This is Hikvision’s larger bullet and includes additional features over their mini bullet. First and most important is the 2.8mm-12mm lens allowing for a wider view than available with the mini bullet with a 4mm lens. It also had a microSD card slot for in-camera recording. Another feature is the bright IR LEDs with about twice as many as the mini bullet. The “S” version also had audio and alarm inputs and outputs.

For those that need a simple indoor camera, easy to set on table or even mount on a wall or ceiling, provides great video quality at 1080P or 3MP, WiFi and PoE, IR illuminator, PIR motion detector, in camera recording and built in microphone and speaker, this may be the camera for you.
This is by far the smallest IR Mini Dome I’ve ever reviewed. The actual dome measures about 1 3/4″ and the entire camera sits in the palm of my hand without touching any fingers, that’s small.

Here’s an camera that is called by different names, even on the manufacturers website. Sometimes it’s called a mini dome, a turret but most in the industry refer to this as an eyeball camera. Sort of a cross between a bullet and dome. Has the ease of installation and easier aiming of a bullet, but the round more compact shape of a mini dome without some of the negatives associated with domes.
Where the previously reviewed Hikvision IR mini dome is a very basic camera with limitations, the Hikvision DS-2CD2732F-IS has all the bells and whistles. It’s a full 3-Axis dome, has a microSD card slot with in-camera playback, two-way audio, alarm inputs but also has a nice wide range varifocal lens from a very wide 2.8mm to a good telephoto 12mm. Although it costs a little more than it’s little brother, it’s a far better camera in many respects.
I reviewed the popular bullet version of this camera a few months ago and now I’m covering the IR mini dome version. Again with IR illuminators, WDR, Smart IR and digital noise reduction. They are small for an IR dome and work well in specific situations.
