i´m working on a new version of my “brickquencer” (see here), and i need a new webcam for the colour tracking (dv-cams won´t fit in the case).
the picture quality of the Logitech® QuickCam® Fusion™ i used for the first version was fine, however, on reboot, the driver automatically adjusted to the lightning (AND enabled a face-tracking mechanism), and all my settings were lost.
there was no way turn the autoadjustment of (i contacted logitech about this, and they said it was a “feature” that their costumers “loved”), and generic drivers didn´t recognise the camera, so i had to mess with the camera properties every time i started the machine.
so i´m looking for a new camera, logitech is obviously not an option (or has anybody found a way to hack the drivers?), the PHILIPS Webcam SPC 900NC seems to be in the same price range, has anybody experiences with it (and the consumer-friendliness of the drivers)?
