Customer Reviews:
  • Q-See AOCDC CCD Camera
    For the pricing of these cameras I expected a little better picture. The overall picture is good, Night vision alright, but when it comes to details you can not even read a car plate 10 ft away. The motion sensor in this carmera works good also. I did try the lower priced camera(One Step Down) and did not like the picture at all. I wired and ran 8 cameras to my main computer using a Q-See PCI-E Card. After reseachering, to my amazement, that for the money this setup/cameras works good for home or business....more info
  • Good day/night camera for the price
    After a bad experience with the Q-See $50 low-end camera, I decided to purchase one of these to see if it was any better. And I'm pleased to say, that it is! Since the cheap camera didn't work out, I decided to spend a bit more and use them for video surveillance and even recording. This camera is being used with 2 of the Q-See 4 channel PCI capture cards.

    The camera includes a long 60ft cable for video/power cable all in one. So you only need to have power at the source (ie. PC/DVR). This uses a BNC video only connection instead of RCA cables you typically see on the lower-end models. This one does not record audio.

    While I don't believe you can effectively see anything at 30ft in night vision mode, it is still usable. Anything less than 10-20ft is still acceptable. Day time picture quality is also good, but not great. It does have some issues in certain lighting conditions where the image can appear washed out. In particular when you are at a point where it's between going from day to night vision mode. As with most day/night cameras, night vision is in B&W.

    Pros:

    * Good day time picture quality (420 lines of resolution)
    * 6mm Lense for wide viewing angle
    * Acceptable night vision quality
    * Better stand/mount than cheaper models
    * Thin video/power cable (60ft)
    * Small size

    Cons:

    * Has some issues switching between day/night mode in certain lighting conditions
    * Somewhat expensive if you buy individually
    * Works better indoors than outdoors (more consistent lighting).
    * Would like bettery night vision quality.

    At $100 each, they are a bit expensive. My suggestion is to get the 4 pack and save $100 to $150. I basically got them at less than $70 each. With that in consideration, they are a much better value, and get a 4/5 rating.

    However, if you want to step up to a better model, you know it's going to be outdoors, and you don't mind the size - go with the QS2350C (see my review). ...more info
