first the video, at this time youtube didnt completely processed the video, the 3mp quality is not yet available


i'm testing the camera right now so it is inside the house looking through a windows

with my setting there is enough light outside, from the street lamp, so it doesn't go into black&white

now the setting;

the snow is helping a lot, once it melts, performance will suffer.
yup,but again this was taken from the inside, through a windows and when installed outside i will have a secondary light

worst case, if i find that camera useless during the summer i will try to sell it and get another one

first timer here with outdoor camera :winktongue: i will learn one way or another :banghead:

Black and white mode is nearly always better for dark scenes. Unless you absolutely need color, or prefer color over clarity, I think your settings are fine. You can always fine tune once it's up to accommodate your exact lighting conditions.

(lower right corner)
40 is DS-2DE3304W-DE
41 is DS-2CD2155FWD-I

same setting on both, latest firmware on both, it's nice to have the 2155 converted from 5mp to 6mp!

i'm impressed by this DS-2DE3304W-DE, still inside so IR led is off on the other one, reflection is a thing :smash:

You should try one of the cameras with "darkfighter" technology.

use a 2mp cam for better night vision.
Here is 2DE4A220 and 2DE4A204 at night in 'day mode'
