Browning 2021 Spec Ops Elite HP4
The Browning Spec Ops ELITE HP4 is not only the ultimate cameratrap to capture animals, but also performs well as a security camera. Unlike the Browning Recon Force models, the Browning Spec Ops models are equipped with an invisible infrared flash and is therefore less likely to be noticed by bystanders. Furthermore, this brand new model is equipped with all sorts of nice features. For example, you can reduce the detection and flash range to 18 meters. This comes in handy when you expect an animal to come close before the camera (e.g. at a bird's nest or using a lure). Not only the detection range, but also the detection time is adjustable (0.2s-0.7s). Additional specifications of the Browning Spec Ops ELITE HP4 are:
- Detection- and flash range of 24 and 27 meters
- Maximum photo resolution of 22MP / 1080p HD video resolution
- Dynamic video and time-lapse
- Multilingual user interface and a capture timer

Browning 2021 Spec Ops ELITE HP4 | Recommended accessories
All camera traps are supplied without accessories. However, to get started with your cameratrap right away, you need at least a set of batteries and an SDHC memory card. For this model, this is a standard SDHC memory card of at least Class 10, such as the Sandisk Ultra cards. Additionally, we recommend to use the Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries (not rechargeable), or the Panasonic Eneloop and Eneloop PRO rechargeable NiMH batteries. The advantage of the lithium batteries over the rechargeable Eneloop batteries is that the former are more resistant to winter temperatures. The disadvantage however, is that they are non-rechargeable. If you choose rechargeable batteries, think of the Japcell battery charger, in case you don't have a good battery charger in your house!
In addition to batteries and a memory card, there is a variety of other accessories available for this cameramodel. There are all kinds of special mounting materials such as tree forks and supports, but also accessories that ensure that the camera is placed more securely, such as a security enclosures or a python cable lock. You can select these accessories directly above and place your order as a bundle, but you can also view the complete overview of accessories here.
