This is the cellular version of the Ltl Acorn 6310 series wildlife trail camera, it uses the 2G network to send images to your email address or mobile phone if you want it to.
It offers 1080P video recording, 12MP photos (interpolated from 5MP), has the larger 44 led infrared array for greater night vision range, it also records audio.
The Ltl Acorn cellular cameras can also be set up to send images direct to your mobile phone or email address when triggered – using the 2G mobile phone network. You will require a SIM card if you wish to use this feature, we recommend and use the 1pMobile PAYG SIMs as they are value for money and their website is very easy to use. We also recommend using a Gmail email address to receive your images as this is much more cost efficient than sending them to your mobile phone via SMS – you can still access the images via your mobile phone just by going to your email account anyway.
Trail Camera Uses
Not only great for wildlife monitoring, these trail cameras are often used for security surveillance of anti social or criminal activities in locations where running a mains power cable is problematic.
With the built in infrared for night vision and the IP66 rated weatherproof casing, the 6310MG or 6310WMG (wide angle lens version) trail camera can be used outside for recording video or taking photos day or night whenever motion/heat change is detected in the camera view.
Timers & Timelapse
You can use the built in Timers to set the camera to only trigger/record between certain times of day or use the Timelapse feature to tell the camera to record every X amount of minutes. Alternatively the default mode is for the camera to just record whenever it senses a new heat signature (movement of a creature or human) within the camera view and this is how the majority of trail camera users would set the trail camera.
SD Card & Batteries
The 6310 series can take up to 32G SD cards (not supplied) and a maximum of 12 AA batteries (requires 4 minimum, not supplied). Ensure you use genuine branded SDHC, Class 10 cards – please do not buy cheap fakes on Amazon or eBay as they will cause problems for the camera.
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 currently recommend Panasonic Eneloop Pro 2500mA Rechargeable AAs for use with all of the Ltl Acorn Cellular Cameras.
Covert Infrared for Night Vision Recording
The 6310MG uses the covert “no glow” 940nm infrared. So ideal for human surveillance and when you want to make the camera as difficult as possible to be seen in dark conditions.
The Infrared Brightness Adjustment feature allows the user to adjust the power of the infrared between 3 different levels. So if you find that your images are being “whited out” as the infrared is too powerful then you can reduce the strength until you find the right level for your subject area.
With built in recording, on board infrared, motion/heat sensors and AA battery slots the Ltl Acorn cameras require no cables at all and so are ideal for locations without access to mains power.
Standard or Wide Angle Lens
You can choose between the standard or wide angle lens version. The standard lens offers an angle of view of around 50 degrees and this doubles with the wide angle lens to about 100 degrees. Take a look at the lens comparison image for a better idea of what each lens could do for your planned trail camera location.
