Ratings and reviews

PTZOptics 12X-SDI Broadcast and Conference Video Camera (Gray)

PTZOptics 12X-SDI Broadcast and Conference Video Camera (Gray) SKU: PT12X-SDI-GY-G2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely featured, beautiful video If there's any little quibble, it's that the remote control that comes with the camera is slow. Adequate if you need to pick a spot, make adjustments and then leave the shot alone. Not great if you have movement to follow. Also, when off or returns to "Home" to shut down, the lens doesn't lock, it can be moved around. Not sure if that loosens or ruins the PTZ motors inside. Again, small quibbles. This camera isn't meant for movement, and I happen to be using this in a studio that I need to move around from time to time.Otherwise, clear images, quick auto focus. Pleased with purchase
