When it comes to striking a balance between budget and quality, things are a bit tricky with trail cameras. Many…
If you make any kind of activity or extreme outdoor sports, or even traditional, but particularly “active”, most likely have to have the camera always on hand and ready to fire with a good scene. In that case, the risk of bumping due to falls (cycling, riding, skiing, etc.) Against a wall or rocks (in mountaineering, rock climbing, hiking, etc..) Will be quite high.
A sheath for carrying the camera will be essential. This case must be tailored to the activity to be undertaken. As an example, if you are dedicated to climbing, you can not use a holster that does not have a strap to hang over the shoulder, but a simple handle to carry by hand, something completely useless.
Thus, we might say that the battery is the “Achilles heel” of digital cameras, and so in principle requires (directly or indirectly) more carefully. In this sense, we must take into account first, from prevention, the following:
Remember that batteries should not come into contact with metal surfaces or poles together, as they may download or even cause a fire. Take them isolated from each other and other surfaces, properly loaded and protected from water, sun, weather in general and of the blows.
