The Bullseye AmmoCam Long Range Edition's New Features

Bullseye AmmoCam Long Range Edition’s New Features

By Clint Bryant

Shortly after submitting my original article on the Bullseye AmmoCam Long Range Edition in late 2015, I found out that some changes and upgrades had been made to the unit. Then, at the 2017 SHOT Show, Nick from Bullseye let Andy Backus of Long Range Hunting know about the improved capabilities added to Bullseye’s Target Manager app. Andy then asked me if I would be interested in putting the new features through their paces. Below you’ll find my thoughts and initial experiences with the upgraded AmmoCam Long Range Edition and its Target Manager app’s new and improved capabilities.

New Features:

Hardware
  • New HD Camera with Night Vision
Software
  • Initial Menu Screen Options
  • Target Setup
  • Target Grid Overlay
  • Scope Sight In
  • Group Measuring
These new additions and upgrades will be discussed in the order shown above.

Hardware
  • New HD Camera with Night Vision
Although the packaging, durable ammo box, WiFi hardware, 1 mile range base station receiver and 12 hour battery have remained basically the same, the AmmoCam now has an upgraded HD camera with night vision. This new camera takes up considerably less space inside the AmmoCam’s ammo box casing and has reduced the weight of the setup by 1 pound (from 5.2 lbs. to 4.2 lbs.).

The new HD camera also boasts better resolution and color quality as compared to its predecessor. To be sure of this, I printed a test sheet with font sizes ranging from 15 pt up to 80 pt. I tested both the old and new cameras from a distance of 10 feet with the app on my phone fully zoomed in.

With the new HD camera, the size 30 font appeared equally as clear or clearer than the size 40 font on the old camera. Color quality, as mentioned earlier, was also improved with the new HD camera. Initially, I was hoping for an even greater improvement in resolution but the improvement seen is probably adequate for its intended application.

Software
All of the new options discussed in the remainder of this article can be utilized with the original, non-HD camera system as well as the new HD camera system. As long as your Target Manager app is up to date, all of its features, including the new upgrades, can be used. No need to buy a new AmmoCam with updated HD camera to enjoy the upgraded Target Manager features.
