What is meant by hybrid?
Trailcameras that are equipped with a so-called hybrid functionality are able to take photos and videos simultaneously. This works as follows: when the camera trap is triggered by a moving heat source, first one or more photos are taken (depending on the settings and the possibilities of the respective game camera), followed by a video. In itself, this is a very nice functionality, but do realise that it always takes time for the camera to switch between photo and video mode. This time between photo and video differs depending on the speed of the camera, but the result can be that the animal is already out of the picture as soon as the video mode starts. Please bear this in mind when using this feature, so that you do not unnecessarily waste battery and storage capacity. This feature is useful when you want to obtain both still images and video from the same snapshot. It is also useful for wireless camera models, as videos cannot always be transmitted properly due to their size. With a forwarded photo, you can stay well informed of what is happening in front of the trailcamera while you can watch the videos later on the memory card.
