Needs an auto-iris,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Foscam FI8904W Outdoor Wireless/Wired IP Camera with 15 - 20 Meter Night Vision and 2.8mm Lens (50° Viewing Angle) - Silver (Electronics)
I should have read some of the other reviews before buying this. I also have a Foscam FI8918W (indoor, wireless, pan-and-tilt). I figured the image quality of this camera would be comparable, but there's no ability to turn off the IR, nor does the camera auto-adjust for different light levels. I am using the camera as a weather cam, and when it's clear and sunny, it's too bright and I have to adjust the brightness and contrast, and then when it becomes overcast the image is waaaay too dark. The build quality seems reliable enough for outdoor use, though. I'm still looking for a quality wireless IP camera that is weatherproof, but this will do in the meantime.
