Ok camera for specific locations
on May 21, 2012
First camera received had a poor power connection and would go dead intermittently. As usual, Amazon returns backed the exchange with expert efficiency. The replacement camera worked well, for what it is.
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).
