    Hi,

    I am looking for something like this:

    https://www.cctv101.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/ds-2cd2335fwd-ib_1.jpg

    Does Dahua make a black turret camera with IR in the 4mp range?

    I would like to mount this on a tree near the bottom of my driveway and ideally black would blend in much better than a white camera (I think).

    Any thoughts on a particular model?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Just buy the camera you want, a sheet of 220 grit sandpaper and a can of spray paint. enamel is best, in whatever color you think works best. Takes about a half hour per coat and multiple coats are best.

    FYI - I skipped the sand paper and just used primer and latex paint to match my wall / door frame for a Dahua mini-dome wedge camera.

    Hikvision recently came out with some 4MP turrets that use bigger sensors, so they should do better in low-light than the previous 4MP models. IPCT (the forum here) sells them rebranded under their name. Can get them on Amazon (US) or AliExpress (worldwide).
