Here are some screen shots of me holding up a newspaper in front of two of my cameras. The driveway picture is much clearer. These are screen caps from the video, not snapshots in the app.
When I share a video that I recorded off the playback stream, and I look at the properties through Windows explorer, I see bitrates fro the 250s up to over 1000. I have all my cameras set to HD.
I’m thinking that all of the detail in the trees is overwhelming the compression algorithm.
The one with the lawn in it is a V2 camera. The one of the driveway is V1. I’m not saying V2 is worse than V1. If I take the same picture with both cameras, the V2 is clearer.
