Samsung Wisenet X XNO-8080R is a 5MP bullet camera with WiseStream II support, a speedy F1.2 motorised varifocal lens with a range of 3.7-9.4mm, 30ips of resolution, H.264 and H.265 compression, 50m IR range, IP67/IP66, NEMA 4X and IK10 ratings against weather and vandalism, and video analytics including loitering, sound classification, fog detection, digital auto tracking and tampering. 

Typical Samsung, this camera is wonderfully built – everything fits together very nicely and the cable arrangement is tidy, although the RJ45 port inside the base of the camera requires a tight loop during installation. Physically, the beautifully built cast-aluminium housing is 2.2kg and the dimensions are 391cm x 368.6cm. The 8080R has IP67 and IP66 ratings against weather, IK10 rating against vandalism and an integrated poly sunshade, which can intrude into the angle of view when extended at full wide. Temperature range is -40 to 55C and maximum power draw (PoE, 12V DC or 24 V AC) is 12.5W.


Subject at 25m, focal length is 9.4mm on 1/1.8th sensor

After spending a couple of days playing with the Samsung 8080R I find it offers good colour rendition, great depth of field and low blur in good light that’s held almost until night mode. It performs well in the face of WDR, too. The focal range is ideal on the street, giving investigators the ability to get faces past 25m and useful detail towards 50m at the long end – both in good and failing light. The excellent physical specification makes the 8080R a worthy competitor in the external bullet camera market.
