The camera can be viewed and controlled from a standard Web browser, video display, or even a compatible cell phone or PDA 1 and requires no additional software for the PC that you're viewing it on. All of the other required software, including control software (TCP/UDP) and e-mail software (SMTP), is already inside the camera. (BR)(BR) Bring Any Image Right Up Close (BR) Equipped with a 42x zoom function (a 21x optical zoom and a 2x digital zoom 2 ), the camera lets you zoom in and out in a total of 12 steps (10-step optical zoom and 2-step digital zoom) to view objects that are close or far away.

Up to eight shooting positions can be registered in advance, so you can aim the camera exactly where you want it.
