Night mode?

    Does it have IR filter on|off switch (for day|night modes) at the lens?

    Do you see sun and moon signs at the upper side near the lens barrel?
    It means that switch should be there if it is not fake.
    Look at that picture:

    Please would you be so kind to try it on this product? Please.

    It actually changes the aperture. Not for IR filter. If it works for IR filter, you can not record anything but objects in very short range lit by LEDs.

    I mean IR filter that cuts IR for daytime (to have natural colours during daytime) and stop cutting IR rays during nighttime, to allow more light flow to sensor. But aperture changing still is OK. Thank you!

    I understood what you meant. Cheap car and surveillance cameras which have IR LEDs usually use camera unit with built-in far red IR filter, and use near-red IR LEDs to let IR light pass through the filter. Some good and expensive DVRs use camera unit without filter and use external filter.
