HCO Outdoor Products is proud to announce the release of its new HCO Spartan SR1 “Big Game” camera. This camera is a “clean sheet” design, which is focused on durability, usability, and above all outstanding performance.
Starting with a list of design requirements, compiled by a team with years of trail camera and hunting experience, the SR1 demonstrates a well though out design. No detail is too small when it comes to durability. In an effort to obtain the highest level of water resistance, a flush case mating area is used on both the front and rear case halves. On the front case half, an oversized rubber gasket is used to ensure a complete seal. To close the unit, is an oversized, double hinged latch. This latch provides abundant pressure to seal the case halves yet is still easy to operate, even with gloved hands. The rear case houses a full compliment of 12 AA batteries, which provides a long battery life. These batteries are arranged in an upper and lower bay so that the batteries are not stacked end to end. This arrangement provides for each battery to have its own slot, thereby securing the batteries firmly and eliminating the common problem of batteries becoming unseated.
Beyond the structural attributes of the SR1, lies an ergonomic, user-friendly interior design. Starting with the easy to read 2” True color display, which displays a logical and well-organized menu. Below the screen resides an 8 button key set, with dedicated keys for image or video playback, menu key, directional navigation keys and an enter key. Along the bottom, are ports for USB and 6V DC power and the on/off switch, all of which have large, easily visible labels. Finally, a SD memory card slot is found on the left side. This slot has a cutout, which allows an easy grip on the inserted SD card. Cards up to 32 GB can be inserted for abundant storage.
If the ultimate judgment of a trail camera is its performance, the SR1 stands ready to impress. Still image resolution is a highly respectable 8MP, however video resolution is a massive 720P HD. Crisp, clear night images and video are illuminated by a full blackout flash invisible IR LED array. This array provides abundant IR illumination out to 60ft or more. The final link in the chain of performance is, a less than one second trigger time. This allows all of these features to capture the intended target every time.
If a trail camera needs to be durable, dependable, easy to use and take great pictures, look no further than the SR1. SR1 series includes different models feature regular IR flash, invisible blackout flash, 2G/3G cellular wireless, etc.
