Wanting a camera trap which produces the best quality images is a common request but it can often be difficult to choose a camera based solely on image quality, as the way they take pictures changes as technology develops.
Currently, many of them use image interpolation, which is the process of turning a 3 megapixel (MP) image into a 20MP photo. To do this, the camera processes the original image by adding similar coloured pixels around an original pixel to boost the resolution/size of the image. On some cameras, this works really well but others can have problems with it, with images looking grainy and distorted.
We’ve narrowed down the options for you, selecting only the cameras we know are capable of producing great images.
