Samsung 'Q' Low-Cost 1080p Dome Tested

Author: John Scanlan, Published on Oct 10, 2016

The most competitive part of the market is for low-cost cameras.

Hanwha Techwin / Samsung has released its new low-cost Q series to go after this segment.

We bought two of these new Wisenet Q models and tested them against competitive domes from Axis (M3045) and Hikvision (2522), as well as previous Samsung models (Lite and Wisenet III), to see how they perform and full light, low light, and WDR scenes, as well as configuration, installation, and bandwidth consumption.

In this test, we share our results of the 1080p QND-6010R, the lowest cost model in the line. Coming soon, we will release reports on the top of the line QNV-7080R (4MP IP66 motorized zoom), as well as H.265 and smart codec performance.

How did it perform in low light without the IR illuminators on? Reason I ask is because I have a QNV-7080R that doesn't do as well in darkness as a SNV-7084R when the IR's are all off.

I can believe that the QNV-7080R didn't do as well as the 7084R. We've seen poor low in pretty much all 4MP cameras tested without IR, compared to 2MP and 3MP options. See our test: 4MP Low Light Weakness Tested

I should add that I got excessive motion blur in full light when the QNV-7080R's WDR was turned on.

We definitely did not see notable motion blur with WDR turned on. I can try and dig up a clip.

We actually have a test of the 7080R coming soon. We tested both at once.

Make sure the minimum shutter speed is set to 1/30. The default is 1/5 and can cause bluring.

Shutter was at 1/30 and 1/60 second. My new 5MP SNV-8081R cameras also blur when WDR is on. The older 2MP SNV-6084 and 3MP SNV-7084 don't have this issue.

Is the web interface a no-plug-in html 5 one, like the new Axis one?

Disclosure: I am a Hanwha Employee

Yes, the web interface is plug-in free now.

Full disclosure he may be a part of the organization but we really don't like him!

Haha!

good one Farva! Haha
