The camera may be out of focus during a rapid zoom change if:
The camera tries to focus on the bright lights and fails to find the correct focus position (example snapshot of headlights below).
If there are still problems with focus in these conditions after Spotlight Avoidance is activated, then the following settings can be adjusted.
Additional Applications -Recommended Settings:
To maintain color mode as long as possible
o Change Maximum Automatic Exposure to: 1/15
o Change Night Mode Threshold to: 20
o Leave the default setting of NIGHT MODE PRIORITY as COLOR.
NOTE: The headlight “blooming effect” is less in Color mode since the stray IR light from the headlights is blocked.
This is why it is an advantage to operate in color mode longer.
If more Contrast is preferable:
-Select Low, Medium, or High.
The spotlight avoidance is not available/ supported by the new camera blocks (MIC 7100i models). This feature is automatic in MIC 7100i camera models blocks.
