Testing Samsung WiseNet III Panoramic Camera

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 25, 2014

Samsung's IP video expansion efforts continue with their recent panoramic offerings. Their SNF-7010 [link no longer available] series claims true WDR and uses their WiseNet III chip.

IPVM bought an SNF-7010 and tested it head to head against Axis, Brickcom and Vivotek panoramic cameras (from our previous panoramic test series - see 1, 2, 3).
