I use this camera mainly to view wildlife behind my house. I have motion detector flood lights that light up the area at night, so I normally don't need the Moonlight Mode, although it does work great in low light.
The attached video was taken at night without using the Moonlight Mode. I'll attach another video showing what a video looks like with Moonlight Mode turned on.
This is an amazing camera and has a very sharp picture. I do wish it had an external mic jack like my SCNC2601. The audio is much louder and more sensitive when using an external mic. An external mic jack is on my wish list for the next smart phone supported model. :-)
Comparing this camera to my SCNC2601, I would say the SCNC2606 has a sharper picture but I do like the SCNC2601 for it's Pan and Tilt capabilities and its external mic and speaker jacks. Both are great cameras and work great locally or over the internet.
The other reviews have covered most things that can be said, so I'll only try to fill in a few more blanks. The quality of the picture is excellent for the price. However, the moonlight mode does (understandably) drop the fps, yet unfortunately it still didn't quite have the sensitivity I had hoped for. There is a street light outside of my home, and although I can see fine with my eyes, the picture is completely dark even in moonlight mode. That's not too much of a problem though since the night-vision version is more appropriate for that use anyway.Read more ›
I decided to try Sharx camera, after reading the reviews on Amazon.
I have been using this camera for a week now. It didn't need rebooting like the other brand. The picture quality is amazing as compared to other two brands that I tried.
The manual may be little a difficult for someone not very familiar with computers. But I believe this is overcome by the excellent customer support.
Excellent Video Qaulity.
Reliable Motion Detection.
Excellent Customer Support.
Good integration with free dynamic dns, for accessing it from outside (linksys required paid service)
Email from Gmail SMTP server using port 465 (Not possible with the other two brands that I tested)
Moonlight mode for night video
Overall a very well balanced and reliable camera.
Initially I had a lot of confusion about which camera to get so I'll briefly list the different cameras and the main differences between them below:
SCNC2606 Wifi Wireless Camera - This is an indoor wireless camera and probably the best option for most indoor applications.
SCNC2607 Wifi Wireless Camera with Infrared Night Vision - Indoor wireless camera. This camera comes with infrared night vision, and is mainly designed to be used in low to dark environments. It does not have as good daytime colors as the 2606. It is not designed to be used outdoors, as it is not sealed, but if you use it in a covered environment like under a porch, and you do not have extremes in temperature and humidity, it might be acceptable as an outdoor camera.Read more ›
