Axis has released a new generation of, for them, relatively low cost M30 series cameras, claiming to deliver "sharp video quality even in poor light".
We bought and tested the new 1080p M3065-V and 4MP M3066-V, to compare to their last generation, the M3045-V and M3046-V, as well as Hikvision's Performance series, to see how they perform, including:
- How does image quality compare in full light (~300 lux) and low light (~2 lux/~1 lux) scenes?
- How do they perform in wide dynamic range scenes?
- What are the hardware differences between the new and old generation M30s?
- How does bandwidth compare in day and night scenes?
