Digital Cameras / Camcorders

A digital camera or digicam is a camera that encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction. Most cameras sold today are digital, and digital cameras are incorporated into many devices ranging from PDAs and mobile phones (called camera phones) to vehicles. Digital and film cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.  Digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

Hi,

We are looking for a security camera that can alert the user if motion is detected and does not take up much bandwidth.

We have Nest cameras which are on 24/7 but the problem is that they take up a lot of bandwidth.

Here is my criteria for the camera we are looking for:

- Less than €100
- Does not constantly take up bandwidth 24/7; only uses bandwidth for tasks such as notification sending, if user wishes to access pictures taken by the camera,etc.
- Does not need a subscription
- Can send a message to a person's phone when motion detected or when the camera sees someone
- Released in the past 2 years or more recently

What would be recommended as the best security camera with the above criteria?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hello all,

I am seeking advice for a home surveillance DVR system but I cannot find a system that meets my requirements.

[EDITED WITH UPDATED DETAILS]

Hello all,

My main disappointment comes from the apparent reality that no one seems to offer a hybrid WiFi and Wired DVR box. I don't know why because I can imagine that nearly everyone has an environment where some points allow for wired cameras and other places around their home are more suitable for a WiFi camera.

In my case, the DVR and my outside patio camera allow for an easy wired camera install but nearly every other point (door), kitchen/dining room are more suitable for WiFi.

My requirements are really modest for a home surveillance system.

  • DVR box with 1 - 2 TB hard drive for a month or so worth of recording.
  • Automatic email notifications when a specific threshold is met.
  • Access to live and recorded video via smart phone
  • 2 wired cameras, 2 WiFi cameras and expansion to 8 cameras
  • Ideally - A peep hole camera for our front door (not sure why this is so difficult to find).

Currently, I have a Lorex surveillance system and I have two WiFi cameras. The WiFi cameras are not integrated with the Lorex, so I have multiple applications and I really want to replace all of this with a single system.

Thank you.

I have an Intel USB Video Camera III which was working fine until I installed Windows 10 64 bit on my computer. Now the camera no longer works, and is only recognized by the computer as a "USB video device". In Device Manager, under Properties, I get the following message: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)
{Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful."

I then went on the Intel website to see if I could get the proper driver for the camera, and all I get there is the most unhelpful following message: "There are currently no downloads available for Intel USB Video Camera III"

Is there a way to get this camera working on a Windows 10 64 bit computer? Thank you.

Dear All,

We have installed Huawei  IPC6225-VRZ-SP Bullet IP Cameras on different location for surveillance. We are in strange situation that three cameras have been burned one by one installed on CISCO POE Switch 2960 X. All other cameras are also installed on different CISCO 2960 switches and working fine. Can any one please help to rectify the issue. This is due to high voltage generating by 2960 Switch or may be any other reason.

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and one of my online sites I visit to make a purchase wants my DL ID, and further they want to activate my web camera so that they could take a picture of myself, my identity.  This site is for bitcoins.  The present small camera is a Logitech HD 720P.  The site says that the picture is not that good enough to compare with the  jpeg license I uploaded.  Thus the need to purchase a better one that would do the job, with the cost bearing in mind. Thank u for your suggestions. Regards

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 (but soon to upgrade to Note 8). When I go travelling I always take with me my trusty Nikon D7100 digital SLR with 18-85mm lens. Smartphones can take great photos these days but are still lacking due to their lens.

Conversely, my Nikon camera, although a very good camera, is heavy, cumbersome, and I also need to bring the case and charger.

Further, I can't backup to cloud, edit, or share (email, Whatsapp) my pictures directly from the SLR camera. For this I'd need to bring a laptop with me, whereas with my phone I can do these three things from the phone. Also my phone can GPS-tag the photos, whilst to do this on my Nikon I'd need to buy a separate GPS unit to attach it to the camera, thereby making it even more cumbersome.

Viewing recently taken photos on a smartphone screen is much more pleasurable, not to mention the pinch-to-zoom. Also, my phone these days has more free storage space than my camera has in total.

So, to my question... Is there a way that I can have the best of both worlds? Does there exist some sort of 'cradle', where I can attach my current Nikon lenses, and a shoulder strap, and then just slot in the phone to turn it into a fully functional DSLR camera?

As for connection between the phone and the 'thing', I initially thought WiFi, but I think that this would cause a Osh with the viewfinder, so probably USB-C would be best. Plus, with a cable you could potentially or a battery inside the thing which could be used to charge …

So we have about 12 cameras at our company that records all day every day.The 1TB drive in the Platinum dvr gets full super fast and we are unable to retreive old recordings from a couple of months back. So i was looking at some unlimited cloud backup solutions like like Crashplan and Backblaze. Now Crashplan is good as it allows me to not only backup all files but also all mapped network drives. is there a way for me to access the DVR hdd from my file server and somehow map it to my server so the backup software can upload all the recordings? Any alternatives? Any advice would be appreciated:)

Hi,

I would like advice or a recommendation for security cameras that would have good color detail at night.
My cameras show fuzzy images in the shadows. :)

What would I look at to pick a very good color detail day and night?
Zoom in ability?
180 degree turn ability and ? tilt 45 degrees?

I am thinking of getting a couple more cameras to see how I like them at my house.
Then may add to my rental house.

Should I look at anything else that I missed?

Thank you,
BillC

Hello Friends,

Can anyone pls advice if any such VMS software is available (Free/paid) which can be used in front-end to monitor all CCTV cameras.

I mean to ask such Unify VMS software for different NVR & IP Cameras.

Currently I am using HKVISION cameras with KHVISION NVR & Siqura camera with DIVA VMS application.

But now I need to have a common window (App-for windows & Mobile) where-in I could club all cameras & can monitor from single window.

Regrets for long explanation.

Looking forwards to have your experts advice.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

hi,

can someone recommend a security camera for my home to install?

my next door neighbour happened to see somebody trying to break into their house around about 5 ocklock in the morning. They could see a dark figure but not the face as it is still a little bit dark. Now they are planning to install a security camera.

I told them, i will supply and install it but looking for advice on the best one and affordable for home used.

We live in the pacific and order most of the time from the following supplier in New Zealand:

www.pbtech.co.nz

Can someone recommend the best one used for home?
