D-Link ANZ has released the DCS-960L, a wireless camera that offers a real-time 180-degree view of a room, without any delay. The DCS-960L Wide Eye HD 180 camera eliminates the need for 2 or more cameras to see everything in a room – you see more with less, instantly.
“Previously cameras with this advanced level of technology were reserved only for businesses, however, that’s no longer the case,” said D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon. “D-Link has been pushing the boundaries of home security products as we know both safety and security are increasingly on people’s agendas. With that in mind it’s fair to say the DCS-960L Wide Eye HD 180 panoramic camera is a truly ground-breaking new way to achieve the ultimate surveillance of a room from a single device.”

I WASN’T sure what to think of the Bosch IP 5000 when I unpacked it – the sunshade and the overall camera are quite light but when it’s up and running you find that this a surprisingly good camera in the best tradition of motorised, remote auto focus bullets. I've really enjoyed working with the Bosch 5000 Bullet.
The F1.4 varifocal 2.7-12mm lens has the fastest zoom and refocus I’ve met – really, it’s barnstormingly fast. Pull the slider and refocus is right behind you – half a second behind – that’s exceptionally useful for real time operations. Notwithstanding some variable overexposure on the sunny side of the street with WDR on auto in 70,000 lux, the 5000 Bullet offers a strong and composite image at all times.
