  • Good but has some shortcomings

    posted by timmans on 06/23/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Professional looking camera. Quite unobtrusive and during the day, can be quite hard to see where the camera is pointing.

    Cons:

    To change to focus of the camera, you need to remove the IR-LED plate to access the locking screw of the lens (see below). A much better option would be to use a spring rather than a screw to lock the lens.

    I have purchased a few of these and I have noticed some quite variable quality:

    - Some of the cameras have screwed-in IR-LED plates and others have glued in plates. Glued in plates make it next to impossible to change to focus of the camera (see above).

    - Pictures during daylight are uniformly ok but some of the cameras pictures are incredibly grainy at night and others have a fine picture. I have played around and it seems to be a camera problem rather than a power/cable etc problem.

    OtherThoughts:

    Not a bad camera but can be a bit of a lottery depending on the build quality.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you are using during the day or are not too fussy with image quality at night.
