The flash on your camera only reaches out about 5 feet. So, you either must get real close, or set up an external light. Without knowing which camera you are using it is impossible to advise any setting possiblities.

What settings to use for waterfalls and rapids to get the soft smooth look?


You want a slow shutter speed, 1/8 second or slower. Set the camera to Aperture priority, set the ISO as low as you can, and set the aperture as small as possible (largest f/number). Avoid shooting in broad daylight (try for dawn/dusk or an overcast day). If you have a polarizer or neutral density filter, use it/them.

Also, forget about handholding the camera. Use a tripod if available, a flat rock or other stable surface otherwise.

Photo cell timer only stays on for a few minutes


Try it on another outlet, like in a dark bedroom without GFCI.
Buy another outdoor dawn-dusk timer.
Timers can be damaged by simple power outage, when power resumes there is a surge.
Timers stop working because the photo eye goes bad, or tiny 555 chip goes bad, etc.

Can I use outdoor timer indoors.Its a dusk to dawn timer but no lights will be on


If outdoor timer is programmable, and does not turn ON automatically at dusk, then timer can be used indoors.
If outdoor timer is activated by photo eye, and turns ON automatically at dusk, then it cannot be used indoors, because the timer turns ON when it senses darkness.

I baught a 3-outlet timer yardstake #15137. why does it blink on all settings except the on at all times?


Your yardstake timer has photo-eye that automatically turns lights on at dusk.
And then lights remain ON until set-time expires, or dawn arrives.
Timer automatically turns off at dawn, no matter which setting, unless timer dial set to ON
Photo-eye has to be turned away from outdoor lights or lights will blink.
That's because outdoor lights cause photo=eye to sense it's dawn, and timer turns OFF >>> a moment later photo-eye senses it's dark, and turns lights ON again.
Thus the timer turns ON-OFF.
Test this by putting black tape over photo-eye, or turning timer toward dark area. Timer should turn ON and follow set-time on dial.

Will the HB51R have to be placed outside to work on dusk to dawn.


The dawn to dusk feature is activated by photoelectric eye that senses when it gets dark.
If you put timer in a dark room, it will turn ON ... let's say to operate Christmas tree after you leave a room for the evening.
But if room stays dark, the timer will not sense when to turn off unless you also set timer to turn off 1-9 hours after ON.
That being said, a Christmas tree might make too much light for the timer's photoelectric eye.
Make sure photoelectric eye is turned away from direct light.

Looks like my Night Owl NOCB4 Night Vision binoculars have an intensifier tube out. Where can I have it replaced. Night Owl says they don't carry the part anymore.


Hello, Now, Night Owl Optics in El Paso, TX will repair your NV binoculars for a prices. This is what Night Owl will do for you. They don't have the parts to fix your Night Owl binoculars. They never have had parts to fix a lot of there products that they sell because the majority of them were manufactured in Russia and I really mean the whole thing. I could fix it for you but since I am on fixya.com I can used this web site for advertising my skills. Sorry.

Here what you can do, go to eBay then to search categories---sporting goods----outdoor sports----hunting----scopes, optics, lasers------night vision optics. Any of the monocular that are: Famous Trail, Night Owl Optics, Ziteh, Klanakia, Night Vision, Opel, ATN, or any of them that looks the same but with different names on them they are all manufactured in Russia. Russian has probably 15 companies that manufacture night vision devises and or parts there of. Some of these devise are good and majority are cheap but sold here in the US at a much high price. Don't pay over $50 for one plus shipping.

Buddy, this just about all I can do four. GB....stewbison
