Yes and no, if you are viewing your cam
with a TV, I'm not so sure, but if you are
viewing your cam with the computer you can.
Depending on the software you are using to
view the cam, you can usually adjust
brightness, contrast, hue, etc. Good luck.

 Camera shop and ask for filter plastic it
comes in sheets or did it has been some
years since I bought any.What about the
lights near your cam down size them ,lower
watts.
My pole light I set up covers 1,600 sq.ft
and is 12 high and my cam is half way on
the pole under the light and works great. I
would also make sure that there is not any
kind of refection from glass that may be to
close. The other thing I found out was a
lot a real lot as to how well you receive
you picture has to do with the antennas
pointing at each other. From blue screen to
fuzzy picture it all came down to the
antennas for me. Hope this is some help

I forgot you should also remove the plastic
cover over lens and see what happens and
make sure there is no water in cap clean
with lens paper and be sure to replace it.
I am working on removing this cap and
covering with something better.

A 1/2 inch conduit COUPLING (Female to
Female) of electrical PVC (grey in color)
fits perfectly. The grey will not reflect as
much light into the camera lens as white
PVC will.
