There is no use for lanterns in this game...

Go explore a cave and tell me you still feel that way.

You can also adjust settings on your end, might be worth looking into.

Pro tip to make Lanterns unnecessary:

Spoiler

Do the bounty for the Gunslinger in Stawberry.  Mark the cave on your map.

After turning him in, go back to the cave and activate the dynamite plunger.  It opens up a secret area that has a Unique Knife, Miner's hat, and gold nugget.  The Miner's Hat is like a flashlight for your head, and EXTREMELY helpful riding at night or exploring interiors.

Did you just find that by accident?

I don't think that one is accessible for me yet, but I'm getting the guide today. Sort of cheating, but I don't want to miss anything.

I took a break from the story (only at 33%) to hunt/fish. Never thought I'd enjoy hunting/fishing in a video game so much.

I did.  I was hunting the legendary buck over there, and remembered the cave from when I did the bounty in Strawberry. 

Spoiler

I remembered the plunger from the train robbery at the beginning, and sure enough, when I used "Eagle Eye" it lit up like the Griswold household on Christmas eve.  I activated it and it blew open the back of the cave.

If you've been over to Strawberry, you can unlock the mission to find the cave by doing the bounty at the sherrif's office.  Just remember to mark your map afterwards so you can find it again after completing the bounty.

I guess I need to switch to whiskey while I play...

I'll have to head back over and check it out.

I had just done that mission last night.

I had tried going down in the mine, figuring there may be something valuable in there. But I quickly came to the dead end. I had not thought of using dynamite there to clear the rocks on the path. 

Thanks for the info.

I think the nights are too bright in this game. The nights look like early mornings. They really should decrease the brightness in the night. There is no use for lanterns in this game...

You can adjust the games visual settings to adjust how bright and dark things are. I can also adjust my TV's settings too. On my Sony TV there are a few presets to toggle through. As well as making fine tune adjustments. 

Using the game's HDR mode on my PS4 Pro results in noticeably darker images.

I have noticed a difference with lighting at night if the moon is out or not. Last night I experienced a full moon, and it was bright out for night time. But not too bright. Seemed realistically bright, during RL full moon.

If it's any consolation, I almost turned around and left the second time I was there too, but this game is of full of esoteric detail that I go over everything possible.  Sure it slows down the gameplay, but I love doing it.
