C-Mount security cameras, like most models of security cameras, do face a weakness: c-mount cameras require considerable effort to be used outdoors. C-mount cameras are more sensitive than, for example, bullet security cameras, and considerable damage can be done to them by rain, wind, heat, or cold. If you need to use a c-mount security camera outdoors, you will need to purchase a housing and a mounting bracket. Some housings simply protect for rain and projectiles, whereas other are equipped with heaters and blowers to keep the temperature constant. Mounting brackets, just as they sound, enable c-mount cameras to be mounted on exterior walls.
C-mount cameras are still some of the best security cameras around, as their size allows them to always support the newest technology first. As with all technological advances, when a new technology is developed the first goal is to get it created, and the second step it to make it smaller. Because of this process, c-mount cameras are always the first type of security camera to be able to use a new technology. Right now, that technology is 1/2 inch chip sets. Most other security cameras can only use 1/3 or 1/4 inch chip sets. The size of the chip set is important as it defines two things: how well the camera can see in low level lighting conditions and the maximum resolution of the camera.
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.
