Intro

The Camparkcam TC06 is a dual-lens, 120 degrees ultra-wide angle lens trail camera capable of 60-megapixel still pictures or 4K high-def videos powered by a Sony IMX458 chip. Photo and video modes have separate resolution settings for day and night. The resolution The camera uses traditional infrared illumination that, under ideal conditions, will also capture color images even under low light or at night, thanks to its Starlight Night Vision function. The TC06 also has WiFi and Bluetooth but no cellular connectivity option. The game camera has three motion sensors, and the manufacturer lists the trigger speed at only 0.1 seconds. The detection range is listed at only 65 feet, but we have seen detection past 80 feet. A  standard SD card of up to 128GB is supported. The camera uses eight AA batteries and can be secured with a standard cable lock.

Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 16/20

That manufacturer lists the detection range as 20 meters (65 feet), but we have seen triggers past 80 feet.


Speed: 8/10

The trigger speed is excellent, and even the video trigger is almost instant.


Accuracy: 8/10

As we deployed our game camera during the colder temperatures, we have not experienced any significant issues with false triggers. However, this may change once the temperatures rise, as more trail cameras are only sensitive to the wind during the summer.


Battery Life: 8/10

We are using regular AA Duracell brand alkaline batteries for our first test. The camera is in video mode and has been deployed for about six weeks. The battery status is showing 70%.


Daylight Images: 9/10

Daytime pictures and videos are excellent. The images are sharp, and considering the 120 degrees ultra-wide field of view, the distortion is minimal.

Lowlight Images: 7/10

Under low light, the images are still very good, but we were hoping for more color images when it gets dark.

Night Images: 8/10

Similarly to lowlight images, we were hoping for nighttime color imagery. Again, we were able to produce full-color videos while testing at home, but for some reason, we are not having much luck getting color images in the field. Other than that, the infrared LED illumination produces high-quality nighttime pictures and videos, but the flash is visible to human eyes and may spook some animals.
