trail cameras... how much noise do they make?

I have a need to monitor some activity that appears to be going on at my cabin.

I wanted to use an infrared trail camera, so that the suspects would not know they had been photographed (otherwise they'd likely smash my camera and/or steal it) :o

So I want something that I can place close (within about 15 yards if possible), but I don't want it to make any noise...

I've never owned one of these cameras, so I don't know if what I'm asking for is too tall an order or not...

Comments appreciated.

Dan

i use spypoint cameras and they dont make any noise but in the dark the infared lights light up when it takes a picture. and whatever you are trying to get a pic of might see it. good luck

There are a few that don't emit any visable light. A buddy of mine has a Reconix like that but they are spendy.

Re: trail cameras... how much noise do they make?

okay... thanks for the info so far. I'm learning already...

I was thinking the IR flashes were not visible... that will foil my plan for sure, if the camera is noticed.

I haven't had anything stolen... just some teenagers (I think) helping themselves to the accommodations, so to speak. :o Fire wood being used... some trash here and there... but if they see the camera take a picture, they'll take the camera for sure I'd say.

These days digital trail cameras are silent. Bushnell makes one that I don't think emits any light at night.

Re: trail cameras... how much noise do they make?

There are a few options, the true black flash shows no light at all that the human eye can see but it seems to have less range, there are mms capable cams now that will send the photo to your pnone or email if there is cell coverage or there are cameras that send the pic to a storage point not far from the camera so you can hide it away from the poin of interest and if they spot the camera there is lillt chance they will even know to look for the stoage let alone find it.
I have 2 Im playing with at the moment.
