Browning Command Ops Pro Trail Camera Review 2018
The Browning Command Ops Pro Trail Camera boasts of 0.5 seconds trigger speed as well as 70’ detection and flash range – ideal for capturing images or recording videos of objects.

It can detect objects swiftly. It uses lithium batteries that have a longer lifespan (more than 8 months). All that and it is still a top trail camera under $100.
