Does anyone have some hands on experience with the new ColorVu cams? Any thoughts or experiences your willing to share? I'm trying to see if I can be persuaded to pull the trigger on a new purchase.
I should be precise I'm sure my ambient light isnt at .0 lux but to the naked eye its completely dark. I'm barely able to see my chalk hash marks that are 5 feet ahead of me. I do not have a lux meter available right now so I can only measure with the naked eye (I'm not professional by any means either). And yes my shutter speed is at default at 1/12ths. All setting are at default, out of the box. I will post all setting shortly.The default shutter speed for ColorVu is 1/12s. Can you check if that is what you are using? You can see blur in the second video
Do you have a lux meter to check the exact light levels? You say 'complete darkness' and I am sure it's dark but for cameras, it makes a difference if it is 0.2 lux or 2 lux, etc.
Thanks. I am going to setup 6 cams at my house and am trying to decide what I should get. I want a good all around camera and figured I would go with the highest quality possible and do 8mp but i also want good night vision as well and in my research it seems like maybe I should look a t something like starlite or colorvu.The model is DS-2CD2347G1-L 4MM. I purchased it on Alibaba through a reseller who has stock in the US, so shipping was cheap and very fast. It's a genuine Hikvision camera US model that can be upgraded. I could provide you the name of the seller if you'd like privately, just mention my name and they will give you the same discount that I received.
.......I disabled the cameras led light function due to the fact that my house is always lit up with flood lights. But I will test the cameras internal led lights at a later time. So far I'm pleasantly impressed with the camera which only costed me $150.00. I will preform some more tests on it when I have more free time.
