You can set it to 1080P at 30fps if you wish, but for me, I like to get all pixels possible so all images shown later are in 3MP mode. I set all my cameras up to use the Windows Time Service at time.
The reason is so that when an event occurs, my PC, my NVR software, my cameras all have the same time down to the second.
First, this camera can be adjusted in 3-axis, meaning it can be mounted in any orientation and be aimed as you wish where the mini dome is a 2-axis camera and must be mounted level facing up or down, not for example, surfaced mounted on a wall or on a slanted eave.
I was not able to get this to work with my NAS, but some people I talked to have.
I would expect them to iron out any bugs and have this working more consistently in a future firmware release. I mounted the camera with a 4mm lens in the usual spot, under the eave of my garage.
Most of the choices are the same, but placed in sort of submenus. Iris Mode is irrelevant as this is a fixed iris model. WDR worked very well as it did on other Hikvision cameras.
The first one is Image Adjustment and that’s where you tweak how the image looks like brightness, saturations, hue, sharpness and such. I did find that it did not have a profound effect on noise at night as it did in previous firmware versions.
The Video Adjustment sub-menu is also an important menu to visit.
This is where you setup if your country uses PAL or NTSC (USA) standard.
As before, you can click on the image to see the full size 3 megapixel image straight from the camera.
Also as before, I set the max exposure time to 1/30th which is a good compromise between low light performance and movement.
The next step is to setup the camera in the Images menu.
