Hi @marzianYou have to pick one 4k camera for outdoor use. Price is a minor factor within the consumer world. Say up to $500. I know no one model will fit everybody's needs but you get one pick. Thanks.
I need to replace aging Hikvision 1080P cameras. Never thought they would hold up so well for about 8 years. I am not married to the 4k idea. I just want as good of a camera as today's technology has to offer. Watching the house perimeter in a suburban home.
1/2.7" such as let's say Amcrest 4K would be a horrible choice then?Are you going to send it to me?
I wouldn't buy a 4k(8MP) just yet. Until they start using larger sensors than 1/1.8 in them a 2k(4MP) with a 1/1.8" sensor will beat the pants off it at night. There is a Sony with a 35mm sensor that works really well but the camera body, sans lens and weatherproof enclosure, is over $1000.
That's because they are NOT 4k camera's but 4mpI really like my IPC-T5442T-ZE and IPC-T5442TM-AS 4k cameras and they are really good at night because they have a nice 1/1.8" sensor and reasonably priced below $200
Hi @marzian,I did. I would say if it's a trade-off, I'd take better daytime performance over nighttime.
I would say the Brand New 4K HIKVISION DS-2CD2087G2-LU with it's 1/1.2" sensor and F1:0 lens is the best Day & Night camera I have had to date.
Have a read through the thread below it has lots of Realtime images and clips day & night time then you can make your own mind up.
Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L) | IP Cam Talk
Sorry I meant 4MP , the max resolution of the cameras I got is 2688x1520 so closer to 2kThat's because they are NOT 4k camera's but 4mp
What ' s The difference between 2K and 4K resolution?
In comparison, DCI 4K resolution is 4,096 x 2,160 pixels, resulting in a total pixel count of 8,847,360. With horizontal and vertical dimensions twice as large as 2K, a DCI 4K image has four times the total resolution of a 2K image. In some cases, the terms UHD and 4K will be used interchangeably.
Dahua are bringing the 4k same sensor and lens out soon though so should be a good shootout between both.
I am using BI and I am almost done with the 40 pages of the Hikvision discussion. I am impressed so far!Hi @marzian,
If you have a Hikvision NVR I'd review the model ljw2k recommended and see if it will work for you. ( sounds like a great option if you only have 1 camera you need to pick up to work with your other Hik cameras )
( remember to check that your NVR can handle a 8MP camera .. )
If you are using blue iris, you could also look at Dahua OEM cameras.
Either way, there should be a number of good reviews to check out here by members.
