180 Degree Security Camera Photos
The above image was captured using a AHD-BL25. The camera was 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.
This is another image captured by the AHD-BL25. Mike is positioned directly below the camera to demonstrates how the fish eye lens provides an ultra wide angle. 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.
This infrared surveillance image was captured by the AHD-BL25. Mike is positioned about 6 feet in front of the camera when all lights in the room were off. There is a small amount of ambient light from the fire exit signs at the exit of the front door.
This photo shows where the camera mounted to the ceiling by the CCTV Camera Pros sales floor at their office. You can see the camera on the left hand side of the ceiling.
