I-Spy cameras are ideally suited for security application. A key aspect is for the final pictures being sufficiently clear to stand up in a court of law. See samples pictures in gallery for I-Spy70. Both the I-Spy47 and the I-Spy70 cameras will produce the desired results. This is because the I-Spy cameras do NOT interpolate the pictures. The image sensor is full size for the 5 mega pixel pictures.
Some other manufactures use a very small image sensor and then interpolate the pictures by adding in pixels by a software process. They add pixels electronically to the original. This takes away the crispness, density and sharpness of the picture producing a large picture but with soft lines. Often not clear when enlarged. We do not recommend use the video clips. The resolution (640 x 480) is too low for police prosecution.
SECURITY CAMERA LOCATION
Best pictures are produced as close to the target as possible. The larger the subject in the picture, the less you need zooming, the clearer the picture will be. However balance needed. The closer the camera is to the subject the more possibility of the camera being discovered and thus damaged by an unwanted intruder. There are a number of possibilities to reduce detection of the camera.
Below are a few to consider:
I-Spy cameras can successfully record number plates. In the day time all camera will do this job. However only the I-Spy70 will do a good job at night time.
