The Bushnell CORE DS 4KS No Glow Trail Camera is an ideal tool for the wildlife professional or dedicated amateur, combining dual sensors for high quality images during the day or at night, invisible 'no glow' LEDs for minimal impact on sensitive wildlife and optimised battery life for maximum recording time.
With a fantastically rapid trigger speed of 0.15 seconds and a best-in-class 4k video capability, the DS 4KS ensures you can capture even the faster moving animals in superb quality, and its separate sensors ensure you have the best possible results when recording in day or night. It has a photo quality of up to 32MP, which assure fantastic images and the camera has been optimised for battery life which extends its deployment time. The compact design helps prevent the camera from being noticed by humans and animals alike. It features a number of user-friendly settings such as adjustable trigger intervals, meaning you can choose how often photos are taken (between 1 second and 60 mins). The number of images taken per trigger can be set between 1-3, and the video length per recording can be set between 5-60 seconds (max. 15 seconds at night). Video recording includes audio which can be particularly useful for detecting and listening back to animal calls. A 2x Field Scan allows you to take time lapse images (at your chosen interval) at two different times of the day. This function occurs alongside the usual movement trigger meaning you won’t lose out on any wildlife sightings. A hybrid mode is also available, meaning that the camera can capture a still image alongside video when triggered.
The CORE DS 4KS has a 2” colour screen which assists with mounting the camera in the desired position, as well as reviewing photos and videos in the field without having to remove the camera. The screen, SD slot menu buttons and battery release button are accessible using a front access panel, which is clasped shut to provide a tight seal. The 6 x AA batteries are stored in a removable tray which is accessible at the base of the camera.
Also available as a starter bundle which includes the trail camera, 8 x lithium AA batteries and a 32GB SD card.

Note: Although rechargeable batteries (of at least 2500mAh) can be used with trail cameras, they are not recommended due to their lower capacity and voltage. Therefore they are unlikely to operate the camera at it’s full potential, or as reliably when compared with standard Lithium batteries. If the use of rechargeable batteries is necessary we recommend Panasonic Eneloop Pro batteries which have been shown to perform well with trail cameras. Additionally, we recommend using an SD card with a minimum write speed of 10MB/s (also labelled as U1 or class 10).
