Meidase P60 72/100

Manufacturer: Meidase

Review

The Meidase P60 trail camera is an affordable camera capable of 32-megapixel resolution photos and 1296P high-def videos with sound. The P60 model is available in two camo flavors. The Meidase P60 has three sensors; the trigger speed is listed at only 0.1 seconds and has 90 feet of detection range. In addition, the camera's infrared flash can reach up to 100 feet. The P60 trail camera is compatible with a standard Python cable lock, and the door latch can be secured with a small padlock. The large screen is bright enough and provides an easy setup. On the other hand, the dedicated start button is somewhat confusing. The memory card slot is easy to access and can fit large memory cards up to 512GB. The Meidase P60 camera will run on eight AA alkaline or lithium batteries. The supplied strap is of good quality but somewhat short. The manufacturer offers similar models with WiFi and Cellular options, but the P60 does not have those capabilities, hence the much lower price.

Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 12/20

The detection range of the updated P60 model is better than previous Meidase cameras but still only about 50-60 feet.

Two White-tailed Does

Speed: 5/10

The video trigger is only average, and faster animals are often about to exit the picture before the camera start recording.

Two Sandhill Cranes

Accuracy: 9/10

The accuracy of this inexpensive unit is pretty impressive. When the sensitivity option is set to Low, we have seen a minimal number of false triggers on extremely windy days. However, when the detection sensitivity option is set to Medium or High, the number of false triggers would increase considerably.

Super Windy Day

Battery Life: 8/10

Especially in picture mode, the Meidase and GardePro cameras have pretty good battery life if you can avoid false triggers. The P60 is also performing well thus far. However, the battery life will decrease considerably when the side detection sensors are enabled. While not recommended by the manufacturer, we have successfully used rechargeable batteries during the warmer months. We do not recommend using rechargeable or even alkaline batteries in the winter. 


Daylight Images: 9/10

Daytime images are bright and sharp but would benefit from a slightly more color saturation. Overall, especially considering the low price, the daytime images are outstanding.

Lowlight Images: 8/10

Lowlight images are a little more grainy but still acceptable. Also, compared to previous versions, the P60 is switching to the nighttime B&W monochrome mode sooner. That change has improved the image quality during dusk and down.

Night Images: 7/10

The P60 is equipped with standard infrared illumination, and as with most trail cameras, nighttime images are black & white. The night images are not too grainy, but the flash is somewhat centered, resulting in uneven illumination.
