Axis Lowest Cost 1080p Camera (M3045-V) Tested

By IPVM Team, Published Jun 13, 2016, 09:39am EDT

We bought the new 1080p Axis M3045-V and tested it against Hikvision and Samsung to see how it compared.

This is the second in our series (starting with the Axis M3044-V Test and concluding with the M3046 4MP test).

Below is a preview of the comparative low light performance:
