2012 Uway VH 200B black IR 8 MP digital camera
The documentation for this camera is the same book as we used for the
little brother U 150 camera. It came in a solid
flat black case that is somewhat larger than the
150 camera. The measurements are about 6 inches
tall and four and a half inches wide. The
thickness is about three inches. There are cable
and strap loops built into the back. The back
also has a quarter inch insert for their
accessory mount. There is no tri-pod insert on
the bottom. The bottom of the case has a rubber
plug to access the external battery port.
Internal port has no polarity markings. The
front of the camera has the blacked out array at
the top and indicators along with the main lens
just below. The wide angle PIR sensor is across
Camera case has a weather tight seal. Inside the case has the SD card
and blank Sim card slot. The inside bottom edge
has the un marked polarity external battery port
There is also a USB and main switch beside that
port. The inside front half has a view/playback
/programming LCD screen. Below that is its
associated buttons. The camera balk half is the
battery compartment (12 AA) without center
Part of our research showed what looks like a significant change in the
warranty on these cameras. It indicated that it
is much like Bushnell which requires a payment
for shipping and handling in order to get the
work done on this 1 year period. Replacement
cameras do not get that period extended past the
original cameras purchase + 1 year period. Their
Uovision cameras have a strait 2 year warranty
with no pay as you go.
There is an audible clunk during transition which occurs twice per day.
The main switch location up under the camera rim is a bit of a hassle
because you have to use the switch by feel and
not by sight when mounted in the standard
manner. Maybe after some use, one could remember
just how each position feels, but it is still
This camera IR function falls into the very low glow category. The flash
can be seen fairly easy at 6 feet so we cannot
classify it as being true black flash.
The replacement camo version tested to have a
flash range of 65 feet at 77 degrees. The
trigger came in at about a second and a half for
both day and night operations. Sensing
test proved 65+ feet at 77 degrees.
The batteries finally failed on this camera.
We captured a total of 403 videos and 4984
photos over a 4 week period. This review
is now closed.
