Night Image is Blurry

Q: Nothing to recognize in the night.

A: A few days ago I bought the IN-5907HD, at first I was very impressed with the performance of the camera. But when it was night, I realize that I can not recognize anything.

Blurring of moving objects always occurs when the lighting conditions force the camera to use longer exposure times. As soon as the exposure time becomes so long that the person can move a few centimeters between two shutters, the image will be blurry ("ghosting").

Motion Blur

To counter this, you can once improve the illumination in the monitored area (external headlight), and / or position the camera so that the person must move directly to the camera to cross the area (the effect is always strongest when the person moves across the area).

In the camera model IN-9008 Full HD, we have another sensor installed by the company Panasonic, which handles the situation a little differently. Here you have i.d.R. a much darker (often a little noisy) video image - this is accepted in order to keep the exposure time as low as possible and to resolve movements accordingly better. A longer discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of this technique can be found in our forum.
