Moonlight IR

The low cost low light specialist

Big pixels for better night images.

Instead of adding more megapixels that don’t necessary improve image quality, Cuddeback’s Moonlight IR uses a low light sensor with bigger pixels that gather more light. Bigger pixels create better night images with more range and less motion blur. In fact, the Moonlight IR matches the IR illumination performance of our premium cameras at a much lower price. And when you consider that 75% of deer images are taken at night, it makes sense to design a camera for optimum night performance.

"I just want pictures of deer." You asked, we listened. The Moonlight IR features the highest performance cameras at this price – ½ second trigger means fewer blanks. 8 MP images means you get good images. Easy to use so you spend more time scouting and less time managing your cameras.

Featuring ½ second trigger speed captures the deer that slower cameras would miss. Fast trigger speed and accurate animal detection means you get more critters and fewer blanks.

Super-Fast Recovery Speed is ready for the next picture within 1 second of taking the first, and the result is Cuddeback can capture 2 photos before many cameras can capture the first.

Cuddeback’s Super Simple Setup makes setup and deployment virtually fool proof. Spend more time scouting and less time messing with the settings.

Cuddeback Moonlight IR. High performance and value priced.
