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.

Question

Time lapse mode intervals?

When the camera is set in time lapse mode what is the intervals between shots? I looked at the manual at a Cabela's store, and I believe it said it could be set from 5 minutes apart to 8 hrs apart. Is that correct because most other cameras have settings programmable anywhere from 5 seconds up. If it is preset at 5 minutes apart the camera would miss a LOT of animal movement if it was set to capture movement over a food plot.

In the "setup mode" you will be able to view the surrounding are in the monitor. Press the manual camera icon located on the right just under the del button. This will snap a picture & you can use your range finder to determine just how far out the camera is reaching. You could just walk around entering from different trail locations to judge effectiveness. I did. Made for some interesting shots.
