Durability and build

As far as durability is concerned, it has been designed to take a few bumps and even get wet a bit. It comes with a strap that makes it easy to set up this battery pack once the Browning camera is in place.

Battery life and efficiency

Once you have it attached to the camera, it does work well. It does the job and keeps the camera running. The battery life, however, isn’t that reliable.

It means that you might want to carry around another pack of extra batteries in case you need to set the camera for a long time. However, a good thing about this Browning battery pack is that it shows the pack’s remaining life.

You won’t be surprised that you already ran out of battery in the wild and you’ve missed a couple of good photos or videos. This external game battery pack is compatible with any Browning trail camera except the Defender.

Conclusion

The Browning External Battery Pack might be a good backup battery for your camera in the wild, but keep in mind that you don’t want to use it for a very long time.

It is a good way to prevent missing footages or losing your cool while setting up the camera in the middle of the night. However, you must switch to the regular batteries in the morning because it won’t last that long.

In terms of having a camouflage exterior and blending in the environment, you can rely on the Browning External Battery pack in this aspect.

Also, though it is compatible with most Browning trail cameras, if you have the Defenders, then it simply can’t work.

Browning Strike Force BTC-5 Game Camera Review:

Today in this post we are going to review Browning Strike Force BTC-5 Trail Camera.

Browning Strike Force represents the new Sub Micro Series of Browning trail cameras. And it continues on the same path as the previous Browning models. Browning knows how to make trail cameras that are user-friendly.

Browning BTC-5 Sub-micro 10MP camera specs:

Features BTC-5 Trail Camera
Battery  6 AA batteries
Memory  32GB
Trigger speed 0.67 seconds
Recovery time Less than 2.5 seconds
Detection range50 feet
Amazon product pageCheck price

No compromises have been made what comes to the overall quality of this camera. And what’s best, compared to other similar trail camera models, the price of Strike Force is already at a fairly affordable level.

Now don’t get me wrong, this camera is not among the cheapest ones on the market, far from it. Thus if your main concern is the price you should check the reviews of cheaper models.

But if you are looking for a high quality, value-packed trail camera at $130 price range, then you should definitely read the rest of this review.

Browning BTC-5 Sub-Micro Game Camera reviewed:

Build and design

One of the primary concerns for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts is to keep their cameras discreet. Nocturnal animals tend to observe their surroundings and could get alarmed by bright objects even from afar.

The Browning BTC 5 blends well with the environment given its camouflage exterior. It means that you can set it up on a tree or in front of bushes and animals won’t even suspect that a stealth camera’s there to monitor their movement.

It can easily blend with the environment that even humans won’t notice it. 

The Browning Strike Force Trail Camera is also perfect for different types of weather. The casing is made of superior materials that can keep the camera safe from moisture and dust.

And unlike other trail cameras that tend to lag in cold or hot temperatures, Browning Strike Force BTC-5 Trail Camera can tolerate these extreme weather conditions making it a reliable option regardless of the season. 

Setting up the camera in the woods is another great feature of the BTC-5 Trail Camera. Users will have an easier time strapping the camera on a tree.

Once you’ve set things up, you won’t have to worry that it might drop or get out of focused. 

It is also small enough to fit your hands. This means that you can have an easier time hiding the camera from animals you are looking to observe from afar. 

And once you’ve taken your shots, retrieving the SD card and the battery is also easy with this camera. Users can even do it in the dark if you are already used to it.

Camera

Browning Strike Force trail camera (model number BTC-5) features 10-megapixel images and comes with powerful IR flash that has a range up to 100ft.

These features ensure that both day and night photos are quite astounding. Strike Force is also capable of recording HD video clips with sound. Prepare yourself that you will be getting plenty of beautiful images with this camera.

Daytime photos don’t get much better than this. Shortly said they are outstanding. Only if the animal is really close in front of the camera some whiteout may appear. Other than that, the night time shots are bright and clear.

Other impressive features of Strike Force include the possibility to take up to 8 multi-shot images or up to 6 rapid-fire images, programmable picture delay options, and time-lapse mode.

Detection circuit

  1. Picture trigger: 0.67 S
  2. Picture recovery: 2 minute 
  3. Video trigger: 0.67 S 
  4. Video recovery: 2 minute 
  5. Detection range: 50 feet

BTC-5 sub-micro camera also excels in detecting the movement. Trigger speed is only 0.67 seconds, and the camera recovers in less than 2.5 seconds.

Strike Force should be able to detect motion up to 50 ft and since the detection angle is wider than the camera’s field of view, you should not miss any animals (or humans) passing the lens.

Power

Browning Strike Force 5 is powered by 6 AA batteries and the manufacturer claims that it can take up to 10,000 shots on one set of batteries. Like in most modern trail cameras, photos and videos are stored on an SD memory card (max. 32GB).

It is recommended to use Lithium batteries to get the best operating time possible. In case you really want to set and forget your camera for a long period of time, you can use the external power pack.

Pros

  • Nighttime shots are excellent as well, thanks to powerful flash and Browning’s “Zero Blur” technology.
  • Strike Force BTC 5 can really detect even the fastest moving animals due to fast trigger speed and recovery time.
  • First of all Strike Force is one of the smallest trail cameras on the market.
  • Combine this to excellent camo finish and you have yourself a trail camera that is easy to conceal.
  • You can install the camera with a strap or use a tree mount and secure it with Python cable lock if you like (who wouldn’t).
  • What comes to setting up the camera, it is easy, that’s all you need to know.
  • The battery life of Browning Strike Force 5 is excellent.

Cons

  • It is really hard to find big flaws or any flaws at all from this trail camera, but here are a couple of minor ones.
  • Some customers might expect that you would get a viewing screen at this price, like in Browning Spec Ops, but Browning has decided to leave it out from this model and make the camera smaller instead.
  • Whether that is a good or bad thing is up you to decide.
  • Buttons that are used for setting up the camera are rather small and not as convenient as slide switches that are typically used in trail cameras.

Conclusion

Browning Strike Force 10 MP Camera is an excellent package. It is versatile, offers impressive features, outstanding pictures and the price is more than reasonable.

Only real competitors offering similar features at this price level are Browning’s Spec Ops and Moultrie M-880. There are minor differences between each model, but they are all quality choices.

All we can really say is that if Strike Force fits into your budget it will surely be a purchase that you won’t regret.

Browning Range Ops BTC-1 Trail Camera

Browing Range Ops review
Browing Range Ops review

Browning Range Ops BTC-1 is the third trail camera model that Browning introduced at the beginning of 2013 (you can check the reviews for other two Browning models in here).

It was clearly designed to be the cheapest option in Browning’s selection, but at the same time it did not compete directly on price with the cheapest models on the market (models such as Primos 35 or Moultrie A5).

It is obvious that Range Ops has been made with the same ambition than the other Browning models and that ambition has produced a solid mid-price trail camera.

BTC 1 trail camera is capable of providing exceptionally good 6-megapixel images and also HD video with sound. Powerful IR flashes with a nice range of 50+ ft. ensures that the nighttime picture quality is solid too.

When it comes to design and user-friendliness, Browning Range Ops is as well-executed as the other Browning trail camera models.

Case finishing allows it to blend well into woods. You can mount the camera with the nylon strap that comes included, and also add Python cable lock for improved security. ¼” -20 threaded socket allows you to use various tree mounts with the camera.

Detection circuit

Range Ops BTC 1 detects motion up to 50 ft. and like in other Browning models, the width of the detection zone is roughly the same as the field of view (55 degrees) of the camera itself.

Browning trail cameras are famous for fast trigger speed and recovery time and Range Ops is no exception.

Trigger speed is close to 0.5 seconds and in roughly two-second, the camera is ready to take a new picture. Range Ops also features multiple photo delay options, as well as multi-shot, rapid-fire and time-lapse modes.

And if you are trying to find a trail camera that also has a detection zone width of 55 degrees that is perfectly matched with the field of view, your task becomes even harder.

These exact properties will ensure that you will get very few empty shots with Range Ops.

Batteries

Changing the batteries is really simple since you don’t have to open the camera casing for that. And what comes to battery life, Range Ops BTC 1 is one of the best in its price range.

You can expect at least a couple of months lifetime on rechargeable NiMH batteries and up to six months with Lithium ones. There is also the possibility to use external 12V power source to further extend the operational time.

Browning Range Ops Features

  • 6 megapixel image resolution
  • HD video clips (1280×720) with sound
  • IR LED flash with range up to 50ft
  • Timelapse mode (Browning Buck Watch Timelapse viewer software comes with the camera)
  • Multi-Shot mode, up to 4 images
  • Rapid Fire mode, up to 4 images
  • TV out and USB ports
  • Pictures tagged with time, date, temperature, moon phase, and camera ID
  • Programmable picture delay (5 sec to 60 min)
  • Supports SD memory cards up to 32GB
  • ¼” -20 socket for tripods and tree mounts
  • Powered by 8 AA batteries
  • 12 volt external power option
  • Python cable lock compatible

Pros

  • You can find very few trail camera models on the market at this price point that can compete in trigger speed and recovery time with Browning Range Ops.
  • The pictures quality of Range Ops is simply good.
  • Daytime pictures are colorful and well balanced, and night time shots are quite good too.

Cons

  • It is hard to find big flaws in Range Ops. Well, actually it is hard to find any flaws in it.
  • One of the minor flaws is the quality of night time shots. They tend to be little grainy and thus could be better.
  • Also, the video quality could be better during night time.

Conclusion

Browning BTC 1 is an excellent trail camera choice for those who are not seeking the ultimately cheapest option on the market.

It is easy to use, well designed, solid trail camera with exceptionally fast trigger speed and recovery time.

And when you add excellent battery life into the equation you have yourself a versatile, newbie-friendly trail camera.
