Reconyx SM750

License Plate Camera? Honestly I dunno what a regular Joe would be using / needing it for? Unless you’re a copper or a vigilantist, I don’t quite see the purpose. Anyway, the Reconyx SM750 is the only infrared trail camera on the market that can capture vehicle license plates at night.

Most plates are reflective and state laws mandate that you have lights shine on the plates. This effectively “washes” out the plate for an infrared camera and all you normally get is a white blur.

The SM750 has been programmed to overcome the reflective surface and to capture the plates and identify the intruder. At the expense of capturing the license plate number, the rest of the picture is almost completely black. The pictures must be dimmed down enough so that the plates won’t get “washed” out.
