Leupold RCX-1 Trail Camera

Owning the “Mack Daddy” of a particular type of product can be a good thing or a bad thing. Usually the bad part about owning something that is top-shelf is that you almost instantly want to throw out all the lower quality items in your arsenal. Today, I’m here to tell you that this is the case after testing a new game camera from Leupold.
A few weeks back I was approached by Leupold to fully work over their new RCX-1 Trail Camera System. They wanted a fully detailed Trusted Review that was unbiased and without holding back. I agreed to test the product in many different scenarios, conditions and do everything I could to find bugs in the system.
Now everybody knows that Leupold has a legendary brand, but would this new product be just as well made as their optics? Would the RCX Trail Camera System be a game changer for the industry as well as for the Leupold company? I have to say that I personally had very high expectation for its performance so I hoped it wouldn’t disappoint.
A detailed analysis is provided below in the review scoring sections, but first let me list off the features about RCX Trail Camera System.
- The camera proper is 8 megapixels, giving you high quality photos
- The RCX can hold up to a 32GB SDHC memory card, allowing for more high quality video and pictures to be stored in one place
- It can by pointed and aimed using the RCX handheld: no more guessing what exactly the camera will capture
- An easy to use plug-n-play system lets you plug in, download and go back to the truck without opening the camera
- The RCX’s handheld apparatus works as a card reader too, which makes checking other trail cameras’ memory cards much easier and hassle free: there’s no need to buy an additional reader
- The RCX Trail Camera System is super easy to set up, you can use the presets or customize it to your needs
