Panasonic PTZ IP Cameras

wv-sw598aThe Panasonic PTZ IP cameras include a very nice “fog compensation” mode, but don’t have the same wide dynamic range (WDR) as the newest Sony and Hanwha (Samsung) PTZ cameras. You can select the 1.3 or the 2.0-megapixel resolution model.

The 30X optical zoom and a 2-megapixel sensor, allows you to recognize a person’s face from about 800 ft away. For comparison, Axis provides a maximum of 20X zoom while Sony has a 30X zoom lens on its PTZ camera.  Samsung (Hanwha) beats them all with the 32X optical zoom lens.
