oh, these are "newer' 4MP versions?

any thoughts on if anything else is improved?

@ $87 a pop, I'd just as well wait out for 50-60ish on a laview/annke rebadge of the 2MP cams unless we're talking improved other stuff as well.

Also, since it specifically says "English version" I'm assuming these won't blow up on the first firmware update ... maybe?

Hi psumarsh,

Looks like the US inventory of the Annke 2mp rebrands have dried up from what I have read on ipcamtalk.

The IR video capture I saw looked good on ipcamtalk, it was only up temporary iirc.
https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/hyk...-89.27956/

So far I have seen little on details from this particular model ( w/re to firmware updates )

This should be a solid performer as a indoor camera based on Hikvision older 2mp model which was so well liked.

UPDATE: Found it! here's the video from a rebrand of the Hikvision OEM 4mp cube from VorlonFrog ( he posted the original Hikvision OEM cube / Annke thread here )
I expect the original Hikvision 4mp OEM cube to give similar quality results

Why is this called a cube camera? It definitely does not look like a cube.

It's just the general name for this form factor. Box, dome, bullet, turret, cube, covert.

This type of unit is limited in functionality/best for temporary use. Not waterproof, no great mounting options, doesn't last very long on a reasonably-sized 12V battery if you want truly off the grid/"wireless"

Thanks poorgrad

FYI - looks like different internals,

The dome has a smaller imaging chip:
Image Sensor: | 1/3" Progressive Scan CMOS

Thus I would expect the cube camera to do better in quality of image and low light conditions if the chip is the same tech / generation.

$90 (incl tax/ship) is the low end of the 4mp cubes normal price range on ebay,
so not much of an SD unless you were about to buy one anyway...

i'm very pleased with the $40 2mp i got an on SD a few months back.
4mp is really not worth the premium if you plan to connect over wifi,
or expect to use Area of Interest restricted frame size recording.

since cubes run the same firmware, you won't get AOI framing
you can on the not cube model 4mp webcams from hikvision.
AOI in the cube firmware only has to do with compression priority.

a method to get an AOI frame record off the cube cams will be by
using Blue Iris 4 software which requires a PC to keep running.
on their other 4mp webcams, you can do it on firmware alone,
then enjoy it with hik connect app or any browser.

Newegg is not an authorized distributor. I wouldn't buy from them if you are using this camera in a sensitive area. Also there is no warranty with these units and no updates will be provided from Hikvision. Just a friendly heads up. I just finished installing a Hikvision system.

2mp? That's an antiquated resolution. Also there I'll be no updates provided to any Hikvision product sold on newegg

Hi PetSpy,

When I checked most of those ebay sales are from vendors in China and shipping from China.

Thus purchasing from Newegg should provide less grief and faster shipping.

Hi T3ch,

Considering the numerous security issues Hikvision proper has been having, I'm not certain if I would be using a Hikvision in any sensitive area!

LOL, I'm joking - but seriously, I would not ever port forward these cameras ( or other IP cameras ), and for work they would be as isolated as possible from any other networking gear or PCs.

For those wanting to learn more about securing your internet connected cameras take a look at the notes from ipcamtalk

Seventeen years ago, when I wired my home renovation with Cat-5 to every room, I sincerely wish I had placed more drops in each room. WiFi can be convenient, but Power-Over-Ethernet GREATLY simplifies placing a camera. The fact these cameras take advantage of POE is often overlooked.
