4K is here, but not without issues.
High prices and poor low light performance constrain adoption.
Now Dahua, one of the two Chinese mega-manufacturers, known for its incredibly low-cost HDCVI line, has entered the 4K market, with an IR bullet, that is a fraction of the cost of 4K offerings.
At such low prices, can Dahua's 4K deliver? Can it match the image quality of bigger brands like Axis and Bosch?
To find out, we tested Dahua's HFW4800E against 4K cameras from Axis (P1428-E) and Bosch (Dinion 8000) in full light, low light, and WDR scenes to see how they compare.
