Primos Truth 46 Trail Camera Review

Posted by Kevin Eason August 21, 2012

I have been using the Primos Truth 46 Trail Camera for a little over a year now. This Camera in my opinion is one of the best trail cameras you can buy for the money. I purchased my trail cameras last year for $89.00 each which I found to be a great value. The Cameras are a little larger than most trail cameras on the market today measuring 7” x 9” x 3”deep. This does not seem to bother me, yes it makes them difficult to carry, but I can carry 4 to 5 cameras in a medium backpack with batteries, SD cards, rubber gloves, and water.


The camera comes packaged with a heavy duty hook strap to secure it to the tree. If security is a concern, there are two ways to protect you camera and SD card. You can install a small pad lock to protect your sd card, and there is a molded security cable hole through case for theft prevention. We typically use a Master Lock Python Cable Lock thru the molded security hole along with the supplied strap to attache to the tree. The camera operates on 4 D batteries which seem to last a long time. On average, we get about three months or 3000 pictures on a single set of batteries. I have had some trouble with the unit operating properly when the batteries level drops below 30%, but over all I am impressed with the battery life of the camera. Supports up to 8 gigabyte SD card but I typically use a 2 gigabyte SD Card which holds about 1600 pictures. I typically check my trail cameras once a month so 2 gigabytes is more than enough memory.


The Primos Truth 46 Trail Camera has a 1.4 second trigger speed with a recovery time of around 5 seconds. Its detection range is around 40 to 50 feet depending on temperature and lighting. It stamps photos or video with date, time, temperature, and moon phase information. Has an image resolution of 3 megapixels, which provides a good picture quality. There is some noise when the camera takes day time pictures due to the filter but I have never noticed a problem with the noise spooking animals.


My favorite part about this camera is its ease of use. It is by far one of the easiest trail camera’s I have ever used. It has a very easy to read back lit led digital display. With the push of a button you can format your SD card, change sensitivity level, set # of pictures

taken at a time and change the time and date. Once you are strapped to the tree and ready to go you just hit the run/wake button and a timer with 30 seconds starts counting down and you are ready to go. When you come back to pull your SD card on your trail camera all you have to do is push the run/wake button, and the digital display shows you the number of pictures taken.




The Primos Truth 46 Trail Camera has everything I need out of a trail camera. It is not the fastest, quietest, or it does not take the best pictures I have ever seen, but it does capture the deer so I can create my hit lists and management plans for the season. I have used a couple different trail cameras that were faster and took better pictures but also cost me a lot more money. If you are considering purchasing a good quality trail camera, that gets the job done but does not break the bank I highly recommend the Primos Truth 46 trail camera. After all, you can never have enough trail cameras.
