No 2232-I5 EXIR or 2442 cube?

Also, seems 2142 has a motorized lens whereas the 2742 doesn't. Seems odd....

the 2142 does not have a motorized lens...its an error in the description, there is not way they can move the lens around inside the dome why keeping the foam ring flush to prevent IR reflection

OK and you know this for sure or just speculating? Not being cheeky, just want to know facts before getting some.

I dont work for hikvision, so I a making an educated guess because of the camera design...and the 5w max power consumption rating..

I received the new DS-2CD2942F-IWS earlier this week but have not installed it yet, just played around a bit and it seems OK, including light sensitivity.

So I've received my 4MP today. I'll post some comparisons and specs over the next few days. First a list of the two cams + config options:


3MP: DS-2CD2532F-IS (Firmware: V5.2.3 build 141024, Encoding: V5.0 build 140714)
4MP: DS-2CD2542FWD-IS (Firmware: V5.3.2 build 150603, Encoding: V7.0 build 150525)


The 4MP is a confirmed English cam. It has a full English sticker at the back and came in a retail (e.g., colored) box. According to the seller it's fully upgradeable for the future via official firmwares published by Hikvision. It cost me $195 including DHL shipping.


Video settings are at maximum for both, meaning:
- highest bitrate
- highest quality
- highest resolution
- highest framerate
- Iframe interval at 20


Image settings have been made equal on both:
- No image adjustments
- Exposure 1/30, gain 100
- Day setting
- No BLC area
- No WDR
- AWB1
- DNR off


Here are two day shots taken at ~15:30. The cars are approximately 10-12 meters away.


3MP:

4MP:

These are both snapshots taken directly from the camera. I'll post some evening/night shots when I get around to it.

I'm quite excited about the 4MP quality. There's a clear difference in day quality. License plates are readable on the 4MP (although blurred out for you guys), whereas on the 3MP they're barely readable.

Any questions, just ask!

@Dutchie30 Thanks for the shots. Looking forward to the evening images. 195 is a great deal considering china region cams 2532's are about 145 with standard shipping...

Wow, thanks for the pics Ducthie30. That's a whole lot better than I thought, compared to the 3MP. That does it, sending an order to my friend based in China :D

What's the lenses in yours Dutchie, 4mm?

@Dutchie30 Please state the exact video settings with numbers (unless they are only descriptive). The day picture of the 4MP camera looks sharper especially at the trees leaves and where thereis sudden transtion of contrast.
