We have a lobby we test in but it unfortunately faces north, so isn't particularly harsh. But for panoramics, it might be fine. We also typically test in against an open warehouse door and a man door facing south.
I love Dahua USAs new part numbers! (NOT!) I believe this model is really the same as the older DH-IPC-EBW81200 model, maybe with a firmware update. Maybe one of the Dahua OEM guys can pitch in here and confirm/deny this. If so, we have been using this model for a few years now with OK results. They work well in small overview areas. We generally prefer the Samsung/Hanwha fisheyes. The biggest drawback to the design of the Dahua fisheyes is the silly mounting plate. It is a PITA!
