    Camera and Lens Recommendations

    I've done three of these and all were happy! http://www.intellicamusa.com/product_info.php?products_id=101 As for cameras there's a lot to choose from. I've had very good results with b&w box type cameras, I find thrm to have a lot of detail and work really well in low light. Around my home I'm using some .05 lux b&w cams with a single sv light 30ft away, and the area is easy to see. You can find this type of camera on Ebay for about $25.~$40. each. A nice fuji lens will run about the same. I've used this model and they worked well ; http://cgi.ebay.com/4-Panasonic-CCTV-Security-Camera-WV-BP554-Hi-Res-new_W0QQitemZ110275715951QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item110275715951&_trkparms=39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14.l1318 GL.

    IR LEDs emit visible red light?

    Yes. this is normal. You can change them out for 950 nm, but some cameras/lens wont work right with the higher wave lenth.

    Intellicam G4-8XLA Possible Purchase - feedback?

    There Hikvision with intellicam firmware and a 3 year warranty plus Top notch support. I've only used the RTA series. I found it to do more than I ever needed. I'm happy with my 4 ch AverMedia, but if I needed more than four channels, I'd go with a G4!
  5. I had a hard time finding any info on it. I found a PDF manual and a 2004 panasonic catalog listing it as there top B&W camera. When current it ran over $500.
  6. WELL, now I know a little about it! It's the sharpest daylight camera I've ever seen(analog) with good dynamic range. At night, its a little more noisy than other High rez B&W cameras of today but it has a gain up function thats outstanding! It can amplify the darkest area and give a good usable image.
  7. I'd like to know if any of you have used one of these? if so, is it a good camera? is it really old or really new? I cant seem to find much if any info on this unit. A friend has one and wants me to buy it. Thanks.

    Lorex SG6080 Weatherproof Camera Questions

    Stay away from any brand of cmos camera. Lorex is no better or worse than any of the other marketing big brands out there. You'll pay more for the brand name and you'll get less. I'd say any new camera for $22. will be junk. If you need good night time viewing? You can get a used high rez b&w box cam with lens for around $20. off Ebay.
  9. D1 = 704x480 in the ntsc video standard. 720x480 = the ntsc DVD video standard. So the RTA/D1 will playback 30 fps D1 on all ch.

    Recommendations for a DVR

    I've tried a bunch and the G4 are a good value. http://www.intellicamusa.com/product_info.php?products_id=101

    AverMedia 1304net is worth the money!

    You make some good points! I did feel the G4-RTA was a better unit but it cost me double what the Aver cost and it was only a little better in some ways and a lot better in features I do not need. I was looking at the future in terms of long term value, meaning I spend a little now and a little in a few years as to keep up with changing technologys.
  12. I've installed a couple of these for friends and they have no complaints http://www.intellicamusa.com/product_info.php?cPath=18_29&products_id=100
  13. Great brand, but your better off getting a G4-RTA D1 as its made by HikVision but has Intellicams firmware and three year warranty and free DDNS service. I even think the G4 cost a little less. http://www.intellicamusa.com/index.php?cPath=18_29
  14. I've done a bunch of research in the last month and the RTAD1 that I helped my friend install in his complex looks fantastic! I had a non D1 4 ch the the D1 series looks much better. In fact it was hard to tell weather you were watching the live view or recorded view. For the money, I really can see anything else blowing it out of the water. I dont see why Canada would be an issue.
