" ...  The night, zoom and panning options on this camera are very helpful. ... Other than that, this camera is great and better than other models that do not have the zoom or panning option.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I had the C2 Pro which I really liked but when they came out with the E1 Zoom, I thought I give it a try. ... I like the x3 Optic zoom functions.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Full PTZ functions for both movement and zooming. ... Xeoma allows doing a digital zoom, but an optical is much better as it can be hard to use the zoom feature right on the go. ... The digital zoom is really best for stationary use. ... Actually using a combination of optical zoom and digital zoom as the optical is good enough to have the whole crib in view and not much else while I use the digital zoom to have the baby fill the viewing area in the subsection of the crib he is in. ... This makes the optical only zoom not quite what I had hoped for, but it is good enough to see if the baby's eyes are open without having to use the digital zoom in Xeoma.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I bought this camera because it has optical zoom and 5ghz wifi connection and it surely does not disappoint.  ...  "
