Victure HC300 26/100

Manufacturer: Victure

Review

The Victure HC300 trail camera is an inexpensive model with a limited detection range and below-average picture quality. The camera is too slow to freeze the image, and even daytime images are blurry unless the animal has stopped. In addition, the photo burst mode would only take three pictures, with a five-second delay. Finally, the memory card limitations are making this camera unusable for video.

Camera Ratings


Detection Range: 3/20

The detection range is extremely limited and somewhere around only 15 feet.


Speed: 1/10

Extremely slow trigger, and even most daylight pictures are out of focus and blurry.


Accuracy: 6/10

The only reason the camera scored this high for accuracy is the limited detection range.


Battery Life: 5/10

The battery life is just average but acceptable for picture mode.


Daylight Images: 3/10

Images from stationary or slowly moving objects are satisfactory. However, most pictures of moving animals are out of focus.

Lowlight Images: 3/10

The camera uses black & white mode during dawn and dusk, and the images are slightly better than night images.

Night Images: 2/10

The night images are not usable unless the animal has stopped. Sometimes, we can even tell what animal it was, as all we see is just a blurry spot.

Design: 3/20

The listed specs are not bad, but unfortunately, the Victure HC300 is one of those lemons you wished you had never owned. The burst mode would only take three pictures, and the animal is usually gone due to the slow five-second recovery mode.


Verdict: 26/100

No trail camera is perfect, but we usually can find a usable spot based on the camera's strength. In this case, the camera helped us find a busy site, but we will be replacing the Victure HC300 with a better unit as soonest we can. Understandably, very few models at this price level are good, and sometimes, even $40 is too much.
