Infrared game camera no Flash

incandescent camera shotFor hunters and wildlife aficionados, its watching the animal/prey in its full glory that makes the day. Unfortunately, one can’t be always in the woods lying low for an unsuspecting game to pass by and that is where game cameras come into the picture. They take pictures at regular intervals or using sensors. Wildlife lovers can enjoy these pictures while trail hunters can make use of the data collected by the camera to track their prey. The biggest question for anyone interested in such a camera is what works best? Is it the infrared variety or the incandescent cameras?

Incandescent Cameras

The word incandescent basically means a normal flash bulb camera that flashes a bright light to capture images in full color with stunning clarity and brightness. Naturally, this kind of a camera is easy to spot by both humans and animals so expect a few spooked shots and scared games that never return to the same spot again. On the other hand their full color night shot makes them an ideal choice for naturalists who are only interested in clicking away pictures even when they can’t be physically present nearby. Many wildlife photographers prefer this type of a camera for its stunning full-color visuals.

The pros of an incandescent camera are naturally….

  • Quite inexpensive as they use crude flash and shutter technology to capture night images.
  • Day Time shots are visibly more stunning thanks to its slower shutter speeds and wider apertures.
  • Every night shot is in full contrast, color and vibrant.
  • Provides stunningly high resolution for those who want clarity.

  • Less battery life as incandescent flash uses more energy.
  • Cannot record videos at night.
  • Spooks game and deters animals from entering the camera fitted zone.
  • Trigger is much slower and so can capture half shots or unfocused pictures of scared animals trying to skitter away.
  • Draws the attention of pawing thieves.

Infrared Cameras

The only difference between incandescent cameras and infrared ones is that the latter uses infrared light to take pictures. These flashes are invisible to the naked eye and animals seldom are aware of its existence. Most infrared game cams also allow video recording at night, which is possibly the biggest advantage of such cams. On the flipside, color pictures are available only in day time while night time pictures are monochromatic contrasts. Naturally, this kind of a camera is not something a naturalist or animal lover would want but its definitely what a hunter wants. You do not want to spook animals making forays into your territory if you plan on trailing them.

I recently bought an older G4 powermac for $200.
I was tired of all the Ms bullshit. It was easy, I love the Mac, although it does seem a little slower.
I have Mozilla, Open Office, Flash, Windows Media Player. AIM, and any other program you could hope for.
There is nothing I cant do now, except play a few games (But that is why I have Xbox 360)
I have been using PC's since the 286 days. I will Never buy a MS/PC again. I will put up with a few headaches to know that my computer will do ONLY what I want, when I want, and not submit ANYTHING behind my back.

So you're using Ubuntu? i know its kinda hard to get 3-d rendering and what not, but if you're kinda new to Ubuntu, go to and it'll show the basics on how to get started with running applications, playing music files, playing video, burning cd's, etc.. it's also good with instructions such as installing java, flash player, etc... also go to add/remove packages, go to games, and there's a whole bunch of free games you can download and run straight from Ubuntu without having to install plug ins like flashplayer.

Especially with office documents. People could give a rats ass about Windows itself, but they still need Excel and Word for work. Pull out that, things will change a little. What I can see happening, or is happening a little with the netbooks, is people start using Linux or BSD without knowing it. They'll have a computer with point and click, a web browser, flash, movie player, music player, some simple games and productivity software, but won't know what the heck it is, anymore than they know what runs on their dvd player. How many OS X users know what BSD is? Maybe in 10, 15 years, yo

I know aol sucks

Its free and I still use it as a browser sometimes. I use the chat rooms and have some favorites saved. Anyways, my pc crashed a week ago and I had someone come by to fix it. He said I might need a new hd, but he managed to get me back and running.
But now when I am on aol, I cant see any video(youtube), and I cant play any of those aol games.
I believe I need Adobe flash player?? or javascript??
When I go to "add or remove programs" I see that I have some of those versions there.
And when I am using firefox I can see videos and all works well

My twin brother bought a new tower this weekend. We usually play backgammon with Yahoo Messenger. For some reason this won't load for him. We have installed the media flash player--it states successful download, but still not playing. I had him to try and download Java and it won't let him download this.
He is able to use all the features of Yahoo messenger--that we know of--except for games. At the Yahoo site the games platform won't load either.
We have set enabled his cookies and security preference to medium-high.
He was able to successfully download yahoo messenger and the media flash player
