    I have decided to order one of these myself and have contacted Andy. I have the perfect spot for it to be mounted "upside down" as shown in the above YouTube video. It will replace one of my Huisun V10 PTZ cameras. The Huisun has been a good camera but the night time video is not keeping up with the times.

    It will most likely arrive sometime after the Chinese new year. I will keep everyone informed.

    This is the camera that it will replace. I will mount it on the same beam so that the lens is peaking over the roof. I will also make up a custom bracket painted white of course and I will move the location higher up the beam somewhat. Husuin PTZ.JPG

    You might not need to make a custom mount. It barely exists on Dahua's newly broken website, but they make a mount the PFB730W that does just what you need.

    Might not be the easiest to acquire as it isn't very common. Hopefully @EMPIRETECANDY can get it.

    Just wondering. Why not mount it at the peak of the roof in an upright position on the PFB730W wall mount. That way, you could see everything you see now, plus more as it's now clearing the peak.

    I have this cam on order too, from Andy, along with the PFB730W wall mount. It is possible it will arrive before Chinese New Year, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that.

    Good question. The main purpose of this camera is to watch the street on the side of my house where the camera is pointed. I live on a 4 corner intersection and have a total of 15 cameras around the house and have things pretty well covered. I will move it a little higher and closer to the peak. I am seriously thinking of mounting one of these in the front of house to replace another camera. I was just scoping that out this afternoon. I like how this camera is designed and it gives me more options.

    Edit: I may just go ahead and order the bracket and see how it works out.

    Andy just confirmed that the bracket is on order along with the camera. That gives me another mounting option.

    I have one on my testrig. I put this one on roof weather/skycam purpose. This is almost exactly same as my sd59230 that I also have.

    Thank you for posting the pictures. Does the RJ-45 connector stick out the bottom of the bracket?

    Are the bright lights in the last picture, the IR LED's? Hopefully that's just how they show up in a picture, and aren't actually that bright to the eye.

    Good. I did not know how long the wires were. So this will hook up like my Huisun V10 PTZ that it will replace.

    Smartphone camera sensor is sensitive to IR light so thats why they shine like that. You can still easily see these light with your own eye if you watch directly to the camera.

    Any more news on this one please in terms of feedback?

    Silly question but I noticed Dahua seem to have a different section for network positioning cameras - what is the difference between a standard PTZ and a network positioning PTZ camera?

    It's slower but is that literally it? Is it an additional protocol maybe or just the fact they can look up as well as down?

    The IR range is shorter than some of the other PTZ cameras which do >300m but it doesn't seem as though that would be related to the network positioning side.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's not noticeable slower than SD59230-HNI, fast enought :). That PFA-focus is joke. It is same as my SD59230-HNI. Also camera has chromatic aberration on high zoom levels. I think that I don't keep this one. Optic on SD59230 is better.

    Interesting. I do have the one on order and potentially locations for 2 more if this one works out. I am not really interested in the 25X power of this camera but maybe around 15X or so because of the area I live in.

    Here is little short demo what you guys can except. There is little chromatic aberration in these clips. Nighttime videos are in color mode. I don't have time to edit better demo. This is made very fast for you :).

    Nice demo. Thanks for putting that together, especially the sky shots.

    One quick question, please. How noisy is the pan and tilt function? I'm hoping it's quieter than the SD49225. Thanks.

    It is more quiet than my SD59230. I say it is silent comparing that one :).

    Its enabled all those clips. Not so good video for PFA demo but maybe when zooming in Canal Digital it should do better job?

    Looks like mine will be showing up in early April. I will away the last week of March and told Andy to avoid shipping it so it will not arrive in that time period.
