    Hikvision is releasing a 1/2" sensor turret camera. It is not marketed as low light or "powered by darkfighter" like the bullets with similar specs, but should perform well in low light. Dahua has 4k cameras with large 1/1.8" sensors (1831 and 2831) but not in the turret form which is desirable.

    I notice these cams are available to buy now especially here in the UK. Wondering if anyone has played with one?

    Here's a link to their PDF on it, but IMO, their summary does a good job wrapping it all up:

    wish there were some reviews on them.. as I have a 4k turret and it is good but could be better.. The larger sensor and darkfighter are very interesting..

    I am looking to replace my DS-2CD2385FWD-I with one of these.. I presume it will be much better at night due to the larger sensor?

    Cheers

    If it's like the new Dahuas with the larger 4K/8MP sensors, it'll be an improvement over the 4K/8MP 1/2.5" sensors, but still a bit out from the low-light image quality of the 2MP 1/2.8" sensors.

    Maybe this is the turret version of the bullet DS-2CD2085G1-I. The specs are very similar.

    With as much light as in those sample clips, one wouldnt need the best low light camera..... my yard aint nearly that bright.

    How did it work out? I'm wondering if one of these will maintain good colour and detail at nighttime with urban street lighting (UK)

    ok it has been up a week now and I am so so about it.. if I didn't have a front door light on with motion it wouldn't be great with colour. However I am still struggling with what settings to use as it is only dark here now for a few hours...

    Seems good in color. How does it look in black and white with iR? Does your live view lag when watching with chrome/firefox/edge/ie?
