SOURCE: light meter

Yes, the Pentax ME Super has a built-in light meter. It is used by the ME Super in order to determine the correct exposure settings when the camera is used in the "A" (Autoexposure) & "AV" (Aperture-priority) exposure modes.

I don't mean to insult you, but have you tried new batteries?

Sometimes the meter fails when the batteries don't have enough juice.

Take care & Happy Imaging!

SOURCE: Night owl camera system the picture is very grainy. How do I fix?

At night this is common. You did not say what time of day. The LUX rating is something to consider. When it gets dark there is an amplifier present that boosts the signal, what you are seeing is noise that is common to video signals when the amp has low signal level in the camera sensor. The only way around that is to use bright light.

2 of my 4 night owl cameras are blurry and do not have a clear picture

My guess... Daytime is fine... night time is the problem...??

So without anymore system details I'm assuming your CLEAR cameras are in a protected location... from minor fog to a wee bit of moisture in the air which will reflect (glare) back into your UNCLEAR camera's picture.

Although you CANNOT SEE the infrared light... the camera sees it much the same as having your HIGH-BEAM headlights GLARE in the fog.

To prove it you need only change your clear cameras with your

Additionally you will find spiders think these lights are a great place to put up their webs...

My solution was to get INDEPENDENT (IR) LIGHT sources and to disable the lights inside the camera.

Ultimately I replaced the cameras with the HD/PTZ cameras that work in low light and infrared.


You could just put up BRIGHT motion lights... and clean the spider webs off your cameras... (I did it for years!)

New cameras work BUT I have no night coverage on the cameras and wonderful day pictures.

You don't want to let more light in the hole if you want it to work at night. Plug one of the cameras that work at night into the plug of one of the cameras that don't work at night and see what happens, if the problem moves with the camera then it is a bad camera or the wrong model for your system.

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.

I have a Swann security system day/night vision cameras and the night vision has gone out on 2 of them and the system is less than a year old? Can any one help. Can these be fixed?

Check the power supply (usually 12VDC) and its connections. Lack of power for to LED's will cause the night vision feature to cease to function.

It doesn't take all the pictures at night, i get some, maybe 1 or 2 then it skips and might take 1 more. takes great daytime photos. is there anything that can be done to fix it?

Hi mmcgee6,

You need to check the settings in the camera , as to whether it's selected on night mode or not , when you use the camera at night , and particularly if the light is not as bright as day light.

There should not be any problem with the night shoots from the camera if there is no problem in the day , it's just the settings that needs to be changed to night mode.

Also a good idea would be to set the flash settings on Auto instead of Off , or other settings , this will adjust the camera as per the environment in which you are clicking your pictures.

Hope this helps ....:)

The camera still works but when its dark in the room nothing shows on the monitor. If we turn the light on it works. It seems like the night vision feature is broken. I covered what looked like the light...

  1. It should go to automatic night vision. If this feature is not working then the answer to will a flashlight work the answer is not very well. The light will have to be on the child and a flashlight does not have much light behind it. Perhaps if you put a small lamp on a dresser that shines on the area the child is, this may work enough to keep an eye on him/her. A flashlight not so much. Hope this helps.

I have been playing around with UV but have not found one the works. except years ago I found that the cameras that were now available on cell phones was a great way to see if your TV remote was working,
so you can use this feature on your phone to help you find the light thats not visible to the eye but your camera will dig it

The lens opens and makes a ticking sound but light stay orange

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!
