How long does a wildlife camera last?

Depends on how many photos and videos you take, but with photos alone, a wildlife camera will last several months. if you record a lot of videos, it's about 1 to 2 months on average. A wildlife camera with solar panel can be a solution if you expect to record a lot of videos.

Does a wildlife camera work during the day and at night?

Yes, a wildlife camera works fully automatically 24 hours a day.

Where should I place a wildlife camera for best results?

Place your wildlife camera in strategic locations, such as watering holes, feeding areas, animal tracks, or narrow passages where animals pass. Make sure the camera is securely mounted on a stable surface to minimise movement. Wildlife cameras look straight ahead so if you want to record people, hang it at chest height. If you want to spot foxes, hang it around knee height, for example. Check out an extensive blog on wildlife camera placement here.

Is it legal to use wildlife cameras to observe animals?

In most cases, it is legal to use wildlife cameras for personal use, nature observation and hunting, as long as you follow the laws and regulations in your region. However, it may be illegal to use wildlife cameras for commercial purposes without proper permits. In your own garden/forest/home or estate then you may record anything you want. If you go on someone else's property, ask permission first.

Will animals come into my garden to record?

How can I extend the battery life of my wildlife camera?

To extend battery life, consider buying a long-life wildlife camera and using power-saving settings. You can also use external battery packs or connect solar panels for long-term power.

Taking photos costs less than recording lots and long videos.

How can I maintain my wildlife camera?

Maintain your wildlife camera by regularly checking the batteries and emptying the SD card. Clean the lens and sensor if necessary and make sure the camera is securely attached. On rainy or humid days, it is good to put the wildlife camera inside, open for a day every now and then to let all the moisture evaporate.
