I can't tell if the grain is from the rain or not.
I'm using the utility with a fixed zoom, though not sure what happens when it was auto switching from night to day due to that setting i had in there.That camera (the Z12) has issues with keeping focus during the Day/Night switch, particularly over 80% zoom. It helps if you can have the switch occur while there's still enough light for it to find something to focus on.
BTW, if it matters, the first set of turn arrows per IPVM calc are 220 feet away.
I updated the firmware this morning, and for some reason my exposure settings reverted to Auto. But they were 1/2000 with shutter priority for night.Post your video settings. Lets see what you have going on. I think you need a darker image (e.g. faster shutter speed). Below is one of mine from last night. See how dark it is. @bigredfish 's images are even darker if you look at some of his previous posts.
No, my captures aren't that grainy. I also have my IR at manual at 100%.
Also what are your daytime settings?So 1/2000 should be good. Are you you using a fixed shutter or a range? I also use "Manual" and not shutter priority but I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Here are some of my setting for comparison.
What about your actual video settings? Codec? Bit rate? etc...
