Browning BTC 2 Review
This offering from Browning is powered by 8 AA batteries. Some of the features are very similar to that of the Moultrie 880 or 990. The batteries go in the same way and some of the setup is very similar too. This camera is very user friendly and the initial start up does not even need the guide, if you have a basic familiarity with electronic devices. It also comes with Buck Watch Time-lapse software to assist with viewing of time lapse images. It boasts a 65 foot flash range and the multi shot will capture 4 photos in 2 seconds. Overall, this is a great camera for a modest price tag.

The coolest feature of Browning trail cameras is the Buck Watch Time-lapse viewer, in my opinion. It is a great tool to help manage the wildlife on your property. You are able to view an entire day’s worth of video in just a couple of minutes. You can save and share single images or easily export video clips. This trailcam has very good battery life. Each picture can be stamped with the time, date, temperature and moon phase. The HD video with sound is of exceptional quality. It is clear and crisp, highly recommended camera if video is high on your list of needs!
See what a couple of owners had to say:
This is our first game camera, and I’m glad we chose this one. This camera takes incredibly clear pictures during the day and great ones at night. The instructions for use are very good; too many manuals for electronics are impossible to follow. It took only a few minutes to set up. I liked the flexibility for different modes, and the ability to set the amount of time between shots. Note: I set mine up initially for 1 minute, thinking I would have a gazilion pictures of leaves blowing. However, the camera seemed to differentiate between the motion of leaves and animals because there were only a couple where I could not spot what triggered the camera…
As I live in an area with an abundance of wildlife, I decided to go ahead and get a trail camera to see what exactly is going on in my woods. So far, I have been impressed with the quality of the photos and the ease of this camera’s operation. The claim of a 65+ foot flash range holds up with the night photos I have viewed as well…
The Browning BTC is an excellent, versatile trail camera that stands up well compared to other cameras in it’s price range. I would even say it beats others in it’s range and holds up with some that are more expensive! The video is among some of the best that I have ever seen and it is loaded with features for the money and very user friendly. If you are new to the world of trail cameras, this would be a great way to dip your feet in. If you are experienced with trail cameras, I believe this one will not leave you disappointed!
