Canon today launched 3 new IP (IP meaning it connects directly to the network and has its own network IP address) cameras that support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). The Canon VB-M600VE is an outdoor dome-style camera with pan/tilt, the VB-M40 offers 20X optical zoom and can pan and tilt, while the VB-M600D dome cam offers a wide angle view and 3X zoom. Each new product also sport SD Cards slots as well.
The new cams offer 1280x960 resolution at 30 frames per second (fps) which is significantly higher than the usual 640x480 30/fps or even just 15/fps in other IP cameras. Canon has optimized the new cameras in low light conditions, though they don't seem to include IR LEDs so cams can see in the dark.
The Canon VB-M600VE, VB-M40 and VB-M600D will sell for about $1300, $2000, and $1000, respectively with availability in the next few months.
