Tiandy TC-C32GP Bullet Camera: First Impressions
Image is contrasty and bright with good management of variable light, decent depth of field and low blur.
Tiandy’s TC-C32GP 2MP H.265 bullet camera features Full HD resolution, a fixed 4mm focal length and fixed lens, adjustable WDR, 50 metre IR range and an integrated housing. When the boys from NAS Australia offered to drop off 2 bullet cameras at the SEN office, we jumped at the chance to get a feel for their capabilities.
This TC-C32GP day/night IP67 bullet camera is the smaller of the 2 Tiandy cameras we’re going to test over the coming months. It’s a compact little unit that’s extremely simple to set up, with a solid feature set at this price. Build quality is excellent and the design is pleasing and discreet. This Tiandy bullet is light – it’s probably the smallest camera we’ve ever put into the Magic Arm.
In terms of overall features, the TC-C32GP bullet has a 1/2.8-inch CMOS sensor, delivering colour down to 0.0008 lux @ an aperture of F1.6 with ACG ON). These numbers are probably optimistic, given starlight without moon is 0.002 lux. In monochrome with IR activated, the camera delivers usable images down to 0 lux. Shutter speed is adjustable from 1s to 1/100,000s and this day/night camera features an IR cut filter with auto. There’s also digital WDR.
