The package came with the camera, an 100 foot cable,and manual..The picture quality is very very good for a $40 camera. The picture is very clear during the day. and still pretty good during nighttime. You just need to angle the camera right. We took the spring off of our window and left the window open a crack so we can point the camera facing outside towards our car. With the spring in the way nothing was visible. which was a disappointment
Another disappointment was that the camera isn't very discreet. I thought,yeah it looks a little big,but we can probably hide it pretty well. We can hide it pretty well,but red little lights shine off of it(they're on the lens). This can be kind of obvious especially at night time.
The good this is you can connect the camera into any TV with RCA inputs. Or you can do it the way I do and plug it into a capture card and record onto your computer.The cheapest capture card your can get is $9 off of ebay. I recommend this setup for anyone low on cash & looking for a surveillance camera.
Easy cap comes with recording software for your computer.First install the easy cap on to your computer. After, plug the camera's output cables into the easy cap and record. We do this over night. you can set the video quality to be good or a lower resolution (to save up computer space since the files are big). We then look through the videos the next day and delete them off of our computer.
The mic on the cam works good. But I can't really say much else about it. Easy cap doesn't capture the sound well. that seems to be the worst down side to it.
Decent camera for 40 dollars.
If I ever get a chance to. I will upload video quality of the camera so you all can get a look.
4 out 5 stars
You should know that, in order to accommodate night / low light the lens and electronics shifts the picture toward the infrared range which makes certain colors, especially green, look off color (almost silver). That being said, don't expect movie camera colors.
Also, it is a moderate telephoto lens set-up so don't expect a wide-angle presentation because it does not do it. As an example, I placed the camera 30ft away from my house with the left hand edge of the camera picture on my front door. My porch extends from the front door for 9 feet where the top of the driveway begins. My hope was, with the door on the left side of the frame the right side of the picture frame would capture the front of the driveway. No such luck... the frame only captured the front door and to the right for 9 feet (as I say, from 30 feet away).
Being hard-wired, this unit is free from RF interference so the picture is free of interference, as they say.
I will keep this unit to view the back of my house (small elevated porch) but can't use it for the front because of the narrow field of view issue. If you just want to see who's at the front door, you will probably be ok (unless you want movie camera quality pictures).
