Q: Still Photo and/or Video Quality Problems

A: Night photos or videos appear too dark

  • Check the battery indicator icon to see if battery power is full. The flash will stop operating near the end of the battery life.
  • You will get the best results when the subject is within the ideal flash range, no farther than 45’ (14m) from the camera. Subjects may appear too dark at greater distances.
  • Please note that when the Capture Number parameter is set higher than “1 Photo”, or with very short Interval settings, some images may appear darker than others due to the quick response and rapid retriggering of the camera, allowing less time for the flash to fully recharge before firing again.
Daytime photos or videos appear too dark
  • Make sure that the camera is not aimed at the sun or other light sources during the day, as this may cause the auto exposure to produce darker results.
Night photos or videos appear too bright
  • You will get the best results when the subject is within the ideal flash range, no closer than 10’ (3m) from the camera. Subjects may appear too light at closer distances.
Daytime photos or videos appear too bright
  • Make sure that the camera is not aimed at the sun or other light sources during the day.
Photos with streaked subject
  • In some cases with low lighting conditions and fast moving subjects, the 5MP or 8MP resolution settings may not perform as well as the 3MP setting.
  • If you have multiple images where fast moving subjects produce streaks on the photo, try the 3MP setting instead.
Red , green or blue color cast
  • Under certain lighting conditions, the sensor can become confused resulting in poor color images.
  • If this is seen on a consistent basis, then the sensor may need servicing. Please contact Bushnell customer service.
Short video clips—not recording to the length set
  • Check to make sure that the SD card is not full.
  • Make sure that the camera has good batteries in it. Near the end of the battery life, the camera may choose to record shorter video clips to conserve power.
