Hi boys & girls!
Though being often discussed in the forums, I haven’t yet found the perfect camera for my purposes:
I am tracking lightsticks in a dark room using freeframe nodes.
The camera will be mounted in ca. 2,5 meters height capturing a room of ca. 3x3 meters.
So the cam should be able to handle relatively small light objects, and because these objects are moving quiet quickly, it should be not too slow.
Well, and because I’m a student it should not be too expensive…
If I got it right, firewire-cams are faster than their USB-pendants? But if I buy a USB-cam like the often mentioned “Philips SPC 900NC”, it has framerates of up to “90”. Is this realistic?
Can you recommend any cam solution that would fit my purposes?
