National Geographic photographer Michael Nichols takes images of rarely seen wildlife behavior with specialized remote-camera systems. Our simplified all-weather cameras capture multiple images of backyard wildlife, either triggered by heat and movement or programmed for time-lapse captures. Equipped with a 50-degree wide-angle lens, a 50-foot infrared emitter (which doesn’t startle animals like a flash and produces “night vision” images), and test mode. Feature 24-hour operation, burst mode for multiple exposures, adjustable time-out settings between activations, HD video capability, and time/date/moon phase stamps on each image. SD card slot accepts up to a 32-GB card (not included) for thousands of images.
5" H x 4" W x 2.25" D. Eight AA batteries, not included. Includes mounting strap.

Comments about 8.0-megapixel Infrared Motion-detection HD Video Camera:
Instruction manual doesn't define all terms, or at least not in a rational order. Unit isn't recognized by my Windows 7 computer as attached, even with new batteries. No drivers listed for this product at mfg's website, although many other drivers are available. Under my devices and printers, a device appears, but without mfg or other info that would clearly identify it, so not sure whether I am seeing this device or some previously installed but forgotten one. I cannot open using right click.
This is very disappointing and I will only give MFG the 48 hours their website requires for them to respond before returning to Nat Geo. It is exceedingly irritating that the mfg doesn't bother to have drivers for this product on their website.
Nat Geo should find a better vendor for this kind of product as this one is not committed to providing clear instructions or on-line support.
This is particularly irritating as we had planned for months for our Christmas gift to ourselves to be a part of the joy of our grandson's holiday visit. We'll continue to rely on scat and track identification and forego the pretense of photos.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
