Don't think O would not like to answer this one, but now I have to do some guessing. Is my guess wrong, perhaps the answer is worthless.
I guess you are using a game / spy camera, with infra red LED's. And because the camera is slightly pointed down, you see the light (your eyes can't see this) as a bundle going forward. I think you should choose another (lower) point and put the camera slightly up. Or like most of the time, to spot lagger animals in the dark the camera is somewhat higher and pointing straight forward.
It would make the camera very expensive when they had to make a correct reflector for a much wider bundle of IR light.

I hope this helps.

My Moultier A-50 recently stopped showing color on daytime pictures. Night time pics are still fine.

Check your settings for "white balance", and also make sure you are in "auto" mode.

My digital camera has some problems in daytime the pictures taken were blurred but at nighttime the pictures were pretty ...

You have to ensure that the camera is not set to night mode as this can affect the quality of the pictures you take during day time.
De-activating the night mode will allow it take normal pictures during daytime.

Well the conditions exceed the camera's ability. I suggest that you call Samsung and see if they have the solution. A filter lense may help during the day, but hinder after dark...

White pictures, low battery life, few pictures

I glued a small peice of plastic under the flash and above the camera lens to shade it from the flash when it goes off. I then only had 2 pictures out of 40 that showed a white picture. The plastic peice only sticks out about 1 inch and didn't affect the flash on the subject. I also drilled holes in the bottom and hooked up a 6 volt tractor battery to it this gave me over 1 month of battery life with another identical camera
