Ordered five more from Trailcampro. Today's shipment came with the 2015 Browning Firmware
update file preloaded on a SD disk attached to each camera along with very simple instructions on how to update the camera. No more downloading and unzipping a file.

I have the same issue, but browning cs didn't mention a download fix. They want it mailed back...

I tried the update twice and still got black night pics. Took back to academy and got a new one. I hope this one works. Well see.

I read the user manual on this cam and didn't see a mode for both motion initiated pictures and video combination. The capture mode setting appears to be either pictures or video, but not both.

Example, I have my current cam configured to take 3 pictures followed by a 10 second video.

Can someone who has this camera verify this?

Appreciate it!

I don't think it has that capability. You might go to the Browning site and ask CS. Post if they give you the procedure.

Had the same experience with my first two. That was before the update was packaged with the camera and had to be downloaded from their web page. Pulled the file off the site a second time, unzipped and it worked perfect. Either I had a faulty download or the unzipped file was corrupted. Blame it on Bill Gates. grin

The last ones that I got from TCP were on a deal that included a free SD disk. The disk had been removed from its holder, software copied to the it and the holder retaped to the main package. Black magic marker line across the disk holder. Probably to indicate the camera was good to go.

The original pair now have gone back to black pictures at night. Did the update for the third time and put them on a feeder today for testing. No confidence that this will work but getting my ducks in line before I go back to Browning.

Aeb, thanks for the update, kind of sours me on them right now, last year model are super great TC's, cant think of a reason they would mess with something that already works. I would be getting a tad PO'd by now.

Mine did same thing. It shows the software is the new update. Very frustrating. Its out now but I have very little confidence the night pics are working.

I pulled the card on my Browning Strike Force today. It's been in the field since May 23rd. Unfortunately I didn't have a good place to put it, so I had 2000+ pictures of weeds swaying in the wind. What's confusing is during all that time I only had 4 night pictures, and all the day pictures were between 8 AM and 6 PM. I'm going to try the update and see if it makes a difference. If it doesn't take night pictures then I may have to go with another camera. I will say that the day pictures are outstanding. Also want to add that I expected the batteries to be half way charged or dead, they were still at 100% with the energizer lithium batteries!

I read on the Browning website that the upgrade is for the BTC-5HD I have the BTC-5. Not sure if its the same camera, I'm going to call customer service in the morning.

I have completely lost faith in Browning being able to get this model working.

Yes, after that I think i will hold off one getting anymore until they get their act together. I hope you advise them that you are blogging about this issue and they ARE loosing business.

Thanks for the feedback I believe I will get another brand of camera, just use this one for day pictures. The 10 MP pics are crystal clear. This stinks now I have to search for a camera that will take night pictures. Reviews on cameras are all over the map as too who had success and who hated it.

Browning now has a new software update on their CS site. Hope they finally have it right this time. I'm past ready to ship everything back.

The latest update is BTC-F07140.

BTC-F06260 did not solve my problems.

I just pulled mine and the first two nights all pics were black and the last two nights worked fine. Definitely cant trust it.
