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.
