This is my second camera and I love them even on a Mac.

  • Summary: I bought one of these 5 years ago to watch my dog while I'm at work. I keep the browser window open in the corner of my laptop all day and it works great. I am on a Mac so the functionality is not as good as on a PC but, I can pan and tilt remotely. I can also access it on my iPhone and iPad. The web link is free - no monthly cost. Panasonic has a great help line for setting it up. I bought this one on eBay because I bought a bigger house and want more views.

In summary, this is crapware.

wheeling-und-dealing, Ebay

  • Summary: Nice baby camera but that's where it stops. You don't pay $300 for a baby camera or if you do, you probably have too much disposable income. For the price you are expecting to get a camera with pan/zoom capabilities AND remote access, which is key. This is where this product falls flat on its face. No Mac support of any kind. No software, video feed only but no sound. Connecting it wirelessly requires a PhD and is a b!tch and half.

Takes all your bandwidth

mlm, Panasonic

  • Summary: I have three and have always faulted my isp and router for poor download speeds and breaks. I experimented with the cameras my DL speed wirelessly is now 7 mb up from the former 1.5 due to ONE camera. Connected the camera wired still suck all the bandwidth.
  • Pros: Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
  • Cons: need separate internet

Great cam, however no longer a deal.

jlaylor, Ebay
10 April 2012
  • Summary: I have 4 of these cams. Extremely reliable, easy to program, and from a reputable manufacturer. Bottom line, however, is that these are probably about to become obsolete, at least in terms of expenses. There are newer cams that do, essentially, the same thing for 1/3 of the price.

Good camera, for 2004, but not anymore

Mike005, Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: After reading all of the glowing reviews, I had to try it out. I can understand why so many people loved it, 6-8 years ago, but there are several other cameras on the market now that offer better video quality for less money. The Foscam camera has much better video quality and offers all the same options, but sells for $90. I connected both cameras and viewed them on the same monitor at the same time, side by side. Hands down, the Foscam looked much better.

Excellent IP Camera from a leading brand

Tony, Panasonic
17 November 2011
  • Summary: I have 4 of these working non-stop for about 2 years. I have found them indispensable. I can remote monitor from anywhere and receive notification e-mails and file uploads when the cameras are triggered. The set-up, especially if you have more than one unit requires an understanding of port-forwarding so an ability to read FAQ's and blogs is probably necessary. Once I'd sussed it I found it straightforward.
  • Pros: Convenient, versatile, reliable
  • Cons: Difficult to use
