What happens if you point your lights farther outward in every direction instead?
Making it brighter more toward the border can extend the average lighting to be a wider and more balanced area and make it easier to see more.
Aim the left one much farther to the left, and the right one much farther to the right, and the middle one as far up as you dare without upsetting your neighbors for thinking it is pointing directly at them. I bet that will improve things.
Right now, there is so much light in the center of the video that if it made the outside viewable, the middle would be completely washed out and only white. If you can spread out the lighting a little more then it will be able to extend the viewable area without white-washing the center of your viewable area.
Yes moving the floodlights out more like you suggested definitely helped a little bit but the image still looks dark. I have to turn off the floodlights and turn them back on for the image to clear up every night. Kinda annoying but oh well.
I’m gonna try and test out the Beta FW and see if it addresses the problem.
Yes, that’s correct. The image will stay darkened until I turn off the floodlights and turn them back on.
If I turn off ambient lighting and set the night vision to OFF, that’ll force the camera to go colored night vision. The image will be in colored night vision and won’t look darkened like the images I’ve posted before
right on, that’s precisely what I was wondering. The reason I asked that is I was wondering where the levels were for the contrast to not flip and get as good, And with you saying that the color night vision doesn’t have the same effect where it appears as though the concrete is the brighter area and I think the quick contrast is what is fixing the bad adjustment. so in that I wonder if it is the over saturation of the concrete causing it or the lack of light at the edges not allowing it to adjust.
you dont happen to drive a dark car do you?
If you happened to drive a dark car, I would say, pull the dark car onto the concrete so that the image is more leveled across its whole field of view and see if. the result stays where the edges don’t adjust as well. and vice versa to that. If you drive a very light colored car, park that near the top of the frame of view. and see if the camera is able to adjust based on that.
It almost seems as if the camera is adjusting based on ace. single area. and doing a horrible job because of it. Whereas once the floodlights are manually controlled, it’s looking at a larger area. This is purely speculation, but it’s the type of thing I would be playing around with if I were having this issue.
