Wow, I couldn't even tell he was wearing glasses until I watched the original video.

Right before they cut out the lights, it is easy to see:

So much for their Blur detection as well... ;)

Perfect, the camera claims to have blur detection, may be it can detect its own self-induced blur ;)

This is an sd camera right? ;)

Blurry or not it actually produces an image so that counts as a win for TYCO.

Would be curious to see how it compares to other low light color cams (Intensifier, Lightfinder, Darkfighter, etc.) ... sure it sucks, but does it suck less than they do?

Intensifier sucks. See: Testing Speco HD IP Intensifier

The newer Lightfinder and Darkfighter cameras, especially with 1/2" imagers are quite impressive and are getting close to rivaling thermal. See: Testing Axis' 1/2" Q1635 Camera and Hikvision Darkfighter 1/2" Imager Camera Tested

As for this camera, testing Tyco is not a high priority. The only draw is that it is now Exacq's preferred camera because of Tyco's ownership. We have tested the existing Tyco Illustras, see: Tyco / Exacq Illustra Cameras Tested
