We know, it can get a bit confusing. We sell a lot of different models of cameras with similar names, and it can be difficult keeping track of your specific model code, so we have put together this little list for our most popular bird box and wildlife cameras.
It is organised by connection type, but there are pictures as well to allow you to scroll through and just find the camera you have.

NCIP2WF or NCIP9WF
These models look identical, like in the picture. The easiest way to tell the specific model is to look on the box the camera came in, the model code will be on the back. If you don't have the original packaging any more, try to remember the time you bought the camera. If it was purchased before December 2019, you almost certainly have an NCIP9WF. If it was purchased after December 2019 you almost certainly have an NCIP2WF. You can also check the email you were sent when you purchased the item, or when it was dispatched to you.
If you are still unsure, you can find out by putting the camera into AP mode and looking at the name of the Wi-Fi network which the camera broadcasts. The NCIP2WF will broadcast a network called 'IPC_xxx', and the NCIP9WF will have a network called 'BEYE_xxx'. If the camera is already connected to your Wi-Fi you will have to completely reset the camera to put it into AP mode, so don't do this unless for some reason it is crucial that you find out the type of camera it is.
These cameras are white and significantly larger than the other WI-Fi cameras we offer.
This camera was released in reduced quantities, it looks the same as the GFIP220BWF.
These cameras are green, and have an Ethernet port on the end of the cable. They also do not have an SD card slot, unlike
the Wi-Fi models.
These cameras look very similar to the NCIP2, except they are black in colour. They also have an Ethernet port on the end of the cable, and do not have an SD card slot.
The CMOSNC7G is one of our most common wired analogue cameras. You can identify it from the small shape only shared with the NC701G, and the three cables coming from it to allow for power, video and audio connections.
We no longer sell this model of camera, but it can be identified by the black colour, square shape, and the three cables coming out of it for power, video and audio.
This is the successor to the NCF15EA. You can identify it by the black colour, square shape and the cable trailing from it. This camera does not have a microphone (though one can be attached) so by default it only has a cable for video and for power. There is also a toggle stick where the cable splits into two.
You can identify these cameras from the distinctive small size and the small antenna. There is only one jack on the camera to allow for power to be supplied, because it sends the wireless signal to the silver receiver box.
Battery powered trail camera
This is the only model of trail camera we currently sell.
