4MP usage is increasing noticeably, as IPVM 2018 resolution statistics show.
And low-cost, fixed focal cameras, are popular for budget applications. While this segment is a stronghold of Chinese manufacturers, Korean manufacturer Hanwha has the QNV-7010R, which is similar in price to their Chinese competitors.
To see how the 7010R performs vs its 1080p counterpart, the 6010R, we bought and tested this entry-level model, examining:
- Full light performance
- Low light performance
- Integrated IR coverage
- Integrated IR range
- WDR performance
- Smart codec bitrates
- Physical construction
Note: This is the first in a series of 4MP fixed focal lens testing, with entries from Axis, Dahua, Hikvision and more coming (offer your 4MP model test suggestions here) and concluding with a shootout later this summer.
