So has anyone got one yet? There aren't many hits on Google and no AliExpress dealers have them listed.

No, I haven't got any. What sort of prices have you found?

I've got two of the 3MP varifocal model, which is a step up from the fixed lens 3MP models (I've got 4mm and 6mm.) The image is a lot sharper, but the varifocals do seem to be slightly less sensitive in lower light and will switch to night mode sooner.

you can set night more to be based on a schedule (time) and not lighting amount if that helps.
I am ordering the 4MP Darkfighter, I will post some images.

I've got some mains powered sensor lights that come on if there's any activity in that area and their extra light puts it back into day/colour (after the shortest delay setting which is 5 seconds IIRC.) That's good enough for my purposes.

Ok. I may try it as well. I got three dauha 2mp starlight. Just looking for a nice daytime image and night time performance to boot. I seen someone telling you that the 4mp darkfighter are useless. Not too sure about that. What do you think this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07KQWY1J8/ref=sxts_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1546143733&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65
I posted a thread comparing a non DF 8mp hikvision camera to one of the 4m DF models.
My oppinion is that the sensor on the DF models is superior and can capture motion much better than the non DF. This is because you can run then at a smaller apperture a d get similar lighting results.

I am not a fan of dome really. Especially when it rains.
