1080P HD-SDI Weatherproof Bullet Surveillance Camera
  Review by Nancy Weinmann on Sep 22, 2014
This HD-SDI technology is great compared to IP network systems since I am able to replace my old analog security camera system without changing out any coaxial cable. This bullet camera is particularly handy, because it records at 2 megapixels (1080p) and has a 2.8 - 12 mm varifocal lens. The camera is also loaded with a bunch of on board infrared LEDs that project a thorough, wide beam of infrared "light." The specs say this camera has a range of 150 feet of IR in total darkness and I agree with that. It mounts easy and has movement joints that provide for easy, exact positioning in just about any direction once it is mounted. Over all I think it is a very good camera.

I purchased my camera several months ago when the HD-SDI technology was first hitting the market. Back then, HD-CVI was also coming out, but it seemed like the highest resolution you could get for that system was 720p. That's still high definition, but I figured 1080p would be even better. Now, HD-CVI can even handle 1080p and the technology seems to be a little cheaper. Because of that, if I were to purchase a system again now, I may consider HD-CVI cameras instead. But just the same, I am very satisfied with this camera.

Excellent camera! Had no problems adding this to my new already installed HD-SDI system. I like the threaded mount, seems to be sturdier than most. The camera was easy to mount; four screws and a hole for the cables and that's about it. It beats a dome because of the greater freedom for positioning. It beats a box camera because it already has a lens and is water proof. What more can I say comparing the different types of cameras? It does capture a full 1080p resolution video picture and a full real time rate of 30 frames per second without any dropped frames or hang-ups. For that matter I haven't encountered any interference, distortion, or digital noise in the picture either. The 2.8 to 12 mm varifocal lens allows you some zooming capability so, depending on how and where you mount it, you can really pick up the smallest details. This camera has a better than average infrared range too stretching out it's infrared range to 150 feet in total darkness. I'll never do analog cameras again, and I'm not sure I'll ever want a network IP system either.

What's not to like? They should call these "Super-Bullet Cameras." This camera records 1080p resolution video at 30 frames per second over regular RG59 coaxial cable and the picture and recording look like something from a TV studio. I've got this camera mounted outside and aimed at my pump aisle and it not only takes them all in but faces are identifiable as well. It's got one heck of an infrared range too at 150 feet. If you compare this camera's output to that of the highest analog bullet camera's output it reminds me of comparing a photograph to a painting of the same thing. You just can't beat the fine resolution. It also has one of those on screen display menus that let's you make adjustments to the settings. I'd recommend this camera to someone in a heartbeat.

  Review by Jack Gester on Mar 27, 2013
I've got to admit, I am really impressed with this camera. The camera was easy to mount; all you have to do is screw the back plate into the wall with four screws, then using the threads on the back plate screw the camera to it. The camera can be aimed in just about any direction, so that's not a problem. There is enough of a lead coming off the camera that I could easily hook the camera up to my old RG59 coaxial cable using the BNC connector. If you haven't had the opportunity to use these relatively new HD-SDI systems and are used to using analog systems like 700 TVL resolution cameras, you'll be shocked at how much more detail you see with the video these cameras record. This particular Security Camera King Camera records in a full 2 megapixels or 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. The camera comes with an On Screen Display menu that is controlled by operating a joystick type button that is built into the camera cable. While the camera does not have wide dynamic range, it has a host of many other features that can be controlled such as brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness, automatic exposure, and mirror functions. In addition you can also witch the camera's resolution from 1080p to 720p and back if you prefer, and the different types of color modes (IR-Cut/Black and White/Auto/Color). Security Camera King says it has a 150 foot infrared range in total darkness and I get every bit of that and then some. I would think the average user would, considering the fact that the lens is surrounded by 84 individual LEDs. The final beneficial feature to mention on this camera is that it has a 2.8 to 12 mm varifocal lens. It's really a good value buy. Take a moment and compare this camera to a box camera for example. Security Camera King's cheapest 700TVL box camera is $109.95. The box camera requires a lens and for a 2.8 - 12mm lens you can add another $39.95. If you are going to use the camera outside, a box camera needs a housing with mount, cheapest about $39.95. So for a box camera you would still pay $189.95 and that's only at a 700TVL resolution! Also, an IP megapixel camera far exceeds the price of the TP-OB-HDIR150L2812-B and so does a comparable 2 megapixel IP bullet camera.

Analog box cameras move over; there's a new sheriff in town. We just recently purchased one of the new HD-SDI recording systems and we are replacing each of our older analog cameras with an appropriate HD-SDI camera. This Security Camera King 1080p HD-SDI bullet camera is every bit amazing as the other HS-SDI cameras we've purchased if not even a little more so. This camera looks like an average analog type bullet camera but it delivers a video recording of 2 megapixels or 1080p at 30 frames per second (real time). Better even is the fact that it comes with a 2.8 - 12mm varifocal lens for adjusting your field of view from a wide angle shot (at 2.8mm) to a moderate zoom and narrower angle at 12mm. And, like all these new HD-SDI camera systems cameras, you don't need to remove your old RG59 coaxial cable and rerun it with Cat5E either. Although these cameras themselves do not function like IP network cameras, they do give you the advantage of an IP megapixel camera by being able to transmit data serially over the coaxial cable to give you maximum camera resolution. The detail is amazing and the picture is tremendously higher in quality. Another benefit of this system is that since the cameras are using RG59 coax, they aren't eating away at the bandwidth on your network system because technically the camera is off the network. (The recorder can be connected to the network but the camera transmits directly to the recorder and not over the network). This bullet camera produces a highly detailed picture whether it is in daytime color or night time black and white under infrared conditions. Speaking of which it has an infrared range of about 150 feet with a total of 84 working IR LED illuminators built right in around the lens. If you haven't gotten one of these systems yet but would like to have the detailed resolution video without the hassle of a IP megapixel network systems, I would highly recommend you give these a try.
