Hello again everyone!

I've been wanting to invest in a camera for my coop and one for my run too.

I've came across many cameras that look great but they all require a mains power connection or internet connection. I can't have either of those, my coop is to far away.

My only real option...a game camera!

So, I've been looking and came across this one which is fairly cheap:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/OOOUSE-Wat...t=&hvlocphy=1006688&hvtargid=pla-798864722389

I'm just curious to know if anyone has ever used this one and is it half decent?

I'm not using it for predators, it will be used to keep track of who is laying what eggs so I can mark them accurately.

Any other recommendations are welcome!

The most I will spend is around £30 (so £60 for two).​

I don't have that camera, but the 120 degrees angle should be good for a tight space inside.
My cameras have a 42 to 46 degrees angle so are best in an open area or outside. GC

I don't have that exact camera but one very similar. They all take decent daytime pictures but not great nighttime pictures. Here is an example. Two different cameras in the same spot.

I bought one similar last year from amazon and have no complaints. Paid $79.99 for it. Thinking it was more expensive because it came with the Micro DS card. The one you've posted does not. Not sure cost of Micro DS card in the UK where you live. I noticed mine is no longer available. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HF4GY3Y/?tag=backy-20

Oh right! That's quite possible, plus our currency's go on different rates too. I think I can pick up a Micro SD card anywhere from £3-£15 ish depending on the memory and brand. So that's not too bad then. Good to hear you haven't had any issues though!

I never though about that, I honestly never looked so I'm glad you pointed that out! Yes the camera will be pretty close to the chickens inside the coop so you are right in what you say about the wider degree angle.

Ah yes I see what you mean. I think that would be ample quality for wanting my chickens inside their coop though. As long as the chicken is recognisable, it'll be good enough!
Thankyou for sharing.

I think I might go ahead and order one and a SD card to go with it.

Come on, peeps! You don't need extra fine details with game cameras..... it's not like you're taking photos of animals for National Geographic or whatever, so long as it's good enough to tell what kind of animal you're looking at, you're golden!

Very true, all I need is to be able to look at it and see which chicken is which.

Generally speaking, night vision isn't that urgent for me since my birds don't lay during the night, the night vision is just an added bonus I guess!

I have some cameras just like it only marketed under a different brand name. Very good camera and takes very good nighttime pictures when most of the predators roam here.
