Hey everyone, I’ve been shopping around for a good web camera, only it seems that most specifications are misleading, and targeted toward a non tech oriented crowd, and reviews the same “This is the most FUN camera around, sporting funny hat overlays, sure to raise a smile when signing into messenger” I mean, come on!
So, what I would like, if anyone is willing, please write down your camera model(and any other cameras you own or have used) in the following format:
Camera Brand/Model: Brand name, make, revision, whatever.
Interface Plug Type: USB, Firewire etc
Price You Paid & Distributor Used:
FPS/Resolution: List of known resolutions to FPS
Performance In Low Light: As a rating of 1 to 10, 1 Being unusable.
Ease of IR Filter Removal: What it took to remove the filter.
Lens Used: If camera uses sets of lenses, need to replace the lens because of an unremovable ir filter etc.
Visible Block/IR Pass Filter Used: Over exposed film, purchased filter, cost, etc.
Setup Distance: Self explanatory
OS Tested On: Windows *, Linux(which drivers?), MAC or any others.
Other Info: Any extra info you want to share about it.
Recommended: Would you recommend using this camera in a multitouch setup?
And once there is a large enough list, it can be added to the wiki, no offense but the current camera info is a bit lack luster, and while it does say who uses what, there is not much congruency so if you can spare a couple of minutes, I am certain this can help everyone who needs extra info when deciding on the camera. I will personally update the wiki, if anyone has any suggestions to a different approach, please post here about it.
Edit: Adjusted, thanks cerupcat and Joobs
