#$ Panasonic BL C101A Fixed MPEG 4 Network Camera White

I was hoping this camera would function as a motion detection camera that would record clips & upload them to my FTP- unfortunately it cannot do this. (FTPing of MPEG4 clips)

This camera was purchased to replace the BL-C1A (also a good product). My only gripe with this product is that it cannot FTP the MPEG images to a server of your choice. It WILL store the images on the camera for viewing; however the camera does not have that much memory, and unless you enable overwriting the stored image, you will maybe get 20-30 seconds total mpeg4.

I don't understand why it cannot FTP the image out- its already storing the clip locally. Conversations with Panasonic support have verified this, and they also add that NO PANASONIC cameras- even their professional products- allow FTPing of the MPEG4 clips.

If you plan to use this camera as remote-viewing, it works perfectly. This camera works as advertised in all regards except for the aforementioned one.
