Hikvision 6MP Camera Tested (DS-2CD4565-IZH)

By John Scanlan, Published on Feb 27, 2018

In the next installment of our ongoing testing of 5MP/6MP cameras, we test the Hikvision DS-2CD4565F-IZH, a 'Smart Series' vandal dome combining higher resolution, a larger 1/1.8" imager and integrated IR.

We bought and tested the 4565 to see how it performs, examining:

  • Physical features
  • Installation issues
  • IR coverage
  • IR range
  • Low light image quality
  • Full light image quality
  • WDR performance
  • Bandwidth
  • VMS support

For other tests in this series, see our reports on the Axis Q3517-LVE, Dahua N52BM3Z, and Hanwha XNV-8080R. Up next is our shootout.

Do you ever open up the camera to see what imaging sensor model a camera uses? This is really poor performance compared to any camera I've seen claiming 5MP, and they are claiming 6. This feels like another game playing tactic to take market share from manufacturers who produce quality; releasing a camera 1MP higher than industry standard at $100-$200 and betting on the ignorance of the end user (and dealer). Reminds me of the analog 480, 500, 540 game last decade.

Before making a purchase like this I would advise you (IPVM) to use the dealers in your network to make sure you are buying the right stuff.

When it comes to MP, Varifocal motorzoom dome, this is the wrong choice.
In fact, it had no WDR and is outpriced enormously compared to other Hik models.
A 'simple' DS-2CD2755FWD-IZS is the actual 6MP dome we would sell.

The 4-line models are phasing out and will be replaced with a newer productline anyways. The main reason for not using a 2-line model is more network and VCA options.

Money and time wasted on this one..

 

[EDIT, the 6MP is not in production yet, for now it's 5MP. Still falls in the described category of 'testing of 5MP/6MP cameras']

Jonathan, we selected the 4565 because it is the latest 5MP/6MP model available on Hik's higher end line. If we had put 2755 up against Axis Q series and Hanwha's Wisenet X, we would be getting the opposite object regarding how we could possibly test a Value Series camera against others' high end. 

For the record, the 4565 still shows a shiny "New" badge on Hikvision's HQ site:

As well as the USA site:

The fact that the 4 line series is being phased out is moot. It exists and is listed as new. When Hikvision releases something new in the high end, we will fairly compare it to competitors.

That being said, we may look at the 2755 or 2H55 cameras in the meantime, if there's interest.

Hi 

Please! IPVM continue to keep them honest!!! 

IPVM rocks!!!

This level of thoroughness is IME unmatched.

Thank you!
