Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
@joseph_1979 agreed Joseph! And I think there’s a large market segment that want larger sensors and are willing to pay the higher price. Hopefully the cx410 is Reolink testing the waters and there is more to come here. This camera is what drew me to Reolink. I’d never considered Reolink until I saw the cx410. If Reolink expands on this model (Poe, larger sensors), I think they can draw in a lot more enthusiasts like me who are looking for cameras that are at least comparable to entry level Hikvision and dahua cameras combined with the ease of use that Reolink offers. Right now, there really isn’t anything on the market that address both (good quality cameras with proper sensor sizes combined with great, user friendly software).
Sadly, this roadmap is disheartening. It seems that Reolink is chasing marketing lingo instead of focusing on making good cameras. Wireless is terrible for reliability. 12mp is also terrible for security cameras. It sounds good on paper, but anyone who knows anything beyond the basics when it comes to cameras understands that a 4mp camera will blow away a 12mp camera on the same sensor. That's why the CX410 is the best camera Reolink makes. They put a larger sensor in this cam. This is the direction Reolink needs to go. We need more 4mp cameras on 1/1/8 sensors or 4k on 1/1.2 sensors. And we need 4mm and 6mm options. This is what you need for security footage under anything other than perfectly ideal conditions to be useful. On existing Reolink 4k cameras on 1/2/8 sensors with 2.8mm wide angle lenses, you can't "identify" a face unless the person is standing still in broad daylight 10' from the camera. These specs are the exact opposite and completely the wrong direction. And it is all really unfortunate that Reolink appears to be focusing on making the worst performing cameras that look the best on paper.
