Current IP PTZ Camera Recommendations?

We use Sunba cameras here with reasonably good results, but the model we use is no longer available and their management interface requires IE and a proprietary plugin.   We plan on replacing them in the next year or two.   

Can anyone recommend a reasonably-priced, IP POE PTZ camera, with a modern UI? 

Thanks.

Don't the newer sunbas

Don't the newer sunbas support all browsers? I think i did have to use a plugin tho.

Sunbas -

That could very well be - I don't know what plugins a modern browser would use, though.  Thanks for the tips.

I have a Sunba covering my Radio control flying field. I am disappointed they don't have the ability to do Mjpeg which covers all browsers. Using VMS works very well but is hard to explain to the club members. I built a Raspberry Pi here at my house that takes the output from my VMS and relays it as a series of jpegs. That way anyone can view the camera at my web site w6ryo.com.

raspi + fpv servo mount

Orv,

one possibility is to have a raspberry pi and pi camera with an fpv servo mount connected to the gpio

write a little code for some buttons on a webpage to adjust the pwm signal out the gpio for the servos and you have a little pan tilt camera

I did it back in 2016 for a robot I built in high school but I lost my code for it

its a bit more complicated than an embedded drop in poe ptz camera

I know that no one likes to

I know that no one likes to hear this but a good PTZ cost ~$1000 and It's up hill from there!

Consider how you plan to power the camera! Is 24vdc needed at the camera, dose the camera run on 24v passive POE, dose it run on 48vdc POE. 

The Sony starlight ccd is found in most of the following cameras. Im a fan of the module!
