Hanwha Wisenet Q 4MP Tested (QNV-7080R)

By Ethan Ace, Published on Nov 03, 2016

The 4MP trend continues, now with Hanwha Techwin / Samsung in their latest Wisenet Q series.

We bought one of these models, the QNV-7080R, to see how it stacks up against 4MP competitors from Axis and Hikvision in full light, low light (below), WDR, bandwidth, and more.

In this test, we share our results of the 4MP QNV-7080R, a 4MP outdoor motorized zoom model, the highest end dome in the Wisenet Q line. Users should also see our tests of the low end 1080p QND-6010R as well as Wisestream Smart Codec/H.265 performance.

All around, it looks like a pretty good camera. Would like to see how it performs for a few months though. Factor in price and it really outperforms the Axis.
