30x 2 Megapixel IP Network PTZ
This has got to be one of the highest quality PTZ cameras I have seen. When a company bothers to take the time to include a roll of Teflon thread tape to wrap the mounting ring with to prevent moisture from entering the body of the camera, I think that indicates the kind of quality I am talking about here. Let me back up a bit and start from the beginning.
We were looking for a high quality, megapixel camera with a powerful zoom and on board infrared LEDs to match. After searching through the IP network PTZ cameras Security Camera King has to offer, we settled on this particular camera mainly for three reasons. First it captures video at 1080p (2 megapixel) resolution at 30 frames per second, second it has a 30x optical zoom, and third it has the on-board infrared LEDs powerful enough to range 250 feet. I placed the order for our company through this Security Camera King web site on a Monday, the camera arrived at our door on Friday. The camera was packed tightly in a box protected by Styrofoam and other protective packaging. There was no shipping damage and the camera arrived in perfect condition.
The camera includes a wall mount which is easy to install and a small safety chain that connects the camera to the adapter ring to prevent dropping the 15 pound (or so) camera while servicing. The camera has numerous features including presets, tours, auto scanning, alarm inputs and outputs as well as audio. There is also an on board micro SD slot so you can record directly to the camera without the need for an NVR if you have to. Electronic features include backlight compensation, digital wide dynamic range, digital noise reduction, and a 16x digital zoom. There are far more features but you can see them all by taking a look at the specs or be talking to someone in Security Camera King's sales department. The key points about the camera that I would like to make is that even though the camera is fairly large in size, it is a speed dome. Movements are rapid and smooth and if you are controlling it manually, almost instantaneous. The video captured in color or black and white is highly detailed. In normal lighting the camera creates colored video that is clear sharp and detailed for the entire viewing area. In infrared mode, the captured video in black and white is also sharp and detailed, especially in the area created by direct illumination of the LEDs. Areas outside that angle are a little fuzzy. The PTZ also has two sets of on board LED's; one set is for close objects and another for those far away up to 250 feet. Extra separate illuminators can be used to extend the range as well.
Lastly, I must commend Security Camera King's technical support department for their excellent support. Their know the camera like they just built it themselves and are also very willing to assist you with anything from installation to operation. As I said in the beginning of my review, I really believe this is one of the highest quality PTZs available and I don't think you will be disappointed as we certainly are not.

This camera is like having one of the Google World satellites on your security network! When you need a serious security PTZ camera, this is definitely the go to. With a 1080p video resolution image, there is no way you should miss any detail, especially with a 30X zoom power lens! We mounted this on a pole to be used to protect a very sensitive area but because of the price and the importance of the camera, we even put a sensitive accelerometer on the pole connected to an alarm to protect the camera! The camera weighs about 15 pounds so you'll need to make sure you have a sturdy surface for mounting to prevent vibration during camera movements. Even though the camera has it's own on-board infrared illuminators, the low light sensitivity rating on the camera is incredible at 0.05 lux in color and 0.0005 lux in black and white. On those really dark nights when we need to be able to see clearly off into the distance of the area this camera protects, the on board LED illuminators and the Smart technology combined light up the object and the area like a lit baseball field (unbeknownst to them of course.) If for some reason there is a power failure the camera will restore itself to the previous PTZ and lens setting just before the power outage. The camera is loaded with presets, auto scans, tours, and pattern programs and does an over all excellent job. I highly recommend it for those times when you need a no-fail positive ID clear security video.

The bottom dollar on this camera is that it is excellent, produces a great video image, and has a super powerful zoom and a very good infrared range. Its movements are quick and stable and the camera seems very reliable and steadfast, like it will last for years to come. Now my rant. I watched the news the other night and a local Gold and Pawn shop, whose name I won't mention, was burglarized in the middle of the night. They showed the security video footage on the news in case anyone could identify the individual who appeared to use a tire iron or something similar to break open the back door. This video was so lousy; they might have well shown a stick figure. I know this business and they do a pretty good dollar volume. I can't believe they would have such a cheap video security system. If they had had this camera, they'd know exactly who it was that did the breaking and entering. I can't understand why businesses, especially those with expensive assets like gold and jewelry, don't have decent video security systems. I see this all the time. I'm telling you if they would have invested in this camera, there would be no mystery. That's how good the picture is day or night. In addition, if you're afraid to consider purchasing one of this PTZs because it may appear too complicated or difficult to use, don't be fearful. Security Camera King does have an excellent support department that will steer you through any difficulties you may have and they will answer any question without making you feel like an idiot, no matter how big or small the issue. Can't beat it.

"You've got to be kidding me!" was my first reaction when I saw this listed in the Security Camera King web site. It would appear that these PTZ cameras keep getting higher and higher in resolution and zoom magnification power. A camera with this kind of combined resolution and zoom power can really show some detail on objects near of far. The camera is jam packed with features that I must say are so great in number that they do make the OSD a little bit intimidating for first time users like myself. Digital wide dynamic range, back light compensation, digital noise reduction, defog, presets, scans, tours, privacy masking, etc. are all there and accessible. All you have to do is learn where they are on the OSD and what settings you need to make them work best for you. The PTZ movements are quick enough that I would say this probably qualifies as a speed dome. the camera movements are exact and easily controllable and even though the camera itself is fairly large the movements really don't cause any annoying vibration to appear in the recorded videos. I'm not sure you can get much better than this and I'm certain that no one can outdo Security Camera King's technical support department. Those guys do an excellent job and were more than willing to help me get the job done.
