The better digital game cameras give better and more accurate results as far as pinpointing, identifying and tracking game are concerned. Night vision allows hunters to detect and follow animals even during night. This visual mode is also applicable during the day. In the traditional binocular mode, the instances of wrong alarms are predominant and hunters go into alert only to discover that there was no reason for that. Disturbances in the greenery can be caused by strong gusts of wind or twigs and fruits falling down from trees. Additionally smaller animals that the hunter is not interested in can do the same.
But for scouting activities, that same functionality can be interesting for getting candid pictures of animals
These cameras work for security and photography as well
Digital game cameras may also be used for surveillance. If permanently installed on the wall, they can be made to monitor the perimeter of the property for the whole day. Besides its use for security, these cameras are useful for nature enthusiasts who take pictures of wildlife. They can choose to render their pictures in daytime or nighttime vision. Things which are not distinguished by the eye during night can be recognizable in infra-red photographs.
Using infra-red light it is possible to take photos of wildlife at night. Animals cannot detect the dim light of infra-red. However, the images produced by nighttime vision photography are clear enough to discern details of the environment. Of course, a secondary light source may be required for clear nighttime pictures. But even this auxiliary source is invisible to most wildlife.
The fact that animals are unaware of infra-red light makes it take pictures of them at night.
