ALDI Maginon Wildlife Camera Review

Image Quality

Image quality varies greatly; you won’t be getting any award winning images. However, when the light is even you can get some nice stuff.

Unfortunately at night the quality does drop significantly, images are only really suitable for record shots. As already mentioned, the IR light is too strong for any close images, however wide shots are fine but there is a fair amount of noise.

During the day, shadow detail does cause some problems, you have to study the image closely to see identify the subject. However, I found bringing the images in to image editing software and adjusting the shadows, enabled me to see a bit more detail in the picture.
