I had bought the Wildgame innovations new Insite camera and I could not get it to work at all. I returned it and purchased this camera after reading the reviews for the Tactacam Reveal Cellular Trail camera. My cell phone had 2 bars of service but my Camera had full bars 4G with the nice size antenna they use. I started receiving pictures within a few hours of placing the camera. Pictures were clear, and very nice! I am loving this camera, I am glad the developers are listening to suggestions on the app. I would like to see like a live view option, where we can tap into The camera and just see what’s there sometimes when I think there should be deer there in. It getting a hit. It would be nice to be able to live view it and see what’s sitting there. But great job on this camera, and keep up the good work. I have taken about 30 pictures and battery life is still at 100% on alkaline. You can beat this camera especially for the price if you are on the fence on this camera please take a look at this camera you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Tactacam for making an affordable very good quality trail camera.
Love this Cam!!!
After 3 years of using the Reconyx Ultrafire, I heard about the Tactacam Reveal. I was interested because of the cell capabilities and the video function. I had several friends say it would rival the quality of my Reconyx and blow away my bushnells. I run around 20 cameras at a time and thought I would like to try the Reveal and see if it would be a good replacement for the lower quality bushnell cams. I was hoping for quality in between the two cams and was not expecting them to be as good as the Ultrafire. After two days of operation, I was very pleased to see the Reveal was about 90 % as good as the Ultrafire! Almost the same quality pics and video! I was like a little kid waiting to see what would pop up on my phone next! The $100 price, instead of the $600 price of the Ultrafire, makes this a no brainer, I will definitely be replacing several of my cams this season with these new cams and will be giving my best referrals to all of my friends and family! Thank you, Tactacam. Great quality product, just like all of your other cams!
App needs work, firmware also
The notification badge icon on the app doesn’t work and it is toggled to on in app settings and phone settings. The point of a cell cam is to not have to travel to the woods, not being able to view the 24mp pics on the app is a bummer. If I want to see good pictures I’d have to go and retrieve the SD card, the reason why all of us buy cell cams is so we don’t have to travel out into the woods and stink up the area. Also the camera settings in the app where it shows “camera status: last update, battery, signal, memory, temperature” all of it says unknown. If the camera had cell service it should be able to transfer that data to the app. GREAT camera and great features but there are some kinks that need to be worked out and improved upon as mentioned in this review. Can’t wait for a future update to remedy these issues.
App needs work!
i’ll update the rating if the app starts getting updated. badges should be a simple addition. Banners are a PITA esp when working on something or trying to open a banner from another app when this banner suddenly pops up. A select all deleted function is also great. Sure it’s not needed and it really does nothing but I like to delete all of the photos daily and when they are hitting corn or minerals a lot it’s impossible to keep up with deleting. It’s ashamed a GREAT camera has such a poor app. I’d pay twice as much for the camera if the app was more practical! The only thing Spartan and spypoint does better is the app. I hate to pay 400$ for a camera for the woods but after owning reconyx trail cams i’m spoiled to the best so imo get the app functionality up and tactacam will own the trail cam business. until then they are just blah.
App pictures are terrible
I have yet to pull my SD card from the camera to see the quality of pictures to it. I was really pumped after seeing the 5 star ratings online compared to the other cellular cameras and the price for a cellular camera. I gave 2 stars because the price is good and the setup is simple. The reason I can’t give it any better is the poor quality pictures that comes to the app. I have to leave the camera on 8 MP just to have somewhat of a clear photo I can see from my phone. This is the main reason for wanting a cellular camera and to avoid entering the area every time to check the SD card. If the quality of the photo improves coming to the app to where I can actually set the camera to 24 MP I’d give it a 5 star until then this is where I have to leave it.
Notifications and picture Scroll
The app doesn’t send me notifications when I get pictures (yes I changed the notifications through the app and in the settings). When I swipe down on my notifications screen they will be there. But no badge icon either so if I missed the notifications there’s isn’t anything on the app either. And then when I look at my pictures I can’t swipe left or right to look at the other pictures. I can only look at one at a time. That’s extremely annoying! Also the screen on the camera needs a delay test mode that has like a ten second countdown so you can close the camera and take a picture so you know where the camera is pointing.
Love the cameras and by far better pics than my other cell cams. The new update makes viewing pics so much easier. Tactacam has done a wonderful job. Rated 4 of 5 for one reason and one only, would love to see the App with the ability to send pics at set times. For instance every picture taken, once a day,or even up to 3-4 times a day. Just help me sleep instead of waking up all night for every transmission. These cameras are addicting to us fanatics and can’t help myself but to check. Can’t wait to have 20!
Great camera and app
This camera has really rocked the Industry in my opinion. I’ve tried several cell cams in the past few years. None of them compare to this one and this one is half the price. The app is getting better with it being new it needed some tweaks and they have updated some things. As requested with several updates in the future to make it the best app ever built just like they do with there cameras. I’m impressed as a whole with the quality on product and efficiency of the camera and app. Great job tactacam
Great camera perfect price point
This is my first cellular camera and I am absolutely impressed with it for the price. There are a few flaws tho but for 99 Bux what the heck why not. You should be able to scroll through photos instead of backing out each time (annoying). Also the antenna is weak at the joint. A bear cub recently broke it off but it still works surprisingly. All in all I’m very happy with it. Sure beats walking to a remote location to pull an SD card
This is a great camera and the app is continuously being updated by Tactacam which is a great feature. I can’t wait for the iPhone notification tone to be added. It would be nice to have better quality photos sent to my phone rather than the thumbnail but I also realize that this would use up more battery at the same time. I have pictures of a buck I didn’t even know existed as well as numerous Bear that I did not know lived on my property A+
The app doesn’t work very good I know you guys are awesome this should be a 5 star. Please fix so I can change this soon. 1) you can not turn off or on cellular function if you want to use without cellular as a regular camera on on camera or the app. Have to remove sims to disconnect that. 2) no sound for notifications not even a vibrate either. This is a must if we do not want to hear it we can turn it off on our phone. The sound is turned on both my phone and app NOTHING. 3) doesn’t have app refresh in phone settings. I’m figuring that’s probably why it says nothing or unknown for my camera status. Or wait 24 hrs to change the settings on the camera it should be instant. 4) no way to turn of the PIR sensor for false triggers or unwanted animals like cows making the camera go nuts. 5) doesn’t have a daily test picture sent to you make sure camera is working property.
Picture scroll, and downloading
The camera works great and gets awesome service. The only issues are that I can’t scroll left to right through the pics when your in the screen where you can zoom in on the pictures. Some pictures only partially download and the parts that don’t download will be gray and some pictures won’t download at all and it will just be a black screen.
Excellent App / Awesome Camera !
The Reveal camera is budget friendly, high quality camera that reliably delivers photos instantly to your smart phone, computer or tablet. The App is feature rich, easy to use and is quite possibly best on the market. Camera setup is easily accessed through the app, along with camera setting that can be changed and set remotely. This App and camera will not disappoint!
Best app for the best camera
This app is super user friendly and updated regularly as user input is received. The camera is the best on the market and when used with the app, it makes it even better. All the perks of a quality camera sent to an app for instant review. It makes it super easy to keep the camera up to date with the latest upgrades and features.
I think the camera works flawlessly with great pictures. The app needs a little work and it would be 5 stars, I would change the app where you can scroll through the pictures instead of having to back out and go to another one and I would fix it to where you can select all to delete or pick and choose which ones.
