I have a cabinet shop that I want to install cameras in and was wondering if this camera would work ok?  The shop is 60' long and has three sections side by side.  Each section is 20' wide by 60' long.  I want to put one camera at the end of each section pointed down the 60' distance.  I want to have the ability to see what my guys are doing and time them to see how long it is taking them to do a particular task.  Will I get a pretty good picture at that distance or will it cover the 20' x 60' area?

Also this is an outdoor camera so I was thinking it is sealed up.  this is a cabinet shop and it has dust so I was thinking the outdoor camera would be a better choice for the environment.  I realize we will have to clean the lens cover periodically.

Hope this makes sense.

I forgot to mention that the ceiling height is 10' in the shop.

Would I get a wider field of view with a 2mp camera?

The cameras would work for your application. I would suggest a veri-focal lens as you want a good view of a long distance so it will need to be adjusted. The lens type dictates viewing field. A 2MP camera would have greater pixel density and image size for viewing on a monitor, so you can see more of the finer details. Not so much on the wider angle.  The outdoor rated cameras put up wit the dust better for sure, but as long as you don't have an air compressor actively blowing dust or shavings at the camera the indoor should be good.

Those three cameras would suit you I think. The issue I see is going to be the dust which you know. The dome camera has IRs in inside of dome. If the dome has dust on it and the IRs come on it will white out the image from light reflecting of the dusty dome. The bullet will be considerably less susceptible to that as the IRs are mounted differently.

Thanks for the reply,

Its not a dust storm in the shop but over time dust will build up on the dome I am sure.  We will have to clean the dome periodically. I was looking at a product I put on my computer screen to repel dust to some extent on the domes or lens.  Do you think that would help?

I had been looking at this camera for my outside viewing but hadn't really considered it for inside.

I am ignorant to the camera options.  Does the varifocal lens make that much of a difference?

Verifocal means zoom and focus. Fixed lens means you cant.  Inside corners of a building is better for dome cameras. Bullets are better for outside corners.  Domes are typically better for being mounted in the middle of a wall outside or in.  You can mount bullets or domes either way. Outside corner of a house is better for a bullet normally because you can angle the camera from mount. A dome camera you cant. That is why Domes are better for inside corners.
