colour screen means images and videos can be played back on the camera itself. This feature is not found in many other rival camera traps at this price point.
