An Easy-to-Use Workhorse Game Camera
Moultrie M-880 Gen2

Loaded with features, the hard-working and easy-to-use Moultrie M-880 Gen2 is a good option for gathering the field intelligence a hunter needs for the next hunt

When it comes to managing and scouting for deer and other wildlife, game cameras provide a great source of information. The more features and options a game camera offers, the more helpful information it can deliver.

For this very reason, most seasoned hunters and land managers want a camera loaded with features that is easy to operate. The Moultrie M-880 Gen2 game camera fits nicely into that category. Considered the workhorse of the Moultrie line, the M-880 Gen2 combines advanced features, clear pictures day and night, and ease of use at a good price point.

This second generation camera is an improvement upon the popular M-880 model with better image quality, longer battery life, and easy-to-use features, including a new “Quick Start” setting, which is based on the most popular user camera settings. Thanks to the “Quick Start” setting, users can set up these cameras in less than 20 seconds – even in low-light conditions.

The Moultrie M-880 Gen2 is an 8.0 megapixel long-range IR LED mini game camera, but don’t let its small size fool you. The mini camera offers a 16:9 aspect ratio and high-quality images or HD videos. The camera is triggered by an infrared motion sensor, which detects heat and movement up to 50 feet away.


The Illumi-Night sensor provides bright, clear nighttime images. Outfitted with 36 of Moultrie’s long-range LEDs, the M-880 Gen2 has excellent illumination up to 100 feet, and the Motion Freeze feature reduces nighttime blur. With a trigger speed less than one second, the camera won’t miss that big buck, should it walk into range day or night.

For game managers and hunters wanting more control, the M-880 Gen2 has two advanced features for controlling how many images and videos are captured. The trigger delay can be adjusted from five seconds to 30 minutes. The powerful multi-shot setting will take a series of images in quick succession each time the camera detects motion.

The camera can alternate between motion detect and time-lapse modes. Land owners monitoring large food plots may choose to run the camera in time-lapse mode. The optional-time lapse program can be run once or twice per day with an interval between image capture that can be adjusted.

The M-880 Gen2 can be set up to stamp each photo and video with date, time, temperature, moon phase and a customizable camera name, to provide critical information for hunts.


The mini game camera is powered by eight AA batteries, which will run the camera for up to 17,000 images. It’s also compatible with Moultrie’s 12-volt external power source to extend life. The new rugged case, outfitted in Mossy Oak Bottomland camo, keeps the camera’s most critical elements, like the lens and IR filter, protected from outside elements.

Loaded with features, the hard-working and easy-to-use M-880 Gen2 is perfect for gathering all the field intelligence the hunter needs to give him or her confidence for the next hunt.
