The dome is quite large, but that is their outdoor version. 

We've used quite a few of their 6mp Fisheye, with the indoor version and the concealed version. We do have a few outdoor versions as well, that's we've put in vehicles.

The indoor version is basically a plastic cover that snaps over the camera module, and the concealed versions is different all together.

Here is the 12 indoor, you can see the lack of a dome.

Not affiliated with OnCam or anything, just used a bunch of them, well the Pelco branded version of OnCam.

The dome is quite large, but that is their outdoor version.

So is the Axis version on his comparison, the Oncam outdoor is huge.  I've had customers complain to us about the aesthetics when mounted to the front of buildings.

Yes, as #2 says, all those cameras are outdoor models, and none of them use a dome the size of Oncam. Of all the past fisheye cameras we've tested (Avigilon, Axis, Dahua, Hanwha/Samsung, Panasonic, Vivotek), none have used a dome that size, either, only a lower profile one to cover the lens.
