The Watec WAT-230 VIVID G3.8 consists of a miniature board camera encased in a protective housing and equipped with a 3.8mm lens. A board camera is most often used in covert monitoring environments, but also presents a viable solution for various other security and non-security related CCTV applications, who for whatever reason, find themselves in need of an ultra compact camera solution. Although small in design, this camera features a CCD imager and employs a number of internal controls to maintain optimum performance in a variety of lighting environments. For added versatility, the included lens can be swapped for any one of Watec's line of miniature glass lenses.
