In Car video cameras x3 - ideas? Will be in race car.
I have been tasked with setting up a 3 camera system for a race car for a friend next season. Its a 206 if anyone is interested. He doesnt mind how it is implemented but he has the following "wants"
3.Multiple cameras -x3
5.Cheap as possible
6.Easy to get digital.
I am thinking of a carputer, as it would be digital and i coould run an epia direct from 12v. HD may be a problem but hopefully should stand up.
However the cameras are the problem:
1. Webcams? Cheap but maybe not good quality...maybe problems with multiples. Just seen firewire cameras advertised- better?
2. CCTV type camera going into analouge capture card - better quality but cant find any cheap cards that do decent framerates.
Any ideas or experiences much appreciated. Also any info on interfacing pc with speedo etc would be good.
Feel free to move this if its th wrong forum, but i figured you car guys might be interested
