Customer Reviews:

  • I hope the one i got is damaged.. EDIT: Fixed camera.
    I got this bad boy in yesterday, i plugged it into my tv to test it out, daytime resolution is nothing to scream about but i really got it for nighttime duty.

    i got off work, came home, plugged it in to test out the nighttime and it was horrendous. I could almost make out a tree 30 feet away, which is terrible considering it claims 100 foot Ir range. When aimed down my street all i see is a couple pinpoint glows from the neighbors house and what can only be described is some sort of a fog. Indoor use was a little bit better but still extremly shoddy.

    I live at the end of a cul-de-sac about the length of a football field, and bought this camera to help deter or catch recent vandals. This camera was intended to be aimed out to the middle of the culdesac, but the night time image is so bad it is completly unsusable for this application. it would make a decent daytime camera. ... i think the IR mode is broken.


    im in the process of trying to return it, i think ill just try another camera.


    EDIT: so the other day i tried the camera's night vision again and still saw that fog. After a closer examination of the camera the black foam grommet/isolator thatwraps around the lens and pushes against the plastic front outer shield looked to be a bit uneven. I took off the front lens and tried it and the nightvision worked fine. I picked up a piece of rubber hose from autozone that was the correct size, cut it to fit, then put some heavy duty adhesive on the rubber grommet to make sure it grabbed onto the outer shield.. This fixed the issue.

    So, just a heads up, if anyone buys a camera and the nightvision is completly foggy, check that piece. It is there to prevent IR light from reflecting off the front shield and back into the camera lens, if it does not push aagainst the front shield evenly and there is a gap, IR will flood back in and mess the nightvision up.

    That said, with the camera working properly, the nightvision is still slightly washed out (the camera seems to have trouble adjusting to a dark image) but the pic quality is good enough for nearly 100ft of IR nightvision as advertized.

    I would give this a 4/5 if it were not for the fact it came defective. such a small thing leads me to wonder about the manufacturers quality assurance.

    Also, take a good look at the page before you buy anything here. While i was lucky and fixed the camera, it said "No returns or refunds on this product" under the Technical Details portion. This was in a place that would be easy to miss, i never would have bought this camera if i couldnt return it.

    Anyways, all in all, the camera works as specifid and performs pretty well. for 170 bucks, it iss not a bad deal.

    Be aware, the 6mm lens is somewhat zoomed in, this is USELESS for close range surveillance, i wouldnt use this for anything closer than 60-70 feet, if you need something close go for a 3.5mm lens or a fisheye lens....more info
