TCP Rating: 56/100
– This is a no glow trailcam that takes 1.7 seconds to trigger a photo and 12 seconds to take the next picture. Compared to the competition, this is very slow. We do not recommend this camera. – TCP Staff
Stealth Cam PX36NG Review
Model # STC-PX36NG | PX36NG Owner’s Manual
Trailcampro Comprehensive Score: What’s this?
Quality of Design: 72/100
Image Quality: 59/100
Battery Life: 60/100
- Nice case design
- Poor detection speed
- Poor picture quality
- Poor video quality
This review is currently in progress. We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
Quality of Design: 72/100
Dimensions: 5.25″ x 3.5″ x 2.75″ | Battery Type: 8 AA Batteries | External Battery Jack: 12 Volt
The case design feels really sturdy. The outer plastic is thick, hard and durable. The top latch is larger than the bottom, which makes it easier to manipulate. There is a built-in python cable lock bracket on the back and a 1/4″ x 20 threaded insert on the bottom of the camera for a tripod mount.
We really like the battery case design. When the camera opens, There is a detachable cover for the battery compartment. Batteries are easy to load and unload. The inside cover is a nice, practical addition to this camera.
Programming is not user-friendly. There is a switch that selects from QSet1 (Quickset 1), QSet2, QSet3, Custom or Test. Without using the manual, you won’t know what any of the Quicksets are. The custom setting, this is the setting we use, can toggle through to change or save settings. The problem is the writing on the tiny setting screen reads like a digital clock. Imagine the clock on your nightstand trying to spell “Time,” “Mode,” “Burst,” “Delete SD,” or any other option. We are not a fan of the setup.
Durability is unknown, we will update this review if any new information comes in.
Detection Circuit: 32/100
Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 1.77 s. / 12.9 s. | Video Trigger & Recovery Speed: 2.68 s. / 10.2 s. | Detection Range: 60 ft.
Detection speed is very slow. There is no excuse for a 1.7-second trigger and 12.9-second recovery.
Detection range is 60 ft. This is an average detection range.
Picture Quality: 59/100
Photo resolution: 8 mpxl | Flash Type: No Glow Infrared
Pictures are very pixelated and the clarity is poor. Night pictures lack flash range, are grainy, and blurry.
Video quality mimics the pictures – these are well below average videos.
Battery Life: 60/100
Resting Power (on): 1.78 mW | Daytime Power Consumption: 5.48 Ws | Nighttime Power Consumption: 8.54 Ws
Day and night consumption is middle of the road. This camera would benefit from being more efficient.
If this camera were to take 35-day pictures and 35-night pictures every 24 hour period, this camera would last 5.6 months in the field on a set of lithium Batteries.
Stealth PX36NG Conclusion: 56/100
The PX36NG needs a lot of work before it gets our Recommendation.
