Wow, Has anybody else had this issue ? Quite the difference..Glad you posted this because I was thinking about purchasing a few of the fixed lens units.I mounted the 4321 bullet above the 4231 turret today and found that the bullet does not have the sun washout problem. To make conditions more even, I removed the sunshade from the bullet. These are the same cameras with the same sensors in different cases. Following through on a prior suggestion I'll try swapping their positions tomorrow, and if the washout stays with the turret I'll start jumping to conclusions. Answering another question, I do not see any IR bleed. Today's pictures below. I'm embedding just the thumbnails.

I also have this issue with my SD-49225T-HN when the lens hits the sun at just the right angle...not much you can do about it. I have several of the IPC-HDW4231EM-AS and have no issues at all but mine are aimed downward not at sun. I would chalk this up to a bad placement of cam situation.Wow, Has anybody else had this issue ?

I would too if other cameras mounted less than a foot away didn't have the image washed out. It's not a sun in the FOV issue, which wipes our the image on all my cameras. This is the sun outside the FOV. The camera points southwest and right now the picture washes out from 4:30 to 7:30 pm. I'm just trying to understand what makes one camera behave differently than the others. Tinman, does the audio work on your IPC-HDW4231EM-AS cameras?I would chalk this up to a bad placement of cam situation.
I have several of these but one has started locking up. I will go to view camera picture and it will freeze on a picture from hours before . When I click it says searching for video and then times out.
The 2231 might be the replacement you are looking for.Looking for the IPC-HDW4231EM-AS or similar with a 2.8mm lens. Does Andy carry these?
I have a couple with the 3.8mm, this one would go in a damp barn/shelter under an eve that is somewhat exposed so it would have to be weather proof and the wider vision would cover the area nicely. Don't need anything fancy with on-board storage or 4k but night vision is a must.
Been trying to decide which of my current cameras I could steal and move to this location... but they are all well placed and would like to keep them where they are, so I guess I'll have to just bite the bullet and buy another one.
