We’ve been impressed with the display quality from the Strike Force XD. The dual lenses have made a noticeable difference on night pictures, creating more contrast and clarity. We don’t visit a difference in day display quality out of this Strike Force Pro XD to the standard Strike Force HD Pro. Still, day pictures certainly are a real plus and display good color, contrast, and depth.
Daytime video is slightly improved with the proceed to 1080, although the clarity of the video isn’t practically as sharp as the Browning Advantage cameras. Similar to the pictures, the night time videos have seen a noticable difference in both clarity and contrast.

Previously, many persons get confused with the megapixel rating trail camera manufacturers advertise. Companies inflate the mpxl rating to attract eyes with their products. They do that through interpolation, which digitally adds megapixels to a photography without actually bettering the picture.
The easiest way to judge display quality is to check out actual pictures. You will observe this the most when you zoom in on a full-size image a camera has taken. The facts of the picture can look hazy as well as digitized. That is normal, also to be expected.

If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every a day, the Strike Force HD Pro XD would last 10.three months in the field on a couple of 6 AA Lithium Batteries. We think about this to be outstanding, especially taking into consideration the camera only uses 6 batteries.
If this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night videos (10-second videos) every a day, it could last 2.8 months in the field on a couple of lithium batteries. This is respectable battery life for video mode.

You will see the case design to be practically identical to the Browning Strike Force HD Pro, with the clear difference being the XD has 2 lenses (one for day and one for night images) in comparison to just one single. The case is small, solid and durable. It comes with an adjustable metal back bracket that swivels along (about 30° flexibility). The bracket permits easy along adjustments without having to use twigs and limbs for shims. If you want more adjustability, we still recommend the Slate River Mount.
The Sdcard is simple to enter and out and the battery eject button is simpler compared to the regular Pro models. We’ve found the temperature ratings in every Browning cameras are incredibly unreliable and off by a substantial margin. If you want the temperature readings to be accurate, we’d not advocate a Browning camera at the moment.
Overall, the case design on the Pro XD is outstanding. It not merely feels like an excellent camera, nonetheless it functions as if you would expect from a much higher-end model.
The Strike Force Pro XD has a tiny internal viewer which makes camera setup and picture/video playback extremely easy. The viewer is an enormous improvement and the live-view factor eliminates the guesswork in establishing for an ideal trailcam shot.
The inner setup should only take you just a few minutes – at most. Even though the inner viewing screen is small, Browning was nice enough to enlarge what on the screen for all those folks with poor eyesight!
The Strike Force Pro XD can accept SD cards up to 512 Gigabytes. That is plenty of storage than you could ever use.
