Intro

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: 6/10

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 an invisible 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.

I gave this rating due to the fact I had 5 fail at one time. Warranty department only sent 1 replacement. Have to keep on them for the other replacements. Still waiting on 2 more replacement cameras since I placed my claim in October.

I own one of these. As this video shows, the night vision is not very sharp. Nothing appears to be focused. I have the same issue with mine. Daylight vision is excellent, however.

Internal circuit malfunctioned while sitting on my shelf for four years. At least that is what I was told by the seller.

VISIBLE FLASH ! This is NOT a no-glow camera, despite what everything says.

The video is very good, both during the day and night. The audio is not great on my camera. It only picks up sounds (like people talking) when they are very close to the camera. Note that I only have one camera, so it could be just this one.

Questions & Answers

i am looking for a security box for this camera.
Unfortunately, we are unaware of a security box compatible with this camera. We tried using a Browning security box, but the Meidase P60 is just a bit too large and will not fit.

Just got my Meidase P60 trail camera a week ago. Tried to set it up using the manual and selected the right settings. It's only taking about 10 pic. at night. What am I doing wrong? Help - Noelle in Florida

i cannot figure out the setting to wait between pictures? I get a burst of 2 or 3 pics then right away it takes more pictures. I would like to wait a minute or more between bursts? Is that possible?

my p60 wont let the picture card lock in place. so it wont record. thanks

Having troubles connecting

I have tons of wildlife in my backyard. This camera captured many night time pics in the course of the week I had it out. Recently I get no night pics! After an entire week in the woods there was nothing but a couple of day pics, Any thoughts?
Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take to address the problem:

IR LEDs: Ensure the infrared LEDs are functioning at night.
Battery Power: Replace with fresh batteries since night mode requires more power.
Sensitivity Settings: Increase the motion sensitivity for night-time.
Memory Card: Confirm it's not full and is properly inserted.
Camera Test: Manually test the camera's night capture by triggering it yourself after dark.

Keep in mind that environmental factors like weather, temperature, and even the phase of the moon can affect animal activity and might result in fewer animals triggering the camera at night. However, if there are no captures at all and you've ruled out environmental factors, then it's likely a technical issue with the camera, and you might want to contact Meidase support for further assistance.

What type of memory card does it take
The Meidase P60 camera takes standard size SDXC card. We recommend SanDisk or Samsung cards.
