It certainly can be depending on the quality of the camera, you will get what you pay for with cameras. If you are looking to get better cameras these 2 websites seem to have pretty good selections and the first one shows examples of the cameras in action. http://www.backstreet-surveillance.com/ & http://www.securitycamerasdirect.com/

What can be done on the settings side to help this situation? Also, is this the way all cameras behave in extereme dark conditions?

Expert:  Eric Billings replied 11 months ago.

No not all cameras look that way, but it is very common, probably a matter of product quality in your case. If your cameras have white balance adjustments I would start there. Obviously focus and zoom (if applicable) are critical as well. Knowing the brand and model would help, we could get you some info on adjusting it if it has that capablility.
