John, hard to disagree.

But are there counter arguments for the body camera that readers might consider:

  • Conceal the aim of the camera - there are places where we want offenders to know we are watching
  • Ease installation - changing focus on a dome requires removal and replacement of the dome cover, requiring more time and risk of affecting the focus
  • Maintenance - to clean the lens of a dome, the cover has to be removed and replaced - more time and again this could affect the focus
  • Lens options - the 50mm lens we want for facial images does not fit in the dome

Thanks for the valuable reporting

Michael,

Thanks. We are doing similar posts for box, bullets, cubes, etc. Will go over their benefits / integrator uses there.
