Choosing a camera form factor or style, is a combination of personal preference and application.

Choosing a camera form factor or style, is a combination of personal preference and application.

Bullet Cameras

Known as barrel cameras are very versatile and tend to be a good choice for outdoor use.  They tend to have a sun shield that protects the camera lens from direct exposure to the sun at it's low points during the day, and this shield also helps keep rain and snow from getting on the glass covering the camera lens.  These cameras tend to be wall mounted and the wiring will either be exposed or sometimes will route through the camera bracket.

Dome cameras 

More vandal resistant by nature of their dome cover and can be a little less obtrusive as they tend to have a smaller low profile design.  They can be wall or ceiling mounted, or mounted under a soffit.  They may be mounted directly to a wall or a wall mount bracket may be used in case the camera needs to point down on a sharp angle, and to help keep the elements off the lens area of the dome.  Dome cameras are available for both indoor and outdoor use.  There are traditional dome cameras as well as variations that may be called snail shell or eyeball dome, as well as turret domes that look almost like a barrel pointing out of the dome frame.

Box cameras 

The original standard and may be favoured by some installers as they are often sold without a lens, so the installer can choose a lens that meets the application.  They are often seen indoors where vandal resistance isn't a concern, but they can also be used outdoors if they are mounted inside a weatherproof enclosure.

Pan/Tilt or Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras 

A variation on the dome style but rather than being mounted and aimed in a fixed direction, they can be remotely controlled.  They can pan, tilt, and sometimes feature a remote controllable zoom lens so the operator can move the camera around to follow a subject or get zoom in for better detail.  Generally pan/tilt cameras are manually controlled by an operator either on site or remotely situated.  But some PTZ cameras feature auto-tracking so the camera can stay zoomed out looking at an overview of the area, until something moves, at which time they will zoom in and/or follow the subject.  Care should be taken here because multiple 'targets' are a problem with auto-tracking cameras at times, and they are more rare and more expensive.
