White outs

How do you avoid or limit white outs with IR cams? both of mine are producing many WO pics.. mostly in the morning.. 630am 900 am I know hot humid days cause them . I have my sensitivity set to the lowest.. . facing away from sun...not sure what more i can do Any tips? Thanks

Cams are SCO 500 and Bushnell Trophy..

Don't know. I'm having the same problem with my Moultrie M80. Same here, facing away from the sun.

Re: White outs

ok well that's one good thing about flash cam you never have that.. I jump on the IR, spook deer, cam location give away board.. guess I'll buy a flash cam for summer pictures...

Re: White outs

Just a suggestion: test your batteries with a digital meter. Any battery reading 1.0 to 1.2 volt can cause a camera to malfunction or not work at all. Even new batteries fresh out of the package may have a faulty one.
If the camera is in a darker or shaded area, it may take longer to recognize the change from night to day. Your camera manufacture may also have a software update if this happens to be a major problem with that series of camera. Good luck.

between pillow and the intersection of 225 and 147.
I'd imagine you know where the roller skating rink is near Line Mountain High School. I live right there.
