The Camtraptions products contained in the Garden Bundle will last over 5 days on standby when powered by alkaline batteries. This life can be extended by connecting external batteries to the Flash. Camtraptions external batteries can be purchased separately, or you can upgrade to the Wilderness Bundle for a longer standby time of over 12 days, plus an extra flash and camera housing.
The bundle has been designed to provide everything necessary for stills photography, but video recording may also be possible for certain camera models. Please contact us for details.

The following items are also recommended to help create your first camera trap:

- A tripod or Jungle Mounts Tripod for mounting the camera.
- A 5m Extension Cable if you want to position the PIR Sensor further from the camera.

- A set of Wireless Triggers v2 if you would like to use the flash wirelessly.
*Some entry-level Nikon cameras do not have a shutter release port for connecting third party trigger equipment, which makes them incompatible with this bundle.
*Some entry-level Canon DSLRs feature a non-standard flash hot shoe mount and are therefore incompatible with the Flash Hot Shoe Adapter and Camera Trap Flash in this bundle.
