5 out of 5 eggsAxis 210 Network Camera

Pros: It can be viewed from any internet enabled computer. 20 users can simultaneously view the camera. Has the capability of overlaying custom text along with the date and a logo or image onto the video. Lenses can be changed based on the needs. The realtime video can be viewed in both MPEG-4 and JPEG formats, eventhought there's a very slight .5-1 second lag between what is happening and what you see when viewing in MPEG-4, the benefit is that when viewing MPEG-4 the load that is placed on the network is a fraction of what JPEG viewing requires. Multizone motion detection. 30fps at all resolution, depending on lighting conditions 20-28fps is more realistic in good lighting, and around 6fps in poor lighting. Also, Axis camera support is second to none. After registering on their website (which is free) in order to get firmware updates and support, I've posted a half dozen questions regarding this and another Axis network camera, and within a few hours the questions were answered.

Cons: Price, but this is one of the few cheaper cameras Axis offers. It being being more on the professional side of network cameras compared to other brands, it should be used with Axis Camera Station, which isn't cheap, but is first class in performance. Other surveillance software packages I've noticed stress the computer too much, don't deliver the frame rate that is needed (usually between 5-15) and aren't as stable as Camera Station.

Other Thoughts: The lens that the camera comes with is a good general purpose lens, but you should consider buying a CS mount lens that would fit your needs better. A varifocal 2.8~12mm f1.3 1/3" lens for instance does a good job at covering either a wide area or a specific small area, meanwhile maintaining good low light performance. For those of you who are new to lenses, remember that the lower the F number (in last example F1.3) the better the low light performance can be achieved, BUT the depth of field at that setting is much less. Also, depending on how much video needs to be recorded, you might need to purchase another hard drive for the computer that will be doing the recording.
