Fantastic design. Very good quality.
This camera is designed to fit into an open-space ceiling, drop-ceiling or similar area. Uniquely designed, the look is similar to some low-voltage spot-lights making it look less like a camera, and thus less obvious. However, it is not a covert camera in any way. This camera is in fact mounted in a ceiling mount elbow spot light housing.
The housing allows for rotation of 360 degrees (as opposed to camera angle of 360 degree field of view), with a little assistance temporarily removing some screws. The camera field of view is approximately 72 degrees. The camera itself was not centered in the glass portal, though this is merely a cosmetic issue. It did not affect camera view.
Once the camera location has been set, a screw can lock the tilt however there is no locking of the rotation/swivel. That could be done easily with some glue or silicon, etc. on the inside.
The whole camera is mounted using two included springs (and pre-installed supports) to secure it into a round ceiling hole (approx 10cm). There are no instructions how to mount the springs. I have not yet done this, though I suspect it will be minimally a adequate mounting system. For my purpose, I will likely create a more secure mounting system without the springs.
The camera itself seems to be of good quality; "1/3" Sony CCD, 3.6mm". In first tests it works quite well, resolution an camera clarity was good. Low light was not a significant issue with this camera, however at candlelight levels it was grainy.
The ~30cm split-cable was not connected to the camera in the box. Minimal effort was required to clip it into the small socket after clipping the cable fastener (which interfered with the cable anyway). The other end connected easily to a standard BNC cable and 12V DC adapter.
The included manual was not specific to this model. In fact almost none of the information contained related to this camera. Of the 13 numbered pages, one half of one page contained info related to this camera. Even the front cover pictures did not show this camera model. Nevertheless, manual is not necessary, but always desired.
The camera is unique among most non-IR dome(like) security cameras. With some minor improvements to the construction and design, this could become a very popular product among security camera installers.
Of final note, while this camera is not classified as vandal proof, it has an appearance that is more vandal-resistant than many documented vandal-proof cameras available. I would not classify it as such, though if mounted well it may rival some.
UPDATE: LITB has discussed this product with me, and I am hopeful they will take note of the very minor design issues which could, if improved, make this a top-notch product. If a future model of this camera is available soon, I would likely purchase many of them.
