PTZs can be especially challenging to select as the price range amongst product options can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. In our Camera Finder, we are tracking 90 IP PTZs from as low as $350 to as high as $3,300 (online) pricing.
Of these, Sony offers a dozen PTZs, having recently doubled their PTZ offerings. With so many product options, it can be challenging to determine the key differences and tradeoffs.
In this guide, we break down these differences and provide guidance on strengths and weaknesses.
Specific to Sony, we examine a number of key questions:
- What are the tradeoffs between the new 5th generation and previous PTZs?
- What are the tradeoffs between Sony's HD and SD PTZs?
- What options exist amongst pan and tilt ranges? How does this impact application best fit?
This is a companion guide to our Sony Fixed IP Camera review and part of our ongoing effort to breakdown camera offerings.
