The Hunten GSC35-20S Trail Camera is a strobe trail camera featuring a powerful Xenon flash tube. The camera is capable of taking pictures in 2MP resolution. It features an easy to read LED display screen, battery life that is particularly long and the white flash of the Xenon light.
It is acknowledged that the idea of strobe flash technology is considered old and has been replaced by infrared flash technology. The reason for using this type of camera is as a low-cost alternative that will give you some high quality results.
The camera is equipped with a Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) that has the capability to detect heat and movement in a 60 foot 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 trigger speed of the strobe camera is reported to be 1 second although I have had no evidence to confirm whether this is true.
The purpose of using a camera that has a white strobe flash is for taking full color photos no matter what time of the day or night it is. For those who aren’t concerned with the possibility that the flash will startle your targets you can take great full color pictures around the clock.
The LCD navigation menu makes setting up the camera a very simple task with easy to follow instructions provided.
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.

I’ve had multiple brands of trail cams. This cam is one of the best I’ve ever owned. Works every time in any weather. Owned it for 3 years. Pics are good quality. Easy to use. Menu is a cinch. Size is great. Strap isn’t fantastic, but works for me. Lightweight. I wish I could find them in more stores.

Kinda disappointed in my new Hunten white flash cam. I had high hopes for this cam as a great white flash cam.
I realize I only paid $59 and it’s a 2.0 MP. I’m especially disappointed in the nighttime pictures. It has a humongous flash but the pictures are extremely dark for the size of the flash. My Cudde Capture has a flash one half the size of the Hunten’s and it takes MUCH MUCH better night pictures.

Tried two different sets new batteries (even tested batteries). Won’t power on. Unit and package looked used from amazon, not sure why. Also unit was manufactured over 3 years ago according to label.
I searched on web and not powering on is a common ailment on these. Now I know. I have a better trail camera already, but was looking for something less expensive in case it got stolen to use further in the woods.
