Excellent camera

  • Excerpt: Packaging was extreme, very protective. Fast shipping (signature required). Documentation is challenging (3 stars there), I am still working through the numerous options. Image (at various zoom levels) is excellent. Very easy to access images on phone (BB Q10) on local network, have not accessed successfully through cellular network yet. Excellent phone support.
  • Pros: Compact, Discreet

Good camera overall

  • Excerpt: Great quality images but it does have a learning curve attached to it. This is the second one I bought. (Lighning destroyed the first one). A more comprehensive set of instructions would be nice and a more simplified software interface would be a plus. The pop up boxes that detail the various settings and options don't detail anything so it's a bit of trial and error to get stuff to work correctly.
  • Pros: Image Quality, Long range resolution
  • Cons: Ease of set up, No detaied instructions

An all Around Great Camera

  • Excerpt: This camera is about the best you can buy at this price for a PTZ. I have installed this in a dome outside. The sharpness this camera provides is outstanding. Very fast Pan and Tilt. The 18x zoom is amazing! H.264 provides very clear images with high FPS. The next step up is the AXIS P5522-E which runs about a grand more (even after buying a dome for this camera for outdoor use). This camera also has a higher resolution sensor. I let a friend do a review of the camera.

Great camera - horrible firmware

  • Excerpt: This camera has wonderful optics, great options like motion detection and tracking, but the firmware is so awful I am not sure I will use it again. I love the camera, but the company software makes it so bad to use. Maybe they will improve it, but so far they have not. Some of the buttons aren't in the right places and some don't work no matter what you try. Again it is a great camera! BUT, the firmware is horrible.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Complicated To Operate, Hates Firefox, Poor Software

very powerful, but has limitations

  • Excerpt: I would give this a 5 for the camera itself. The zoom is amazing & PTZ is quick and quiet. I downgraded it a notch because the software is quite difficult to configure even though I've setup other panasonic software. The problem is that they use a different line of software for the WV line than the consumer models. Therefore I can't use one piece of their software to monitor all my panasonic cameras.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Complicated To Operate

WV-SC385 Super Dynamic HD Dome Network C

  • Excerpt: Good quality hardware but the software interface is a bit of a challenge getting the system set up. I'm still trying to figure some settings to email image capture. This is used to monitor a vacation house. Very good images. Low light quality could be better but not a deal breaker.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
