Best Cellular Trail Cameras for 2022
The cellular trail camera industry is a competitive landscape. Manufacturers continuously build upon previous versions to create the best cellular trail camera they can. Here’s an overview of some of the top cellular trail cameras for 2022.
The Moultrie Edge, the newest cellular trail camera from Moultrie Mobile, has an array of attractive features. One of this camera’s key selling points is its vast amount of integrated memory. The Moultrie Edge cellular trail camera gives you 16 GB of internal data storage, reducing reliance on an SD or SDHC card! You can also go without the SIM card with the Moultrie Edge. Its AutoConnect technology works with major U.S. carriers.
This Moultrie hunting camera has a .85-second trigger speed, 40-degree field of view and 80-foot detection range, the Moultrie Edge is fine-tuned to ensure the animal is centered within each photo. Its optimal centering specs are paired with an impressive photo resolution of 33 megapixels (MPs) and HD video and audio recording, producing crystal-clear images, videos and sounds. This trail camera is also solar compatible, giving you the option to save on batteries! However, you have the option to run 8 or 16 AA alkaline or lithium batteries. Testing shows that with conservative settings (upload setting to twice per day, not running video), the Edge can get a year of life from a set of batteries.
TACTACAM Reveal XB
The TACTACAM Reveal XB is a decent cellular trail camera featuring a trigger speed under a half-second, allowing for more full-frame shots. It offers 24 MP, 16 MP, 12 MP and 8 MP options and strong weatherproof ratings. The varied MP options allow you to prioritize clarity or battery life, helping keep this solar-powered camera running on cloudy days. The solid weatherproof ratings let you use your camera whatever the weather brings.
The TACTACAM Reveal XB is multi-carrier capable with AT&T and Verizon on 4G LTE network plans. However, you will need SIM cards with this trail camera.
Covert Blackhawk LTE
The Covert Blackhawk LTE cellular trail camera has an impressive 100-foot range and multi-photo burst capabilities, increasing your chances of capturing a high-quality photo of a dominant buck or another prized animal. It also has a quiet operation, so it won’t scare away deer or other animals before taking the photo.
Some cons of the Covert Blackhawk trail camera include poor nighttime video quality and a somewhat clunky user experience on their app.
What Is the Best Cellular Trail Camera for the Money?
If you’re looking for a combination of high-quality cellular trail cameras at a uniquely affordable price, here are our recommendations for some of the top cellular game cameras for the money.
Moultrie Delta Base
Coming in at under $100, Moultrie’s Delta Base is one of the best cellular trail cameras for the money. While its specs are similar to the Moultrie Edge trail camera, the Moultrie Delta Base has a faster trigger speed and still-respectable 24MP photo resolution. Although the Delta Base’s 80-foot detection range and .75-second trigger speed make it less suited for centering photos than the Edge, it still captures quality images.
The Moultrie Delta Base cellular trail camera’s other specs include:
- An 80-foot invisible flash range.
- Video and audio recording.
- Up to 32 GB of data storage with an SD or SDHC card.
Moultrie’s Delta Base camera works with either AT&T or Verizon carrier plans.
The Moultrie EXO trail camera is a highly affordable option for game hunters on a budget. Its 70-foot detection, invisible flash range and .75-second trigger speed give it excellent centering capabilities for optimal game photos. While it has a slightly lower resolution than the Delta Base, its 18 MPs are more than enough to deliver a clear image.
Some of the Moultrie’s EXO trail camera’s other specs include:
- A 42-degree field of view.
- SD or SDHC card data storage of up to 32 GB.
Spypoint Link Micro LTE
Spypoint’s Link Micro LTE cellular trail camera’s affordability is one of its key selling points. This modestly priced camera includes a free app option with approximately 100 photos per month and less expensive paid subscription services. The technical specs for this cellular trail camera include the following:
- 10 MP resolution
- LTE 4G wireless carrier on a nationwide plan

- A lower megapixel count.
- Tricky setup.
- No audio or video recording.
