Yes, but does depend on how you set it up; motion sensing and intervals. If all else fails, set it to time lapse, 1 second intervals, and you will find your critter. Also, consider an infra red light to brighten the area in which the camera is recording. Finally, I suspect bats. Hard to find and noisy at night. Worse in the winter. Sorry about that. Let the bats be - not harmful and are a declining species which eats an enormous number of insects.

What features should one look for while purchasing a trail camera?

he features should one look for while purchasing a trail camera -
1. Picture Quality
Picture quality doesn't just involve the number of megapixels that a camera has, this metric also takes into consideration the clarity of the picture, the color composition and how it contrasts the subject with the foreground and the background.
Resolution is measured by megapixels and the notion that the higher the megapixels count the better the quality is a false notion that marketers use to make customers think otherwise. The resolution works together with the other features to give the best image the camera can capture.
Checking trail camera picture quality involves looking at the picture online and comparing them. Outdoor shops also have units available for testing that customers can take sample pictures with to judge the quality of the picture.

2. Night Mode
Probably the most important feature in a trail camera, the ability to record and capture images at night is what gives trail cameras the edge when it comes to tracking. The perfect trail camera should have either infrared or black LED flash. The bulb-type camera flash can scare wildlife away when it takes pictures at night. Game especially nocturnal ones are sensitive to sudden bursts of light and, as a result, they will scatter and probably never go back to where the trail camera is.
It is understandable that night pictures would have significantly less quality in the images it captures but the photos should still be crisp and clear within the acceptable range. Some cameras can eliminate red-eye from the subject but this is an optional feature.

3. Video quality
Videos are a newly added feature to trail cameras and most of them would have the option to select the length of the video. Others would also include the option to go HD or VGA with their recordings. Check the quality of the video in both day and night modes, the video playback should be clear and blur-free.

4.Time Lapse
Time lapse videos are taken even when the sensors are not triggered and the output would be a video of the landscape but at a higher speed setting. For example, the camera would record for 8 hours but the resulting time lapse video would only be about 10 seconds. This is an optional feature for hunters are they are more focuses on the hunt rather than playing with video effects.

5. Power Consumption
Almost all trail cameras run on 8 AA batteries but not all of them would have the same consumption rating. Some would have a power saving feature while some would have many features that would use up the juice on the batteries at a faster rate. Ideally, fresh batteries should be able to take about 16,000 pictures before draining out.

6. Memory
Most trail cameras would have built-in memory already, however small, but the unit itself should be able to support at least a 32GB SD Card. The external SD card has the advantage over the internal memory especially when downloading the captured images. SD Cards can simply be removed from the device and plugged into a computer whereas an internal memory camera would require removing it from the mount, and storage unit, and then plugging it in which translates to time and effort lost
7. Detection Circuit
The Detection Circuit is what detects game passing in from of the camera and is also the same mechanism that takes the picture or video and records it. Here are its components:

Trigger Time - once a wild animal enters into the detection zone, the amount of time used to snap the picture is called Trigger Time.

Recovery Time - after a camera triggers the lens and memory would need some time to store the recently captured picture and prepare for the next one, this is called Recovery time.

Sensors - these are what detects game in front of the camera and gives the signal to the mechanism to take the picture. Trail cameras often use infrared sensors.

Detection Zone - this is the maximum range that the sensors can detect movement. This also correlates to the effective distance of the camera lens.

Simply put, the detection circuit is the trail camera and the faster the trigger and recovery time the better. A wider detection zone would also be ideal for a trail camera.

8. Advanced Features
Higher end models have some advanced features that can include:

Remote Access - this provides hunters the ability to check on the images captured at the comfort of their homes, camps or offices.

Viewfinder - this is slowly becoming a standard among trail cameras. This allows the hunter to view images and videos without connecting the unit to a computer. This also acts as the menu screen for the unit.

9. Price
Each year the price of parts go down as components get smaller and easier to manufacture and this also brings down the standard price of new trail cameras. Nowadays, it is not unheard of to have a good quality camera to be priced at less than $200.

10. Brand Recognition
There are many brands to choose from with the same features but read about customer feedback and see which brand brings in more customer loyalty than others. This is indicative of a good quality product.

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.

Wildgame Innovations Model# N4 infrared digital game camera when I turn it on it says LOCKED, how do I unlock it?

It's not the camera but the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Moultrie game camera flash will not work. All bulbs light up red but every night picture is so dark

Try doing a hard reset, Turn camera off remove battery's and sd card. With everything out. Push on/off for about 5 sec. Put good battery's in ig. If you using cheap battery's make sure your are using Duracell or Engerzier battery's not rechargeable. Also make sure not using a micro sd card and nothing higher than a class 4 which is the speed of the card not the size. If still need help call with equipment to troubleshoot to Moultire 800653334 option 1 and 1 for a live person.

I need the easy share c613 to take pictures in 680 x 460 size. Will it do it?

No. The smallest pictures the C613 will capture is 1.2 MP, not the 0.3 MP you're asking for. To change the image size, press the MENU button then use up/down to select "Picture Size."

The camera is not megabytes (MB) but megapixel (MP), there is a big difference. If you multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution then that will be how many megapixels are being captured. So in this case, max resolution 2048 x 1536 = 3145728 which is 3.1 MP effective. I don't think any camera actually captures exactly the full MP listed on the camera. Now, if each pixel was represented by a byte then you would have 3.1 MegaByte picture captured. However, each pixel is represented by I think 3 bytes which would give you a 9.3 Megabyte picture captured. However, since this is usually to large for most users to deal with, compression is introduced thus the settings for fine and standard. The tiff picture type is the 9.3 Megabyte photo with no compression. For most of us this isn't very effective for working with so we use the jpg compression. This reduces the picture to a more manageable size for saving, manipulation and storing. Keep in mind that this is what is called a 'lossy' compression which means that it actually removes pixels from the photograph and uses a technique called interpolation to bring the pixels back later.
