Is it posssible to change the regular flash on a game trail camera to infrared? Answered

I have several older game trail cameras that have a bright flash. The newer cameras have infrared flash and do not scare animals like the regular flash.

Do your cameras have removable flash units, or are they built in? If you can unplug and replace the flash, then Google Is Your Friend.

If the flash is built in (like on a cheap point-and-shoot :-), then you get to take your camera apart. Use Google to look for "infrared flash bulbs" or "infrared LED", and do a component swap. That's something that several of the electronics experts around here could give you pointers about.

Thank you for the info. I want to get as much use from the group of cameras I have. Could I possibly use some type of filter?
