I have received this camera in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This has the new larger 8mp 1/1.8" sensor, which should provide a better nighttime picture vs the 1/2.8" 8mp sensors.

Hmmmm. I really want to see the night time video from this puppy. 1/1.8 sounds promising. I am a little surprised it need 2 amps (24 watts) though, at least according to the label.

I will be interested in this myself. Particularly the night recordings. I am sure the daytime video will be quite good.

.2 amps is a little more reasonable. My tired old eyes couldn't resolve the decimal place, Time for 4K glasses I guess.

Looking over all the specs, I couldn't see if this is Auto Focus (or Zoom). I did see one entry where "Focus Control - Fixed" was listed. Is this auto focus or must it be manually focused after adjustment? Thanks.

Looking forward to this one Looney. Are the IR LEDs outside the rectangular lens opening? 2 on top and 2 on bottom?

@awsum140 as a quick POE draw comparison, both of mine pull between 4.7w and 5.8w on average in use. HTH

Is anyone else having issues getting this camera to work with blueiris?......it's works fine with other products....
Nope, fired right up in BI.
In BI, set the ip address, enter the user name and password you set in the camera, then click find/inspect. That's it.
Make sure you gave the cam a unique IP address in the cam.

Thanks.....the camera works fine so it must be something down stream. I was wondering if there was any special blue Iris settings but apparently there is not...thanks
