Issue 6 seems to be a matter of bad camera focusing. Your 4K-X looks like it is soft at infinity. The 4K-T looks fine.
Yep exactly, this is why one of the key things I’m having Dahua focus on (see what I did there ;)) is the calibration of the lens and focus point as well

Interested to see night performance on this model
Yes I'll be doing my usual full rundown but will wait for the next FW release and update from Dahua on the issues before doing it. With the issues currently on the pre-production model it would not do it justice or give any of us the right expectation in its current state in my opinion.

Like the disco floor on the grass! Hopefully fixed in the FW Update.

Also, I noticed straight away the poor focus. Could be a DOF issue as doesn't look too bad close to the camera so maybe the focal point is just wrong. Hopefully can be fixed and hopefully not the lens. Looks a little contrasty too although side by side with the 4KT, doesn't look to be a lot of difference. Showing pormise.

You aren't kidding. That was almost painful to watch. I guess that's why it's called "pre-production".

Great thing is by getting early pre production units we get to influence the better end product (HW & SW) which hopefully leads to a better experience for all of us :)

I appreciate @EMPIRETECANDY and Dahua working on this with me and look forward to the next release for testing which I hear is now in process of being worked by Dahua.

will update when I have the new release in hands

Very keen to see how this camera, with updated firmware progresses. Early days, but looks like it has potential to be a fantastic camera. If it performs well, certainly will be on my wish list.
