Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition
The Seissiger Special Cam LTE - Supersim Edition is a popular 4G wireless wildlife camera. The advantage of this model is that it comes as a complete set, with a prepaid SUPERSIM sim card (which can be used throughout Europe), a 16GB memory card, a set of alkaline batteries, and a handy metal tree screw for attaching the camera to a tree or post. Furthermore, this camera has a sufficiently fast response and recovery time, so the captured images are transmitted within 20-30 seconds to a special APP on your phone or tablet. The images are also accessible via a special website. The wireless functionality makes this camera ideal for observation of remote places (e.g. bird's nest) and for theft prevention (e.g. holiday home). Finally, it is possible to send a command to the wildlife camera via the APP or website to take a picture of that moment and forward it or to remotely change the settings in the camera. Additional noteworthy specifications of the Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition are:
- Detection range of 25 metres
- Flash range of 20 metres

Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition | Exteriors
The Seissiger Special Cam LTE housing feels robust and sturdy. The camera model has a sturdy camouflaged housing and is equipped with a locking clip on the right side, in which the AA batteries (12 pieces) and settings should be entered. The 2.0 inch built-in colour viewer makes it possible to see live what the wildlife camera is observing and images can be viewed directly in the field. Because the trail camera opens like a book, it is not possible to use the built-in viewer optimally for pointing the camera correctly in the field.
Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition | Advantages
+ Fast response time (0.6s)
+ Built-in 2.0-inch colour viewer
+ Intuitive menu in English and German language
+ Invisible infrared flash
+ wireless function (4G sim card unlimited distance)
+ SD card management function
Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition | Alternatives
Would you rather be able to decide which sim card to use in your wildlife camera? Then take a look at the simlock free version of this camera, the Seissiger Special Cam LTE - Standard Edition. This is the same camera, but unlocked. Therefore, this camera can be equipped with any SIM card of your choice. The consequence is that the purchase price is considerably higher and that the Supersim platform cannot be used. Images are therefore simply sent directly to your email address. Another interesting alternative is the Wilsus Tradenda 4G WIRELESS. With this model, it is also possible to use any SIM card you want, so you are not tied to the rates and/or the app of Supersim. A big advantage of the Wilsus Tradenda 4G Wireless is that it is possible to send multiple photos of one motion tracker (with the Seissiger camera, only the first photo is sent). The advantage of this is that you often see much better where the movement (and thus the animal) is in the image, and you get more information about what is happening in front of the camera. In addition, the Wilsus Tradenda 4G Wireless is available in two lens versions; a standard lens version with a 52-degree field of view and a wide-angle version with a 100-degree field of view (the field of view of the Seissiger camera is quite narrow at 42 degrees). Finally, the Wilsus Tradenda 4G Wireless allows for more remote settings than the Seissiger Special Cam LTE.

Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition | Recommended Accessories
The Seissiger Special Cam LTE - SUPERSIM Edition is offered as a complete set. This means that a SUPERSIM prepaid SIM card is included, as well as a 16GB memory card, and a set of 12 alkaline batteries. It also comes with a nylon strap and a handy little tree screw for attaching the camera to a pole or tree. In fact, you don't need any extra accessories to get started with your wildlife camera right away. However, you might consider ordering a slightly larger memory card (max 32GB for this model), or better batteries. For this camera we recommend using the Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries (not rechargeable), or the Panasonic Eneloop or Eneloop PRO rechargeable batteries. The advantage of the lithium batteries over the rechargeable Eneloop batteries is mainly that the former are more resistant to winter temperatures and that they last longer before they are empty. The disadvantage is that they are not rechargeable. If you opt for rechargeable batteries, then consider the Everactive battery charger in case you don't have a good battery charger at home!
In addition to batteries and a memory card, there are many other accessories available for this camera. For example, there are all kinds of special camera mounting materials such as tree forks and brackets, but also accessories that ensure that the camera is placed more securely, such as a steel security enclosure or a python cable lock. You can select these accessories immediately above and place your order as a bundle, or you can view the complete list of accessories here.
