Why Game-Vu?
Game-Vu is designed as the ultimate tool for serious hunters who are more concerned with knowing what is
out there rather starting a photo album. Game-Vu is designed to provide instant, in-the-field information. This make the Game-Vu superior to film monitors. Unlike the traditional Film and Flash systems you can make adjustments to your hunting area right then and there. After all, if you are like most hunters you may not get another chance to move or adjust your hunting spot for another week. Like most 35-mm trail cameras the date and time is stamped on every Game-Vu image. While it is true that Game-Vu images are not as sharp and clear as photographs taken by a 35-mm camera-based system, they still offer enough resolution to identify individual animals and in the case of a buck determine the quality of his rack.

With Game-Vu, all of this information can be gathered in the field, no waiting or paying for film to be developed.

Traditional trail camera systems use a visible strobe flash that often spooks passing animals or alerts trespassers to the camera's presence. Game-Vu utilizes 16 non-visible infrared lights so it never spooks the animals you are trying to pattern and reduces the chance that a trespasser will spot your camera in the woods. Game-Vu's maximum nighttime range is approximately 15 feet. While this is shorter than some flash cameras, it is possible to get Game-Vu closer to your target area.

Finally Game-Vu is 100 percent solid state, so it makes no noise. By nature, 35-mm cameras feature a noisy, gear-driven film advance system along with the click of the shutter.

Never before have hunters had so many choices. Before choosing a trail camera it is important to understand the technology behind it and what it is designed to do. There will always be an application for 35-mm trail cameras, Game-Vu is offered as the stealthy alternative that delivers in-field information.
