Hello - You ask the following:
Will you find a 1000' USB cable for each camera?
Ther is no need for a long usb cable between the camera and the laptop/pc -as the images can be stored on a wireless network computer on another part of the premises.
In a few months time (say by November 2005) you should be able to purchase a wireless transmitter that will send the images direct to the pc without any cable.
What about day night? See the images on the website and decide for yourself - you can almost see the veins in the leaves on the trees - you can't get more detail than that.
At night, you need a separate motion detector light of 1,000 watts to illuminate the camera scene.
Are these cameras weather resistant or vandal resistant?
Yes - if you house them in an external housing, although personally I prefer to position a digital stills camera inside a property looking through the window. Then it is less noticeable and there is no need to worry about vandals or the weather.
Do they have a 5 year unbreakable warranty?
I don't know - you can look on the Canon website. Some tests by PC Professional magazine have shown that even if you drop a Canon digital camera on the floor several times, the case may break but it will still work.
Can they see 500' in pitch dark? Yes - provided you illuminate the camera scene with a motion detector light.
Can I install one in my motion detector?
There's no need - you can download a simple software utility that will enable you to set up trigger spots on the live viewfinder display on the desktop, which will trigger the camera as soon as the pixels under the trigger spots change.
Can I roll over it in my SUV?
Yes - but in that case you may be taking snapshots of a clear blue sky.
