New trail camera offers bigger, better view of the natural world

Trail cameras have become standard equipment among hunters and wildlife watchers in recent years, but a new unit on the market offers an even bigger, better view of the natural world.

Moultrie Products recently released its first panoramic game camera, the Panoramic 150. The 8.0 megapixel camera uses three infrared motion sensors and a silently moving lens to cover a superwide, 150-degree detection area.

That’s three times the area of a typical game camera.

The Panoramic 150 offers the choice of two capture modes: In Panoramic Mode, the camera captures three photos from each 50-degree zone and assembles them into a single150-degree image. In Single Mode, the camera detects game and then silently rotates the lens to capture individual widescreen photos and videos from the area where motion is detected. The single image or video will provide a 50-degree field of view.

The Panoramic 150 also provides clear images with a low-glow infrared flash that reaches up to 100 feet at night. The camera’s “Motion Freeze” feature reduces nighttime blur, leaving no question how many points are on that trophy buck. Plus, video is captured in 720p high definition for clear footage.

The Panoramic 150 features time-lapse and multishot modes, and its camouflage finish will keep the camera undetected. The camera will capture as many as 9,000 images on a set of six C-cell batteries.

Suggested retail price is $249.99. Info:
