By Ethan Ace, Published Aug 21, 2012, 08:00pm EDT (Info+)

Low-light and WDR capability are perhaps the two most sought-after features in surveillance, but usually cameras are made to handle only one or the other well, not both. Now, Axis has announced the latest in their P33 series domes, the P3384, featuring both WDR and Lightfinder low-light capability. In this note, we look at the features of these cameras, their potential impact, and how they compare to other WDR and low-light models from Sony, Pelco, and Panasonic.
