Axis Goes Covert (P12 Pinhole MP)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 04, 2012

Try finding an IP pinhole camera or a MP pinhole camera. Even in 2012, it is nearly impossible and the choice is essentially analog or nothing. Attempting to solve this problem is Axis's new P12 release. Of course, Axis is neither alone nor first. Earlier this year, Mobotix released a similar offering, the S14. In this note, we examine the features and pricing of the Axis P12 comparing it both to analog and Mobotix.
