Summary: In July 2011, I bought two Axis security cameras for my front and back entrance. They worked well for awhile and then started developing a myriad of issues ranging from lost IP addresses, blurry images and several other mind-boggling problems, one of which I believe has to do with hacking. The company even had to develop a patch to fix the problems, but the fix only lasted for a short time.
Summary: We have over 60 AXIS cameras in our facility and they have a great picture and the cameras are easy to setup. The software the is provided works pretty well also. The cameras are a little pricey once you purchase a license for the software and the camera itself but in the end you have a pretty stable system. We've had very few cameras go bad over a 5 year period.
Summary: Summary: I purchased this camera to watch my bird feeder while I'm at work. I have mine set to take an image every 60 seconds and upload the JPG image via FTP to my website so I can view it from anywhere I have an internet connection. I have the camera looking out a window in my living room so it's out of the elements and can still see outside, but for the price, it does the exact task I purchased it for.
Summary: Overall This IP camera is great for streaming my fish tank using motion jpeg compression, when comparing this to other cameras I was impressed. Cons That said, I could not get H.264 compression streaming (this version takes up less bandwidth, 550kb/s vs 1 mb/s) to work over Internet after I got it working over the LAN, it just wouldn't show up whereas mjpg still would, go figure. e.g. rtsp://(ip/dns):554/axis-media/media.amp.

Summary: That Camera is Amazing, the AXIS products are the best !!!! This is why they are the head of the Video IP technology. I use Axis since 7 years ago, and every day they have a good improvements in each product. Just try to better the prices, and you will take more market.
Summary: Axis cameras are very solid. The web interface is a bit over complex though. For instance, to add FTP uploads, you need to visit a number of pages. Compare this to the D-Link DCS-930L mydlink-Enabled Wireless N Network Camera where the FTP config is all on one page. Axis gives you more options, but sometimes more isn't better. The DCS-930L gives you a very similar product plus wireless for about half the price.
Summary: I like that camera because of easy installation process. The only problem I have is no sound.. but it's my fault, I did not read product description. I stream from that camera directly to Wowza Server. It works great. Camera use about 1200-1600kbps with default settings and good quality video. (don't expect too much, video quality is just OK). Camera has IPv6 support.
