700TVL Infrared Day/Night Varifocal Vandal Dome Security Camera
  Review by Joseph Cabel on May 22, 2014
Good vandal dome with a sturdy dome cover. It also has side knockouts for conduit attachments. This camera is a little unusual to me because in addition to the 700TVL color resolution in gets during the day time, the resolution actually bumps up a little in black and white to 730TVL. Some do it yourselfers may find it a little difficult to deal with because although the camera does have a nice OSD, the control button is located on the camera board which means the OSD has to be adjusted while mounted in place. I read an earlier review that mentioned a remote OSD via an RS 485 connection. I'm not sure that would be necessary because I doubt you would be c hanging settings often but an external in-line OSD controller would be nice. The camera is spec'ed out for a 100 foot infrared range and although I haven't broken out the measuring tape, I believe I get every bit of that and even more. This is used in one of our warehouses so with a strong IR range like that it makes it excellent for use in this type of setting. The varifocal lens is nice as well since it does give you some zoom capability.

Nice Vandal Dome With a Good IR Range

  Review by Marty Campbell on Feb 01, 2014
I get a high quality video recording with his camera without any problems. The camera does have a lot of features that make it useful for a variety of situations. The varifocal lens will give you some zoom control without over doing it, which is nice if you use this in an overhead orientation for example but are forced to ceiling mount the camera higher than the area you would like to monitor (counter tops/registers for example). For longer overview shots it works great too, especially the fact that it will give you about a 100 foot infrared range with the on board infrared LED illuminators. However, the camera is extremely low light sensitive as it is without the extra infrared illumination (it's rated at 0.001 Lux in non-IR mode). In addition the camera comes with Security Camera King's "Smart Dial" feature which allows you to adjust the intensity (or turn them off completely) of the infrared LEDs to fit the distance of the shot. The camera has an on-board OSD joystick button controller. It's an all around good vandal dome.

Likes:
-Great quality video picture, good color, contrast, clarity
-2.8 - 12 mm varifocal lens
-Good low light sensitivity
-Very good infrared range (over 100 feet)
-OSD

Dislikes:
-Seems a little pricey. Though the video is of excellent quality, I'm not sure you couldn't get the same quality for less.
-On board OSD control but no RS485 remote control
-Manual needs to be translated into English better

  Review by George Genet on Sep 18, 2013
Ordered this camera on line and got in within 4 days time. Order was shipped fine and the camera arrived in perfect condition. In addition to the varifocal lens and the ON Screen Display, the camera has a strong base of infrared LED illuminators that give it about a 100 foot range at night and the resolution actually increases in black and white mode to 730TVL. Good product.

This is a high quality high resolution camera (700TVL) with a good infrared range (100 feet). It has a "standard" type varifocal lens (2.8 to 12mm range) and an OSD that gives you a lot of control over features like back light compensation, wide dynamic range, digital noise for low light conditions, and other options. There are cheaper 700TVL cameras but I think you are paying more for the quality of the electronic enhancement features with this camera and the fact that it has a varifocal lens and a 100 foot IR range. I'm happy with it.

  Review by Al Smith S&S Security on May 20, 2013
This is s nice solid, vandal resistant dome camera and its got quite a bit of extras too. The 700TVL color resolution produces a very high quality color video and the 730TVL black and white resolution is a nice touch as well. Once mounted, the camera is very sturdy and the polycarbonate dome cover keeps the camera protected and clean from particles. Plus, the camera has a varifocal lens with a focal length that ranges 2.8 to 12mm. Granted you won't be finding craters on the moon with that kind of zoom power, but you sure can perfect your shot when mounting distances from the objective are less than ideal. The camera is pretty low light sensitive too so you can capture some good "not to bright" shots without a tremendous amount of digital noise. If maintaining a color video is not as important as just maintaining a clear, high resolution video then the light sensitivity doesn't have much impact on your recording since it has an automatic infrared mode with a range of up to 100 feet. The guys at Security Camera King recommended this camera when I told them what I needed and I have to admit, they were spot on with their judgment. The camera also has an OSD accompanied with many different settings and it can be operated remotely from the RS485 connection.

700TVL Infrared Day/Night Varifocal Vandal Dome Security Camera

  Review by Bruce Gayland on Apr 19, 2013
I really like this camera! It was easy to mount and install (not any different than any other dome camera) and the picture it produces is very good. The camera creates a 700TVL color resolution video and a 730TVL black and white resolution so it’s the top of the line when it comes to analog resolution cameras. I am not a CCTV expert, but some research I have done gives me the impression that another reason for the great video quality is because of the Sony Super HAD II CCD and the Sony Effio-E digital processing technology. The camera also has a 2.8 to 12mm varifocal lens that gives you the ability to frame the shot the way you prefer and add a little zoom capability at the same time. However the best feature about this camera is the infrared technology that it possesses. This camera is listed as having a 100 foot infrared range in total darkness and I get every bit of that and then some. But 100 feet is quite a distance to cover with infrared LEDs so they are pretty strong. This can present itself as a problem, because if the camera is mounted to be used in a relatively short distance, the high powered infrared LEDs can actually be too strong and washout the subject in the video. (Imagine watching a black and white movie where the camera is aimed directly into the head lights of an oncoming car or a spotlight for example.) To help prevent this, the camera has what Security Camera King calls their “Smart Dial.” Using the smart dial, you can adjust the intensity of the LEDs (or shut them off completely) to accommodate your general focal range. I think of it as a “specialized” infrared dome. The one thing that I am not over impressed with is the On Screen Display (OSD) adjustment method. This camera does not offer the RS485 OSD remote connection or even the “in-line” joystick button controller. Instead, in order to page through the OSD you must take the cover off of the camera and use a built in button joystick that is built into the camera’s electronic circuit board. However, other than that I don’t have anything else negative to say about it.

Great Camera, Owner's Manual Not So Much

  Review by Jeremy Kyle on Mar 23, 2013
Security Camera King's new 700 TVL Infrared Day/Night Varifocal Vandal Dome Security Camera is an excellent camera, however the owner's manual is a really poor translation of "Engrish" (if you know what I mean). But that's not really much of a problem because Security Camera King does have an excellent support staff and if you have any questions at all, I'm sure they will answer them. They did for me. The camera has a good Sony chipset and sensor and at 700 TVL resolution the video it records is undisputedly high quality. The 2.8 - 12mm varifocal lens only makes that more so by allowing you to adjust your field of view so you get just the size shot you want. I am happily surprised that even though the camera is not "jam packed" with infrared LED illuminators (it's got about 30 and I have seen a many as 80 on some cameras) it still has an excellent IR range in total darkness of about 100 feet. That works out great, especially if you set up the camera using a little zoom on the varifocal lens; it helps prevent being out of range with that kind of LED power. On the other hand, powerful LEDs have a tendency to over illuminate subjects that are close to the camera, however this camera has something called a "Smart Dial" that allows you to manually lower the LEDs or even turn them off completely to adjust for that. Even with out IR LED assistance the camera still has a pretty low light sensitivity (0.001 LUX) so you can use it like a true day/night camera if you like. It also comes with an OSD that allows you to make adjustments to many features but if you rely on the owner's manual for help, this is where the "Engrish" can make things a little "hairy." It's a very good camera though and I would recommend it.
