- Bullet Camera with 5-50mm Varifocal Zoom Lens
- Bullet Camera with 6-22mm Varifocal Zoom Lens
- Bullet Camera with 2.8-12mm Varifocal Zoom Lens
Hey there and thank you for checking out this video from Orange Security – we make security cameras simple. Located here in beautiful South West Florida we serve the whole of the United States of America.
Let’s take a look at our bullet cameras with varifocal lenses. We stock three of these with adjustable lenses. The ultra-long range 5-50mm lens. 6-22mm lens and 2.8-12mm lens. Zoomed in, the 5-50mm lens will give identification at about 230 feet which is huge! The 6-22mm lens will give identification at about 80 feet. The 2.8-12mm lens will give identification at about 50 feet.
They vary in size slightly, but they all work the same way. For the purpose of this video, we will look at the 2.8-12mm.
The connections for both power and video are industry standard. Video is BNC. There are 2. The yellow one is the full HD output and the white is standard definition analog output allowing you to connect to an older existing recorder.
The joystick in the cable allows you to access the on screen display menu for the camera. Here you can make adjustments to settings on the camera. A word of warning – the factory default settings are pretty good and we wouldn’t recommend changing them without our advice.
Included with the camera is the option cable management bracket – this not only give about an inch of space for the cable connections to be made but it also makes fitting the camera easier and quicker.
There are 2 hex keys included for bracket adjustment and a locking bolt if the cable management bracket is used.
First, let’s look at the bracket. The larger of the 2 included hex keys is for the two larger bolts on the bracket. The smaller is used for the grub screw on the base plate.
Having loosened them off you can see the flexibility of this camera bracket. You can have the camera pointing in any direction and still keep the horizon level.
When using the optional cable management base, fit the base to the mounting surface first. Then the camera fits to the base and locks in place. The locking bolt then is used to lock the camera to the base. This also uses the larger of the 2 hex keys included.
Next up, let’s take a look at how to adjust the zoom and focus on the camera. You will need a large flat blade screwdriver. These two thumb turns are actually protective and waterproof caps. First, remove these and you will find the two adjusters. One for focus, the other for zoom.
Using the large flat blade screwdriver make minor adjustments to the zoom and focus while watching the video output until you have the perfect settings.
Once done, refit the two caps and you are good to go!
There we have it – one of our most popular camera body designs in a great package with a range of varifocal zoom lenses.
