True day/night functionality, as well as SSNRIII technology, also add to the applications of the cameras in terms of flexibility and performance features.

Is A Bullet Camera Better Than A Dome Camera?

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, What is a Bullet Cam with tags , , on December 30, 2010 by zackduncan

Bullet and Dome CamerasThere is a wide range of security cameras on today’s market. You can pretty much get anything you want like a PTZ camera, dome camera, IP camera, box cameras and even bullet cameras. But which one is the best? Determining what the best camera is is all very personal. It depends on your situation, what you want monitored, how much you are willing to spend etc… However, when people compare cameras they tend to compare two types specifically, bullet and dome cameras. So which is better?

Bullet cameras have long since been the favorite among consumers. Back in the day, c-mount cameras were the most widely used and could be seen being used by government organizations, celebrities and for private security. Bullet cameras really took off back in 2000 but, like dome cameras, they have always been around. Dome cameras have been popular in places like malls and other commercial settings.

But how do you determine which one is better? Are there any real, overwhelming differences between the two? The answer to that question is no. They are made up of primarily the same things including a lens, circuit board, chip-set and casing. But as to which one is better, it really depends on your situation and how you wish to use them.

According to the opinion of one of our security camera professionals here at the office, bullet cameras are tentatively better. His reasoning is that with a bullet camera, you get better picture quality and you are not forced to look through a tinted dome case as you are with a dome camera. Our professional also states that bullet cameras are easier to set up and install than dome cameras. Wiring and mounting for a bullet camera is simple and easy.

Choosing one over the other ultimately depends on your situation and what you want to record. But if you are still unsure about what type of camera to get, you can always call a security consultant from They will evaluate your current situation and determine the very best setup for you.
