The Ltl Acorn 6210MG wildlife camera is part of the popular 6210 series but with the cellular module fitted which allows the sending of pictures to a mobile phone or email address when triggered. It’s much more cost effective to set the camera to send the images to your email address (rather than via SMS to your mobile phone) and you can still pick up your email on your phone anyway. For this set up we recommend using a 1pMobile SIM card and a Gmail email address, we provide step by step set up instructions if your using this combination of SIM card and email address too.
Having the captured images sent to your email address can be very useful if you need to know quickly that something could be taking place in your subject area.
Our cellular or MG models of the Ltl Acorn range (the ones that send pics to your phone or email) come with pre & post sales support from Ron Bury of www.ronburyswildlife.com – this website offers a wealth of information & knowledge with regards to the Ltl Acorn range of trail cameras.
Batteries are not included but battery choice is vital for the performance of your camera, do not use Duracell and do not choose any batteries with a capacity lower than 2500mA. We recommend Panasonic Eneloop Pro 2500mA Rechargeable AAs for use with the Ltl Acorn Cellular Cameras.
As with any trail camera the Ltl Acorn 6210MG will record all images and video recorded on board to an SD card (not supplied). An SD card is required to operate the trail camera and the 6210MG can accept up to 32G capacity cards.
The 6210MG is weatherproof for outside use, has built in infrared for night vision images & video, can take up to 12 AA batteries and has a built in LCD screen for camera set up and immediate playback of recorded files if needed. You can also playback by simply removing the SD card and inserting into a laptop or desktop computer.
