    So Starvis? Is that the same chip as the 2mp "starlight cameras everyone brags on here?
    I sure would like to be able to get the same night quality image as the 2mp starlights with a much higher res 8mp camera for clearer images when you ha e to zoom in on snapshots.

    no, it will not perform well in low light. The starvis designation is meaningless.
    The 1831 and 2831 8mp dahua cams have a larger 1/1.8 sensor and will be significantly better than this one but not as good as the 2mp starlight. Those however art not available in turret format. You need the 2831 if you want SD card and/or varifocal.

    No worry, this is normal, all cams finished hot/cold/waterproof testing before packaged.

    Cameraguy, did the camera come with mounting brackets, if not how did you mount the camera?

    Are you still happy with the camera?

    What kind of NVR are you using?
