Axis M3004-V and M-3005-V cameras
The Axis M3004-V and M-3005-V camerasare low cost cost mini-dome cameras for indoor applications. They are housed in very discreet vandal resistant mini-dome housings, just 4″ wide and 2″ deep . The M3004-V features a high definition 720p image sensor and an 80 degree field of view, while the M3005-V provides full 1080p video streams and provides a very wide 108 degree field of view. The M3005-V provides stunning image clarity especially considering it’s $400 price tag making it our favourite low cost indoor camera.
Both cameras are POE powered requiring only one cable for power and data transmission which reduces installation costs and keeps wiring tidy. The can even be installed right over your existing data network with no additional cabling required. Both models include SD card slots for on board video storage making for a perfect pairing with Axis Camera Companion software, a very low-cost high definition video solution.
The cameras are suitable for wall or ceiling mounting and work very well in in corners of rooms. There are also a variety of mounting accessories available including kits for mounting on standard electrical boxes and pendant kits for installations on high ceilings.

The video below shows a clip from the M3005-V camera. In order to view the video in full resolution, press the Play button then click on the “Settings” button (looks like a gear cog) in the bottom right corner of the video window and select “1080p”. It takes Youtube some time to shift into full 1080p streaming. You will therefore probably need to play the video through twice in order to see it at full resolution.
