Leupold RCX-2 Camera Kit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on September 24, 2012
The cameras have been out for almost 3 months and take about 15 pictures each day/night. Lithium batteries are stil at 100%. The controller is easy to use for programing and down loading pictures is much better than opening a camera up to swap out cards, which I've done with other cameras. Aiming the camera with the on screen view is nice and is critical to get the motion sensor aligned correctly. Leupold was very helpful with any questions that came up.
Pros: Camera works great with the right batteries.
Cons: Must use lithium batteries! Glare on controller screen....
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold RCX-2

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on January 3, 2012
The Leupold RCX-2 has preformed very well for the short time I have had it. I am very glad I purchased the kit, the extras were worth the money. Night photos are excellent quality even with a 1/25 - 1/40 sec shutter speed at f2.8. I do get some blurred motion but for the most part this is not the norm. Daylight photos are 1/100 - 1/125 sec at 2.8 and are exceptionally clear and crisp. With the camera set on a low resolution setting I am still getting an image file size over 1MB, by increasing the resolution from a 3 setting to a 5 setting doubled my file size to over 2MB. Images from the Leupold RCX-2 are equally as good as a low end DSLR camera that cost three times as much.
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: Cinch strap design could be better, it is easy to drop the camera while attaching it to a tree...

Excellent Camera

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on December 16, 2011
As an avid trail camera user (multiple brands) I recommend this camera. Easy to use, excellent photos even the IR ones which are sharp and clear. Photo downloads to controller are quick. Only issue is attachment strap which is not easy to get snug on tree - minor issue. Controller display is bright and clear. Menus are easy to navigate.
Pros: Photo quality, ease of download, functionality
Cons: Attachment strap...

Great little trail camera!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AL Written on August 7, 2011
This trail camera is terrifically easy to set up. It manages to have a good number of customizable options without requiring layers and layers of menus to dig through. Photo image quality is quite nice for a trail camera. The LED's provide great illumination for night photos.

The hand controller uses a rechargeable battery which lasts several weeks per charge. It charges in about 30 min. through a USB to mini cable. The camera itself lasts a long time on non-rechargeable batteries though I'm not sure why they chose to go with eight (yes 8!) AA batteries rather than a larger size battery.

The camera straps easily around any tree, and it has a nice metal tripod mount in the base. The hand controller must be attached to "see" through the camera's lens for adjusting orientation; unfortunately, the cable plug slot is so close to the tripod screw that the cable cannot be attached while the camera is on a tripod. It's a minor issue. Camera images can be conveniently downloaded to the hand controller (and simultaneously deleted from the camera's memory card) without removing the camera from its location . . . unless the camera is on a tripod.

I assume the camera actually does not use a shutter . . . if it does, it is completely, amazingly quiet. Daylight photos are well exposed though a bit contrasty. Night time photos have a very pleasant look with animals outlined in the LED lights. Wish Opticsplanet would allow uploading images - I have some really cute raccoons...
