DUAL SENSOR TECHNOLOGY. THE DIFFERENCE THAT'S NIGHT AND DAY. Most trail cameras use only one image sensor to capture images 24 hours a day. So you settle for daytime images that are less sharp and rich, and nighttime images that lack consistent illumination and range. CORE DS Dual Sensor Technology gives you two image sensors—one optimized for more sharp and rich images during the day and another optimized for images with consistent and further illumination at night. So you can plot their movements more reliably and plan your hunts more strategically.

So, my first version of this camera is a total lemon. It worked during testing at home in the backyard, but when placed in the wild it completely failed. LCD stays black in set-up mode, menu button no longer works and it doesn't trigger. Sending it in to Bushnell under warranty since the return window has closed for Amazon. I will say that when it did work initially the video quality was very good and picture quality looked pretty good too, although perhaps a bit noisy even in daylight. Will report back after Bushnell addresses my warranty claim.
Update: Bushnell sent me an entirely new camera. Works as advertised. Picture quality is very good, 1080 60p video is very good in daylight. Night mode is acceptable and has definitely improved over the years. Biggest gripe, and I for the life of me cannot understand this, is that the battery compartment and the 1/4-20 mounting point are right next to each other meaning that you have to unmount the camera to change out the batteries. Not smart engineering. Not everyone just straps these things to trees. Sometimes there are no trees, and sometimes you do not want to mess with the framing of the camera.

Not at all what you would expect from Bushnell. To start with, the field of view is only 38 deg. It's like having blinders on. I could have lived with that except it continually would 'false trigger', 2 or 3 times, about 15 sec after a legitimate trigger, taking numerous useless videos. I tested this in my back yard for 3~4 nights and it ate up half the batteries (only takes six). The picture and video quality is very good, but I have trail cams that cost 1/3 less than this one that are much more reliable. Their picture quality might not be as good but still very acceptable. Very disappointed.
