Time after time after time after time, again we see rubbish cctv photos like this! If it's worth having a camera up then fit a decent one so at least we get a chance of recognising somebody! If you don't get a decent one then you just have wasted your money! You may as well save money by not fitting one then when you get robbed it would probably be cheaper than having a rubbish camera!
