Its a good price. This is the hik equivalent model. 8 MP Panoramic Fixed Turret Network Camera
Perhaps @EMPIRETECANDY can give you a price on the hik but this is a hard price to beat.

I pulled the trigger at $219.99 ( newegg had it on sale last week). Annke is not my first choice but it seems very well made. Not an expert but am pretty happy with it for my purposes. Night vision is good and addresses the need for a front camera on house. Received from new egg in record 2 days.

It is not on their website but they have this which also seems pretty cheap FCD600 - Panoramic Outdoor PoE Dual Lens Security Camera, 6MP Resolution, 180° Ultra Wide Angle, f/1.2 Super Aperture, BSI Sensor, Color Night Vision, Built-in Mic, Active Siren & Alarm, Human & Vehicle Detection, Two-Way Audio


From what I can tell it is the same as 8 MP Panoramic Fixed Turret Network Camera as Fenderman mentioned, I asked Andy if could purchase the HIK version since they are out of stock. I would rather support purchasing from Andy.

Yes, looks like a good price ..

for reference, I'm attaching the following from Annke's page .. note, Annke often does send out discount codes, so I would expect this to go on sale at Annke one day ..

Here is the first picture from the camera. The camera is setup on my test stand in the garage with no lights on and the garage door closed. I used the Hikvision SADP program to setup the camera, so that does confirm it is indeed a Hikvision manufactured camera. The lens of the camera is 45" above the floor. The Hikvision box with H.265+ on it is 22" away. The HP Office-Jet Pro box is 5' away. The box on the right that says baby wipes is 5' 6" away. So IMHO the close in focus is pretty good for a 4mm camera. It will be mounted about 8' high in its final position. The camera will also be tilted down compared to this picture. The image looks pretty sharp to me, and I cannot see any stitching which is good.

The 6mp(2x3mp) camera uses inferior sensors when it comes to low light capabilities, however, the sensor does provide almost double the vertical FOV as the 8mp (2x4mp) camera. This can be extremely useful near doorways if you want to see packages etc.

In trying to solve the substream problem and the display on my IVS-4200, I downloaded the latest software onto the camera and the NVR that it is hooked up to. So far no dice. I will post a picture when it gets dark. The side of the house that this camera is on has a street lamp and does get some good night light.

I have none too. Can you adjust white balance to compensate? Don't know how the sodium lights look with different settings. They're throwing off plenty of light.
