Stealth Cam STC-P12 6.0 MP Review
Although this camera is getting up there in age, it was very innovative when it was released and can still compete with some of the features being offered now. It can still provide valuable hunting information. It has a 50 foot flash range so you won’t miss any activity. The energy efficient design provides a nice battery life. You usually have to look at more expensive cams to find invisible flash, like the Big Game Black Widow. The price makes it an appealing option to many and is at least worth a closer look!

This is what a couple of owners have to say:
For the price it’s as expected. Photo quality is a bit less than I hoped for. Daytime photos aren’t crisp and nighttime photos are blurry at times. They get the job done though…
For the money it is fantastic, just keep in mind you get what you pay for. Great quality, reaction times are just a little slow…
The good things about this scouting camera is that it takes bursts of pictures and you can customize what you want it to do with the customized setting. The daytime pictures are decent quality. It is easy to work out and use and after a month the batteries are still fully charged. On the 16GB card it can hold over 450 pictures.
The things I really do not like about the camera are that animals can sometimes be out of the frame by the time the camera actually takes a picture, as the trigger time is pretty slow. The video setting also does not record on audio. It can have a watercolor effect at times. The video is not as good as the still photos. If you want a camera that takes great trail photos then this may not be your best choice.
Overall, I think the best thing about this trail camera is the price. It will definitely get you by if you are looking for a cheap option to take daytime photos. If you are looking for a trail cam on the lower end budget, you should also have a look at the Moultrie A5, or Simmons Whitetail…as to me they are better choices, even though they cost just a bit more.
