Using the tripod socket: The camera is equipped with a socket at the bottom end to enable mounting on a tripod or other mounting accessories with a standard1/4-20thread.

Two optional mounting accessories, a “Bear Safe” metal camera box (model # 19653C) and Deluxe Tree Bracket (model# 119652C) are also available-pleasesee your Bushnell dealer or website for more details.

Sensing Angle and Distance Test

To test whether the Trophy Cam can effectively monitor the area you choose, this test is recommended to check the sensing angle and monitoring distance of theTrophy Cam. To perform the test:

Switch the Trophy Cam to theSETUP mode.

Make movements in front of the camera at several positions within the area where you expect the game or subjects to be. Try different distances and angles from the camera.

If the motion indicator LED light blinks, it indicates that position can be sensed. If it does not blink, that position is outside of the sensing area.

The results of your testing will help you find the best placement when mounting and aiming the Trophy Cam. The height away from the ground for placing the device should vary with the animal size appropriately. In general, 3 to 6 feet is preferred.

You can avoid potential false triggers due to temperature and motion disturbances in front of the camera by not aiming it at a heat source or nearby tree branches or brush (especially on windy days).

Switching ON the Camera

Once you switch to the ON mode, the motion indicator LED (red) will blink for about 10 seconds. This gives you time to close and lock the front cover of theTrophy Cam and then walk away. During this time, the motion indicator LED will blink red continuously. After it stops blinking, the PIR is active, and any motion that is detected by it will trigger the capture of photos or videosas programmed in the SETUP Menu. Be sure you have read the descriptions of the Capture Number, Video Length, Interval and Sensor Level parameters.

Please note, the PIR is strongly sensitive to ambient temperature. The greater the temperature difference between the environment and your subject, the farther the possible sensing distance. The average sensing distance is about 45 ft.

Before leaving the camera unattended, please check for the following:

Are the batteries or DC power supply inserted/connected with correct polarity and is the power level is sufficient?

Does the SD card have sufficient available space and is its writeprotection (lock) switch off?

Is the Power switch in the ON position? (do not leave it inSETUP).

PLAYING BACK/DELETING THE PHOTOS/VIDEOS

After you have setup, mounted and activated your Trophy Cam, you will of course be eager to return later and review the images it has captured for you. There are several different ways this can be done.

Reviewing Images on the Trophy Cam LCD (Models with Color Viewer only)

Put the power switch in SETUP mode (switch toOFF first).

Push the OK(Replay) key to enter image review mode.

Use the UP/DOWN keys to scroll through your photos or videos. The right corner of the display will indicate “JPG” for still photos, and a film icon for video files. Press the RIGHT(Shot) key to review a video.

Push MENU to delete an image. Image delete mode works as described below. To exit image review mode, press the OK key.

Reviewing Images on an External Video Monitor

A TV monitor can also be used to play back pictures (or videos) from the device. Connect a TV monitor or a viewing device (such as a digital picture frame) that has a standard composite video input (RCA jack) to the Trophy Cam ‘s “TV Out” mini jack using the supplied cable. Then:

Put the power switch in SETUP mode (switch toOFF first).

Press the OK key. The most recently captured image will be shown

21

on the video monitor. For video clips, press the SHOT (RIGHT) key to start playing, press again to stop.

Press the UP key for the previous photo or video and the DOWN key for the next one. When viewing images, the total number of all images in the SD card and the index of the displaying image are shown in the center of LCD and at the bottom of the video monitor respectively.

Press the OK key to return to live preview state (SETUP mode) when playback is finished.

Deleting Photos or Videos

Cable from “TV Out”

If you see a photo or video during playback on the LCD or video monitor that you want to delete, it can be done easily without leaving SETUP mode:

Press the MENU key. You will see the first “Delete” screen, which lets you selects the option to delete only the currently displayed photo/ video, orall photos/videos(see below).

Highlight the “Delete Current” or “Delete All” option, then press OK.

Next, select “Yes” and press OK to erase only the last displayed photo or video (if you selected “Delete Current”), or every photo and video file on the card (if you selected “Delete All”)-orselect “No” and press OK to cancel the operation without deleting any files.

NOTE: after deleting a picture or a video file, the deleted files can’t be restored! It is also possible to delete all files from the card by using the Format parameter.

Reviewing Images Directly From the SD Card

This is the most popular method of viewing images. Since unmounting the

camera and taking it to your computer isn’t very convenient, you may find it easier to just take the card out. By removing the SD card (swapping it for a new empty card if you like) and taking it to your home or campsite to view the images by using an SD card “reader” (user supplied) connected to your computer (some computers and TVs have a built in SD card slot), you can leave the camera in place ready to capture more images. Once connected, the card reader works the same way as describedbelow-pleaseread that section if you have any problem finding your files.

Reviewing Images by Connecting the Camera to a Computer

You can always unmount the entire camera from the tree and connect its USB port to a computer-itwill be recognized as a “removable disk”, without the need to install any drivers or software. When using a PC (or Mac*) to view photos (or video clips*), first connect the device to the computer with the supplied USB cable. Then use commercial software with an image browser feature, or an image browser included with the PC’s operating system to view images saved on the SD card in the folder \DCIM\100EK113. Each new image or video will be numbered incrementally in order of the time it was captured. For example, you will see file names such as “PICT0001.JPG” or “PICT0001.ASF”. Through the file format suffix you can distinguish whether the file is a still photo (with suffix .jpg) or a video (with suffix .asf).

*“.ASF” video files may require additional software for viewing on a Mac.

The Trophy Cam supports 3 kinds of file system formats, FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32. The default value is FAT16 to save photos and videos. Here are some related notes:

You don’t need to be concerned about the file system format of the Trophy Cam unless your equipment has problems reading the SD card. If this happens, please format the SD card with theTrophy Cam or in your computer first and then insert the card into yourTrophy Cam and try again.

The default file system format of the Trophy Cam is FAT16, which most computers can read. If you format an SD card for theTrophy Cam in your computer, you should choose the file system format FAT16. Normally FAT16 is recommended unless you have another image viewer that uses FAT12 or FAT32 format.

DOWNLOADING THE PHOTOS/VIDEOS

To download your photos/videos to a PC or Mac*, first make sure the Trophy Cam power switch is in theOFF position. Connect the supplied cable to the camera’s USB port, then directly to a main USB port on yourcomputer-donot use front panel/keyboard USB ports or unpowered “hubs”.

The Trophy Cam will be recognized as a standard “USB Mass Storage” device (this may take several seconds the first time you connect it). If you would rather leave your camera in the woods and just pull its SD card out, an SD card reader works the same way as described in this section once the card is inserted and the reader is connected to your computer.

With Windows XP or later, you can then simply use the options in the popup window to copy, view, or print your photos (right).

On all Windows OS, the Trophy Cam will also be listed as a “Removable Disk” if you open the “My Computer” window (on Macs, an icon will appear on your desktop). TheTrophy Cam’s photo files are named “PICT0001.JPG” etc, and are located in the “DCIM\100EK113” folder on this “Removable Disk”.

Video file names will end with “.ASF”. You may copy the photos/videos to your hard drive as you would any file-justcopy/paste or drag the file names or icons to your drive or desktop.

After the photos are copied to your hard drive, you can disconnect the Trophy Cam. (On Mac computers, drag the “disk” that appeared on your desktop when the camera was connected into your Trash to “eject” it before disconnecting.) The .jpg standard files from theTrophy Cam may be viewed and edited with any photo software you choose to use. The .asf video files may be viewed with Windows Media Player (version 7 or later) as well as other video playback programs that may have been supplied with your computer, or are available online.

* “.ASF” video files may require additional software for viewing on a Mac.

TROUBLESHOOTING / FAQ

Battery life is shorter than expected

1.Battery life will vary with operating temperature and the number of images taken over time. Typically, the Trophy Cam will be able to capture several thousand images before the batteries die.

2.Check to make sure you have used new alkaline or lithium batteries.

Bushnell recommends using 8 Energizer® Lithium AA batteries in all Trophy Cams to obtain maximum battery life.

3.Make sure that the power switch was turned to the “On” position and that the camera was not left in “Setup” mode while in the field.

4.Make sure that you are using a good quality name brand SD card in your camera. Bushnell recommends SanDisk® brand SD Cards up to 16GB. Our experience indicates that poor quality SD cards can sometimes reduce yourTrophy Cam battery life.

Camera stops taking images or won’t take images

1.Please make sure that the SD card is not full. If the card is full, the camera will stop taking images.

2.Check the batteries to make sure that they are new alkaline or lithium AA batteries. See note above about short battery life.

3.Make sure that the camera power switch is in the “On” position and not in the “Off” or “Setup” modes.

4.Make sure that you are using a good quality SD card in your camera.

Bushnell recommends SanDisk® SD Cards up to 16GB.

5.If the SD card has its write protect switch in the lock position, the camera will not take images.

6.If you have used an SD card in another device before inserting it in your Trophy Cam, you might want to try formatting the card using the “Format” parameter in Setup mode (make sure you have backed up any important files first, as formatting will erase all previous files). In some cases, other devices may change the formatting of the SD card so that it will not work properly with theTrophy Cam.

24

25

Camera won’t power up

1.Make sure that you have installed at least 4 batteries (the required minimum #) in the battery compartment, starting at the top, filling battery spaces 1-4with no “gaps”.

Bushnell recommends using 8 Energizer® Lithium AA batteries in all Trophy Cams.

2.Make sure that the batteries are installed correctly, observing proper polarity. Always place the negative (flat) end of each battery in contact with the spring side of its slot inside the camera.

3.After moving the switch from “Off” to “Setup” or “On”, make sure that the switch is correctly in position to ensure the proper mode (avoid positions “between” two modes).

4.Do not move the switch directly from “On” to “Setup”-alwaysmove the switch all the way down to “Off” first, then back up to “Setup”.

Still Photo and/or Video Quality Problems

1.Night photos or videos appear too dark

a.Check the battery indicator icon to see if battery power is full. The flash will stop operating near the end of the battery life.

b.You will get the best results when the subject is within the ideal flash range, no farther than 45’ (14m) from the camera. Subjects may appear too dark at greater distances.

c.Please note that when the Capture Number parameter is set higher than “1 Photo”, or with very short Interval settings, some images may appear darker than others due to the quick response and rapid retriggering of the camera, allowing less time for the flash to fully recharge before firing again.

2.Daytime photos or videos appear too dark

a.Make sure that the camera is not aimed at the sun or other light sources during the day, as this may cause the auto exposure to produce darker results.

3.Night photos or videos appear too bright

26

a.You will get the best results when the subject is within the ideal flash range, no closer than 10’ (3m) from the camera. Subjects may appear too light at closer distances.

4.Daytime photos or videos appear too bright

a.Make sure that the camera is not aimed at the sun or other light sources during the day.

5.Photos with streaked subject

a.In some cases with low lighting conditions and fast moving subjects, the 5MP or 8MP resolution settings may not perform as well as the 3MP setting.

b.If you have multiple images where fast moving subjects produce streaks on the photo, try the 3MP setting instead.

6.Red, green or blue color cast

a.Under certain lighting conditions, the sensor can become confused resulting in poor color images.

b.If this is seen on a consistent basis, then the sensor may need servicing. Please contact Bushnell customer service.

7.Short video clips—notrecording to the length set

a.Check to make sure that the SD card is not full.

b.Make sure that the camera has good batteries in it. Near the end of the battery life, the camera may choose to record shorter video clips to conserve power.

Date/Time Stamp not appearing on images

1. Make sure that the “Time Stamp” parameter is set to “On”.

Photos Do Not Capture Subject of Interest

1.Check the “Sensor Level” (PIR sensitivity) parameter setting.

For warm environmental conditions, set the Sensor Level to “High” and for cold weather use, set the sensor for “Low”.

2.Try to set your camera up in an area where there is not a heat source in the camera’s line of sight.

3.In some cases, setting the camera near water will make the camera take images with no subject in them. Try aiming the camera over

ground.

27

 

4.Try to avoid setting the camera up on small trees that are prone to being moved by strong winds.

5.Remove any limbs which are right in front of the camera lens.

PIR Sensor LED Flashes/Doesn’t Flash

1.When the camera is in the “Setup” mode, a special LED on the front of the camera will flash when it senses motion. This is for setup purposes only and will help the user aim the camera.

2.During use, the LED will not flash when the camera takes an image. This is to help keep the camera hidden from game.

LCD Screen Issues

1.LCD screen powers on but no text is present.

a.After moving the switch from “Off” to “Setup” or “On”, make sure that the switch is correctly in position to ensure the proper mode (avoid positions “between” two modes).

b.Do not move the switch directly from “On” to “Setup”-alwaysmove the switch all the way down to “Off” first, then back up to “Setup”.

2.LCD screen shows a faint black line after turning from “Setup” to “On”.

a.The LCD will turn off when you slide the switch to the “On” position. In some cases, this black line will appear and then fade in about 1 second. This is normal and the camera will function properly.

3.Screen comes on but then powers off

a.Make sure that you have installed the SD card correctly.

Camera won’t retain settings

1.Make sure that you have been saving the changes to any parameter settings that you made while in Setup mode, by pressing “OK” after changing the setting. If you don’t save your new setting after changing it, the camera will continue to use the original default setting for that parameter.

INTRODUCTION

À propos du Trophy Cam

Le Trophy Cam de Bushnell est un appareil photo de surveillance numérique. Il peut être déclenché par tout mouvement de gibier dans un endroit donné – repéré par un détecteur de mouvement ultra sensible à capteur infrarouge passif – puis prendre des photos de haute qualité (résolution pouvant atteindre 8 MP), ou des séquences vidéo.

Le Trophy Cam consomme très peu d’électricité (moins de 300 μA) en modestand-by(surveillance). Ceci signifie qu’il peut fournir jusqu’à six mois d’autonomie en modestand-bylorsqu’il est alimenté par huit piles alcalines AA, et jusqu’à douze mois avec des piles AA au lithium. Une fois qu’un mouvement est détecté dans la zone surveillée, l’appareil photo numérique se déclenchera automatiquement (généralement dans la seconde qui suit) pour prendre des photos ou des séquences vidéo selon la configuration établie au préalable. LeTrophy Cam est équipé de LED infrarouge intégrées qui fonctionnent comme un flash pour fournir des photos ou des vidéos (en noir et blanc) dans l’obscurité et peut prendre des photos ou des vidéos en couleur lorsqu’il y a assez de lumière du jour. LeTrophy Cam est conçu pour être utilisé à l’extérieur et résiste à l’eau et à la neige.

Applications

Le Trophy Cam peut être utilisé comme un appareil photo de détection pour la chasse ou pour compter le gibier. Il convient également à la surveillance.

PRÉSENTATION DU TROPHY CAM

Le Trophy Cam dispose des connexions suivantes afin d’être raccordé à des appareils externes : Port USB, port pour carte SD, sortie TV et alimentation externe (Fig. 1).

Un commutateur d’alimentation à trois positions sert à sélectionner les modes d’opération principaux: OFF (ARRÊT), SETUP (CONFIGURATION), et ON (MARCHE) (Fig. 2).

L’interface de contrôle à six touches sert principalement en mode CONFIGURATION (SETUP) à sélectionner les fonctions et paramètres opérationnels. Selon indiqué à la Fig. 2, ces touches sont :HAUT,BAS,GAUCHE,DROITE,OK etMENU. Quatre de ces touches peuvent également servir pour une seconde fonction (raccourci opérations en modeSETUP (CONFIGURATION) en plus de leur fonction principale : La toucheBAS peut servir à mettre l’appareil photo en mode Photo (icône appareil photo), et la toucheHAUT sert à mettre l’appareil photo en mode Vidéo (icône caméscope). La toucheDROITE sert également de bouton de déclenchement manuel (« SHOT ») de l’appareil photo et le boutonOK met l’appareil photo en mode lecture (« REPLAY »). Ces fonctions secondaires sont indiquées par des icônes ou un texteau-dessusde la touche comme le montre laFig. 2.

INSTALLATION DES PILES ET DE LA CARTE SD

Avant de pouvoir utiliser votre Trophy Cam, vous devrez d’abord installer des piles et insérer une carte SD. Même si cela ne vous prendra qu’une minute, vous devez prendre conscience de quelques remarques importantes concernant à la fois les piles et les cartes SD, donc veuillez prendre le temps delire les instructions et avertissements suivants:

Mise en place des piles

Après avoir ouvert les deux loquets sur le côté droit du Trophy Cam, vous constaterez que leTrophy Cam a huit emplacements pour les piles. En commençant en haut du compartiment à piles, les emplacements 1, 2, 3 et 4 forment un groupe, tandis que les emplacements 5,6, 7 et 8 forment un autre groupe, fournissant chacun 6 volts en parallèle. Pour obtenir une autonomie maximale, vous devrez installer un jeu complet de huit piles.

Le Trophy Cam peut également fonctionner avec seulement quatre piles installées dans le groupe supérieur (voir page précédente), en commençant par l’emplacement 1. La durée de vie des piles sera plus courte avec 4 piles, mais l’appareil fonctionnera normalement. Que vous utilisiez 4 ou 8 piles, veillez à insérer chaque pile en respectant la polarité (pole négatif ou « plat » en contact avec le long ressort de chaque emplacement de pile).

Bushnell recommande d’utiliser huit piles AA au lithium neuves (de la marque Energizer®) ou des piles AA alcalines. Les piles NiMh rechargeables peuvent également être utilisées, mais sachez qu’elles ont une durée de vie plus courte du fait de la réduction de leur efficacité après un moment et à basse température. Il est également possible d’utiliser une batterie externe au plomb-acide d’une puissance de 6 volts ou un adaptateur secteur approprié - voir ci-dessous pour de plus amples renseignements.

Utilisation d’une source de courant externe (en option, fournie par l’utilisateur)

En option, vous pouvez branchez une source de courant externe de 6V à la prise « DC in » située sous le Trophy Cam. Il est recommandé d’utiliser une source d’électricité ayant une sortie de courant supérieure à 1 000 mA. Cependant, lors d’une utilisation par temps clair, lorsque le flash n’est pas nécessaire, le Trophy Cam peut fonctionner avec beaucoup moins de courant (>400 mA). Veuillez utiliser un câble d’alimentation compatible (non fourni) pour brancher l’alimentation externe en c.c. à la prise d’alimentation du Trophy Cam, en respectant la polarité.

Remarque: La prise d’alimentation est une prise coaxiale d’alimentation en c.c. de 4,0x1,7 mm ayant une « borne » (broche interne) de polarité positive (Radio Shack P/N 274-1532ou équivalent).

Si une source d’alimentation externe est branchée et des piles installées à la fois, le Trophy Cam sera alimenté par la source d’alimentation externe. Lorsque les piles faiblissent, le voyant indicateur LED bleu de faible charge des piles s’allumera, indiquant que les piles doivent être remplacées (voir p. 6, « Vue de face »).

Insertion de la carte SD

Les Trophy Cams ont une mémoire interne de 32 Mo, qui peut contenir environ 20 photos (à une résolution de 5 MP). Ceci est pratique pour faire

36

37

des essais et pour se familiariser avec l’appareil, mais vous voudrez sans doute laisser celui-ciseul pendant plusieurs jours, par conséquent l’emploi d’une carte SD est recommandé. Insérez la carte SD avant de commencer à utiliser l’appareil (le commutateur d’alimentation de l’appareil photo étant en position OFF (ARRÊT)) avant de commencer à utiliser l’appareil. N’insérez pas ou n’enlevez pas la carte SD lorsque le commutateur d’alimentation est en position ON (MARCHE).

Le Trophy Cam utilise une carte mémoire SD (Secure Digital) standard pour sauvegarder les photos (au format .jpg) et/ou les vidéos (au format

.asf). Les cartes SD et SDHC (haute capacité) d’une capacité maximum de 16 Go sont supportées. Avant d’insérer la carte SD dans l’appareil, veuillez vous assurez que le curseur de protection

contre l’écriture situé sur la carte SD est sur « off » (NON pas en position « Lock »). Ce qui suit décrit comment insérer et enlever la carte SD:

Insérez la carte SD dans l’emplacement pour carte, l’étiquette de la carte vers le haut (voir

ci-dessus). Un « déclic » indique que la carte est installée avec succès. Si le mauvais côté de la carte est vers le haut, vous ne pourrez pas l’insérer sansforcer-iln’y a qu’une seule manière d’insérer correctement les cartes. Si la carte SD n’est pas installée correctement, l'écran LCD n'affichera pas d'icône carte SD en mode SETUP (CONFIGURATION)(un symbole de « cadenas » sera visible sur l’icône carte SD affichée après être passé au mode SETUP si la carte est verrouillée). Il est recommandé de formater la carte SD en utilisant le paramètre « Format » duTrophy Cam avant de l’utiliser pour la première fois, spécialement lorsque la carte a été utilisée dans d’autres appareils(voir la section « Formater » en page 48 pour de plus amples renseignements).

Pour retirer la carte SD, enfoncez-làtout d’abord légèrement. Vous allez alors entendre un clic qui indique qu'il est désormais possible de la retirer. N'essayez pas de la retirer sans avoir fait cette manipulation au préalable.

AVERTISSEMENT

Veillez à ce que l’alimentation de l’appareil soit sur OFF (ARRÊT) avant d’insérer ou de retirer la carte SD ou les piles.

UTILISATION DU TROPHY CAM

Une fois que vous avez préparé votre Trophy Cam en installant correctement les piles et une carte SD, vous pouvez simplement sortir, l’attacher à un arbre, l’allumer et vous en allez - et il se peut que vous obteniez des photos superbes qui correspondent exactement à ce que vous recherchez. Toutefois, nous vous recommandons de prendre le temps de lire cette notice afin de comprendre les différents réglages possibles que propose votre appareil. Vous voudrez probablement régler au moins la date et l’heure pour qu’elles soient indiquées sur vos photos, apprendre comment configurer l’appareil pour qu’il prenne des séquences vidéos au lieu de photos si vous le désirez, et lire quelques suggestions concernant sa fixation à un arbre.

LES MODES MARCHE, ARRÊT ET CONFIGURATION

Le Trophy Cam a trois modes de fonctionnement de base:

mode ARRÊT: Commutateur d’alimentation en positionOFF.

mode MARCHE: Commutateur d’alimentation en positionON (l’écran LCD est éteint).

mode CONFIGURATION: Commutateur d’alimentation en positionSETUP (l’écran LCD est allumé).

Mode ARRÊT (OFF)

Le mode ARRÊT est le mode de « sécurité » permettant toute une série d’actions, par exemple, remplacer la carte SD ou les piles, ou transporter l’appareil. Vous utiliserez également le modeARRÊT si vous connectez l’appareil à un port USB d’un ordinateur plus tard pour télécharger vos photos/vidéos. Et bien sûr, lorsque vous rangez ou n’utilisez pas l’appareil, vous le mettrez sur ARRÊT. Veuillez remarquer que même en modeARRÊT leTrophy Cam continue à consommer de l’électricité à un très bas niveau. Par conséquent, il est conseillé d’enlever les piles si vous êtes amené à ne pas utiliser l’appareil pendant une longue période.
