I was looking at the cameras here https://www.dtsdigitalcctv.co.uk/CCTV-Cameras.asp
however there are many options and not sure what would be best for a mast. The connection does not have to be wired as you can get wireless transmitters and receivers but these cameras need 12 volts of power so that would have to be wired from the cabin
Wondered if anyone had done this and what camera types, styles and lens options they had gone for..?
