l bought a TC50 trail apeman camera year ago and used it quite often last year. lt was great catching all the night creatures during the night. The strange thing is. l forgot how to use it again.l haven't used the camera for some time now, and lost the knowledge of how to set it up again. l looked on the computer and cannot find the proper instructions for this kind of camera. 

l was thinking of joining a trail nature camera club on Facebook explaining how l lost the ability to use it again. l do have sudden memory loss due to my disorder. But the reason why l did not join the club is due to me feeling embarrassed to tell them how to set it up. 
l need a video to show me how to operate the camera. words confuse me now. l do have the instructions, but l am so confused about what it says.
just wondered if anyone on here is a camera operator and can show me . Here is the camera l have.

    Hello @Ookpik

    Thanks for posting, sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with setting up your camera.

    I'm sure that the members of the group wouldn't think badly of you at all, everybody has trouble setting something up every now and again, especially when it has been a while since using it. They will recognise that you have a shared passion with them, and will help you out if you need it.

    Have you considered contacting the manufacturer of the camera? They might be able to talk you through how to set it up, or provide instructions in am ore accessible format for you. Additionally, I found this video on YouTube about the camera, as well as this one. They aren't specifically set up videos, but might be useful.

    Thanks, Ross for commenting. But unfortunately, those 2 are not the ones. They only show the instructions from the wrist gadget. But do not show the instruction from the camera's buttons.l  should've mentioned about the video's you sent me were also the one's l found. 
    l'll go on that website and see if someone on there can help me. lt would be nice to capture some night lift on the camera so l can post it on this forum. Maybe one day,if l am successful, l will

    Hi @Ookpik :) 

    As @Ross_Scope mentioned, please don't feel embarrassed about asking for help. We all need support in our lives and no one will judge you or treat you differently - I struggle with brain fog quite often, but I realise that most people will want to help and make things easier for you :)

    I've found the manufacturer website for you and here are their contact details. 

    I hope that's helpful and let us know if you have any further questions.
