Design isn't one of this camera's fortes as the ribbed, barrel shaped
lens housing squatting between two plastic prongs wouldn't look out of
place in Fritz Lang's Metropolis. However, it can tilt through 90 degrees
and pan across 270 degrees giving it a much better range than Panasonic's
diminutive BL-C10. Rotation isn't smooth though as the motor moves the
lens barrel and holder in small steps resulting in a series of jerks
rather than a glide.
A Fast Ethernet port is located at the rear and
flanked by video and audio RCA sockets for connecting the camera to a TV.
There's also a four-pin connector block for adding external devices such
as relays, door bells, door sensors and so on.
