Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 16/20

While rated at "only" 80 feet detection, we have seen detection well beyond 100 feet.
Detection range by Browning HD Pro X

Speed: 8/10

The camera speed is outstanding, and even the video trigger is super fast.

Accuracy: 8/10

It takes a lot of wind to get false triggers from this model, and the accuracy is perhaps even better than other Browning offerings rated at a higher detection range.

Battery Life: 7/10

Considering this camera only needs six AA batteries, the battery life is impressive. But unfortunately, it will not last as long as other Browning models using eight batteries.

Daylight Images: 5/10

Compared with other Browning models, the daylight images are somewhat grainier. Also, the colors are dull and would benefit from a higher saturation.

Lowlight Images: 6/10

Low light images are somewhat grainy but still considerably better than most other brands.

Night Images: 7/10

Night images and videos are solid. The infrared illumination provides enough light for near objects but is not strong enough for anything beyond 50 feet.

Design: 12/20

Overall, the camera is solid, and the adjustable mount provides additional flexibility. While the day images are average, the night images are pretty good. The excellent detection range and battery life make this model attractive, but only if you can find the camera at a discount. At full retail price, we would recommend other Browning models.

Verdict: 69/100

Overall, very balanced camera, delivering the picture and detection quality you would expect from Browning. However, at $169.00 MSRP, we recommend spending just a bit more and getting one of the premium offerings from Browning. With that being said, the adjustable bracket provides additional flexibility where a regular mount would not work, so it is an excellent option to have in your arsenal. Unfortunately, as Browning cameras are not lockable, and anybody can open the camera and take the card out, the only security option is to use a security box. Therefore, if you have to lock your camera, you will not benefit from the adjustable mount.

Questions & Answers

When putting the date in the camera, is it the English way 01/06/2023 or American way 06/01/2023

Hi. My husband passed away last year and I found this trail cam among his hunting supplies. There was no instruction manual with it. How or where do the batteries go? I see a brown panel thing on the bottom but it doesn’t come off very easily. Help
This is a frequently encountered issue with some Browning models. When pressing the battery tray release button, it sometimes remains stuck, requiring a significant amount of force to remove the tray. If you find it challenging to gain a grip with your hands, you may need to employ a small screwdriver or a butter knife to carefully slide the tray out further.
