About this product

The Spec Ops Advantage is a weatherproof, motion-activated trail camera that records HD videos (1280 x 720p at 60fps) and 20MP images onto an SD card (up to 512 GB SDXC memory cards supported). It utilises a passive infrared (PIR) sensor that activates the camera whenever motion is sensed within its monitoring range. Records images and videos in full colour during the day and records in black and white at night using infrared LED illumination that is almost invisible to humans and wildlife.

The Spec Ops Advantage features the highest quality 20MP image resolution as well as an invisible, adjustable power “Night Vision” IR illumination that reaches out to 24m (80 ft). The trigger speed is adjustable from 0.4 - 0.7 seconds and the recovery time between pictures is 0.6 seconds. The new Spec Ops Advantage camera also features an incredible 1920 x 1080 Full HD video processor, capable of producing excellent video footage that can be easily viewed on a computer or TV. You can capture up to 8 multishot images and 8 rapid-fire images as well as set a time-lapse with the Spec Ops Advantage's Timelapse Plus camera mode Additional features include a 2“ colour view screen on the front of the camera and Smart IR video, which allows the camera to continue recording video footage while a subject is moving in front of the camera.  The innovative SD card management options allow you to overwrite older images on the SD card if the memory is full to ensure that you always have the most current information. Powered by x8 AA batteries and has a battery meter that works with both alkaline and lithium batteries.

  • Garden fox
    By Stuart 10 Apr 2019 Written for Browning Spec Ops Advantage - Starter Bundle
    My wife bought me the camera for my birthday, partly triggered by the fact that something, we suspected a Fox, had dug a substantial burrow under the shed at the bottom of the garden. Using the trail cam we have confirmed that it is indeed a Fox's earth and, in the last few days, three very small cubs have appeared! We initially set up the camera on a post near the earth and were immediately successful in getting loads of still pictures of the Fox going in and out - a few in daylight and lots, via the IR flash, at night. It was easy enough to set up and configure and the results are fine. Don't expect exhibition quality photos - but more than adequate to identify the beast and monitor its activities. Capturing videos (with sound) of mom and her cubs is particularly nice. We have also moved the camera to various places around the garden to confirm where she goes in and out.

    The one problem I had was that I initially put a set of 8 new Duracell "plus power" AAs in. Showed 100% battery. This worked fine for about 8 days and then it stopped working. When I checked it out, it was showing red "LOW BATTERY" message. I thought maybe it was because the cells had got really cold (we had several nights with a mild frost when the temperature dropped to 1-3°C), but when I brought the whole thing indoors and warmed it up, the batteries checked out as "good" on my battery meter. But, when put back in, the battery level would show 28-30% and then rapidly fall - like 1% per second - to below 20%, the red warning came back and the camera shut down. I also tried a set of rechargeable (freshly charged Pansonic Enloop Pro 2500mAh that I use for my flashguns) and, with 8 of these in the battery tray, the camera will not even turn on! So I gave up and bought a set of the "recommended" Energiser Lithium cells (£10 worth!). Since then it has worked fine and still shows 100% after a couple of weeks of nightly use.

    So, the device works well, is easy to use and produces acceptable results, but I only give it 3 stars because of the rather unsatisfactory battery performance.
