Cable for a network IP camera

I assume that a network IP camera like the Panasonic BB-HCM331A needs a standard Ethernet RJ45 cable (Cat 5 or Cat 6) as well as a pair of 18 AWG power cables. Are there any combo cables available?

Not sure if you have the cameras, but here are some that use Power over Ethernet.

I haven't used these or other IP cameras, just checked on PoE when you brought that up. If it works for your selected camera it might be a nice option (but may also add cost).

I plan to make my own POE adaptors for the Panasonics. I found some short power leads to use so it sould be pretty easy.
