    quick correction to my post above. i did not see the 90 deg, just the 180 flip in the specification sheet.

    If it can be mounted vertically, flush against the wall, then this would be a win. I can't stand a mount that sticks out too much. :)

    Is it possible to mount it with the dome upwards? I am thinking about using this as a second weather cam.
    How many degrees can the cam tilt up and down?

    It probably isn't designed to handle rain from that angle and the more direct sunlight would cause the dome to degrade faster.

    Something like this: PTZ1A225U-IRA-N
    PTZ1A225U-IRA-N would be better suited though more expensive.

    Wow, this looks perfect for this usage. Unless a weather cam doesn't needs auto tracking, I never saw this cam before. Maybe because it's an American market version?

    Its somewhat expensive and fairly new. There is a thread on it: PTZ1A225U-IRA-N 2MP 25x Starlight
    This camera is in the category they call 'positioning systems' which is probably why you never noticed it.

    This model will not stock in before March, so not buy them from Aliexpress, i see a guy sell there. They can't ship them within 3-4 weeks.

    Andy - Do you have any pricing info on this camera yet? This is another one I am really interested in, and need to plan ahead with the finances. Probably would go for 2. You are killing me with all these new cameras coming out. But it's a fun way to go!

    The camera mounts to a metal plate with keyholes.

    I think the camera is wider than the PFB203W.

    Yeah, I put it up on the 203w just to test it temporarily, only with one screw on the plate to the mount. But I think I'm going to leave it that way cuz the cam is light and 40 mph winds haven't moved it. I've had it up since Nov. under an eave. I'm not recommending to mount it that way, just that it's possible. And the mount they recommend is the same one you get with my SD49225T PTZ, which I think is overkill for this light of cam. But you'd have to keep it out of the weather also cuz rain or snow would get in.
