Non Firewire Computer Vision Camera for Low Light


    Sep 24 2006 | 11:37 am
    Hi,
    I finally got my hands on a DFG-1394 Firewire convertor and now have the option of using a non-dv/non-webcam camera for computer vision/realtime video etc...
    So rather than a Firewire camera, it can use analogue RCA's feed into the DFG-1394. My main criteria is that is needs to work well in low light and be reasonably compact if possible.
    Currently I am looking at the WATEC WAT-250D, but is it quite pricey. http://www.watec.net/english/color/wat_250d.html Others here: http://www.watec.net/english/c_top.html
    Has anyone had any experience with similar cameras?
    Thanks for your help!
