This controls the frames per second setting under Video/Audio, for example, set at 50hz you can set the max frame rate to 25fps max for 1080P, set at 60hz allows you to set the max rate to 30fps.
Another unique feature on this camera is the micro SD card slot and ability to play back recordings.
Line-in means it takes an amplified microphone, but this requires a separate power source, but you can use mic-in which takes a standard microphone, no power needed.
The Image settings screen is where you set the image settings like brightness, contrast and exposure.
For example, if you chose 1080P, then you have to click on 16:9, if you chose 3MP mode, then click on 4:3. What’ different here than the previously reviewed Hikvision cameras are the audio controls at the bottom.
The speaker volume control in the lower left, the microphone on/off icon in the lower right.
The IR LEDs are not partially blocked like they are on the mini dome, something that required a larger form factor to accomplish. This is what the web interface looks like when you first log in.
There’s options to take a snapshot, manually record, chose a stream and you can chose the aspect ratio which should be automatic, but it’s not.
It’s a full 3-Axis dome, has a micro SD card slot with in-camera playback, two-way audio, alarm inputs but also has a nice wide range varifocal lens from a very wide 2.8mm to a good telephoto 12mm.
As with the other Hikvision cameras I’ve reviewed, the IP address comes from the factory set to 188.8.131.52.
