Interesting, there was a thread here in August on these cameras.

They show in-stock at a few websites I looked at but no pricing.

ALI Express shows them for $258 (not Andy's store, hopefully he will have some soon).

JAMAC shows limited stock for $260

so i got my hands on one of these cameras....and Im a little disappointed. I cannot turn off the supplemental light, and there is no IR which means its total darkness if there is very very little light.

Thanks for posting, if the light is always on, that would be a deal breaker for me.

ETA Based upon my interpretation of the manual, in day mode (full color) the supplemental light is off. This may not be ideal but with streetlights, I would think it would work well.

Yes I agree...but once street lights turn off...you got nothing.

Yes but you bought the wrong camera for that use case. You want a active deterrence style if you want the light on just when their is motion

@James022 what are the chances of posting a few day / night snaps from your 2CD2387G2 and a bit of a review?

You appear to be one of the few that have managed to get their hands on this new model camera.

In Australia we are still waiting for Hikvision suppliers to stock this model and it's looking a lot like it's going to be next year before we see them here.

Yeah... That will be great. Because I'm thinking of replacing the Amcrest 2499 with ColorVu Turrets DS-2CD2387G2-L(U) when it's available on Amazon too. Too bad
Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X does not have turret version of it.

Pretty much the same camera as the DS-2CD2087G2-LU which is a bullet style and this is a turret style but around the same price here in UK
I see there is a Black version also. 2.8mm & 4mm

Does this cam have missing object detection? I couldn't find it in the data sheet?
