Next Gen 5MP / 6MP Camera Shootout (Axis vs Dahua vs Hanwha vs Hikvision)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 28, 2018

Many manufacturers have released new generation 5MP / 6MP cameras that tout super low light, WDR and other features historically typical in 1080p but not 5MP / 6MP. In our recent series of tests we tested four of these models from major manufacturers against their own comparable 1080p version:

Now, in this shootout, we put them head to head and report on how they compare. Inside we report on:

  • IR performance
  • Color low light performance
  • WDR performance
  • Full light image quality
  • Price comparison
  • Physical comparison
  • Advanced features
