Interesting. BSK, can deer pick up a level of infra-red spectrum that humans cannot? Because I could not see any light at all emitting from the led's when I looked at them.


Interesting observation Pastorbmp. You're the first person I've heard say they can't see the flash. To a person, everyone I've talked to that has that camera says they can clearly see the glow from the camera.

Actually, a deer's vision into the red wavelength spectrum (longer wavelengths) disappears before a human's does. Deer cannot see as far into the red spectrum as we can. Now just the opposite is true in the other direction. Deer can see farther into the ultraviolet spectrum (shorter wavelengths) than we can.

Good find and I hope you get pics of some great bucks. I'm betting since you found it in a pawn shop that it may have been a camera that mysteriously disappeared (aka was stold).

Are you saying that no animals were hurt during the making of this production?

I will check this again. I checked it when testing it outside, because I had read numerous times where you said that some of the Black flash were not true black flash. So, I watched this to see if I could see the led flash. Never did. But I am going to test it again.

Try looking at it in a totally dark room, like an interior closet at night. Often, because of trace ambient lighting, I find I can't see a low-glow flash outdoors at night, but I CAN see it in a controlled ultra-dark environment like a closet at night.

Oh, I can't wait for the "coming out of the closet" jokes to start... ;\)

I'm not sure if my wildview black flash is low low or true black flash. Haven't checke it in a dark room. But I just checked the card and had several pics of a big, old doe that hung Round in front of the camera for a while and seemed to be checking it out. I don't know if she saw the glow or smelled my scent but it was just on a travel route with little to no browse and she wasn't there to eat. Seemed she picked it out somehow but wasn't spooked too much.

Yep...you set yourself up with that one!!! LOL! I looked at this outside. I will try checking it out in a dark room. Thanks for the info.

I tried checking it in a dark room and could not see the led's. Now, I recently purchased a Primos Blackout camera. In a dark room I can indeed see the faint, red glow of the led's with that camera.
