IP Camera 4K test

We tested and compared 4K IP cameras from Axis, Hikvision, Samsung, and Sony.

We tested the Axis P1428-E, the Hikvision DS-2CD4A85F-IZH, the Samsung PNO-9080R, and the Sony SNC-VM772R.  We tested the resolution, low light capability, signal-to-noise, and wide dynamic range.

We also looked at the latest Sony SNC-VB770, which if you can afford it, is the best 4K IP camera we have seen.  Here are the results of our testing.

We compared camera resolution, low light sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and actual usage in a specific application. Of course, these are not the only characteristics to consider, but we have found these to be the most important in many applications.  Here are the results:
