Testing Samsung 1/2" Wisenet III Camera

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Dec 01, 2015

Continuing our series of 1/2" super low light tests, in this report we look at Samsung's 1/2" Wisenet III model, the SNB-6005. 

We tested it against other large imager super low light models from Axis, Dahua, and Hikvision, and past 1/3" low light performers from Axis and Samsung (Wisenet III) to see how it compares on low light scenes ranging from 0.02 to 0.3 lux.

Below is an excerpt from our dark test of all 5 cameras:

Along with these scenes, we checked bandwidth, configuration, and other factors to see how it compares to these low cost leaders and others.
