The dome security camera is one of the most popular types of digital video security camera in use today. Thanks to modern technological advances a lot of electronic power can be packaged inside a small 3.5 inch diameter dome camera. Not only are they small and powerful, but the average dome security camera is light weight as well (in most cases weighing just under one pound), which makes it easy to mount just about anywhere.
Today, there are three standard types of digital video camera based on shape; the box type, bullet type, and dome security camera. How, what, and where the camera is used usually dictates the type, although user preference is also a factor.
