Dome Camera And Restaurant Lighting

Hi

I have been looking at a new Axis 33 range interior dome camera, recorded footage, as part of an overall inspection of the CCTV system in a restaurant. The contractor has installed it facing a hanging pendant light a few feet away. In low light and with the ceiling light switched on, the scene looking down and beyond the light at the dining tables is too dark to be of any use. Is the camera iris automatically closing in reaction to the ceiling light, thus rendering the images behind too dark to be useful? Or is it reacting to the light in some other way?

Thanks
