Determine outdoor or indoor use.
This is the next thing to determine. Most people with outdoor surveillance will be watching a front door, or a car on the street.

Outdoor cameras are made for withstanding extreme weather so they are chunkier and less attractive than their indoor relatives.

Once you assess how your site is lit, you may need an infra red camera. This is a way to see in the dark. If it's for your home in the country or in the suburbs this may help see through badly lit front streets and through bad weather. For an office, you may want one for a poorly lit parking lot.
Keeping the evidence.
So, the whole purpose of the recording what's going on is the storage. This is simple, in general, you have two choices. Get a system by where all the cameras have a memory card or hook them up to a stand alone DVR.
