Worth every penny

Pros:Price, ease of setup, and functionality packed in this camera

Cons:Wireless range somewhat limited, no sound.

The Bottom Line: Inexpensive, feature packed, easy to setup, and great video quality. Whats not to like?


Have been looking to replace a Logitec camera that I have been running since 1997. This looked like attractive mix of functionality and price vs some of the more expensive D-Link cameras. Purchased new on eBay for $200. Had setup and running in less than 10 minutes via Ethernet, and maybe 2 more minutes to get wireless working. Highly recommend the free Viewnetcam.com service that Panasonics provides with camera to get your camera up and running quickly on the web. Love the ability to restrict access, FTP, and wealth of camera controls (motion quality and size, pan/tilt, brightness, etc.). Camera is small and can be placed just about anywhere. Also, very easy to incorporate video stream from ViewnetCam service into your own website seemlessly.

Notes: works on XP and Vista OS, and IE 6 and 7 and Firefox fine, make sure your router is set to enable UPnP (my older Linksys router just needed a firmware update to get UPnP capability, which I did prior to camera purchase in preparation - this made camera detection and setup on the router effortless). Wireless range of camera is somewhat limited despite a relatively strong wireless signal in my house - camera picked up signal up to about 40 feet or so.
