Yes, it’s that easy to operate.The new Tactacam camera has been built using the best electronics available.A good camera has to have a good lens and a good image sensor. Great news,your new Tactacam has both! This small hunting video camera was built with anultra high quality lens and a 12 megapixel low-light sensor. Instead of using afisheye lens, which pushes the images (Deer, Turkey, Waterfowl, Big Game, etc)further away, Tactacam uses a unique lens design, providing a view similar to whatwe see with the human eye. For an example, a 20yd shot no longer looks like an80yd shot. Now your 20yd shot will look like 20yds and your 100yd shot will look like100yds in your Tactacam video. And now with its ability to interchange the lensesyou can customize your Tactacam to fit any of your filming situations. From a 170degree lens for tight, up close, action or the normal 60 degree lens for all otherhunting scenarios. All this is what makes the NEW Tactacam the best huntingcamera on the market. Are you ready to “Share Your Hunt”?1
