Ok well first off I know this is a cheap camera. That aside I did intended in it working properly. I have thrown Away the box that it came in but looked up what model it closest resembled at fleet farm and it came out to be the blade 6x 6Mp lights out model. So, the problem. Well I received this as a Christmas present last year and intended on placing it out in the woods to check and see what we have for local deer on our property. I had put it out there and immediately was shocked at how clear the day time pictures were even though I had it set at mid quality. The problem was once I scrolled through the first 3 I came upon a night picture which was totally black. It stated it was taken at 4:03 am 3 pictures were taken that night all about 6 min apart so something was obviously there. The same thing happened the next few times I checked it when it was at night and was thinking it was a fluke deal and I was gonna go out there for myself at night and walk in front of it. I saw the red indication light flash 3 times turn to green showing it had successfully took a picture but there was no flash at all from the camera. The things was though I went to check the camera same thing pure black. I kept moving closer and closer and it finally picked me up at like 2 feet away to where I could see it In pure darkness but look at it in light and you couldn't see it. Over the course of half a year or so I have had multiple " pure black photos" and only a few where a curious deer stuck there face in the camera and you would see an ear or eye. So, what I'm getting at is, do these cameras have a setting to intensify the flash setting? Or is this normal night time ability for this camera? Also, I was stupid enough to throw the manual once I got it set up and can not figure out if I can change the flash setting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
