Browning 2018 Dark Ops Pro XD

The Browning Dark Ops Pro XD is the absolute top of the Browning range! Just like the Browning Strike Force Pro XD, this camera distinguishes itself from the rest because of the double lens, each optimized for day and night images. This results in stunning imaging! It also makes the trail camera truly silent, as there is no longer a need for a mechanical filter that slides in front of the lens when the infrared flash is on. Unlike the Browning Strike Force Pro XD, the Browning Dark Ops Pro XD is equipped with an invisible infrared flash. Additional specifications of the Browning Dark Ops Pro XD are:

  • Detection range of 28 meters (adjustable)
  • Flash range of 24 meters (adjustable)
  • Maximum photo resolution of 24MP (interpolated)
  • 1080p Full HD video resolution
  • Dynamic video function
  • Time-lapse
  • Multilingual user interface
  • Capture timer, with which you can select a custom time frame to capture events

Browning 2018 Dark Ops Pro XD | Appearance

The Browning Dark Ops Pro XD has a housing with a camouflage print with an integrated bracket on the back, which makes it easy to aim the trail camera when positioning it. The cameratrap has a cover on the lower half of the front where the settings need to be entered. The 1.5-inch internal color viewer makes it possible to see live the view of the cameratrap and to review captured images or videos directly in the field, which makes the set-up of the cameratrap a lot easier. The AA batteries go into a special battery compartment, which is pushed into the bottom of the cameratrap. When using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, the camera can last an astounding 11 months!.

Browning 2018 Dark Ops Pro XD | 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.
