Day or Night Shooting
Take advantage of night vision up to 32' (9.75 m). Track when your photos were taken and during which lunar phase with convenient day, time and moon phase stamping
Moon Phase Stamp
Links current date to the phase of the moon on that date, and imprints an icon on your photo representing the moon phase when the photo was captured. This can help you determine whether particular animals are inactive at night when a full or nearly full moon is present, causing them to be more visible to predators. Such a tool is especially useful to hunters, but can also come in handy for nature photography: If some of your night photos seem to have a darker or lighter background, you can see if that was related to how bright the moon was at the time
