Good camera for security use
I use this camera with other professional cameras for bird and wildlife video as well as general security. Please note - sharpness is determined by the light of the site- not just this camera. More about that below if you wish to read on. For now I will say that this camera, being "powered", has a low noise level and a high sensitivity in a 40-90 degree cone to the the general direction it is pointing. It is very clear but does not have (or need) outstanding fidelity. It has DSP (electronic iris control) to even out the too bright or to dark images and that is a good feature. It is ideal for security uses and the price is right! Is it good enough to capture the night vision you WANT to record with your security DVR? It depends on how well your object reflects the infra red light . You will just have to try it . In a nutshell, this one seems to be a very good value.
