Was looking for a camera to monitor my puppy at home, while I was at work. I was looking for a wireless network camera, so that I can use the camera for other reasons if needed around the house. I was told that the wireless versions were a bit more expensive, and with network cameras quality improves with higher priced cameras. After looking around, I initially tried the Panasonic BCL30 for about 3 weeks. I was initially impressed, but never got that crystal clear quality. I could see my puppy, and what she was doing, but it was never clear. Therefore I decided to return it and try the Axis brand. After all they have a reputation of being used in homes, stores, malls, hotels. But they also range from low end to very high end. The Axis 207MW is about $75 more than the panasonic, but the difference is breathtaking. The images are crisp, clear, and extremely detailed. Though it does not have the Pan/Scan feature of the panasonic, this camera was far an away better in terms of image quality. Setup was also easy. It does require a PC for initial setup. I have a Mac but was able to set it up using Parallels (mac users know this). I am planning to buy more of these cameras to set it around my house, for home security purposes. The quality is amazingly clear, and if someone does break in, then I will have a chance get a detailed shot of the intruder. The camera does have motion setup which can be setup to email snap shots of motion, or upload motion video to a server. The web interface is also a breeze. My family also watch my dog over the internet and also have made comments on how surprisingly clear the picture was. All in all, though a bit overpriced a great product, and I plan on buying a few more. To sum it up, the difference between this camera and the Panasonic BL C-30 is like AM Radio to CD.

The Axis 207MW is a very fine device: the optical quality is good, and the unusually high resolution gives a clear, broad field of view. The camera performs well in low light. It may have problems when the lighting contrast (exposure latitude) is too great; but I have encountered that only when trying to view outdoors scenes at certain times of day. This camera can be used through a window, but it is really meant for indoor use. The instructions say that direct sunlight will damage the sensor, so for outdoor scenes, one should arrange for a window with a north view.

The Axis cameras are the most suitable ones for Mac users. The 207 series is compatible with Bonjour, which means that the camera will instantly work on your LAN. Following directions, hook up with Cat5/6 cable, go to Safari, and open Bonjour. From there you can make all the necessary set-up adjustments, including for wireless local and Internet use. I have both my Axis 207AWs programmed to be accessible remotely over the Internet. That requires access to the router for port-forwarding, but the Axis side of the set-up is easy, the directions are good, and the tech support is excellent. Use is comfortable, and the set-up options very clear yet versatile, when compared with other cameras I have used.

I regard the Axis 207MW as a high quality product, outclassing its competition.

Initially, I loved this camera; however, after owning it a few weeks, I'm not as enthused.

Issues:
- Emailing motion detected videos doesn't support modern secure email servers like gmail.
- Wifi seems to only work for a few days at a time. I've had to plug into ethernet to keep it running long term.
- Fish eye effect is very pronounced. Yeah, you get a better field of view but even objects in middle are warped. Not unreasonable, but you should expect it.
- If you choose a higher image quality, you get really bad motion blurring... basically the still background looks great, but everything else sucks. Not a huge deal, but I read the raves about image quality so I purchased it... and quality is only great if you compromise other things.
- 1 out of 10 mpeg4 videos for motion detection just won't play because they are corrupt according to Quicktime.
- I tried HTTPS sending since secure gmail wasn't supported, but it didn't work because the device only support http 1.0. Most services require the HOST: field (not supported by http 1.0).

This webcam isn't bad, but it's in an odd market position. It's not exactly on the easy-to-use side, but if you want optimal control and video quality *at the same price as this device*, you should jet an Asus EEE box, slap a nice Logitech webcam on it and install motion detection software. EEE box only draws 17watts of power and can do things beside waiting for movement when you're on vacation.

So, I have been evaluating this camera for a week now and related Axis software. The only issue I have run into so far is this recovery problem over a wireless network. Unfortunately its a killer for the product. Rebooting my 2wire modem hangs the 207 camera, which requires a power cycle to recover. If you are planning to remotely manage these cameras, they must be reliable and never hang, no matter what! In my case, no one is at the property to cycle power on a hung camera... so monitoring is dead until the next visit to the property. This is unacceptable in my opinion. Its very unfortunate, since I like the Axis software and the camera quality. The support channel over the web at Axis is weak as well. You get one question answered per day, which would make a 20 minute telephone conversation 20 days long. I don't understand why you can't get phone support, it would be much much faster. In any case, I would not recommend buying this product if you are planning to run with a wireless 2wire modem. I am sending this and a 211w back to Axis.
