AXIS P3225-LV is a 60ips 1080p fixed dome camera with a 1/2.8-inch sensor, a  3–10.5mm f1.4 varifocal lens with remote zoom and focus, Zipstream for bandwidth and storage reduction, 25m OptimisedIR range, IP52-rating for dripping water and dust resistance, and IK08-rating for impact-resistance. 

What are SEN’s first impressions? Solid against backlight, too easy to set up, excellent fast zoom and focus via the camera browser, Zipstream compression really is wonderful – we can confirm that once again – but the big strength so far seems to be high contrast and natural colour rendition that offer extreme levels of detail at 1080p. 

There's something weirdly 3 dimensional about the texture of the brick and Besser block walls in this image…this is about 6mm.

At mid zoom settings in full sun, this Axis dome is looking very nice indeed and at full zoom detail is superb with face recognition out past 16 metres. This is at 10.5mm.
