The world's best all around HD camera - that's what the new Panasonic WV-SP509 was declared at the Milestone shootout.
But is it really? That's the goal of this test. We took the Panasonic WV-SV509, testing it against Bosch and Sony's Full HD cameras as well as Axis's new top-tier HD offering - the Q1604.
We performed a series of simultaneous tests in 3 demanding scenes:
Wide FoVs: To see how many details each camera could deliver at increasingly wider Field of Views, from 20 feet wide to 40 feet and finally 80 feet.
WDR: To see how well cameras could handle harsh sunlight.
Low Light: To see how well cameras can see at night.
The sample preview below overviews the range of performance of these cameras at 0.2 Lux:
Below, the preview shows the range of performance at a doorway dealing with harsh sunlight:
Inside, we dig into the details and provide answers on who performs the best in each condition.
