Allow for the same type of FTP upload as available w/ the DCS-930L. I purchased this camera to upload images to Weather Underground and have not figured out a way to do it. It works fine with my 930L.

I believe some people have referred to this as FTP overwrite. I need to be able to upload an image of the same name once per minute. Like I said, just like the feature available in the 930L.

Recent items are highlighted in blue.

If any items in the wishlist were fixed by the latest firmware, please post and I'll update!

It would be nice if we could save to daily folders on the FTP server like I can with my DCS-933L. It would make it much easier to manipulate and organize the captures. It does organize captures on the SD card to daily folders but not to the FTP server. Can that be done?  Thanks   ;D

I get  an event log for every capture. It doubles the amount of files on my FTP server. It would be nice if we could control whether or not we get event logs.

Hi,

First off I want to say I am really pleased with this camera I just have a couple of gripes which would be great if they could be addressed in the next firmware release:

1.  Under event setup-media.  The the "Pre-event recording", "Maximum duration" and "Maximum file size", it would be great if we were not limited on these.  If we could enter any figure that would be great.  Because of this limit at the moment I'm having to run my webcam through webcamxp as I can specify my own limits there but at the cost of poor video quality with no audio.

2.  Under event setup-recording settings.  Again the limit to be removed from "Total cycling recording size" would be good and instead of drop down boxes on "Size of each file for recording" and "Time for each file for recording" if we could have input boxes where we could type a figure (again unlimited).

These two changes would really make the world of difference as to how I use this webcam, as I'm having to run my webcam through another piece of software to get these settings at the moment.  I would really like the webcam to be able to do it without the need of third party software.

Many many thanks in advance

Kind Regards

James

Not to nitpick, but this class of cameras is referred to as "network cameras", not "webcams". Webcams are typically defined as cameras that cannot operate independently of a host PC and are tethered to the host PC via USB.

Sorry I wasn't to clear, I meant I am using the 2132l with webcamxp as a network camera which lets me use whatever limit I wish but it uses a lot of system mem/cpu and the video/picture quality is rubbish and with no audio.

Thanks again

Just curious. I understand the DCS-2132L has a lot more capabilities than (for example) the DCS-933. But... can't they use the DCS-933 firmware as a base and build the DCS-2132L firmware from there? I have both cameras and the DCS-933 works well and has feature that could be useful in all the firmwares. The DCS-933 firmware has the capability to save in daily folders. You can customise the label that shows on the monitor. In the MyDlink+ app, I can change and save the motion detect areas on the fly in my DCS-933 and DCS-930 but can't do anything but look at the camera view with the DCS-2132L. I paid double the price for the DCS-2132L than the other cameras but can do less. The DCS-2132L firmware is clunky and slow compared to the DCS-933 and 930.
