When I watch crime shows on cable, I always notice that the security cameras used by stores, banks, etc. seem to never have a high enough resolution to solidly identify a person. Even if there is a full-on facial shot. With good lighting. A bank robbery - No Mask!!!
These recordings are so fuzzy, that you might as well not even have cameras in those places. You can get zoomed-in satellite surveillance pictures with higher resolution these days. The satellites themselves are orbiting 200 miles or more above the planet.
Who is selling these systems?
