Samsung SNO-8081R Bullet Camera

SAMSUNG’s 5MP SNO-8081R bullet, distributed locally by EOS, incorporates a 1/1.8-inch 6MP CMOS sensor, a 3.6-9.4mm motorized varifocal lens with auto-focus, 120dB WDR, built-in IR to assist in low light applications and a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. This is a powerful and well-made camera that takes fixed surveillance capabilities to an elevated level. 

AS soon as you pick up SAMSUNG’s 5MP SNO-8081R bullet, you get a sense of its quality. Samsung makes nice gear and this SNO-8081R bullet camera is no different. The unit has a tilt-mount, a metal alloy body and a simple and detachable poly sunshade. The PoE SNO-8081R has IP66/IK10 ratings against environment and vandalism and proffers an operating temperature between -40 and 55C, which is at the upper end of good. Emerging from a heavy cross-cut rubber flange on the rear are RJ45, audio and I/Os. Wherever you look and touch, build quality is superb and attention to detail is exemplary.

Axis M3045-V Compact Dome Camera Review

Axis 1080p M3045-V dome camera with HDMI
Axis 1080p M3045-V dome camera with HDMI

New from Axis is the PoE 1080p M3045-V dome with HDMI and a highly flexible pan and tilt gimbal. This 1/3-inch progressive scan CMOS camera features a fixed 2.8m F2 lens, giving a wide 106-degree field of view and light sensitivity down to 0.25 lux. 

TRULY compact dome cameras face a tough task. Within their compact housings they’re required to offer broad and at times conflicting functionalities, including compact size yet quality optics and very wide field of view yet low distortion and high image sharpness. Adding pressure to the recipe is the demand for low price. Clearly, this class of camera is a compromise and what installers and end users want to know is whether or not the balance of compromise meets their requirements.
