In the past year, Axis has advocated improved image quality versus more 'megapixels'. The two cameras most central to that are the Q1602 Lightfinder camera and the Q1604 WDR camera. In this report, we share test results of the Q1604.
We focused our testing in the two areas we have found the most challenging and differentiating for surveillance cameras:
- Wide Dynamic Range Scenes - For example, a person opening a door walking inside a building during the day.
- Low Light Scenes - A dark scene with minimal ambient lighting
In these tests, we compared the Axis Q1604 to Bosch, Pelco and Sony camera as well as the Axis P1344 and the Axis Q1602.
Below is a sample of the image comparisons we conducted:
In our test, we examined:
