    Guess the camera format? IP or Analogue

    I'd guess it's analogue, despite it being 8MP, as the codec ID is "isom (isom/iso2/avc1/mp41)"

    Initial review of the Hikvision DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) ColorVu 4K 8MP IP bullet camera.

    Not via the web GUI it seems. I tried via the bootloader/recovery facility on the DS-2CD2347G2-LU but that route isn't available on that camera as the rcvy part has been tweaked and is currently persona non grata. By all means do so - if I can load it, I should be able to check the same...

    Initial review of the Hikvision DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) ColorVu 4K 8MP IP bullet camera.

    Interesting - so not quite the same firmware and camera model where I see the frame rate stuck at 30fps. This one is using V5.5.160 build 210209 I just downloaded IPC_G3_EN_STD_5.5.160_210108 off the DS-2CD2347G2-LU product page. Yet another variant of the V5.5.160 firmware ...

    Initial review of the Hikvision DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) ColorVu 4K 8MP IP bullet camera.

    What firmware and camera is this? The IPC_G3_EN_STD_5.5.160_210209 using the DS-2CD2347G2-LU camera limits the max bitrate setting to 8192 or less on this camera. But it allows up to 16,384 on the DS-2CD2087G2-LU - and this is also stuck at 30fps under the same firmware. I assessed the fps...

    Initial review of the Hikvision DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) ColorVu 4K 8MP IP bullet camera.

    Triggered by Dave's comments about the Video settings in the G3 firmware, I thought I'd take a look at those on the IPC_G3_EN_STD_5.5.160_210209 using the DS-2CD2347G2-LU camera. It's a bit bugged, fps is stuck at 30 on h.265, but other settings seem to work OK. Here is how it looked to me ...

    Initial review of the DS-2CD2347G2-L(U) ColorVu 2.0 IP camera.

    Yes, I had seen this as well, and puzzled over what the 'C' might mean. I'm speculating that there could be internal hardware differences, judging by the significant differences listed against the product variants. Maybe I should try the G5 firmware on the 'G2' camera and see if it takes it...

    Initial review of the DS-2CD2347G2-L(U) ColorVu 2.0 IP camera.

    It does seem like the G3 firmware is a bit of a work in progress. Inspecting and testing the bugs and flaws out as opposed to not designing them in during development.

    R0 / DS-2CD2x32 BrickfixV2 brick recovery and full upgrade tool - enhanced.

    Excellent! It's always good to hear of a positive result, thanks for sharing.

    Initial review of the DS-2CD2347G2-L(U) ColorVu 2.0 IP camera.

    Removed from the portals, maybe considered a bit too bugged, but still available via the product page : https://www.hikvision.com/en/products/IP-Products/Network-Cameras/colorvu-series/ds-2cd2087g2-l-u-/

    Cant get Hik-Connect "Online" through company firewall.

    This is intended to be constructive criticism. By creating this crude and insecure ability for the entire internet to access a potentially vulnerable device that's not been designed or certified to be cyber secure, you may well be opening up your company's data and assets to significant risk...

    Legit hikvision nvr to suit Australian region?

    I'd say that looks OK, it's not a China region model. It's very easy to do a basic test - just hook up either the HDMI or VGA output to a TV or monitor and power it up. The display will show if it boots up OK.

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    With the caveat that I'm not a BI user --- that's bytes per second, as opposed to bits per second in the camera bitrate settings.

    Need help buying nvr off ebay

    That's not much cheaper than the new price, over here. But I can see that these are a bit more expensive down under.

    Need help buying nvr off ebay

    If the model number on the label under the NVR itself is the same as on the box label, I'd say it's OK. What's important is that it's 'NI' (English, International) as opposed to 'N' (Chinese) Would it be rude to ask how much? That can give an indication of whether it's the real thing.
