Intro

The Spec Ops Elite HP5 from Browning Trail Cameras can take 24-megapixel photos and 1080P HD videos with sound. Daytime photos and videos are full color, but nighttime images are black and white and limited to only 20 seconds. In addition, the Elite HP5 camera is equipped with invisible RADIANT 5 nighttime illumination, a blazingly fast 0.1 seconds trigger, a 2-inch color screen for easy setup, and up to 100 ft. motion detection range. Unfortunately, the camera lacks door latch security, and a correctly fitting security box is also currently unavailable from the manufacturer. The Spec Ops Elite HP5 trail cam is powered by eight AA batteries and is compatible with NiMH rechargeable batteries. Like all Browning cameras, the HP5 can accept up to 512 GB SDXC memory cards.

False Trigger 4 example shows at least two mice in the back! So no false trigger, but very high sensitivity!

Trailcam.org Response: Good catch, and thanks for pointing it out! In two months span, this camera took close to two thousand videos. 98% of those videos were false triggers caused by wind and moving grass. We randomly picked a few false trigger videos; one just happened to have a tiny mouse. As you can see, the first three samples have no mice, yet the cam was triggered. We have multiple of these units and thousands of false trigger samples. It's a good camera, but once the temperatures rise above 70F, the faulty trigger issue is out of control.

As all other trail cam retailers, and even the manufacturers, you are advertising an grossly inflated resolution (24Mp!). The actual resolution of the camera is the resolution of the sensor: 4 Mp. Period.
