DHCP should be enabled on PTZ Optics cameras by default to make the initial setup and installation a simpler experience. Having to connect to each camera and enable DHCP is an unnecessary extra step. It would be greatly appreciated.

Wish I had known that before. I was surprised to find that there's nothing in the OSD menu for changing this, so we had to use the Setup software. I definitely agree that defaulting to DHCP would be better. Almost all of the other professional equipment we use has moved in that direction.
Thank you very much for your suggestion and it is something we will be considering from many perspectives.
In the meantime please note that you can change the cameras to DHCP rather quickly using the IR remote as detailed below...
