When shopping for a c-mount security camera, it is important to remember that they do not come with a lens, which makes them both initially more expensive and more adaptable. Having a more expensive initial price tag does not tell the whole story, however, as most c-mount cameras become far less expensive in the long run. The reason for this is that often a c-mount camera can be repositioned in a security setup that has changed simply by buying a new lens rather than having to buy a new camera.
