    What brand of sd card are you using? I know the PNY brand will drain batteries. Here are the steps to reset the camera:

    turn camera off. remove batteries and sd card. turn camera to the ON position (even though there are no batteries). Leave for 10 min. turn off and replace batteries. **Sandisk and Lexar brand sd cards work best for Moultrie cameras

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.

My pictures at night are nothing but a black picture


HARD RESET TAKE OUT BATTERIES AND SD CARD, TURN IT TO THE ON POSITION FOR ABOUT 2-3 MINUTES WITH NOTHING IN IT. AFTER 2-3 MIN PUT BATTERIES BACK IN WHILE WITH THE ON POSITION IT SHOULD SAY NO CARD. ONCE IT SAYS THAT TURN OFF THE CAMERA PUT THE SD CARD BACK IN TURN THE CAMERA BACK ON AND TEST IN THE DARK. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK SEND IT IN FOR REPAIRS TO MOULTRIE.

Blurry Photos & Batteries Exhausted


I may be able to help with the battery problem. Two suggestions: 1) With a WHITE eraser (preferably at the end of a pencil) rub the metal tabs in the camera that makes contact with the batteries. They may be slightly corroded. DON'T use a pink eraser. A fine sandpaper will also work, but is more difficult to work with inside a small space. 2) The metal tabs may be pushed in too far. You may need to pry them out with a small flat-head screw driver or needle nose pliers. Do so gently.

Wont turn on


My camera worked fine last night while I was taking pictures, however, I couldn't get it to power up today so that I could upload my pictures. I spent half the day recharging batteries, buying new batteries, and searching the Internet for solutions.

It turns out that I just needed to switch the batteries around. The positive and negative battery chambers are mislabeled in my camera. Duh! Works fine now.
Hope this helps someone.

A bit late, but hey, better late than never, right?
I had exactly the same problem. Turned out it was my batteries!
When I use Philips Powerlife batteries I experience no problems whatsoever. Any other batteries don't seem to work as well. Apparently there are differences between the various AA-type batteries.

Lemme know if that solved your problem, please. t u r r e b o a t g m a i l d o t c o m

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption


I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.
