Excellent, Great Capture
 
With the fish eye lens, you are able to get an amazing amount of area. The picture is crystal clear, and with the right software, very easy to control.

Too expensive, zoom not that good and already discontinued.
 
It's better than the Trendnet camera we tested, and much more expensive, but I was hoping for a better Zoom capability. Looked at lots of cameras and am now thinking that there just isn't one available at a reasonable price with the quality and functions I wanted.2/2/15 - Update: Ended up using this camera in our lobby because the quality just wasn't good enough for my original plan. Have since discovered that this camera has been replaced and isn't really supported that well, some of th...

Need for a one time event?
 
A great picture, with huge potential. With a lifespan that will shock you in it's shortness and frustrate you with its permanence. Out of the 6 of these I have purchased, three are now on the shelf... no video, no support, no repair. Axis only response "buy a replacement". At $600+ each, no Axis can only live on reputation for so long. They picked the path most traveled toward planned obsolescence.

Lacks Email Functionality
 
It's advertised as being able to send email "snapshots" to you. For example, if motion is detected, it snaps a picture and emails it to you. However you cannot use email providers like Gmail, Yahoo, MSN, etc. It is not compatible with the MAJORITY of all email providers. You have to either setup your own SMTP server or try to find one that supports relaying - a hard thing to find today.If you're a network engineer, setting this up should be no problem, but be warned otherwise.<...

Good quality camera
 
I like this camera, but it's not entirely what I expected. The web interface works well with Firefox & IE. It also works with Chrome, but the crosshair click action does not always work. I was expecting to be able to get a larger higher quality image with the zoom, but you basically have a large fish-eye view which when zoomed is corrected to look flat, but beyond that you can't really get a fine detailed image. It's also heavy and off-balance, which is ok for a wall or ceiling mount, but not...

Short life. No factory support.
 
I purchased over 30 of these cameras from AmazonThe good:1)Great definition2)Very wide angle.3)Solid state PTZ functionThe bad:1)Right after 2 years of operation, the image sensor goes bad and they start producing psychedelic colors, until they quit working. This happens even though they are indoors.2)Axis will not repair them, and will not sell you the image sensor. They just tell you to get new cameras.3)About half of the cameras ha...

Good IP Camera
 
Pretty good camera. First thing I would have liked to see is an included vertical tilt mount instead of the horizontal angle mount. I feel most people aren't trying to watch a hallway instead of watch a room. This camera has a very wide fish eye lens that distorts slightly, but that is expected. Gives you a great view of large spaces, but far away objects can get out of focus. Focus is adjustable, but the fish eye lens is better for wide and short viewing. Web interface is good, lots of cu...
