This is a good all-around indoor camera. It uses an RCA connection, so if you are plugging into a DVR that uses the CCTV-style connection, you will need an adapter. I got the adapter at Radio Shack for a few bucks. The "wide-angle" lens was wider than standard, but a bit dissapointing for me. I got around this by moving the camera back until I could see what I needed to monitor. Overall, this is a great little camera for the price.

I had a sticky fingered tenant sharing my home and the first cam I tried from Radio Shack was more expensive and useless in low light. I put this in my basement and ran it to my computer to record automatically when it detected movement. Worked great and did quite well in a dim basement. I haven't tried the wide angle lens yet. I also ran this on the dash of my car as an inconspicuous camera and ran it to the inputs on a camcorder. Worked very well in all lighting and the night recording was very good. Audio seemed fine as well.

I recently upgraded all my cameras in my business to these (I previously had the Swann B&Ws which lasted without problems for 6 years). An excellent color camera for this price range - much better picture quality than many of the others (Q-see!) of similar cost.

It is very small and discreet and my B&W Swanns were very reliable for a long time. Very easy to connect and produces a very good quality picture. Only issues - (1) definitely needs a lighted area - don't try in darkened areas - (2) not a real wide angle on the lens, and the changeable wide angle is not much wider (although changeable lenses are available like the extra wide and the fisheye) - (3) audio mic is not great.

Still a very good camera for the price. A reasonable quality option for home and small business.

This is a good camera for tight places. The wide angle lens could be a little more wide angle.

Excellent camera for obscure mounting locations. If you want something more hidden but not totally hidden this is your camera. Only drawback is low resolution and cctv technology but honestly in my opinion it's suffice. It gives you a general idea and that is all you need. You're not going to find exact detail which is what law enforcement prefers. Trust me I know I've spent thousands on all kinds of camera technology and despite what sales, bloggers or others say it simply isn't accurate or precise enough. Megapixel technology is nice but incredibly expensive. It also falls short on exact detail which is exactly what you need to prosecute.
