Welp, you make my job so much easier...as I can now pretty much scrap my internal testing! I love and appreciate these tests, but I feel we are missing some real world applications. I'd like to see more outdoor head to head images for future tests (where my company deploys the vast majority of our cameras). Obviously this new P3245 is a great value vs the Q3515 (better color, detail, IR, etc)...but my initial testing does show that is does comparatively suffer (slightly) under certain lighting conditions at night. This is a very important detail when spec'ing cameras for our typical client/applications.
As shown below, the lights are blown out underneath the awning with the P3245LVE. The bulb underneath this awning is a LED, but I think the blowout is due to the florescent lighting in the hallway (wdr turned off and this is the best I could get it to look via tuning). Just my two cents. All in, after seeing your results...compared to mine...we are definitely making the switch.
Quite amazing that this P3245 tested so well. I am inclined to think that the P3245 would have ended in the top three in the Color Low Light Mega Camera Shootout, Even better compared to the P1375 and the Q1798. Amzzing, cause Axis is cannabalizing its other products with this P3245.
I noticed that too. I suppose if it's set to low torque it should be fine, but I'm always concerned about cross-threading. I never use power tools to tighten dome fasteners but then again I'm not installing 100 of them at a time.
