Good Camera – 1/3 SONY CCD Waterproof Surveillance Security Camera with 48-LED Night Vision - Black (DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
Nice camera. Gives a decent picture both during the day and at night. Very solidly built and seems to be properly waterproof.
Cons:
It is a bit big. The mounting bracket on the back of the camera almost doubles its length. Depending on usage, this may or may not be an issue.
Other:
LEDs do glow very noticeably red at night.
Initially was getting a funny green band across the picture when viewing in Cheese, XAWTV and VLC (all on Ubuntu) but after plugging into my Zoneminder setup it is working perfectly.
Bottomline:
Worthwhile. Have in the past been buying cheap cameras from DX (SKU 58971, 2764, 19820,etc...) and this one is definitely a step up in picture quality, especially at night.
