    Yeah ok, but i bet that the camera in the demo is one of the high tier ultra's, as it also has a extreme zoom. I'm happy with the outcome on my SD49225, because they made the function available on a much cheaper model :D

    Installed the new firmware and focus is improved.
    Not as good as the demo video, but definitely improved.

    Ahh okay thanks! I don't have (or plan to) attached any LCD screens to NVR, I thought people use these devices via Web UI or using local network anyway. Or should I buy a small LCD screen for this NVR? That does not seem wise.

    What seems to be the issue? I was actually thinking of possibly getting one like this or at least one similar.

    It works, but it is not nearly as fast and smooth as that demo shows. But I suspect that was an Ultra series cam.
    Mine works ok in the daylight, but at night it still is slow in focusing. Especcically at the 24 and 25x range. At 25x, at night, it sometimes never comes into complete focus.

    Edit: Oops, mine is the SD59225U-HNI, not the one in this thread.

    You really need to use a WD Purple drive in that NVR.

    Hi All. Do these Starlights work well at night in a well lit area without IR switched on? The reason I ask is because I want to use this through a window and I understand that IR does not work through a window? So I'm wondering if it will be bright enough at night. Thanks.

    Has the price changed lately for this camera? Is it okay to ask? Thanks.

    I am debating between the 59225 and this camera. I can't find anywhere for sure if it has audio built in. It appears it does not but need to make sure. Have since found out that it does not.

    You won't find a PTZ with built-in audio. But, these cams do have audio capability's. You just have to add a microphone.
    Read the specs on the Dahua International web site, and they tell you all you need to know.

    Not this level of a PTZ anyways. The small SD1A203T starlight PTZ cameras do have mics built in.... Tiny little things with just a 3X optical zoom though. I bought a couple from Andy and they are great little setups. Now I'm looking for something with a longer zoom so here I am in this thread. :)
