Hmm, that seems like an awfull lot of money, and it doesn't even seem to have a weatherproof case.

How about something like THIS instead for $89?

Hi BraveSirRobbin

Hum, very interesting.

1/3" Sony Ex View
0.01 Low Lux
480 Line Resolution
All Weather

At $89.00 !

Hum, far better than the AC-3232 ;)

And the price is very good, $20 lower than the next best price in the net and $30 than the AC-3232 !

I have two "beginner" questions regarding the EX-200C's optic. (The user manual is not available online)

Can the focus be adjusted manually, it is possible to change the lens in these bullet cam ?

Thanks for your fast reply and excuse my English ;)

I'm not a camera expert but I believe one of the reasons these bullet style cameras are so cheap is that there is no focus or capability to change lenses.

I think you guys should get this, then let me know how it works (so I can see if I want to order one) ;) .

According to this eBay seller, it has a 3.6mm lens and it is easy to change to 2.97,6,8,12 or 16mm. He also sells lenses for $20, which I couldn't find of Direct Sales site.

I wonder how the EX-200C compares to the EX-230C, since the 230C has higher lux (.05 vs .01), lower lines (380 vs 480) and higher price. It does have the ExView SUPERHAD, while the 200C appears to just have ExView. The 230C is not listed on the Intellicam site and the 200C was not on the Direct Sales site a few months ago, so maybe the 230C is on its way out and being replaced with the 200C?

FYI, that camera that I linked to above is discontinued and no longer available.
The EX-200C is discontinued from Direct Sales? I ordered one yesterday morning, so they have had two business days to process my order. They haven't cancelled it yet, but they haven't hit my credit card either.

Wayne;

I talked to someone there via phone today around noon pacific time. I gave him part number "EX-200C" and said it was on the site for $89.

He looked that up and then stated that it was discontinued and no longer available. Let me know if you get yours, in the mean time, you may want to give them a call.

I kept forgetting to call them about it, but I got a shipping notice today (10 days after ordering).
