i think its more their 265 compression algorithm/hardware then it is the sensor. oddly enough VLC hates the recordings, yet the native windows player has zero issues.
when i cast it to my 4k tv there are a couple of frames that would be a better ID, but yeah still not great with moving objects at night..
yeah to be honest im torn.. i do like quality gear.. but my place is locked up tight.. alarmed up the wazoo.. and in a really good neighborhood.
im looking at nearly 4x the price for a hikvision 8mp equiv system with an NVR.. so yeah nah.. in my case i think i might stick with the reo...
thoughts on this price point.. surely it beats the likes of swann ect?.. ive never seen even daylight stuff that is usable with that brand.
out of the box tuning was hopeless though.. IR was washed out with the cams that close, so its why i turned it off on the left cam. sharpness was too high.. their compression was noisy AF with high sharpness..
here is one grab from nvr_left_1 above..

when i turned around.. so i was still moving, but not laterally. - however out of the box it was a 1/10. the default tune of the camera is just shit.
to keep it or not..?
im probably just going to keep it.. i still get notifications even at night with person recognition. to me i cant justify the 4x price for the possibility of a clear ID (hoodies/hats anyone?)..
