New Panasonic Network Camera Firmware

I picked up a network camera, the Panasonic BL-C10 probably a year and a half ago or so. It was a great deal at Fry’s, something like $120. Today, I was looking for another camera to use around the house and all of the ones I looked at, with the features I want (pan/tilt and a built-in web server) go for between $250 and $600! Sure, the image is clearer on the D-Link DCS-5300 but that camera goes for $275 or so. And, to top it off, Panasonic just released a new set of firmware for the camera that adds digital zoom to the ActiveX control (no, not to the camera, it digitally magnifies the image in your browser). Still, I think it’s one heck of a deal, even at the $165 that Amazon.com is charging for it now.
