When you get a chance I would also like to see a daytime shot for comparison.
Yes I will get a daytime shot. Right now I have it scheduled to only turn on at night as this is one of the most expensive cams so I am trying to pro long its life as well since I really need it to do its job at night but I will turn it on at daytime to see what we can gather :) By the way thank you to you Parley The 4/3 ptz is really really good I had my friend pickup 2 of those units recently and he even loves it. I show him your video with mine as what it can do :) So thank you :p

I wanted to compare things such as the rocks in the front yard from day to night. My 4/3" PTZ narrows the "good" focus range down at night from the daytime. During the daytime the focus range increase quite abit.

4/3 Is also pretty darn awesome since it can auto track. It is the next best thing in terms of light gathering cams I got None other matches performance. I have one 1 1.8 4mp bullet and that does not come close to what 4/3 8mp can do at night..
Same here. That is why I wish Dahau would come out with cameras with a larger sensor such as a 2/3". Hikvision has them but you pay a steep price.

Some shots from just now After the sunset little bit light still left It was raining on and off today so a cloudy day...

1st the 1 1.8 PTZ. Trying to make all stay color..


2nd - My 4/3 PTZ


3rd - The Sony 35mm


One of these days will play around Sony focus .. but will need a second person to stand in the target area to dial the focus unless someone has any other idea here.. to set the focus in general target area that I want..

Thank you for the video. I would rank the Sony as the best, a close 2nd is the 4/3" PTZ and last the 1/1.8" PTZ. The colors on the Sony camera are very vivid. However like you said it needs some focus adjustment. The 4/3" PTZ has better overall focus looking at the rocks and across the street.

Yeah, I definately need to focus more in the front of the image to try capturing possible suspects faces.. Just need to have someone stand maybe in target area to try adjusting focus since the lens is 1.4 focus is very limited ..

Agree I also love the 4/3 of what it does :) Parley have you seen those Radar units which helps I think PTZ with auto track I just dont know how they work exactly.

No, I have not seen or even knew about the Radar units.

Dont know why I did not do this sooner. I installed a Motion Security Light which is helping this Camera a LOT.. Here is a night time footage with the light now..


The lights in the front of my house come on when it starts to get dark. When there is motion the lights go on full. After a couple of minutes with no motion they cut the lighting in half. Still plenty of light for my 2K cameras.

That focus on the front yard and white car was incredible. It almost looks like that miniature filter that photographers use to make real objects look like toys.

I agree. The focus and clarity are so good it looks like a high quality HD broadcast camera not cctv. With the larger sensor, you can definately see the effect of depth of field.

It's a pity this camera is discontinued, but not surprising given the purchase price.

Yea I just added these Motions lights. So it definitely is nice. Do you have it to turn on the motion say when someone is far or almost by your target area. Right now mine comes in pretty far wonder if I should adjust it to turn on a bit later. The reason I say that say that way. Criminals more than likely do not notice any cams at night before they come close to the cameras for a nice shot.

Yea the focus on this F1.4 lens is pretty darn sharp. The focus is set right behind where that white car is.. Since its a F1.4 lens the focus is pretty narrow.

The motion distance on mine is adjustable to when it comes on.

Not a camera guy, but what causes that sharp focus on the car but very soft/blurry focus on the objects just across the street from the car. Is that a depth of field issue?
