Just got a Little Acorn trail cam 6210MC (940nm) but intitial tests of it not as good as I thought. I placed the camera in two locations over 8 days and it seems to take great pictures in the day but at night it is very poor. In one location , which I know is packed with Sika I have have only had two photos of a fox in the night and the photos are of a very poor quality (very grainy) and flash illumination dire. Has anyone had experience with this model camera or had any experince with the version above which is infra red? My understanding is that you shouldnt be able to see the infra red when it fires but is this correct as I dont want the locals to see it when it fires.
or can anyone recommend a camera that wont cost the earth that does as it should?
