Image Width Comparison

IN-9008 HD (4.2mm Lense) vs. IN-5905 HD (4.2mm Lense) vs. IN-5907 HD (8mm Lense) in [m] **

* The larger the distance between your camera and the surveillance area, the larger the area becomes that your camera´s image covers. For example, if the object is at a distance of 10m from your camera, your camera´s image will cover a width of 11.68m.

** The Model IN-5907HD only offers half the resolution, compared to the IN-9008HD, but - with its reduced angle of view - still offers a very detailed image. The camera model IN-5905HD uses a similar lense as the IN-9008HD (4mm vs 4.2mm focal length), with a slightly a bigger field of view because of its slightly bigger sensor and wider lense. This makes the IN-5905HD an interesting model, if the distance to the object is not that far to suffer from its lack of resolution.
