    yes they do the normal red led`s or this one with the low glow blackout ones that cant be seen lighting up indicating where the camera is.
    but looking through any night vision device they show up like a floodlight....lol

    I just got one and experimenting with it, got a hind the other night and it jumped back from the camera, either the camera made a noise or the infra red blue leds gave it away, was a bit dissapointed as its supposed to be a stealth cam, got it out where i feed deer and black cock tonight so here's hoping.

    I've been reading up a bit on trail cameras as I always fancy one but will never spend the cash. From what I can gather most have LEDs that produce some sort of low level read glow when they take a picture. We must also consider that we may not know much about deer vision and so what might appear as a low red glow to us might appear like a big flash to a deer, or at least appear somewhat brighter than what we see.

    Reconyx are often said to produce the best trail cameras and they do a camera that claims to be "no glow" but it is rather expensive to say the least. They do a "no glow" model designed for deer and the like:

    Reconyx also do a camera designed for watching humans in the dark and maybe this might fit your requirements:

    One other option that might be worth considering is that the Moultrie M100 gets a very good reputation for taking relatively long range photos in the dark, up to about 30 yards, and so it might be possible to place such a camera at a greater distance from the area you are watching thereby reducing any chances of a deer, or a person as seems to be your priority, spotting the glow from the LED. If you were to place such a camera out of the normal eyeline and a goodly distance from the target then it might do your job, there is a review here:

    i have never heard them make a noise while the shutter opens but some animals do react but some dont, these deer were there for over 20 mins being filmed every 30 seconds for a period of 35 seconds and they arnt bothered ay all...
