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.

When raining the movement does not trip the trigger and it only takes pictures of moving game. It also works underwater. I had a camera in a swamp and we had so much rain it submerged the camera for 2 days and it continued to take great pictures during and after.

Question

Night Pictures

Why didn't you put anything in the description about night pictures. This is the second camera I've reviewed that didn't mention night pictures. Until I found it in the Q&A, I concluded that it only took day pictures. I almost marked it off my list of possibilities.

Honestly, it depends on how many times the camera is activated. It literally depends on how many events the camera picks up...so your guess is as good as mine! It will last several days if not weeks for normal movement.
