The zoom range of the hemisphere camera is small, and the lens is generally not easy to replace. The hemisphere camera is mostly used for indoor small-scale monitoring occasions.

The zoom range of the rifle depends on the selected lens, which can range from several times to tens of times, and the lens replacement is relatively easy. The application range of the gun-type camera is more extensive. Depending on the lens selected, remote monitoring or wide-angle monitoring can be achieved. It is mainly used for monitoring underground roads without low-light illumination and monitoring urban roads.
