At only 10 m distance, sounds like your camera is right up by the curb.
Just over 1M from fence, aimed up the road, picture shrunk to save space, normally much better.
15meters of conduit to the camera post with a 12V diy POE.
Area of interest is about 10meters away in that shady spot.
Standard lens at the moment, not good enough for plates.
Yep, will need 8-9mm lens I estimate.
I got 16m more conduit for adding IR lights to those fence posts, about 3meters to the curb.
Was not looking forwards to digging them in, did my back recently renovating and I'm having to learn Tai Chi to recover
But if what you say about retro-reflective number plates then I might have to change that plan.
The IR Leds will need to be right next to the cameras.
That is one serious IR spotlight you have
Time to make a portable LED/camera system for testing.
Starting to get enough Zero's to use them now.
No point saving them for a rainy day, still recovering from the last one, just had TC Debbie come through.
Amazingly that camera in a diy case made from a $10 spotlight survived no trouble.
Small SPI LCD for viewer?
Car headlights for lens, never would have thought of that.
I'm dancing on Rainbows.
