So they run out off stock for 3 months , that is the proper time.According to the main Hikvision distributor here in the UK 19th April in stock so a few weeks wait. Some companies have stock but a little more expensive. They run out of stock just after I purchased mine in late January so maybe first to get New Stock in UK.

No IR's on in either camera. For the Colorvu that means no white light.Thank you once again for the invaluable info and help. I think everything is clarified now.
Oh, that's very helpful. Literally, it's like night and day difference.
The 5442 looks like it has its IRs on though.
I also got the ''best' 5442 bullet one - got it from Andy.
Yeah, it appears the varifocal feature is not something I will ever use as both my outside cameras are mounted at a set point with a standard 7-8 metres distance from the area of interest. That won't change unless I move house of course. Therefore, I'm more interested in low light performance and the ColorVu looks like it performs superior in the dark and in true colour mode. It's also substantially smaller in size and probably consumes less power too.
Yes, that is the model. No lights turned on for any of my cameras in the backyard. In fact only my license plate cameras have the IR lights on.
This site appears to have the 4mm in stock but listed at $257. Anyone have experience with them?thx
If I can get my hands on a 4mm I'll test it side by side with a 5442 NI 3.6mm bullet
I would expect the 1/1.2 sensor and 4K to be great and better detail. . I’ll be testing in normal driveway light with no LEDs with a human walking around at 10-40 ft.I know which will win because I have had both. Mind you the 5442 is no slouch it is an excellent camera with a better interface IMHO. You won't be getting a 4mm for a month or 2 as no one has stock.
