XP firewire camera rec for tracking?

Sorry everyone, but I have more camera questions (hopefully the last
for awhile).

It looks like I will be using an XP machine for some motion tracking.
While the environment will be stable (office lobby), the camera will
undoubtedly try and auto iris, focus, gain, etc as people move through
the space.

Since I can’t use IIDC control to disable these “features” while using
XP, does anyone have any suggestions on cameras that I can fix these
attributes? If not digital, any analog camera recomendations?

Essentially, what cameras do Windows people use for computer vision?

Thanks so much.

eh.. nevermind, i forgot that i can use the camera’s software to set the values. (for the record, it looks like i’ll be using the unibrrain fire-i 400 with a wide angle lens for this particular application).

a good camera to use? seems rather expensive for what it is, any cheaper recommendations?

you an use a unibrain fire-i board camera and use interchangeable lenses -
when I bought mine I asked for cases and tripods and they just included them –
the tripod mount is significantly better option for realworld use than the old clip-on version…

and at around $100 a pretty good deal…
and they have worked great for me.
