Question

why is my camera only showing black pictures at night?

I remember the first time I turned the camera on, there was a 'night' mode. I left the camera in 'normal' mode if I remember correctly. After finding all my night photos were just black images, I went to try to change it to night mode, but cannot seem to find the setting in the menu. What am I missing here?

Question

Does the camera have a 12-volt battery plug??

My cameras have a lot of activity and they burn through AA batteries quickly. I like to plug my cameras into a large 12-volt battery. Swap out the SD card and off you go.

I noticed that to, so I set it up in the house in a controlled environment and this is what I found. The camera will record the full programed length of video if it detects movement for the entire time. If it stops detecting movement say five seconds into the video then it will stop recording and start recording again when there is movement again. I think that it is just a smart way for the camera to save battery live and memory space to only record when there is something to record.

You can, but it's not real easy to see during bright sunlight. I still prefer to download them and see them on the computer, but during season when I'm checking it regularly, it will be nice to be able to scan through them quickly and delete them if there's not a big buck or something I want to see on the computer.

The Cabela's Outfitter Series® 8MP IR Trail Camera, Item: IK-461143, and SD card will operate well at low temperatures. Lead alkaline batteries are better during the warmer months and lithium battery's are more suited for colder temperatures. Below freezing temperatures can greatly affect the batteries.

I have found that it will record the full programed length of time if there is something in view of the camera that is moving. so if you were to go and move around in front of you camera for 20 second it should record you the full amount of programed time. if you were to just pass in front of it, it should only record you as you pass then stop recording when nothing is detected to save battery life and memory space.
