    The 4k/8mp IP cameras that LAView and Swann are including in their newer upscale kits look to be the same cameras.
    From a quick search, the 2 cameras look to be obtained from the Chinese Company: Fuzhou IQview CCTV Co.,Ltd.
    They are listed as a trading co. and a manufacturer.
    From Swann's and LAView's ads, these seem to be fairly impressive cameras.

    Anyone familiar with these cameras?
    Opinions as to their quality?

    Hikvision is the manufacturer of Swann & LaView:

    @ TonyR,
    I had heard that Hikvision was the manufacturer [supplier?] for LAView.
    But, Hikvision lists no camera that looks anything like the two being sold by LAView and Swann that I can find.
    A search through a few Chinese supplier sites has only found IQview advertising these cameras for sale.
    They call themselves manufacturers.
    Someone else has termed them as being a trading company.

    This is an after the fact question.
    I have bought and am now installing a Swann kit around our property.
    I probably should have asked this question before buying the system.
    So far, I am impressed with them.
    But, then, I am moving up from a 720p to this 4k setup.
    Doesn't take much to look better than that one.

    EDIT:
    I hope this is allowed.
    To keep there from being any confusion as to which cams I am talking about, here are links to the product pages for them at both LAView and Swann:

    It's not unusual for an OEM (like Dahua or Hikvision) to not offer a specific design or style that is offered by the brand that they manufacturer for...and vice versa:
    • Amcrest sells indoor PT-digital zoom cams made for them by Dahua and Dahua offers no cams that look like that style of Amcrest.
    • Dahua sells many flavors of a turret-style cams that Amcrest does not offer.
