Don't want night pictures

I am getting a Browning Pro trail cam for Christmas. I picked this model because I want good pictures to use for my art. That being said, I don't want any night photos or videos.

This is my first trail cam so I am a novice. Is there a way to prevent a trail cam from taking night images? Can I cover some sensors to do this?

I am guessing probably not. The sensor is a motion sensor and it will cause it to not take any during the also. I assume you do not want black and white type photos which are the norm for night pictures. They do have cameras that take full color photos at night using a white flash.

Other than turning the cameras off before dark, I doubt it.

Yeah well then if you use a big enough card you get a whole bunch of pictures day and night then delete the ones you don't want. Just like every other fella with a trail camera.

Most cameras I have had you can set it for day or night or both, scroll thru the menu. If all else fails read the instructions. You may want to reconsider. Some of the best pictures I have are night pics. Even got a fisher on camera for the first time,at night

I don't know a thing about trail cameras, but it hard to believe in this day and age that you can't program them to do as said above.

The only way to get day only shots on brownings is if you have timelapse mode which does not use the motion sensor. I own browning, moultrie and bushnell cams and none of them ever really gave me the option of setting motion detected photos on or off for day or night.

With the battery life and big SD memory cards, other than having to delete them, I don't think it would cause much of an issue for you. I do think there are some cameras that have that option. I get 6+ months of battery life on my browning cameras with thousands and thousands of pics.
