Leupold RCX-1 not taking night pictures

The camera was working great for 4 nights and now the infrared flash will not work and we get a bunch of black photos. How do I fix this?

    I suspect that since the moon was at crescent, there was not enough ambient light to work with the flash to take a night time picture. Same goes with night vision goggles. There has to be some small light source for them to work effectively.

I have the swann 8 channel platinum cctv camera system and whilst it works with amazing quality during the day, the night vision is almost non-existant, it won't trigger cameras and is very dark on sc


Nearly all cameras work well in the day. Night vision depends on the type of camera and the technology it is using. For example a CMOS based camera will provide a very poor quality picture in the dark. A CCD Super HAD CCD II will provide a good picture with 0.01 illumination and a EXVie HAD CCD II will provide an even better picture with lux of 0.001. You really need to look at the specifications of the camera before you buy and not go with the "Platinum" or hype keywords used by the manufacturer. I have seen a lot of SWAN Cameras which are basically useless at night.

No night pictures


You cant see infrared flash, but it is not working. The only way to check this is with special equipment. If the unit is new, send it back.

My leupold rcx-1 trail camera will not read the SD card and will not take pictures.


I own 5 of their cameras...what I have to do to get mine to read the sd card is anytime you plug in your controller to the cam start by going to set up camera every time. you don't have to do anything in set up camera just go in and back out and it reads the card. don't get me wrong I have had a lot of problems with them ( I have to use the quarter trick on 2 of them) and have had some other issues but when they work they do pretty good.
