    Full Color Night Vision Starlight Cameras

    It's been awhile since I've been on here but does anyone have any suggestions for a camera that has full color night vision that doesn't require ir lights to see in full color? The camera would have to be able to clearly resolve the stars in the night sky with no video noise. I own the...

    NA Models of 5231 & 5442?

    Just out of curiosity are there Dahua cams intended for the North American market that directly match the specs of the now famous 5231 EZ (turret) and the new 5442 that some say replaces or competes well against the 5231? Are the same exact cams in NA but sold under a different model number and...

    WTS Dahua Starlights for sale

    First, it sucks that I'm selling these Dahua Starlight cams - they have been absolutely amazing! And just as the hundreds of posts on this forum indicate, they are the best bang for the buck for a general purpose camera. However, I work for a different manufacturer where having Dahua on my...

    4MP/Varifocal/Starlight? IPC-HFW5442E-ZE, N45DB7Z, Or ??

    Hi Andy. I THINK what I want for a base general purpose camera is 4MP / Varifocal / Starlight? Ideally turret but it seems for now bullet may be the only good option? These would fulfill about 17 positions w/ the remaining 10 a combo of PTZ and higher rez fixed focus. These seem good options...

    IPC-HDW2531TM-AS 5MP "Lite" 1/2.7" Starlight - any good?

    Anybody seen/used these - seem to be new for 2019/20? From the "Lite" starlight range. How do they compare with the 2431 4MP or the older 2MP starlight? Presumably they are at least somewhat better than the Chinese market HDW4431C-A, HDW4433C-A or HDW4631C-A with their 1/3" and 1/2.9" sensors...

    Best IP camera for low light without IR LEDs

    Hi, I've been asked to source 4 cameras to monitor some astronomy equipment during night observations, ideally wide angle. I cannot use IR LEDs as they will affect the equipment. Any recommendations on the best setup for such a case? Thanks! Peter

    Dahua Starlight vs Hikvision low light performance

    I've spent hours trying to figure out which cameras are good for low light/night color recording. On this forum, it looks like Starlight is the gold standard, however, looking at specs for Hikvision's EasyIP 3.0 2355 Turret (5MP), the lux ratings are nearly identical. Does that mean hikvision...

    Review: Dahua Starlight Mini PT Dome SD12200T-GN

    The SD12200T-GN is a compact lite series pan and tilt camera with a starlight sensor and fixed lens. It’s basically the offspring of the Dahua Starlight Mini-Dome 3.6mm (IPC-HDB4231C-AS) (which is F2.0) and the older Dahua 3MP 3.6MM Mini Pan/Tilt Video (ipc-hdb4300f-pt) This camera does not have...
