Because banks are poor, right?
Rovers on Mars: 6 CCTV cameras in the UK: 4.2 million
yeah, NASA should have sent up cheapo potato camera equipment with no SD card in it
Also a favorite for ghost/alien/bigfoot etc. hunters.
Do we still use potato cameras or are they 1080p today ? :)
Who snapped the Mars pic?
The reason images like that are bad is because of money and hardware issues. Think how much storage your camera phone takes up with a t minute video. 24 hours of security footage at a high resolution would need to be wiped every few hours. High quality security cameras are usually the ones where a stand in guard is at the monitors at all hours to watch it all.
Well why can’t it be wiped every few hours?
well, lets say that at the end of the day, someone in the bank discovers that $4,000 is missing and they go to check the cameras. if an employee took the money out three hours ago, they would never know that because the footage would have already been erased. or say someone claims that they were attacked at the bank the day before, there would be no proof, since that footage would also be gone. one hour is not long enough to safely store footage.
