The Stealth Cam G42 No-Glo Trail Game Camera STC-G42NG is an extremely good, no nonsense, rugged, outdoor trail camera.  The images and video it takes are of high quality, as you would expect from a 10 mp camera. It films well by Day and also by Night thanks to the 41 black lit Infra red emitters.There is a choice of capture zones and the camera can be set-up with a variety of filming options and capture lengths. It is very easily set-up.


In our opinion, this trail camera would benefit by the addition of a larger SD storage limit. Although the current 32gb slot size is adequate, a 128gb slot size or higher would enable the camera to be left for much longer than a month.
