Question about Bushnell Velocity Speed Gun

3 Answers

I recently purchased two Bushnell Trophy Cam (Trophy XLT) game cameras. The cameras both seem to be functioning fine other than when they are in video mode at night...i tested the cameras by walking by them after setting them up and was under the impression by the advertising that the LED IR Flash would emit no light after dark.....with both cameras, the LED display lit up as i walked into view. Since placing the cameras, i can see deer at a distance that are clearly dialed in on this new light around the food plot at night. Did i mis understand the capabilities of the camera as it was advertised, or do i have a setting screwed up? I've read the owners manual a couple of times and have found no resolution... thanks for any help.

    just seeking a second opinion here. It seems like Bushnell has been doing false advertising if this expert's feedback is correct????

    Thanks for the clarification here, apparently then, both units perform exactly as they should.

Hi there,

What is meant by "The LED IR Flash would emit no light after dark" is that it will not emit any light when not activated, but when you walk into view it is meant to light up as this how infra-red works.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Hi,
Bushnell Trophy Cam (Trophy XLT) game cameras is not good during night time.The video images are blurry most times.Quicker object speed it causes blur.
The LED IR Flash display will light up always when you will walk by it.The sensor detects the range and when it finds any moving obstacle it take photo and in video mode flash will be ON.You miss understood the capabilities of the camera.

Thank you.

    Hi,
    Without The LED IR Flash display how it is possible to record video in night?It is impossible.It is impossible to record video without LED light,that's the reason the LED stays on during night mode.

    If you feel i am correct vote for me.
    Thank you,

I HAVE A BUSHNELL TROPHY CAMERA, AND ONE OF THE BATTERIES LEAKED. AFTER CLEANING IT UP, IT WILL TURN ON, BUT KEEPS BEEPING AND CYCLING THROUGH THE PROGRAMMING AND WONT LET ME PROGRAM IT.


sounds like you may have scorched the connection and it's bled into the PCB, looks like you may have to get it replaced, if the batteries are at fault as in they should not have leaked then they battey firm will replace the item. check warranty terms on batts and the t/cam.

Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
