First lot 10pcs(3 for testing review), are sold/arranged, we wait the first lot's show, and will book more stocks after it. Will come fast if we make order again.
The 10pcs already ready, will kick out off HONGKONG next weekend. :headbang:
If all work good, we will have some more stocks at early July.

I was waiting for a 5442 with veri focal. but I expected them all to have starlight+
I cannot see starlight+ nor starlight.
The point of the 4MP for me was that thanks for the starlight+, I could enjoy both 4MP and decent night view.
confused.

I was just looking at the Dahua site, they don't seem to be spouting the "Starlight+" marketing term on any of the 5442 series (or at least they don't on the few that I just looked at).

But if you look at the specs for this camera, you'll see that it has all the similar specs and goodies that the other 5442's have. Once the lucky guys who have gotten one for review confirm it, I'm sure we'll see that this vari-focal turret is just as good as the other 5442's.

Its minimum illumination is just ever so slightly higher than the fixed-lens turrets and vari-focal bullet, probably due to its f/1.8 lens instead of f/1.6 in the others, but that's pretty insignificant. I guess they needed a tiny-bit-smaller lens to fit inside the turret body. I see the vari-focal dome is also an f/1.8. The vari-focal bullet is f/1.6.

Thank you Dunk but I'm not sure where you are taking that data from...
In my internet, the eyeball cameras T5442TM-AS-LED and the IR version mentions the starlight+ and I also saw the bullet model DH-IPC-HFW5442E-ZE official spec that clearly mentions the starlight+ as well as showing the starlight+ logo.

By the way, for all those three camera, I could see image sensor of 1/1.8" with 4MP.
Please correct me if I'm wrong there.

I'm looking for 8 4MP starlight+ camera with face detection. I wanted them to be veri-focal and I prefer the eyeball style but so far, the only one I saw was the bullet style: DH-IPC-HFW5442E-ZE with everything I wanted.
It also cost way more than the other two I've mentioned in here (206$ VS 151$ or 153$).
Having said all of that, since all 8 cameras should be mounted on top of a cornices that is ~9 cm deep, maybe the bullet style is not such a bad idea (the wall mount of the eyeball style would probably not take me 9-10 cm out).
I also wanted to connect them to NVR4216-16P-I for the facial recognition feature. The BlueIris does not support that feature if I'm correct and IF I understand it all correct, it can provide 8 channels of face recognition providing you have 8 AI FD cameras.

I'll try to email Andy for some help but so far, I'm still confused and I'm not sure even what am I looking for,.

Thanks,

Arnon

No problem Arnold, I'm looking at Dahua's web site that lists the specs for their various cameras. You can find the link in Bickford's OP for this thread. I see your link for the datasheet for the bullet, here's a link to the datasheet to the turret: It does mention face detection and Startlight+.

Yah, their marketing materials often have confusing and even conflicting information. Good idea to message Andy, he can probably give you better firsthand information.

And take a look at some of the threads here about Face Detection in Blue Iris, or the threads on having a camera's alarm trigger Blue Iris, there might some stuff there that you can find useful.
