    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Time to wrap this review. One extra little detail before I jump in (also mentioned in Pro's below) is that this Dahua cam DOES support *Video (Target) Cropping so wanted to give that a shout out here for those wanting that functionality (its on Sub-Stream 2 and supports HD up to 24 FPS). Wrap...

    IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E lost settings?

    Which version of firmware are you running on the 5241-Z12 @Kutalon. Remember in the latest FW you can set manual focus as mode and should hold setting. Just make sure you are using IE. If you want me to jump on and take a look let me know via DM

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Now I've completed a ton of videos on this one and the comparisons are over I'm going to focus the thread back to my main topic which is the review of this Dahua 4K camera. So whats next ? Over the next few days and into next week I'll post a wrap up on my final thoughts of this camera after...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Without further ado, here is the re-shot day version I mentioned. As you can see after the pro WB I performed in FOV colors are more inline with what I would expect plus even with same settings both cams are more accurately representing color and light in FOV which was the goal. As stated, this...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Both were set to best possible for the night shoot as I mentioned, thats why settings are different. The day video I am about to repost was re-shot as I wanted to perform a true white balance on FOV (as I did with the night video) and then adjust as needed. In the new white balanced day version...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    No refocusing at all. In fact I was just about to reply with the following :) I’m not planning on it for this review but if I get time to revisit I will. To be honest I do think its a fair representation of the experience out of the box. This is a brand new Hikvision I picked up, factory sealed...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Forgot to add, my goal (since already captured and edited) will be to get the day one up today then I'll work on the wrap up over the next few days and revisit with a follow up test once I get the new FW

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Next up will be the day video revisit with both cams white balanced. This will just be a short one but for completeness wanted to revisit while white balancing with WB cards in FOV

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Actually looks like an issue in the editor itself. I've re-encoded and re-uploaded.

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    'What is the bitrate for both cameras (I assume they're both running H.265)? 8192Kbps? 6144Kbps?' Maconi These are both set to 20fps in cam running h264 at 15k for test purposes. As the Hikvision only supports fixed rates both cams were set to the same exposures for the comparison hence 1/60...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Hey @ljw2k, hope you are well. I can't speak to the 2.8mm as I don't have that, only the 4mm (but I may try and pickup a 2.8 in the future). What I can speak to is the test and the cams in hand on this scene. As always clips are straight from cam, into editor for titles, frame synced for the...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    All Finally YouTube finished it’s re-processing after failing twice ! So here is the next video which is focused on night testing. Lets jump into how I set this test and the caveats :) In this case I white balanced both cams using pro cards in the FOV. While this certainly ensures white colors...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Well, thanks to Youtube (and its known bug of taking a video upload then failing at point of their processing so it isn't made available), I've had to upload this 3 times BUT at least now their processing is finally doing what it should be. Will check back in tomorrow make sure that has...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Yes especially when 8.5 minutes :) Plus a pain that YouTube re-encodes everything even when you’re already keeping in pro codecs and encode to their standards.

    IPC-T5442T-ZE IPC-T5442TM-AS SMD 3.0 Smart IR Latest New Firmware From EmpireTech

    Yes as @EMPIRETECANDY mentioned I tested the SMD 3.0 only FW (latest) and saw a great reduction in false alerts and more accurately capturing Human vs Vehicle which is good news. As mentioned this does NOT include the SmartIR fixes based on the work I did but that will be in the next FW version...

    All Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th ! Apologies for the delay in thread update and in DM response, I've not been slacking off :) just re-shooting the night comparison as I wanted to test the new 'shipping' version of the FW that I was provided on the Dahua. For clarity this is NOT the...

    Review: Dahua SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP 25x Starlight IR PTZ

    Just be careful with those later FW versions as they started to pull some features as I mentioned. Those may not be important to you but either way, heads up
