Gear Review: Spypoint HD-12 Trail Camera Review

By: Jason Balazs

Jason Balazs takes a look at the new HD-12 Trail / Surveillance Camera from Spypoint. The HD-12 features a 12 megapixel resolution and has the most advanced technology among Spypoint models. It is equipped with 46 black infrared LEDs, invisible to the naked eye. It supports video recording in high definition (720p) and captures ambient sound automatically when recording movie clips. The HD-12 allows you to view photos and listen videos directly on the spot using the 3.0″ viewing screen and built-in speaker. The HD-12 camera can be remotely triggered by a WRL-B device, included with the camera.

The HD-12 camera comes with Spypoint WRL-B motion detector , which allows remote triggering of the camera. You can increase the surveillance zone by positioning the WRL-B device further away from your camera, while continuing to use the built-in motion sensor of the HD-12.
