D-Link IP Cameras for Home > DCS-2330L

Poor night vision

(1/3) > >>

Island:
Greetings fellas- Well, I have about 8 D-link cameras inside and outside my home. All work great for the most part. I have 2 D-link 2332L cameras, one in the back yard and one at the front door. I've read so many bad reviews about this camera but honestly both cameras have been working great for the last 2 years. So, I decided to buy another one for my driveway, but I could not find any online, so I opted to go with the 2330L. I really got a good deal on a brand new one online, so I purchased it and got it set up. It's basically the exact same as the 2332L, except that the night vision is pretty terrible.

 I have found this to be a verified issue now, as I have scoured the internet and have read all of the issues with the 2330L and night time mode. My 2332L cameras have very good night mode. I have verified that the camera is actually functioning correctly and if I set the day/night mode manually, I do hear a click and it does change on screen. My firmware is up to date as well. The issue is that I can barely see 5 feet in front of the camera when night mode is active. I left the settings all on default in the camera software. Could there be a setting that I need to change to get better IR illumination? I appreciate any replies. Thanks!

 try the denoise option.

echandler:
Try firmware v1 or 1.01, I reverted back to those because the shutter can go down to 1/8th (which causes a lot of ghosting but works pretty well). V1 has a lot of ghosting even during the day, here it is at night (sharpness set at 1, max gain at 12db ). The gate is barely visible with some of the newer firmware versions.

edit: Here is an example of the "ghosting" during the day, it appears to be fixed in 1.01 (starts near the middle of the clip):

Have you tried the "low noise" option for night time?

echandler:
Just tried it, the picture isn't brighter, just more smudged looking.

edit: Turning up the denoise setting does help when the max gain is set to 24 (which does make it a lot brighter), but the current settings work "good" for both day and night.
