Intro

We have received the Stealth Cam GMAX 32 No-Glow camera as a replacement for GMAX 45 that would keep taking thousands of false-trigger pictures regardless of settings. Unfortunately, similar issues start happening right away with this model too. When in picture mode, the GMAX 32 would function somewhat OK, but when we switched the camera to the video mode, the camera would take over 800 blank night videos within a few hours and drain the batteries.

Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 12/20

The detection range we have experienced is about 60 feet.

Speed: 8/10

The trigger speed is good, but slightly slower than the listed 0.4 seconds.

Accuracy: 3/10

The camera is susceptible to wind and elements, and more than 70% of all pictures are false triggers. In addition, the video mode had only 5% accuracy.

Battery Life: 2/10

We ran the camera in picture mode for the first two weeks, taking 1406 pictures. Then we switched to video mode, and it worked OK for about a week. Then, the camera misfunctioned and recorded over 800 blank videos within a few hours, and the batteries died.

Daylight Images: 6/10

Even the daylight images are out of focus and somewhat darker than images from other cameras.

Lowlight Images: 4/10

The lowlight images are also very grainy and out of focus.

Night Images: 3/10

The camera shutter is very slow, and unfortunately, the no-glow flash does now provide enough lighting. As a result, most night images are totally out-of-focus, and the pictures of moving animals are blurry.

Design: 12/20

While the original box has the memory card listed at a typical 512GB, the camera will only accept 32GB memory cards. This is a significant issue if you wish to take high-definition videos without changing the memory card every few days. The camera also shows errors and would not accept 90% of our cards that we regularly use without problems with other cameras.

Verdict: 50/100

On paper, the Stealth Cam GMAX 32 No Glow camera has some of the most desirable features, especially the nine picture burst with the option to set the delay between pictures. But unfortunately, the camera would take hundreds of blank night videos and quickly drain the batteries within a few hours, making the camera unusable for video mode. The daylight images are disappointing, and the night images are almost unusable. The memory card limitations are also a major deal-breaker. While Stealth Cam models are often available at deep discounts, we believe there are much better options on the market, especially at the $140.00 MSRP price tag.
