    Any decent doorbell cameras yet?

    Latest Sony Sensor List

    Interesting list of Sony Sensors. What's really interested is the sensor everyone on here is gravitating towards, the IMX185LQJ is actually towards the bottom of the list suggesting it's quite old, and there are STARVIS sensors with 4K and 8.3mp specifications available. Wonder why Dahua / HIK...
