" ...  I bought two of these and am very happy with them, especially the ability to turn the camera, zoom in, and use a two way microphone remotely.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I wanted more resolution and zoom because I have a long driveway. ... I was hoping with the 3x optical zoom and 5mp boost, I’d get a better picture. ... But unless they were close, it was hard to make out their features (forget zoom) ... · 3x zoom – seems to work ... There’s a slight delay as expected but volume was clear on the E1 zoom and via the mic ... · Auto focus – with the zoom option, unlike the E1 pro, there’s a bit of a need to adjust the focus of the picture.  ...  "
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.  ...  "

" ...  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.  ...  "
