Upgrading the 4GB microSD card in your MOBOTIX camera to a larger capacity card

The MOBOTIX cameras support the latest microSD technology, from 4GB right up to the new 200GB capacity cards. However these high capacity cards should only be installed with Indoor cameras.

Of course there are a number of decisions that need to be factored to ensure you select the right flash media for your MOBOTIX camera. For more information please refer to our comprehensive SD Card Guide.

Once you've selected the right microSD card, the process of swapping out the factory fitted 4GB card to a higher capacity card is quite straight forward. In saying that, a specific set of steps need to be followed to ensure the larger card will operate correctly.

The D15 modular platform has been expanded.

The MOBOTIX D15 has an imaging platform that is modular, allowing users to add or swap out the camera's imaging components quickly. This is not only convenient it's also cost effective.

For example, a Day/color image sensor already installed in the D15 can be changed to a Night/b&w sensor within minutes without having to replace the actual camera itself.

However up until now, the Fixed Day/Night and Pano 180˚ models shipped with the imaging components pre-installed into the D15 camera body. Which meant the lenses could be swapped out but not the image sensors.

MOBOTIX has now completely opened up the modular system across all D15 models allowing you to build your own (BYO) Fixed and Pano models. They have done this by making all the imaging components and accessories available as individual product items.
