Take A Snapshot Of a Digitally Zoomed In Area Of Camera?

Hello everyone. I require an indoor IR IP camera for a reception where visitors are registered. The camera should be a cube camera or one that can be eaisily kept at a reception desk. The client will open the camera interface via a web browser, digitally zoom in at the face of the person and take a snapshot. Problem is that most IP cameras give digital zoom, but save the snapshot at the resolution set in the stream, taking a snap of the complete pic and not just the zoomed area which I require. I used the Axis 212PTZ and am sure all other panoramic cameras with digital zoom will provide this feature but sadly the 212PTZ is not feasable for a reception and also is not IR based and needs good lighting.

Can you reccomend a good relatively low priced IP camera with POE and IR, whose firmware allows saving only the digitally zoomed area. I beleive a 2 megapixel camera should give a decent zoomed in face capture for a person standing between 5 and 10 feet from the reception.
