Robb, thanks for sharing!
Did you notice they are listing H.265 for these cameras? :)
I am wondering if this is WiseNet III, if it has true WDR, what the price is, when it's actually shipping, etc. Let us check on our side and if anyone has any info, please share.
Simply because of H.265, we would consider testing this.
We checked pricing and availability on distribution.
The 5MP does not appear to be shipping yet. Its online / street price is likely to be in the ~$900 range, which will be to roughly $300 more than the 1080p IR vandal dome model.

Please note that the datasheet specs for the camera on the above link from "Undisclosed 1 Manufacturer" are for a SNV-8081R and it does not specify H.265. It only shows H.264 and MJPEG. The specs also say it is a 1080p camera, not 5MP.
Update: Shipping estimate on the new H.265 domes is now October. We will update here if anything else changes.
Update: Shipping estimate is now December. No idea what is going wrong here.
Production shipments to all of our distributors will start at the end of next week or November 30th depending on the holiday schedule. The SNV-8081R is 5MP 30FPS Vandal IP66 dome camera, and has multiple compression technologies available (MJPEG, H.264 and H.265). We are looking forward to all of our partners to support the new H.265 compression now and in the near future.
