A 5MP Progressive Scan CMOS Image Sensor powers this ColorHunter camera, which records clear 3K video at a steady 30 frames per second. To give you an idea of its power, the camera can capture facial details up to 60 feet with an ultrawide 80-degree angle. Advanced image features, including True WDR, BLC, HLC, and 3DNR, offer enhanced video quality in varied lighting conditions. With H.265+ video encoding, you can enjoy up to 70% bandwidth savings compared to H.264, ensuring efficient data transfer and storage.
Starlight Video


Starlight technology improves the image sensor within the camera responsible for video capture. With a lux rating of 0.001, this camera excels at capturing color video, even in low-light areas. Starlight sensors are larger than traditional ones, offering enhanced brightness at night to boost the ability to see in color at night. Simply put, Starlight cameras are superior at maintaining color mode and capturing vivid color videos at night when there's minimal ambient lighting.
