You can spend $1200 and not get a better picture...

 

Easy setup, excellent bang for the buck. Complete, detailed documentation. Free web site.

Slight amount of 'Engrish' in docs. Otherwise, none, given other current market offerings.

The Picture is Clear - Skip this Camera!

 

Pan and Tilt, basic setup is simple, low price compared to Axis 2100 series.

Time/motion triggers do not work, 10 Mbit/s only connection, poor tech support, no returns.

The Picture is Clear - Skip this Camera!

Fun but Unreliable

 

Easier setup than Axis 2100. Fun tilt & pan.

Networking not reliable enough for security cam use. Pics occasionally just stop coming.

Fun but Unreliable

 

We've been working with two of these cams for two months, trying to use them for indoor security. The initial setup was as easy as I've seen. Axis 2100's were much more difficult to get started with.

Easier setup than Axis 2100. Fun tilt & pan.

Feature rich but poor picture

 

Having previously owned other network cameras I was excited to find the new Panasonic KX-HCM10 was not available and had a very handy pan and scan feature so I when I needed another camera I gave this one a try.

Easy to set up, handy pan & scan feature, excellent compatibility

Poor picture quality
