Panasonic WV-SFN110 Review: i-PRO Indoor Dome Network Camera

by Albert Breton - on May 9th 2017 - No Comments

I was excited to see Panasonic’s little WV-SFN110 indoor camera.  However, the excitement faded pretty quickly as I tried to configure the camera.  Let me get all the griping out before I go in to the camera itself.  Like many camera manufacturers they think that everyone only runs Windows workstations. The Easy IP software which is supposed to help you set the IP initially is an EXE file so it only runs on Windows.  I tried to use the Easy IP tool to scan for the camera so I could re-IP it, but no luck.  I had to run a port scan on my network to find the camera, so for people who does not know how to run a port scan to find the IP the camera is operating on, it would be a problem.

Once I found the IP I connected with the only browser supported; Microsoft Internet Explorer.  It is beyond me why camera manufacturers do not select a browser platform which can be used from Macs, Linux and Windows, instead of painting themselves into a corner only allowing Internet Explorer.  With Windows 10, Microsoft wants you to use the Edge browser, but that is not supported either, so you must connect to the camera using Internet Explorer, no matter how much you hate it.

According to the company, the new MegaView ® 2 IP bullet camera delivers STELLAR™ Low Light Technology to reduce motion blur, noise and storage requirements. The technology enhances contrast and produces color imaging in near complete darkness on 1.2MP models. Due to its outstanding ability to capture object details in extreme lighting conditions, this camera is ideal for many low light applications.

To reduce the risk of losing important data from short network outages or to help reduce network strain from high storage costs, the MegaView® 2 IP bullet camera includes local storage supporting up to a 32 SD/SDHC card

MegaView® 2 IP bullet cameras feature Arecont Vision’s true wide dynamic range (WDR) technology which provides a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering frame rates (1080p and 3MP models). By combining long and short exposures in the same field of view, WDR maximizes the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision® cameras represents up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional megapixel cameras – Read more
