The above image was captured using the HD-TVI-BL180. The camera is mounted in a medium sized room at CCTV Camera Pros office in West Palm Beach, Florida. This room is 29 feet wide by 16 feet deep. All of the lights are on in the room so that the camera is operating in daytime / color mode.
Here is another image captured by the HD-TVI-BL180. Mike is positioned directly below the camera to show-off the ultra wide angle that this fish-eye lens provides. It is slightly less than 180 degrees but not by much. You will notice there is a small section of the room cutoff on the right size. The effective angle of the lens is actually 170 degrees. As with most 180 degree security cameras, it is slightly less than true 180 degrees.
Here is an infrared surveillance image captured by the
AHD-BL25 (the 1080p AHD format version of this camera). The HD-TVI-BL180 will perform the same as the AHD-BL25 whn in infrared / night vision mode. Mike is positioned about 6 feet in front of the camera. All of the lights are off in the room. There is a small amount of ambient light from our fire exit signs at the exit of our front door.
