The Hunten GSC22-T70IR Trail Camera provides the dual benefits of taking quality 7.0 megapixel pictures by day and 5.0 megapixel infrared images at night. The night-time range of the camera is very impressive and the Passive Infrared Sensor that the camera has been equipped with means that, thanks to the no glow flash detects heat and movement in a 60 foot range. The daytime range is also very impressive and has shown the capability of picking up on small movements in lightning quick time.
The camera features 56 LEDs that provides no glow flash means that the night time images are capable of being taken without alerting any animal that moves within range.
The camera is powered by 4 C-cell batteries and it will accept rechargeable batteries. Using the internal battery option will give you limited life before requiring them to be recharged. The longer battery life can be expected to come when using external battery packs.
The camera features 56 LEDs that provides no glow flash means that the night time images are capable of being taken without alerting any animal that moves within range. Recovery time for the camera is a little on the slow side, recorded at 5 seconds during the day and up to 15 seconds when shooting at night.
It is also possible to manually set delay times between photos of 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute or 2 minutes. When setting the camera to the specified delay you will find that the camera will properly recover to take the next shot no matter whether you’re shooting at day or night.
This is the stealth version of the bargain priced trail cameras in the Hunten Outdoors range. The infrared LEDs allow you to take pictures at night without being detected by the animals. Reports have shown that the quality of the pictures are not always high with a significant level of fuzziness experienced in the pictures.
The range capabilities of the camera repeatedly outperform what has been stated by the manufacturers. Although the daytime range is 60 feet and the night time range is 45 feet, you should expect to find pictures taken of animals roaming outside of this.
The full color TFT LCD navigation menu makes setting up the camera a very simple task with easy to follow instructions provided. This screen allows all images to be viewed directly on the camera screen
The unit will accept an 8 GB SD Disk although the SD disk is not supplied with the trail camera and will have to be bought separately.
Securing the Camera
Security for the camera is provided by the inclusion of a cable lock hole that will accept a Python cable. You can also mount the camera by using the supplied adjustable mounting strap.
While the camera can be operated by using 4 C-cell batteries it also features solar panel port that supports the use of external battery sources. The camera is compatible with 6V solar panels only. Setting up the camera with the solar pack can require some careful planning and a clear view of the sky. However, when you use the rechargeable batteries in conjunction with the solar charger you can be confident that it will not be necessary to replace the batteries for many thousands of shots.

The GSC22-T70IR was their first blackflash the new one they have this year seems to be doing really well. My impression of it is that Hunten was really close to putting out a super cam, but they failed to fine tune the defects. The sensor is strong it will catch a field mouse at 15 foot. a woodpecker at 45 foot. If any thing comes close to the cam it will take a picture. The smart sensor seems to work in the high heat we have had this summer. It has a 1 sec trigger. Motion blur is not much of a problem. The cam seemed to me to have the flash aimed down where it was hard to get the range the cam is capable of. That is probably how they get away from producing IR burn. On mine when I mounted it high it missed a lot. Very hard for me to aim it. It was capable of very good long range pictures, I will not have a replacement for this. The clunk when the cam changed from daylight to dark was excessive. The IR stayed on way to long, I was not impressed with the video. The thing that drove me crazy was that the first pictures at dark were always black and if I did not program the burst to other it would change to what it wanted. I will replace mine with a Little Acorn 5210-a.
