VIVOTEK FE8171V is the first fisheye fixed dome network camera from VIVOTEK, featuring detailed 3.1MP-resolution sensor with superb image quality. Equipped with a fisheye lens for 180 panoramic view (wall mount) or 360 surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount) without blind spots, this camera is able to provide an 8X wider field of view than a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the need for multiple camera installations. It is extremely suitable for monitoring open areas such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, and much more.
Would 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.
