Question about Samsung Digimax A50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Problem I was taking a photograph of my CCTV camera with infra red night vision. The screen went blurred and then blank. After a few mins the full picture returned but is now a mirror image and upside down! Do you think the infra red is the cause, or is it just coincidental? Can the problem be rectified? I've tried the reset button but nothing happens.

It isnt the infra red.

on you dvr machine there should be settings or settings on the camera for mirror and flip.

these are features on better cameras and are normally on the camera body, but veiwable on the cctv monitor. they should be menu driven.

I hope this will be of help

If the LEDS are truly for night vision only, then they are most likely Infra-Red types, invisible to the human eye, but visible to camera sensor. A way to test if they are IR and working is to point another digital camera directly at the front of the security camera at night.
The cell phone or webcam sensor will see IR LED's as white spots.
As for this model coming with night vision, I don't know.

hi ,ill be suprised if theres a flash , it should just automaticly switch to night vision using infra red light,, as for PIR,,p.i.r stands for
passive infra red,, its like a beam that when disrupted will switch something on , in your case, "take a shot"the high medium and low just refer to sensitivity,,mouse , cat, dog . elephant ,

I have a sentient cctv dvr from Maplin I can view it on my phone at home which is fine I wanted to know if I can view camera footage when I'm not at home etc. at work


Yes you can definitely view your CCTV footage on your mobile phone at your work via internet. Sentient CCTV DVR basically is a night vision camera. You must know the IP of the camera and IP Video server. Connecting your phone to CCTV camera via the protocol you can view the CCTV footage's in your phone. Night vision cameras are used for surveillance purpose. I would prefer cctv camera with ir illuminator for good image quality in the night time that will clear footage quality in my phone.
Recently many new applications have also being launched by security cameras with a view to solve problem you mentioned.

The voltage should be good. It is possible the Infra-red emitter tube might be at fault.

The night vision can work under a full moon, so test the vision part to make sure it is working correctly. If you have an infra red/IR remote control for your TB set, you can test the might vision using that remote to see if the night vision is working.

You can use a second working unit to see if the illuminator is actually working. The illumination is not visible light without assistance.

I think I answer you question--when?? Take the good CCTV camera and hook it up to monitor. Then hook up the CCTV camera and turn it on. Point the working CCTV camera at the bad camera that is turn on. Now, look at the monitor which is working with your operational camera. Look at the bad camera while it on, and see how many IR LED's you can see on the bad CCTV, while it turn on. You should be able to the IR LED glowing red. If not, then there is a problem with bad CCTV IR LED's. Short wire, no power to the IR LED's. stewbison

Hi im using Canon ixus 95 IS. How do i use it to take photos in the dark room or at night? Can i use it to take clear photos in the dark room?


Simple check - point any old Infra-red remote control at the camera. If you see a blue flash from the transmitting end of the remote wand, chances are you may be able to equip and use an infra-red illumination lamp. If there is a tripod mounting hole in the bottom of the camera, you may be able to find a packaged illuminator with bracket and compatible tripod screw post to make the camera an all in one, single handed device.

Many cameras are sensitive to near~ middle infra-red but incorporate a "hot filter" to mitigate the effects. Daytime exposures outdoors are FULL of infra-red background radiation that can upset the color balance of the photograph captured. Using an illuminator "saturates" the hot filter and the area in front of the camera, giving it a little help to "see" clearly in a low-light situation.
