Yes it was the 5A425s we have purchased along with 5 IPC-HFW5541EP-ZEs
I will probably come back to you with some questions as we switched to Dahua from HIkvision last year (8 years of Hikvision use) as our preferred camera's. I need to learn more about tweaking our existing Dahua cameras to get the best out of them. There are some terms used in this thread that I do not understand , such "Dial in"
When I mention dialing in I mean configuring the camera (settings, rules and overall image) for the FOV, conditions and desired capture targets. Just reach out and if you want me to jump on your system and assist in dialing in at some point, happy to do so.I will probably come back to you with some questions as we switched to Dahua from HIkvision last year (8 years of Hikvision use) as our preferred camera's.

What he said ^
So, I just received one of these cams. How is the firmware status?
Mine came with:

I see that Dahua list's these newer firmwares.
The top one in this list looks suspicious from the naming convention difference.
Any experience with any of these? Thanks.

@Wolf4Ever with that small amount of light on scene is there a reason you want this in color ? Can you utilize another fixed cam with fixed aperture to cross cover the area for any color details you need ? With B&W on the PTZ you'll have more control and we can certainly balance out the 'bloom' you mentioned. Either way, if you want, DM me and we can set some time up for me to jump on your system, take a look and dial in to get this as good as possible for this FOV and location. Let me knowSo, I have been messing with mine for a few days and day is great but I can't seem to get a good picture at night in Color or B&W and at this point color is a little better than B&W to me as the capture goes. Color is ok if forced but wondering why is similar to the 5442 I have to force color and it won't work on auto like the 5442. As it has an adjustable iris/f-stop it should get more light even at 50% then the 5442 with a set iris/f-stop. I have played with the gain/shutter and left iris at 50% as to not blur to much FOV but its noisy and anything over 120 has rolling/hz issues. I don't mind 120 but would like and thought it could do 250. Also, the IR at times is like a spot light and blows out almost everything, any help would be appreciated.
