  • low light night vision camera USB

    Decent deal on comp geeks http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp...IGHT-DIGIGR8-N 14.99

    Anyone have any experience with this one? would 30fps be sufficient for track run recording?

      Just to let you know, it records 30fps in QVGA mode - 320x240. Look for a webcam that does 30fps at 640x480.

          Trust spacecam 380 & 360 for an USB2.0 link, 640*480 @ 30fps. But no night vision.
          Now Galileo is real. Muhahahahaha :p

            FWIW, I bought a very very similar looking (probably the same) camera off ebay. These do not appear to be infrared LEDs, and are in fact quite bright white LEDs. They are blinding if you look directly at them, and probably a bad idea in a car as the lights turn on automatically if the cam is plugged into a USB port and detects a "low" light level, regardless of if the cam is in use or not.

              that sucks divinity... so you would NOT recommend this as a "reverse backup camera"?

              thanks

                No camera that costs $14 is going to make a good backup camera. Anything that cheap, even if it does have actual infrared leds is going to suck, particularly at night. If you want something good for low light, look for something with a low lux rating, at the very most under 2 lux.

                You also can't judge a good camera strictly by the FPS or resolution ratings too much. Cheap cameras can get high frame rates and high actual pixel counts, but if the image sensor they use sucks you'll still get blurry pictures with movement cause the sensor can't adjust to drastically changing inputs.

                The easiest way of judging the quality of a camera is to look for the number after the $ sign. This is the international symbol for quality rating. Generally speaking, the higher the number the better the camera.

                  I'm not going to use it as the rearview cam I planned on. The focus on it sucks too.. hehe these are half-decent cheap cams for clipping on a laptop and "chatting" with the significant other though
