Stealth cam went all out with the STC-P12 6.0 Megapixel Digital Scouting Camera, one of the few cameras that has attracted as many business users as it has residential. The low priced camera has a lot of upside and can be sold in a pack for anyone that wants full coverage. This is a huge change up from what is usually offered in lines like these, so makes it stand out somewhat. The amazing deal that it is only gets better the more you buy, so for customers that are looking for a bulk solution to their trail camera or home security needs, this will fit the bill nicely.
Professional and to the point, the styling is neutral for both home security and trail hunting. Nothing about it won’t stand out too much although it would have been preferable if they used a darker color. From a distance it can blend in just as good as any mossy oak or camo style, and won’t be a dead giveaway to anyone not looking for it. The case is easy to open and not a pain that some of the other higher end cases can be. Opening it to insert batteries is a breeze, and the same applies for when you want to swap out the SD card.
Beginners to intermediate users will like this product more than anyone. Easy to grasp with controls that are easy to customize are the many reasons why this is recommended for those levels. Now for the advanced user, this camera is a bit under what they would expect out of their models. In fact it is woefully underpowered for an advanced user, who would be better off getting something with more up to date features. The only way this would benefit an advanced user is if they took advantage of the bulk discount with home security in mind. It’s a nice setup to consider, but few advanced users will bother with it when better options are available.
You can question a lot of things about this cameras build, but the one thing that can’t be questioned is the durability of the case. Using a digital 3-d camo housing with external display, it stays surprisingly secure even for the price. The casing on this camera even beats out a lot that are double the price. Since the camera is used just as much indoors as out, the LCD being as good as it is turns out to be a huge advantage. The external display won’t suffer from nicks or generally bad design flaws, and will remain a useful part of the package for years.
The same slick housing might not be the best camoflouge for trail hunting, although it won’t be a dead giveaway. Megapixels are locked at 6 with no variables, and video recording maxes out at 15 seconds. With no high definition options, both the photos and videos will looked washed out on a high definition television if you try to display them. Low battery indicator is handy but does not function right when used with cheap batteries. For buyers that are planning on getting a lot of these cameras, the cheaper option would be to use those same generic batteries that cause problems.
Nothing is included beyond the basic manual and instructions in the box. But in an interesting twist, it is compatible with Python cables in case you want to secure it to a fixed location. This is great news on the accessory front, and surprising since they don’t advertise its compatibility. Buying and using a Python cable with the camera is not an expensive ordeal at all, and will appeal to a wide range of people that didn’t purchase cameras with security codes built into them. Other than that there really isn’t anything to scream about on the accessory level when it comes to the Stealth Cam.
The value with this camera is going to come by buying it in bulk. At the current price, it doesn’t make any sense to choose one of these cameras over any other single camera on the market in the same price range. But when purchasing them as a group, they gain a different kind of value that can’t be matched. Try to make use of it in a business sense and you will get a huge deal out of it. And for residential users, conformity with the cameras is a must for home security. The value once again is high, but only when purchasing multiple units.
The same thing applies with the appeal as it does with the value. Out of the box, the cameras already have dated specs if they are not used in a group and as a primary trail camera or security camera. They are far too weak to work on their own, so as a collective the appeal is greater. Having camera’s with similar specs helps in situations where one of them goes down and you need to do a replacement. Expect for these to last over a decade with heavy use, no matter how you use them. They will make up for their lack of power and features over time with the upfront discount.
There really is no comparison for the Stealth Cam STC-P12 6.0 Megapixel Digital Scouting Camera. While some companies offer a similar discount for buying in groups, their price cut isn’t as steep nor are the cameras nearly as dependable. This is a good set to purchase for home security, business and trail hunting. It will not falter over the years and the components will hold up well, while the cameras work in tandem almost effortlessly. The only way to get this type of unity would be to buy several low priced cameras. The end result would be the same price, but not the same performance.
Bulk deals like this don’t come around often, and when they do, they are not from a good company. While the cameras may not be worth their salt to purchase individually, as a group it is an unbeatable deal. You could set up point A to point Z with this package, and that is what it really was created for.
A one of a kind deal that will stand the test of time, this is another win for Stealth Cam and their line of products. Many businesses are using the cameras in their security, and that number will keep going. This is currently the best bulk package of security cameras that you can purchase.
