2011 WGI N6 (red 6) Camera Review - September 3, 2011
2011 WGI N6
2011 WGI N6 (red6) 36 count red flash 6 MP
This is one more in the series we have to do a review on. What is
different is that this is a very late arrival
and should be one of the cameras that have the
upgrade to adjust the light metering in order to
prevent whiteout issues.
The description is the same as the others in this line except for the IR
size and the MP rating. The delay is down to 15
seconds (20.3 actual) and has 30S, 1, 2, 5, 30
minutes above that. Trigger time is 1.09 without
flash and 1.25 with flash. Initial picture
quality showed the array is very strong and
close in subjects are washed out. Day with color
is very good and sharp. Sensing seemed to be a
little weak but we are dealing with some very
hot days so we will wait for the night range
testing to determine that.
The gist of doing this review is to see if we now are going to have the
white out issue as we have seen on the other
early released cameras. This is going to be a
really short review but we will still gather all
the sample pictures and videos to ensure that
any short comings are found.
We gathered the trigger times which came out to
be day 1.09 seconds and night with flash 1.25
seconds. The day range came out pretty sharp and
clear. We have not yet done the night range test
or the sensing test. We however have gathered
sample pictures and they are posted.
Please view the sample pictures and see that the
day pictures are good and clear and have good
color. The video samples have a strange
happening. The lead off photo to give date time
is IR yet the video is color and dark. We are
still looking at this to see if the canopy is
The night pictures showed that the flash is a
little weak but the picture quality is above
average. We did get a bit of motion blur also.
Over all the camera has worked well and has not
produced any white pictures but we did get some
dark evening pictures that were still very
We only have the battery life to do so we will
close this review until that data is available.
This camera took 2211 photos and 6 video clips
over a 7 week period.
