4 out of 5 eggsVivotek FE8181V Fisheye IP Camera

Pros: Purchased this camera used from a local security installer. I don't use it for security, but as a weather camera on my weather website. I have it installed on the roof of my house, powered through PoE. Camera image quality is great, and gives fantastic 360 degree views of the horizon and sky. Has been installed on the roof for 4 months now through late summer heat and early winter cold (I'm in Toronto, so gets both hot and cold) and has performed flawlessly.

Cons: Biggest con to me is that image stream from camera, if I don't use the on-board camera software (which only works fully with IE) is limited to a stream of the full 360 degree camera view. Some of these fisheye cameras allow for multiple independant streams of defined views from the camera, but not this one. I have to use other software to post-process this image to get panoramic and other views. The on-board software is fully featured, but a bit difficult to decipher (IMO).

Other Thoughts: Expensive camera (even at discounted used price that I got it at) but overall good quality.

5 out of 5 eggsWould have taken 6 analog cameras to do half what this does!

Pros: SUPER HAPPY WITH THIS CAMERA. Vivotek FE8171V does a 360 degree view with NO moving parts. That means this camera is going to last ...a lot longer than a moving part PTZ. It's all in the lens design/software. The video on Youtube sold me and with just this single camera I was able to get rid of 6 low quality analog cameras that you couldnt even see a detailed image with! The V at the end stands for Vandal proof just FYI to everyone. This also means its going to withstand harsh conditions outside where dust and rain might cause damage. I've seen that happen with other cameras in the past. Infrared/Night vision works well too. 2 year warranty is a BIG bonus.

Cons: Wish they made it in black like some of Vivotek's other cameras.

Other Thoughts: wasn't sure if the FE8172 version would be worth it for the extra bit of money. At 5MP you could get more detail out of further zooms but FE8171 works well for most applications.
