I'm collaborating on a project (interactive music, dance, multimedia kind of thing) where I want to do camera detection of dancers on the stage. I might be using two or three cameras in different positions for this.
As it happens, I am shopping for a couple of camera for video recording recitals in the recital hall at my university. A B&H salesman suggested the Sony EVI-D100 with remote pan/tilt/focus. It has a single 1/4" CCD and they sell it for US$930. It outputs to S-Video or composite.
My question is whether this type of camera is a practical choice for the project application I describe, and whether anyone has any experience with this, or think something in the price range is better for both applications. In other words, I could use the same cameras for both applications.
Thanks for any advice--I'm a video novice!
