Overview of the Axis M4308-PLE

  • 12MP resolution at up to 25fps
  • 360° panoramic lens
  • Up to 15m OptimisedIR
  • Audio capture capabilities
  • Axis 5-year warranty
  • Dimensions: Ø149mm x 69 mm

Compact and powerful, this outdoor-ready panoramic mini dome offers 12MP resolution video at up to 25 frames per second (fps) – ideal for applications that require highly detailed overviews. Equipped with four microphones and voice enhancer technology, audio captured on this camera can be utilised as an alarm trigger or to increase situational awareness. Additionally, this unit also features deep learning object analytics, up to 15m OptimisedIR and Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support.


Featuring a 1.3mm fixed stereographic lens; this camera clearly captures objects of interest from the camera’s peripheral view, as well as in the foreground, by increasing the resolution around the outer portion of the view. Furthermore, panoramic views of 360° allow the camera to capture full overviews of open outdoor areas. Sharpdome 360 technology is specifically designed for IP cameras with fisheye lenses to help produce sharp and focused images - even at the edges of the camera's view. The inclusion of a removable IR-cut filter allows the camera to deliver footage round-the-clock, whilst integrated IR LEDs with OptimisedIR technology help to reduce overexposure and illuminate the scene at distances of up to 15m – improving the camera’s night vision capabilities.


The camera’s fisheye view can be viewed with less distortion using dewarping technology. Panorama and quad views are also available to show the surveillance area in either one image or in four separate sections. A number of advanced imaging technologies are also included on this device to enhance its ability to record clearly in challenging lighting conditions. Forensic WDR lowers noise levels and boosts image signal, ensuring details are clearly visible in both bright and dark areas, whilst Lightfinder technology delivers full colour video in near darkness, ensuring all details are visible and noise-free.

Video analytics

An integrated deep learning processing unit (DLPU) allows this camera to utilise Axis’ Intelligent Object Analytics to identify and classify objects, configure alarm triggers based on both motion and audio detection and the ability to run simultaneous scenarios. Additionally, this unit offers support for the Axis Camera Application Platform, enabling users to integrate approved third-party applications onto their system, providing a wealth of customisable analytics options.

Video management

With support for edge storage, this camera can use the integrated MicroSD slot to form a backup in cases of network failure or to allow the unit to work as a standalone system. Video management software such as Axis Camera Station or Milestone XProtect can be used for advanced management of live and recorded footage


The camera’s casing is both IP66 and IK10-rated to protect it from inclement weather conditions and tampering – allowing it to function in exposed areas prone to vandalism attempts. Additionally, to simplify installation, PoE+ support delivers power and network connectivity to the camera over a single cable, reducing the amount of wiring needed in the initial set-up.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the accessories tab if required.
