How to Check Pictures on a Digital Stealth Cam

The Digital Stealth Cam is a camera used by hunters to take pictures of deer or other animals in the woods. Users place the camera on a tree and set it to take pictures of the area. The camera provides a date and time stamp for information on when animals are in the area. Unlike standard digital cameras, Digital Stealth Cams do not have a built in LCD screen to review stored images. To view images, you need to hook the camera up to a television or computer.
