HIKVISION DS-2DF8836IX-AELW Dark Fighter 8MP 4K IR PTZ - External Use, (Weatherproof) IP PTZ Camera. 

Supports face detection, smart object tracking and many other enhancements, comes with an enormous 36x lens and a wiper. 

This is the best PTZ camera made by HIKVISION. 

This is the camera to beat them all with a huge 36x lens, state of the art image processing and mammoth resolution, this camera is overkill in every sense of the work.

A top of the line HIKVISION IP PTZ camera for outdoor use, with 200m IR range, Full 4K image quality surpasses almost any other camera on the market, the native resolution is 4096 x 2160 (8,847,360 pixels in total equates to roughly 8.8MP) stored at up to 25 frames per second, Real Time makes this a great camera for face detection up to 400m away. .

1/1.9" CMOS sensor and a simply colossal 5.7-205.2mm lens this will fill out almost any requirement.

HIKVISION DS-2DF8836IX-AELW PTZ Dome Cameras are able to capture high quality images in low light environment with its black anti-reflective glass.

The black anti-reflective glass increases the IR LED luminosity which can reach up to 200m IR distance.

Embedded with 1/1.9’’ CMOS chip enables true WDR 8.8MP real-time resolution at very low light levels possible.

With the 36X optical zoom, (equates to 5.7-205.2mm) True Day/Night lens, the camera offers more detail over expansive areas than most rival cameras.

Hikvision Dark Fighter series DS-2DF8836IX-AELW smart PTZ dome cameras are able to capture high quality colored images in dim light environment with its cutting-edge low illumination level down to 0.002Lux (colour). Embedded with 1/1.9’’ progressive scan CMOS chip makes true WDR (120dB) and 2MP real-time resolution possible.

With the 36X optical zoom Day/Night lens, the camera offers more details over expansive areas. The Dark Fighter PTZ camera also features a wide range of smart functions, including face detection, intrusion detection, line crossing detection and audio exception, benefiting users with great improvement on security efficiency, more importantly, with key events / objects being recorded for further forensic needs.

These features, combined with smart tracking, which enables the camera to detect any progressively moving object and follow it within the camera’s area of coverage without fault. Smart Defog and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) are further supported to improve image quality in challenging conditions.
