I'm looking to find two discreet, fixed cameras to cover between 200° to 240°(combined) on a newly installed 3" lamp post. I pulled two ethernet lines out to the post, so I am looking at POE cameras. It doesn't have to be completely hidden, I just don't want to attract too much attention with it. Ideally it would be black to match the pole.

Many bullet cams I've looked at are upwards of 7" long and the mount would stick out from the pole by a couple inches. Ideally I'd like to find something that fits the pole more snugly.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!

Take a look at these bullets at Nelly's. The mount is almost as big as the camera so if you could figure a way to rig something else, they wouldn't stick out much...these are the shortest bullets I've seen so far. They have a fixed 2.8mm lens and have horizontal FOV of 111 degrees according to their specs.

They do have some black ones here but the lens is 3.6mm and the horizontal FOV is only 85 degrees.

IIRC, these are re-branded Hikvision.
