Vista VBC600If there are two characteristics or specifications that you would want in a bullet camera, they should definitely be the ability of the camera to record clearly in not only daytime settings but also nighttime settings. You also want one that has the ability to record long-range. These two specifications ensure that you won’t miss a thing.

Well, bullet camera specialists Vista have just released their newest camera, the VBC600, which is capable of recording in the daytime, nighttime and at long range, all the best features rolled into one small package. The VBC600 features a 1/3″ Sony Super-HAD CCD imaging sensor and boasts an impressive high resolution picture of 600TVL. The VBC600 also comes with 0.1Lux (color)/0Lux (with IR on) low light operation.

The VBC600 has a fast and easy installation process and the 9-22mm varifocal lens can be used to give you a precise field of view. Adjusting the lens is also easy and can be done effortlessly by using adjustable external rings. The VBC600 has integrated 850nM IR LEDs that allow for perfect nighttime recording. The quality of your image can be enhanced even further with the introduction of a split-glass solution. This prevents any internal reflection from the illumination of the IR.

There are a lot of advanced functions that come along with the VBC600 including 3DNR, DRC and Sense-Up. Setup of these functions is made easy thanks to a remote setup tool with integrated joystick. This allows you to easily access the cameras on-screen display menu. According to Mark Pritchard, Divisional Director of Vista, “The VBC600 features Smart LED technology, which automatically reduces the intensity of IR illumination, eliminating ‘whiting out’ of objects passing close to the camera.”

Pritchard went on to say, “Allied to its long range capability providing covert illumination up to 40 meters, the new bullet camera is ideal for a wide range of external applications.” Vista is clearly on a roll with their bullet camera line.

What Do You Really Know About Bullet Cameras?

Bullet CamerasYour average everyday surveillance kits have bullet cameras as a part of the package. What may surprise you is that the shape of the camera has absolutely nothing to do with an actual bullet from a gun, only that it is cylindrical in shape.

Bullet cameras are pretty small in size and are not terribly expensive which is why they are one of the most popular security cameras for consumers. They can also be mounted indoors and outdoors making them extremely versatile.

Bullet cameras are also the most popular cameras used for recording footage and sending it to viewing or recording equipment. While bullet cameras are small, they do get larger as you need ones for recording longer ranges.

Bullet cameras are also very useful when it comes to installation. They are usually mounted in hard to reach locations like on high walls or ceilings, and most of the wires are located inside the casing, making it extremely resistant to tampering.

However, if that is not secure enough for you, then there are a lot of wireless bullet camera solutions that you could look into acquiring. These cameras, as well as others, are usually supplied with mounting brackets and even sun shields.

If you didn’t know, bullet cameras are also renowned for their excellent image quality and video capturing abilities. You can get them in black and white or color or even infrared for areas of poor or no light and night time surveillance.

If you are looking for a versatile and flexible camera as well as one that has features like water resistance and outdoor capabilities, then you should definitely consider a bullet camera.
