  • What are you using FrodoCam for?

    The obvious answer is a reverse cam however I have a very small car and a reverse cam might be kind of silly. Anyone doing something creative with it?

        I read once mention for someday having FC support recording, then I would say recording the cockpit or the road!

          And what kind of CAM are you using folks, USB (res, LUX, etc) or Video Lin-in with capture card (usb)?
          I ask cuz i'm looking for one, most likely USB but on eBay you see a bunch of usb cams and I dont know what to choose, I want one with 800x600 native and Nightshot (Infrared) for front and rear bumper.

                It's ok if you have a big truck/car and few CAMs for multi angle but in a SportCoupe its hard to do

                  hehehehe very original.... ehhehe (or maybe i'm old-fashioned ehheh) anyways, back to more serious notes...

                  I got a USB camera with nightvision from ebay, I think it was about 50 bucks or so... I never mentioned to get it mounted somewhere satisfactory in my car, I guess I will have to put it embedded in the bumper sometime, but I didnt get around to it yet.

                  I am also unsure if it is reversible, I think not, which would be a problem (stupid rush to buy the damn thing)...

                  What about the other people? what r u using?

                      i had a sony itoy (eye toy) laying around the pad so i found the drivers for it (a simple google search, i'll post it if you cant find it)
                      it works perfectly.
                      i wanted to mount it upside down(from the ceiling) facing inside the cabin from above the backwindow, even though i dont think FP supports recording (hint hint)
                      i couldnt figure out how to flip the display (via software) so i just opened up the bottom of the eyetoy (two screws nothing hard) and gently pulled the board, cam and LEDs out and turned it upside down (for orientation) and it put it back in and its good to go.
                      tip: if you plan on doing this, you need a small flat head to push a clip down on the lens focus bezel ( the plastic thing that you turn to focus) from the inside. which clip tab do you push down? if you look closely theres a few tabs and then a bigger one (not sure but maybe two or so bigger tabs) push down on it and pull gently the cam out from inside not hard at all.

                      i dont have anyidea why i would angle inside the cabin other than cool factor or mayb watch when shes in the front seat =D but maybe turn it around to face outside to see the back bumper... i dont know nor do i have it actually mounted yet so its hard to tell as far as angle and stuff... any ideas im all ears.
