Bushnell Camera new
      #5851703 - 05/10/13 10:19 AM

Saw a Bushnell Camera on Optics planet that said it would take pics in the day or night. The chip would work almost into the infrared (in fact, it had infrared lights on the front of the camera). Says for taking low-light pics (i.e. candlelit room)and night photograpy (i.e. birding, deer). Any idea if this would work for AP?, I've got my doubts, but don't know enoough about cameras. I imagine I'll end up with a Canon, but saw this and it piqued my interest..

It is a "make believe" low light (webcam class CMOS) camera but performs very poorly under the real low light in AP. It is using IR LEDs to illuminate the target to obtain images.

Night vision and AP are two different things; definitely NOT an AP camera.

Get one of these instead...

On a side note, daytime IR is another subject, some info here...
