The size is more compact than expected and is made of thick cast aluminum. The dome plastic is thick. O-rings are used to seal interconnecting parts. There is a nylon string connecting the dome half to the base to keep it from dropping during installation and adjustment. Security screws are used to connect the halves and a wrench is included.
The Lens is a typical M12 that has been glued on either side of the threads to lock focus. I replaced the 2.8mm lens with an 8mm lens for a tighter view of a distant object. It has a mechanical IR cut filter that can be disconnected The IR LED board can be disconnected. This camera could make a decent astronomical camera if you can get the lens off. The "eyeball" enclosure has possibilities.
PRO: The Exmor R "Starvis" image sensor is very sensitive to light even in color mode. I can just make out stars in the night sky without too much WDR noise. The camera is very configurable through its web interface. Gain, color, BW, 2D & 3D WDR settings, white balance and more. The data rate can be set up to 12mbps which makes a very clear picture.
CON:The image sensor is 4:3 and if it is configured for 16:9, it stretches the 4:3 image. My Dericam S-1 addresses this by using the upper scan lines and discarding the rest for 16:9 setting. I could not get it to power up with PoE on a 100ft cable. May be a cheap cable.
This is a good camera for $50 with lots of possibilities.
