Product Description
Unlike trail cameras that trigger on short-range motion, the PlotWatcher HD TLV (Time-Lapse Video) captures images of an area regardless of how far the subject is from the camera. Using time-lapse HD video, it records activity at a much greater distance, covering an area 10 times greater than a traditional scouting camera. When set up at hunting locations, this greater field of view allows the hunter to see game and their travel patterns that would have gone undetected by traditional trail cameras. Images are taken every 5 or 10 seconds from dawn until dusk, producing a short HD video that, when reviewed with the included GameFinder software, will allow you to see a full day of activity in just a few minutes. Video is recorded to a USB drive (8GB recommended - not included). Provides over 7 days of daytime video on 4 AA batteries (not included). 3-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 2-3/4"D.

    This is an amazing new video camera that just came on the market. It is very easy to program. You do need to get a 4G or an 8G USB Flash Drive which you can pick up at [...] for $20.00 for the 8G. The videos are sharp and clear, the color excellent. It will take videos up to 12 hours a day with, or without a sleep mode during the afternoon. You can view the videos on your PC with the included software. Picks up movement great and handles well in rainstorms. Takes time lapse videos so you can see the whole day in minutes. Great camera.

    I have several trail cameras that we monitor several hundred acres. With a new area that was put in with a food plot the Plot Watcher Camera seemed to be the answer on which camera to use for this task.

    The concept is great and works well when you get it turned on. The only thing I would change is the on/off switch. Make it simple - green indicator for on and red indicator for off.

    I would recommend it to a friend but I would warn them about the difficulty about the on/off issue.

      Comments about PlotWatcher HD Time-Lapse Video Camera:

      This time lapse camera is very adjustable. It will take a picture as often as every 3 seconds if you want. It can also be set to low light conditions (not dark). You will have info on game movement from sunrise to sunset, the same as when you hunt. This is also good for home surveillance. Think someone is around your house when you're not? Set this on a window sill or in a nearby tree to watch when you can't.

      Comments about PlotWatcher HD Time-Lapse Video Camera:

      Bought 2 of these primarily for security after some lowlife broke into my cabin. I feel there is a good possibilty this lowlife will be back. These cameras are easily hidden and take excellent pics. All it takes is your imagination where to hide them. I cant say here because who knows who may be reading this and no sense in tipping anyone off here. Battery life seems to be excellent. I would suggest getting at least 8gb USB flash drive. I just bought 16gb and I think this will give me pics out to 2-3 weeks before filling memory. I will likely be buying the pro model soon.

      It works great, cannot make out points at far distances but definately if its a buck or a doe.
      Mount pole is flimsy a coon nocked mine over twice so you will need to use the supplied bungy to attach to a tree or something....overall it works as advertized and I am happy with that

      • Hunting

      Comments about PlotWatcher HD Time-Lapse Video Camera:

      I have 3 other Cudeeback Capture cameras, this camera is great because it catches so much more! It isn't trigered by motion which helps to capture game farther away. I will buy another soon, great software to view on a computer and save video. 5-6 days of video is good, and you will need batteries every 5-6 days, but the video is good, comes on at sunup- off at sunset. Hope this review helps. Easy to use!

        what comes with the plot watcher for mounting
        Asked on 12/31/2010 by Asher from Paducah Ky

        1 answer

        • A:

          It comes with a 5 piece plastic stake and two bungee cords. Camera is very light, so it is very easy to bungee to a tree or post. The plastic stake is suitable for use in soft ground or you can use the stake to raise the camera higher up a tree and actually bungee the stake to the tree or post. The camera has a threaded receptacle in the bottom that the stake, or a standard tripod, can screw into.

      • Q:

        Does this camara only take daytime pictures or can it take night pics also?
        Asked on 11/24/2010 by Mike the hunter from Poplarvillie, MS

        1 answer

        • A:

          The camera only takes pictures during the day. The reason for this is that most of the activity you capture will be quite a long way from the camera. At night, you will not be able to illuminate the subject at such a distance. Remember that this camera is designed to scout a large area, not just that area within 40-50 feet of your traditional trail camera. Hope this helps.

      • Q:

        Do you have to review pictures daily??? if not,how many days will it take pic's.??? what's the battery life???
        Asked on 9/4/2010 by Wayne-o from shelby,nc

        1 answer

        • A:

          You do not have to check the videos daily. With an 8G USB Flash Drive, it will take videos for 80 days before the Flash Drive is full. You have to purchase the Flash Drive at Walmart for about $20.00. If you set the camera to take a 12 hour non-stop video, the batteries will last about 7 days. If you program a mid-day sleep mode, it will increase the battery life. It's a great camera. The videos are sharp and clear.

        • A:

          Software that comes with the camera that you load into your computer. Easy to view and save on a computer also. I don't think they can be viewed any other way. Hope this helps Joe.
