The camera will work. It is a lower line fixxed focus cam with limited flash cap. I had a snappy lxi working for a couple rolls then I tried to wire in another flash and a capacitor...toast. Day time pics will match quality of owls but the night flash pics are poor. If you already have this cam great, but don't go buy one ...put 20 bucks more in and get a sureshot -good flash pics are worth the extra coin I think....yoteee'
