I’d actually like to know how well the camera performs without removing the IR blocker.
I’ve just purchased a PS3 Eye, and compared to the LifeCam Studio, where I barely see anything, the PS3 Eye without modification sees my finger-blobs quite well…
LifeCam Studio: (link)
(3 fingers barely visible on the right side)
PS3 Eye with IR blocker: (link)
(you see the frame, the protective foil, the 3 finger-blobs, all very clearly)
nevermind the single white pixel in both, it’s a test application for several things
So, should I go ahead and remove the IR blocker anyway?
