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.

Viewing Images on Television

Step 1

Attach the component cables to the "Video Out" jack on the Stealth Cam and plug the other end into the "Video In" jack on the television.

Step 2

Change the television to the correct video input channel. Refer to the documentation supplied with your television for information on doing so.

Step 3

Press the "Menu" button on the camera and select "TV System."

Step 4

Use the "UP" or "DN" buttons to switch the television from "TV-N," for NTSC televisions, or "TV-P," for PAL televisions, then press "OK" to confirm the selection. (As a general rule, NTSC is used in the Americas.) Press the "Menu" button to exit the camera's main menu

Step 5

Open "My Computer" on your computer and locate the camera under "Removable Storage Devices."
