yes POE, yes it should work fine with most Hikvison NVR's.I am highly interested in this camera myself. It appears to have the same sensor as the Low Light cameras. Question? Does this camera come with the POE style connector? I also assume this camera will work with my Hikvision NVR?
did you notice it has DIGITAL ZOOM also , ie you can zoom past 20x , not sure why you are getting IR glare as IR's are below and each side of the sensor.I find the night picture quite bright at my required min shutter of 1/150 - so I have taken the gain down to 50, and dropped the DNR to 35.
I find a high DNR really drops the picture quality on tracking and moving objects - DNR of 30-35 is a very good compromise especially when you are not running a very high gain.
The software is bit of a mess, there are settings which do not seem to do anything (like exposure value 1 to 5, what does this do?). Also something like the min-focus does not work right. I had mine set to 6m, nothing is ever going to be any closer than 10m to the camera - but I realised after a lot of fault finding, that anything other than 10cm causes an out-of-focus picture when zooming out to Z20.
It is also a shame the image switching settings do not allow you to attached different 'scenes' to different presets (unless I have not understood how to??), it works well for defining different 'scenes' for different times of the day.
There is some slight IR halo/glare on the right side, I don't use IR so not a huge thing for me - Also some lens flare when the sun is to the right & back of the camera <- these could be specific to my camera and location.
Otherwise pretty impressed - especially the tracking of people using the smart events.
I need to get another one of these and I will probably go for the 3MP version.
nice one mate , sorted disabled.Did I mention the software is a bit strange?!?!
Well I thought I had made it up, as I could not find it - finally after going around and around - set the image 'scene' to outdoor - and a new heading appears 'Other', in there you have lens init, and zoom limit - I set it there to 20, and it does not allow you to zoom past Z20.
