Two dedicated camera lenses, one specifically designed to provide rich daytime images and the other to provide clear night time Infrared photography without having to use a noisy mechanical Infrared cut filter. No moving parts means more reliability and totally silent operation in the field. Made in the U.S.A.!

Dynamic Video™

Save time, batteries and memory space with Dynamic Video™, exclusively on Reconyx™ UltraFire™ Cameras.

Struggling with trying to figure out what video length to set your camera at? Set it too short and the video may end just as things are getting good. Set it too long and you may end up having to sit through a video with nothing in it, just in case you might miss something. With Dynamic Video™, setting a static video length becomes a thing of the past!

Dynamic Video™ automatically pauses the video after 3 seconds of inactivity. The camera then waits for additional movement. If no further motion events occur after 27 seconds, the camera saves the video and re-arms itself. In essence, Dynamic video eliminates the “dead space” in most video sequences.

Dynamic Video™ not only saves time, it save battery power and memory space by only recording video while motion is occurring. Once the subject leaves the field of view the video stops.
