Bushnell Trail Sentry 119205C Review CameraWEB
The camera comes in a dark brown case that appears to me to be a natural color. The Trail Sentry is 8"tall X 6"wide X 2 ½ deep. It has a simple look but still has a clean good look to it. There are four things on the front of the camera and they are the PIR sensor lens on top and then the flash strobe and below that is the main camera lens. Below that is the movement sensor indicator (can be used for walk test). I have always covered that up with black electrical tape. The indicator will spook the heck out of a deer that is close. PIR sensor and flash is rated to 45 feet. There is a full door seal that is held tight with two plastic latches. I have had the camera since Jan. 2012 and so far no water has gotten in. The back of the camera has a belt slot and raised curved areas to match the contour of the tree. There is also a nice strap that comes with the camera.

With the door open you can see the LCD screen with its associated 5 buttons for turning on and off the camera plus programming. The SD card slot (up to 1 gig) is just to the right of that and the battery compartment is across the bottom. I have been using a SanDisk 2GB SD card in it since Jan. with no problems.

The camera takes four D cells but care must be taken when inserting to ensure that the springs do not fold over. With the design and the battery holders it is a tight fit. With the batteries in place and the power on hit the enter button 5 times and you will see the word pass come up on the LCD screen. Hit the menu button and you can toggle through the time date setup and select either 14 second video (320X240 AVI 10fps) or select one of two (3.0 MP or 5.0 MP) resolution settings for stills. Hitting the enter button will fix your selection and also move you on to the next programming mode. Security, this is one of the all time features that most people want. Password protection type of setups like you can select on this cam is fairly easy In My Opinion. I keep my password all zero's. You can choose any set of numbers from (0000 to 9999) for your password. Should you choose to use the password make sure you do it with care, and make sure you remember you remember your password. The delay between pictures is a fixed 30 seconds which I am fine with but those who setup on feeders and licks should probably use the 3.0 MP setting because of the limitation of 2 gig SD cards. The company says that the battery life should be around 30 days of average use. Before pulling the SD card make sure that you see the word “off” on the LCD or the camera is not off.
On average the trigger speed of the Bushnell Trail Sentry was just over 2 seconds. The flash range came in out past 40 feet and the pictures were also pretty good. The camera sensed out to 38ft in the mid 70's. In Jan. when the temps were in the lower 30's the camera sensed me out to 55-60ft, but that is out of the flash range.
The camera has pretty good battery life. It lasted 49 days taking 1,235 pictures. It ran between 4/11/12-5/30/12 on one set of Rayovacs.

I usually got 4 weeks of battery life when the weather was colder. I lucked out on mine only paying $20. The person i bought it from said that it some times shuts off randomly, but in the 5 1/2 months i've had it it's never done it... Smile
