Is the Aldi Wildlife Camera a great buy for wildlife photographers? What Digital Camera sent Luke Massey out into the wild to find out how it performs
The camera is covered in typical khaki print, although I’m sure most animals will notice the strange box with eyes sprouting from a tree. Once in position try to leave it in one spot for a few days to allow the animals to accept it.
The back is slightly concave making it a little easier to attach to tree trunks, however only one tie is included in the kit. I’d recommend using a long piece of wire to secure it even more and, if you’re really worried about leaving it out, a laptop securing cable could provide extra security.
One problem I found was that the side clips on the camera can be a bit fiddly, if you haven’t got them clipped in the front has a tendency to fall off, so make sure they’re both clipped in securely. I actually ended up using some gaffer tape on the hinges to make this less of a problem.
