Hi, i was wondering whether you need the extra bracket en heater for outside in colder climates?
I understand the bracket is needed as the cable protrudes in some cases.
But what is your suggestion?

We've not had any reports of people needing the heater.
You will almost certainly need Sanyo's back box to mount this camera outdoors.
Please note that Sanyo have stopped manufacturing all CCTV cameras, and the remaining models are now in very short supply.

I am currently in the process of changing my analogue cam and DVR setup to a full HD IP cam and NVR.
Basically I am wondering if the Sanyo would perform as well as my Samsung SCC- B5399P dome cam in low light conditions?
Thanks for your help...

I don't know that particular Samsung model, but generally Samsung's analogue day/night CCTV cameras have excellent low-light performance, and I would therefore suspect that the Sanyo HD cameras would need the assistance of additional external lighting to match the Samsung camera's performance at low light levels.

Hi like Ian I want to use these cameras with a hard drive recorder,any update on the QNAP recorders for these cams.I was going to buy 4 of these for use with a recorder.I cannot wait much longer and may have to go with standard cams instead.

Yes, I'm pleased to say that the QNAP VioStor NVRs and Sanyo HD Network cameras are now fully compatible, see extract from QNAP's press release below:
QNAP Security, a world class manufacturer of Linux-embedded standalone Network Video Recorder (NVR) solutions, today announced its entire VioStor™ NVR series to support the complete Full HD 1080p network camera line-up from SANYO, a world leading network camera manufacturer, to provide high-end network surveillance solutions for a wide range of networked security applications. The support for SANYO Full HD network cameras is now available by free upgrade of the management software of QNAP VioStor™ NVR series to version 3.2.0.
I can also tell you that they hope to release an iPhone App for access to the QNAP VioStor NVRs in Q3 2010
Hope that helps ...
PS - For anybody interested in using PC-based CCTV recording software to manage and record Sanyo's 4MP IP cameras, then they will be pleased to know that LuxRiot's latest software is also now fully compatible with the Sanyo HD IP cameras.

Hi, the ACTi ACM-7411 and Sanyo VDC-HD3300P are closely priced, one being 4MP and the other 1.3MP. Stupid question, but is the Sanyo a clear winner for image quality, as the demos of the ACTI look very good? Also, what performs better in very low light?
Question by: Rob G on 22 Dec 2009 23:18:26
Hello There, it's not a stupid question at all. We haven't had a chance to compare them side-by-side yet. The ACTi 7411 is a very good camera and has proved its effectiveness in many applications over the last two years. The Sanyo 3300 is the new 'bleeding-edge' in IP CCTV image resolution - it is the clear winner for pixels. Image quality overall is a little more subjective, and I can only say that all customers so far have been pleased with the images, some already returning for more.
Low-light performance specification is very similar, ACTi claim a lower lux level performance for the 7411 (0.05 Lux), but the 30IRE statement alongside that claim actually means that under those conditions you'll only get 30% of the signal level that you should expect. So, in fact, Sanyo's claim of 0.1 Lux with no IRE caveat is probably better than that of the 7411 from ACTi.
No complaints from customers about the low-light performance of either. If you check the Lux Chart in the Blog section of our website you'll see that 0.1 Lux is pretty dark!
Bear in mind that if it is an outdoor installation you are likely to need the VA-85 back box for the Sanyo, which will not be available until the New Year and is an unknown additional cost at the moment.

Hello Keith, Sorry to say that this back box for the dome is not available until mid-January, we will be adding it as an accessory for the camera shortly.
Buyers should note that the network RJ45 connector to the camera will protrude from the rear centre, and many applications/installations are likely to need the back box (unless the cable entry is through a wall/ceiling/surface).

I've installed 2 of these now, really pleased with the image quality, the autofocus is very useful too.
I'd make the following comments:-
