Would everybody please suggest what you believe is “the best” camera (in terms of features, resolution, computing power, codec support, reliability robustness, IP protection, etc…) that ALSO takes custom open-source firmware that, again, has the features you mostly want from it?
I have tried the Xiaomi Mijia 1080p (2018) camera & Openfang custom firmware. It requires clamping the chip on the camera PCB and writing to it through ch314prog.
It creates an RTSP server on the camera. However firmware seems buggy to me, a lot of things don’t work, plus no further development seems to be happening and features are pretty few.
If there could be a super-spec camera (I’m looking at Hikvision, primarily because of Wendell’s Nov 2019 video & post) that takes an actively developed firmware (even with few features at the moment), I would be happy
