Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 12/20

Ensuring that the camera is shielded from wind interference enables operation at Medium and High Sensitivity settings. This configuration can effectively achieve a detection range of approximately 50 to 60 feet.

Speed: 7/10

The P90 Pro trigger speed is fast at only 0.2 seconds. Nonetheless, its responsiveness appears sluggish as it is affected by a disparity between the detection angle and the field of view. The camera's detection angle is 70 degrees, whereas the field of view spans 120 degrees. As a result, for the camera to trigger, subjects need to be positioned closer to the center of the frame.

Accuracy: 5/10

Our experience with all three P90 Pro units in open spaces indicated a high incidence of false triggers. Despite setting the sensitivity to its lowest level, the frequency of these false activations remained notably high. This consistent performance across all three cameras suggests a systemic issue with sensitivity calibration in even mildly windy environments.

Battery Life: 9/10


Daylight Images: 8/10

The daytime images captured by the P90 trail camera are of high quality. The color representation, though not exceptionally vibrant, is true-to-life, exhibiting appropriate levels of saturation and minimal digital noise, often referred to as ISO grain, in the photography context.

Lowlight Images: 7/10

Lowlight videos are of good quality with only slightly increased ISO grain.

Night Images: 7/10

While Meidase cameras typically excel in daylight, their nighttime performance often leaves room for improvement, and the P90 Pro is no different. Our findings suggest that the 36 "black-flash" 940nm IR LEDs struggle to fully illuminate scenes unless the subject is within close range. However, since the P90 Pro camera has a 120-degree ultra-wide lens, it is more suited for capturing close-range scenes. Consequently, it produces sharp and clear nighttime images when the animal is close to the camera.

Design: 14/20

The Meidase P90 trail camera features a camouflage design intended for discreet placement in natural environments.

The camera incorporates security features, including a Python cable lock for securing the cam to the tree and a small padlock option for securing the latch access.

Its construction prioritizes durability, ensuring the device can withstand outdoor conditions. The P90 offers a 120-degree wide-angle lens but only 70 degrees PIR sensor.

The P90 Pro includes a WiFi connection for short-range wireless image transfer and remote control via a smartphone app.

The game camera offers straightforward in-field settings adjustments through a large in-camera display. The easy-to-understand settings options provide a quick and easy-use user-friendly experience.


Verdict: 69/100

The Meidase P90 Pro Trail Camera stands out with its ultra-wide 120-degree lens and a Sony Starvis sensor capable of capturing high-quality images up to 48MP. 

Its invisible 940nm infrared LEDs enable discreet nighttime capture up to 75 feet. 

Daytime captures are respectable for their realistic color representation and minimal noise. 

At the same time, despite being less illuminative at longer distances, nighttime performance proves sufficient for close-up imaging due to the ultra-wide lens. 

Lowlight videos maintain good quality, albeit with some increase in noise.

While the camera delivers fast trigger speeds (0.2 seconds) and responsive WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity, users should be aware of a few limitations.

The narrow 70-degree detection angle creates a mismatch with the 120-degrees field of view, potentially requiring subjects to be closer to the center for reliable triggering. 

This, combined with oversensitive motion detection, can lead to frequent false triggers, especially in windy conditions. 

Video sound quality also leaves room for improvement, and the short warranty period is a consideration.

Despite these shortcomings, the Meidase P90 Pro delivers excellent daytime images and performs well in close-range nighttime scenarios thanks to its wide lens. 

Easy setup, a good battery life, and the Meidase app integration further contribute to a positive user experience.

Overall, the Meidase P90 Pro offers solid value for those seeking a high-quality, invisible flash trail camera with an ultra-wide view. 

For optimal results, strategic placement and awareness of its limitations will ensure satisfaction.
