Model: Tapo C220  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: FW 1.1.9

Hello my friend is looking to purchase C220 for bird monitoring, he requires HDR video enhancement for his YouTube.

 

I was looking for spec datasheet its says it does support WDR (maybe WDR & HDR are same thing).

 

But in my app I don't see any toggle for WDR option. 

 

Kindly help!

Hi, yes, I have the C225 V2 which is the one currently available on Amazon where I bought them.  Currently have two of them active and a third on the way from Amazon. 

 

This model has HDR and the frame rate can be set at 15, 20, 25, or 30fps.  

 

The housing of the camera is a little bigger than the C220 but it has a few more features like Starlight Sensor for night use (be aware that for this to actually work there still has to be a decent amount of ambient light), two IR settings for when it's too dark for Starlight to work, one with visible IR lights, the other with invisible IR lights, and a physical privacy mode where the camera lens rolls up into the housing so even if someone were to hack into the camera, they would see nothing other than the inside of the housing.  

 

I also have a C220 which is cheaper but doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the C225.

My C220 doesn't have HDR but my C225 does.  Maybe consider the C225 instead?

  @SillyPari  @SDGTR  I have Tapo C225 V1 and C220 V1, and neither of them has the HDR option, it should be the C225 V2 has the HDR option.

@Summer_S Correct. I don't have a V1 but can confirm that the V2 definitely has HDR.
