Hikvision H.265+ Bullet Tested (2035)

Author: John Scanlan, Published on Jul 24, 2017

Continuing our tests of Hikvision's new low cost Value Plus line, we bought and tested the 3MP DS-2CD2035FWD-I, now including H.265+.

We shot the camera versus competitive models from Axis (M2025) and Hanwha (Wisenet Q) as well as Hikvision's past generation Value Plus 1080p model, the DS-2CD2022WD-I.

Readers should see our previous coverage of this new line, including the low cost 4K DS-2CD2385 and our detailed tests of the new H.265+ smart codec.
