Yes it would be great if the user had the option to just specify their own naming convention when ftping files to the server.   Folder and filename.

For example I would like to be able to tell the camera just ftp the file to folder /pictures and name the file picture.jpg.  This would cause the file picture.jpg to be continually overwritten.

Very useful when your trying to simply show the latest image on a website.

Thx

Please fix the time/date retention problem.  If power is removed from the camara, it loses
the time.  In this instance the camera cannot connect to a network and needs to save its time when it
is powered off.

Thanks.

Hi Administrator,

I am just a beginner for using this amazing network camera. But what suffer me the most is that that image cannot be rotate 90 degree or 270 degree , clockwise or anti-clockwise, but only flip and mirror. Since i can only get the best angel when the camera is rotated clockwise. So, please please please to have it in your next firmware update.

Image - Add ability to rotate image 90 and 270 degrees in additon to flip and mirror

Big thanks

Added to the list...
Please keep in mind that this list we're compiling is a "wishlist" of functionality requested by the user community and does not necessarily mean D-Link will accommodate any/everything here.

There's some items on the Wishlist that have been addressed as of 1.10 / 1.11
and D-Link deserves the credit for doing so...

•General - The web interface support page links to the Manderine language D-Link Taiwan site (http://www.dlinktw.com.tw/support/
Is now http://support.dlink.com/


•Email Notification - Add an email test button (similar to the DCS-932L)
At the bottom of the email setup screen (snapshot)

•Email Notification - Ability to automatically send multiple snapshots in the same email (rather than separate emails for each snapshot)
Mine sends all six in one email.

•Motion Detection - Motion detection indicator integrated in the web interface to more easily (and accurately) adjust sensitivity
Top left corner of live view.

•Night Mode - Ability to disable IR Illuminator while the camera is in Night Mode (i.e. to enable application of a third party IR Illuminator)
Not sure what functionality was requested, but you can set it to "Manual IR" which should do the trick.

•Recording Video - Increased range for record time settings (i.e. recording video longer than the current 10 second maximum and eliminating the need to wait 30 seconds between snapshot bursts)

You can record up to 65 seconds (5 - pre, 60 - post)
30 second "delay" still seems to be there though

•Recording Video - Ability to capture a snapshot at the same time video is recorded
Again, not sure what's requested but mine sends an email with six snapshots
and I have no problem viewing the recorded video of the very same event.
