Hi @IceColdHello i have a dahua 4433 that has great picture quality during daytime until its get dark. The IR lights up good but anything moving is just a blurry mess. Are there some guide on how to improve nighttime performance?
When i turned it off or lowered it much under 50 its garbled mess but i discoverd that the profile was set to day, when i changed it to night the quality was better!Try turning off the 3DNR or set it to a very low grade, like 4-6. You will see the picture gets grainier but should reduce the blur.
Guess i need to get a better camera. I have read many reviews here on the starlights but finding them in sweden is really hard and the import taxes from the US (or china) is huge nowadays. Thought this camera would do a little better since its perfect quality during daytime. I got a hikvision there that covers the whole front yard with decent low light performance but i wanted something a little more zoomed in (its a 6mm lens on the dahua).Hi @IceCold
That camera has a rather small sensor compared to better models out now.
1/3" 4Megapixel progressive scan CMOS
While you maybe able to tune it a bit, you will probably not achieve anything close to the results you want.
I highly recommend checking out some of the newer reviews by members here on cameras which have newer and larger sensors. ( Dahua starlight / starlight+ models are well liked in low light conditions as well as the Hikvision nightfigther models. Especially useful as you are in Sweden with shorter daylight hours )
If you can afford a new better model, I would recommend going that route and placing that camera in another position which is less critical for low light conditions.
example of a good option to consider:
