Scott, on some cameras it takes a few minutes for it to switch from daytime pics to night. So, set it how you want it, switch it to "ON", take it to a dark place and leave it be for awhile. Then walk through it's path. Make sure no light gets to the camera before you do or it might try to reset to daytime. Try that and let me know how it works out. I would hate for you to have gotten a bad camera after all the hype I put behind it.

Well I put the camera in my basement with no lights on for over 30 minutes.  I then walked by in front of it and it still is taking black pictures.  The first picture is when I had it in the setup mode and took the picture by hand and the second picture is when it was in the on position.  I don't know what to think anymore except to call bushnell on monday.

Yeah, I would do that. I have looked all through my info on these cameras and can't find anything on the IR's. I think what is happening is the daytime filter isn't moving out of position when you go to the "ON" mode. This is the iris on the camera. It closes down in the light and opens up at night to let all available light in. Some reason it is staying in daytime mode. Can you see the IR's light up red when you walk by it?

I would say that it is defiantly the daytime filter then. When you switch the camera to "ON" the daytime filter should move into position. You can actually hear it if you listen closely. For some reason it is not ever opening up for night images. Bushnell may be able to tell you what to do over the phone. It may just be something in the settings that you can adjust. Let me know what you find out.

I will be returning the camera back to amazon where I purchased it.  I don't trust camera's anymore that are broke to begin with.  I haven't lost faith in Bushnell and I am hoping that at the Madison Deer and Turkey Expo they are there and I will talk to them and maybe buy one there.

I wouldn't give up on the Bushnell Trail Camera's just yet.....the new 2010 Models are suppose to be even better and more improved,just buy one from a supplier that will stand behind their products.Even some of the best name brand Trail Camera's have their faults and problems,I've had to return my Cuddeback Capture IR Camera and ended up buying a Moultrie I-60 that performs wonderfully for me,I even bought a second one this past Christmas.

Well I just bought another one about 3 days ago and got it in the mail today and this one works just fine.  I really like the nighttime videos on it and will be putting it out this weekend.
