The mid-year sales seem to be getting bigger and bigger every year — as retailers like Cabela’s and Bass Pro try to keep pace with America’s favorite e-commerce company, which we covered yesterday. This space race for the biggest discount means big discounts for you, the consumer, and the Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops “Legendary Savings” event has one of our favorite discounted products.
The Tactacam Reveal XB is on sale for $119.97—20% off its regular price. The XB is the slightly higher-end version of the Tactacam Reveal X, our favorite trail camera and one we’ve covered extensively. In short, the Reveal XB is a step up from the X because it can work on either AT&T or Verizon sim cards. Reveal X would make you choose between two providers at checkout.
What does this mean? Basically, you can switch providers based on where you are. If you’re on private property, you probably know which cell service you want, but for anyone else, determining what carrier might be better than where is a guessing game. With the XB, pack a pair of SIM cards (one Verizon, the other AT&T) and choose which one to use based on who has the best coverage. Between the two, you’ll be covered almost anywhere in the US
For the Reveal XB’s hardware, you get a nice 80-foot, glare-free infrared flash, a sub-half-second shot, an IP66 weatherproof rating, and a built-in GPS to track the camera’s location. You also have the flexibility to shoot at 24MP, 16MP, 12MP or 8MP. Then, when connected to Tacatacam’s app, everything is sent directly to your phone. From the app, you can check your battery, view photos as they arrive, take videos or photos, and organize your photos into folders.
The Reveal XB doesn’t come with anything but the trail camera, so to get started you’ll also need a memory card, SIM card (Verizon and/or AT&T), and 12 AA batteries (buy rechargeable AAs if you want to save money in the long run).
