The Ltl Acorn 5210A is a wildlife trail camera, it offers long running time, 1080P HD video resolution with audio recording & 12MP photos (interpolated from 5MP). Perfect for capturing video or photos of wildlife in your garden, woodland or anywhere you need to deploy a motion activated camera. Equally usual for security surveillance applications!
Often known as a game camera, scouting camera, hunting camera or wildlife camera trap – this device is also used extensively for security video surveillance in remote areas where connection to mains power is not possible.
Thanks to the built in infrared (night vision), it can capture video footage & photos in complete darkness or daylight and will only do so when motion is detected as it also has built in motion sensors.
The Ltl Acorn 5210A can take photos of 12MP quality (interpolated from 5MP) or record video clips (with sound) at 1080P resolution. You can even set the camera to take a photo then a video clip if you want to, all triggered by movement/heat change within the camera view.
The 5210A has password protection, 16G max SD card storage (SD card not supplied as standard), time & date stamping, timer recording (explained in the next paragraph), password protection and even a time lapse feature that allows you to tell the camera to take a photo/video clip at set intervals regardless of whether any movement has been detected.
The built in Timers on the 5210A trail camera are ideal if you want it to only record between certain hours of the day or night. For instance, you may want it to record in your back garden only at night time, so you can set it to trigger only between 8pm in the evening and 6am the next morning.
The amazing thing is that this feature packed trail camera comes in a palm size casing of just 14cm x 8cm x 6cm!
The Ltl Acorn cameras are very easy to use, all set up is done via the built in LCD screen and the menu system – no software is required to use the non cellular Ltl Acorn cameras.
The camera holds a maximum of 8 AA batteries, but can run off just 4. As you would imagine, the more batteries you fit the longer the running time.
Batteries are not included but battery choice is vital for the efficiency of your camera, do not use Duracell and do not choose any batteries with a capacity lower than 2500mA. We recommend Vapex Instant 2500mA Low Self Discharge Rechargeable AAs which you can purchase directly from us, they work very well with the Ltl Acorn cameras and are excellent value for money.
Infrared (Night Vision) Frequency Options:
The Ltl Acorn 5210A can be purchased with either the standard (850nm) or the covert (940nm) infrared. The 850nm is about 30% more powerful but the leds give off a feint red glow when in operation, the 940nm leds are not as strong but not not glow at all and so are more suitable for covert surveillance applications.
Since February 2018, all Ltl Acorn cameras have the infrared brightness adjustment feature. The user can then choose between 3 different night vision strengths to suit their surveillance location. This feature helps to avoid white out issues when filming animals or human subjects that are close to the camera.
The Ltl Acorn wildlife cameras require an SD card to operate, without one inserted the camera will switch itself off immediately after power up. The 5210A can hold a 16G SD card maximum. Always use SDHC and class 10 cards.

Infrared Brightness Adjustment:
Since January 2018, the Ltl Acorn trail cameras now feature infrared brightness adjustment, this helps if you are trying to record video or take photos of subjects that are close to the camera and allows the user to adjust the night vision power in accordance with their own application – so “white out” problems in dark conditions can be eradicated.
Low Power Consumption (in standby mode):
Another new feature added to the Ltl Acorn cameras in early 2018 is the much reduced standby power consumption, this means that your batteries should last a lot longer than previously and puts the Ltl Acorn cameras another step ahead of much of the wildlife camera competition out there!
Other Information & General Maintenance:
Do not leave discharged batteries inside your Ltl Acorn camera for any prolonged length of time. The batteries will leak and this acid will corrode the circuit board. Battery leakage is very easy to spot and is not covered under the manufacturer warranty.
Cleaning the on/test/off switch on your trail camera is excellent ongoing maintenance and it’s a very simple procedure, no need to take the camera apart or anything like that. Click here for how to clean your Ltl Acorn camera switch.
