    I have the same deer cam system. In mine it has a small 'phone' cord comming out of the camera that plugs into the electronics in the box. (IR sensor, Etc) I have the manual for operating the system but it has nothing about the Camera but that is pretty strait forward, you can contact me if you have some questions and I'll try to help you out. One problem I have is that the Batteries in the Cam get too cold and stop working. The area in front of my cam was really torn up by deer and rabbits but no pics! It was too cold I guess, worked fine when I brought it in and warmed up.

I think you may have a hard time getting a manual for it - it was an Eastern European (ex-communist bloc) product and there don't seem to be too many of them even in that area any more. Sorry that's not very helpful :{

Will using a SD card from another camera mess up my Canon? Seems ever since I borrowed a SD card my camera has been totally messed up.

As long as it is the right card for your camera you shouldn't have a problem. Try removing it and installing a smaller card, (make sure you power down the Camera 1st).

My canon 500d camira the auto focus has failed and there is3 years waranty canon service responsible to this problem

If the camera is still under warranty, I would think Canon would be responsible yes. But only if you registered your camera by serial umber on Canons website. Best bet is to Google Canons customer service and either call, E mail or write them.

My autofocus on my canon 500d camera is not working properly. I find i have to switch to manual focus to take the pictures, even in all the atoumatic settings. I have only noticed this problem occurring in...

All auto focus cameras use contrast to focus so if you are attempting to focus on glass, chrome, blank sky, large body of water, painted wall, mirror, or any other low contrast subject the auto focus will fail. Another place auto focus will fail is when you are to close to your subject you my not be physically to close but have used the zoom to give a closer shot.

Hi... I have Canon 500D DSLR...While shotting in video mode 640+480 i got flash automatically. Is it possible to get flash while shooting in video mode.Please help

No camera flash can operate in video mode. It would have to flash 15 or 30 times a second. It takes longer than a second for the flash circuitry to charge up each time.

You can get a separate lighting unit for video which provides constant illumination. This does not require any connection to the camera, it just provides light, and the camera will adjust exposure automatically as usual.

If I buy a Canon EOS 500D body wil my 500n AF lens fit it and operate OK?

All canon EF and EF-S lenses work with 500D /T1i model.(yes all)
If your lens is removed from old 500N body and if it has EF marked it will work for every Digital camera model of canon.
Note: its focal length will be multiplied by 1.6 X factor.
(mean 18 mm lens will become 29mm approx.)
If you find this of help rate me.
