An, good questions.
Nirvana would be:
Motion detection - prefer to have the camera do motion detection
color w/night vision
I'd prefer jpeg format
light level will vary quite a bit
moving object in the field of view could potentially be moving quickly,
but not a running speed. More than a slow walk, slower than a run.
