Hi guys,
I'm looking for a bit of advice... All these different cameras stating this that and something else am I correct in thinking when they say HD and 1080p etc its not actually that? I thought the digital cameras where based on the TVL factor (digital cameras anyway)?

Can anyone recommend a 4 camera setup as well?

Thanks

you have two typed analogue and digital (IP), analogue will be a lower price point HD-SDI 720p, 1080i depending on the camera the quality is generally good, easy way to upgrade older analogue systems, if you install a new system use cat5 with baluns for easy upgrade to if in the future.

i would recommend going for a IP camera system you will be looking at £80+ for the cameras and £200 - £300 for a NVR, brand wise hikvision or dhaula,

google dhaula 4 camera system

Yeah fair play mate budget is around £200 I appreciate the higher cameras are better but slightly out of budget :)

why not just get a dvr and 2 good camera and then add more when more funds are freed up
this way you don't compromise on the cameras

if you have a NAS most IP cmeras can record directly to these so it will save you buying a NVR. Thats what i do with my Dahua cameras
