Bushnell Trophy Cam?? #2541399 08/28/11 10:07 PM

For those of you that use the Bushnell Trophy Cam, I have a question. Some of my photos are great, but some are "washed out". When looking in the lens hole of the case, I see a pinkish lens that seems to swing either over or away from this lens opening. I can tilt the case one way or the other while tapping the case and can cause the pinkish colored lens to be either over or clear of the camera lens opening. Is the position of this lens possibly a factor in determining whether my photos are correctly exposed vs. those that are "washed out"? Thanks

No, that is the IR filter arm you are seeing. It moves into place when it switches to IR mode in the evening. What you are probably seeing is the result of the IR filter arm not moving into place at the right time, meaning you would get a "white out" situation when the filter arm moves over the lens too soon(before it's actually dark out). This can be due to camera placement sometimes, such as if you have your camera mounted under a heavy canopy of trees or other location with lots of shade. If you move it out from under the canopy, you might get better results. Hope this helps. If you want, check out http://www.chasingame.com/ for lots of good info on trail cameras.

How do you like those bushnell trophy cams so far? We have bought 9 of them and have had pretty good luck so far, only had em out for about 2 months.

Other than the occasional "washed out" photo thing that I mentioned, my experience has been great!

I have bought 2 and sent 3 back for repair. One of the 2 still gets white-out pictures on most of the daytime shots. I will never buy another one.
