Image Quality

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is equipped with 12MP front-facing camera that can click high-resolution pictures for its user. Trigger speed of the camera is less than 1 second which is approximate in this category of cameras.

There two options to choose from in terms of image setting 1) 4000x3000px (High) and 2)1500x 1200(low resolution). This helps you choose whether you want quality pictures or quantity. You can also select from single shot mode or burst shot mode.

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is fitted with 12 long range LED flashlights that has up to 50 feet flash range. However, it is to be noted that the night tie pictures can be grainy if the animal is beyond 30 feet. If the game is within 30 feet, you can expect a clear and crisp night time picture.

Video Quality

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera has not worked much on the video quality of the camera. The camera gives you 480p resolution clarity which is equal to the video quality you watch on your regular computer screen.

The video quality is not HD but it sure saves a lot of space on SD card which is something the user can consider while buying the camera. While recording the video the camera does not record audio simultaneously which gives you a mute clip. The 80p may be standard, but due to the low resolution of the front camera, the video may come out grainy and blur.

Storage and Battery

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is compatible with maximum 32GB SD card and minimum 4GB SD Card. Space should be enough for the users due to the feature of Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera of adjusting image quality and low-resolution video storage setting. If ever you find low space on your SD card, you can switch to low-resolution settings and click a lot more pictures.

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera must be juiced up with 8 AA batteries to perform well. The camera also has an external power supply option which can reduce your cost on batteries drastically. Also, the trail camera has power saving mode that will consume less energy and perform with low power motion detection to extend battery life.

Warranty

Moultrie has been generous with its Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera to offer a two-year warranty. Not all Moultrie cams get a two-year warranty. This shows confidence in the product and its metal. The camera can bear harsh weather conditions and is waterproof.  The Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is durable and functional and performs well under various circumstances but knowing that you are backed by 2 years warranty is a good feeling to know you are covered if anything happens.

Wireless Capability

Wireless connectivity feature of Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is one of its key features. The power to connect with the wild from anywhere is very appealing. Now you can access the game camera sitting inside your cabin in front of the television as well. The camera gets connected to your smartphone or your computer via messaging and emails respectively.

However, there is a catch to it. You will need to purchase MV1 from Moultrie in order to use this feature. I am sure the purchase is no big issue for a tech-savvy hunter who loves to have ease of access to his/her camera.

Tips

There are certain things to keep in mind if you wish to get the most out of the Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera. Keep in mind that if you wish to capture images during night time, the animal should be in a range of 30 feet to get the best quality image. With this distance, the photo quality is less grainy.

The camera is very good when used during the daytime. Hence, it is recommended to use the camera where it is required during daytime the most to get the best performance.

Summary

Moultrie A-20 Mini Game Camera is a very nice camera with great features and promise for the user. It is recommended for beginner users. The features like external power supply and wireless connectivity are really advanced. However, wireless integration needs additional hardware to work.

The users who wish to use the camera during daytime can jump to buy this trail camera. However, for night time use, this camera is not highly recommended if the range of operation is more than 30 feet. Do consider your needs before making a purchase.

Moultrie’s 2-year warranty does make the whole deal juicy and covers the user for a longer period of time. But keep in mind that the camera does not come with a lock. However, there is a hardware which you can use to attach the lock to. So it is better to buy a lock along with the camera than losing the camera to a mischievous neighborhood or unwanted intruders.
