Great images from every angle

AXIS M42 Dome Cameras offer great image quality with forensic details even in challenging light. They deliver 4 MP for wide 4:3 view and 3 MP for 16:9 aspect ratio, with a viewing angle up to 100°. The cameras offer a flexible field of view and include a 3-6 mm varifocal lens letting you adjust zoom and focus from remote locations. Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) ensures clarity even when there’s both dark and light areas in the scene. And, thanks to Lightfinder, you also get sharp, color images in low light.  And the model with OptimizedIR Illumination provides exceptional clarity and sharpness even in pitch darkness.

Designed for discretion

The compact dome design means AXIS M42 cameras can be discreetly installed so they aren’t easily noticed. Thanks to the wide range of accessories, the cameras can be mounted just about anywhere indoors. They can be repainted to blend in seamlessly with any interior, and with the smoked dome cover available as accessories, you can conceal the direction in which the camera is pointing.  Plus, thanks to its dust-resistant casing you can be confident it’s safe and secure.
