Technical Details


Product Description

This is the compact digital camera that takes pictures in complete darkness as easily as it shoots full-color shots in daylight. The 5 MP image sensor captures images at 2,560 x 1,920 pixel resolution and video at 640 x 480, assisted by its 8X digital zoom. Its infrared sensor captures monochrome images in the dark from nine feet away; no flash is given off during nighttime shots, ensuring that pictures taken won't startle nocturnal creatures. Images are displayed on its 3" LCD and stored onto an SD card (up to 8 GB); a 4GB SD card holds up to 2,500 images or 75 minutes of video. Rechargeable lithium battery provides power for up to 500 shots from a 5-hour charge.

I asked for this camera for Christmas based of the first two positive reviews. That was a mistake. I really wanted this camera, and I really wanted this camera to be awesome, but it falls drastically short. I'll post both day and night photos which show the cameras shortcomings and more details below.

Build:
The camera feels cheap (which it is), but more like a toy than an inexpensive point and shoot. The body is entirely plastic, there is no cover for the lens, and the buttons are tiny and difficult to distinguish. On the positive side, the viewing screen isn't bad and it has a mount for a tripod built in.

Interface:
The interface is just painful. The camera beeps with ever action and I cannot find a way to shut off the sound. The instruction manual is a single page (front and back) and makes no mention of the beeping. There is no quick way to change exposure and one must dive into the menu to change anything but the zoom.

Picture quality:
I could have easily overlooked any issues with build and interface if this at least turned out some decent photos, but it does not. During the day, in standard (non-night vision) mode, photographs look no better than those taken on a cell phone from several years ago. Using night vision mode during the daylight does provide some interesting colors, but nothing beautiful or even impressive. Photographs look like an overexposed black-and-white image, nothing more. In the dark, the IR illuminator is placed so close to the lens than it interferes with focusing. I've only managed one shot out of twenty where the camera actually focused on the subject.

In summary, this is a great concept in a poorly executed package. Save your money and wait for something better to come out.

I put this on my Amazon wish list and was excited to get a night vision camera. I tried to take a few pictures with it in dark and they turned out pitch black. DIdnt detect ANYTHING. Took pictures in partial light... still crappy. Then went outside and took pictures in natural light and it was horrible. I even turned up the picture settings for more pixels and better quality. Didnt help at all. :/

The video setting was just as bad. Unfocused and grainy.

Needless to say I was very dissapointed with the camera and so was my boyfriend who bought for me. I will be returning it PROMPTLY.

I recently purchased the Magpix IR camera and just think it's the coolest thing. I'm a runner and recently ran in a 24 hour relay race and my team documented our progress using my new camera. During the day we took pictures like any standard camera but at night, on pitch black roads, we were able to take pictures of our runners where no other team could. Needless to say the whole team, which included 12 of us, just thought this ability was priceless and to be able to keep those memories really means a lot.

I would recommend this camera to anyone. The pictures come out super clear and the added night vision feature separates itself from other cameras out there. I just wish they made camera's like this years ago. I would have so many more pictures to put on my wall.

It took interesting photos but after sitting in the drawer the battery died and will not recharge. You can use photo editing software for the same effect.
