Great camera – Waterproof Night Vision IR 30-LED Camera (PAL/DC 12V 500mA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- Good build quality.
- (Almost) easy to use (I'll specify why in the Cons section)
- CHEAP!
- Nice looking.
- Genious mounting bracket included.
Cons:
- No wiring schematic, which of the pins on the connector is the ground and which is the supply?
- The image quality is a bit saturated.
- No possibilty to turn off the automatic IR light.
Other:
One strange thing is that the user manual recommends that you use the power supply that is included...What power supply??
So if you have bought this camera, do not have a clue on the polarity of the power connector, and do not want screw up and burn the camera, here is the solution:
CENTER CONNECTOR: +12Vdc
OUTER CONNECTOR: Ground
Bottomline:
Now that I've showed you how to connect a power supply to the camera, there should not be any doubt about buing this camera.
BUY IT!!
