Best of all, everything happens in real time and right in the field thanks to our exclusive USB Controller/Viewer - a programming masterpiece that puts all the power of the RCX Trail Camera
System at your fingertips.
Silent Digital Shutter
The Leupold RCX Trail Camera System
captures images with no moving parts. The XD processor silently captures the image from the CMOS sensor as soon as the PIR sensor is activated. The Infrared Filter activates at night, and then deactivates in the morning, providing instant spectral adaptation to protect the highly sensitive sensor from infrared rays during the day. It then responds in spectacular detail at night when the filter moves away from the camera lens. Moving the filter just twice a day conserves battery life and minimizes noise that can alert game to the presence of the camera. Compare this to other camera systems that produce an audible, often game-spooking "clicking" noise each time a picture is taken.
Safe and Secure
A specially designed Lock-Down Security Plate (included with the RCX-2
) provides for rock-solid mounting as well as protection from theft or vandalism. A heavy-gauge Master Lock Python® cable (not included) or nylon strap (included) attaches through the mounting plate and around the tree. A single nail-mounting slot is also built into the top of the security plate.
Standard SDHC compatible
The RCX can use up to a 32GB SDHC card, setting a new standard for SD camera systems. Cards are easily installed and removed via a waterproof trap door access.
Extra Long Battery Life
The RCX cameras will operate continuously for months using eight AA Lithium batteries. The battery cartridge tray can be pre-loaded and quickly installed into the camera in the field. The camera units also offer 12-volt external battery capabilities. Optional rechargeable battery kit also available. The RCX Controller/Viewer utilizes a Lithium-Ion battery (included). The RCX-2 also allows deactivation of 12 LEDs to maximize battery life.
Vibrant images With XD (Xtreme Definition) Image Quality
The RCX delivers both high-resolution color (day) and infrared (night) still images, as well as a video/audio option to capture game activity in your area. The advanced system uses CMOS sensor technology similar to that found in higher-end camcorders to produce tremendously sharp, crisp 8 megapixel images in the RCX-1
and 10 megapixel images in the Leupold RCX-2
. For exceptionally clear images at night, the RCX-1 provides 36 PIR LEDs (or 48 PIR LEDs with the RCX-2) combined with XD image processing and advanced auto-exposure calculations. A special day/night sensor allows the camera to quickly adjust exposure as light levels change and to activate the infrared (IR) system at night.
"Blink-of-an-Eye" Trigger Speed
The Leupold RCX
offers a lightning fast, less than one second trigger speed. This "blink-of-an-eye" speed, combined with Dual Sensor Technology (DST) and a wide angle 54-degree camera lens, means you'll capture more images of full bodies and racks rather than ears and rears. This quick trigger speed while in "Most Picture Mode" will capture more pictures than other cameras on the market.
The RCX camera
frame is contructed of a durable, high-impact ABS/polycarbonate blend shell for maximum strength and protection for the internal elements. Tested to a rigorous accelerated weather and UV exposure test, the RCX will deliver the dependable, reliable performance you need to locate and pattern your trophy animal, season after season.
Many trail cameras take up to 15 seconds to recover and be ready to take another picture. From complete rest, the RCX takes just a couple of seconds to snap back into action. On lower settings the recovery is instant.
Dual Sensor Technology and a Wider Field of View
The Leupold RCX-2
offers Dual Sensor Technology (DST) to deliver a more complete picture of game activity in your area. Choose the wide cone for 45 degrees of "sensing coverage" to a range of 45 feet…ideal for larger areas or to cover the corner of a field. Select the narrower 10 degree cone that reaches out to 90 feet - for use with a specific landmark or feeder. The DST sensors automatically trigger the camera's shutter when moving game (heat) is detected within the selected cone's coverage. Or you can choose to have both sensors active at the same time. The Leupold RCX is the only trail camera to offer this ground-breaking technology. A wide 54° field of view camera lens means you'll not only see the animals within the 10/45 degree cone's "sensing coverage," but you will see any animals on the fringes (where the big bucks often hang).
Note: The RCX-1 offers single 45° sensing coverage to 45 feet.
