2012 Covert MP6

2012 Covert MP6 6 MP 28 count red flash digital camera report

This is a smaller resolution camera than the red 40 camera we just finished. It is also smaller in size 5X4 inches in size. Like its brother this camera has the array top with a 28 count blue looking array with the PIR and main lens just below. There is a tripod insert on the bottom and an un marked external port. The back of the camera has the Python feed thru plus the standard strap loops. Inside there is a view screen and is also  the LCD for programming with associated buttons. Bottom edge inside is the SD card slot and TV/USB ports. The external battery port is marked 6 V but no polarity. The back of the camera is the battery holder which holds 8 AA cells. Case is the Lost camouflage pattern which is the fall brown combination. Weather seal gaskets are very good and moisture tight. Noticeable filter clunk on transition only.
