Hanwha ExtraLux Camera Tested

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Jan 11, 2018

Hanwha has released the latest in their Wisenet X line, the "extraLUX" series, claiming to "capture crystal clear, true-color images in low-light conditions without IR LEDs, regardless of the environment or time of day", equipped with a 1/2" sensor and integrated F0.94 lens.

But can this new series really live up to these bold claims? We bought and tested Hanwha's XNV-6085R against competitive 1/2" cameras from Axis and Hikvision as well as Axis' larger imager Q1659 to find out, examining:

  • Color low light performance
  • Integrated IR performance
  • IR range and pattern
  • Full light imaging
  • Physical features
  • Bandwidth consumption

See our full results inside.
