Topic: Low cost setup for real time and delayed analysis.

Hi all

I'm looking to set up a low-cost two  (or maybe 3) camera setup for a student sports club. They have little cash, so I'm working on getting an old-ish laptop and a few cameras to make this happen. My question is low cost cameras. I'd like something that will do 60fps or more if possible. Has anyone come across anything other than the PS3Eye?

Some of these cameras will have to be mounted 12 ft in the air, any issues with USB cabling at that distance?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi murray,
I bought a Logitech C922 Pro, wich is capable of 60 fps at 1280x720 image size.
It works fine for me using different recording software, the record quality is very nice.
It works every now & then using the Kinovea software for recording, e.g. sometimes the records are fine, but sometimes the real fps is much lower than 60 fps.
I have not tried yet to combine two or more of them in any software.
Regarding the distance to cover, just make sure you use an active USB extension cable (up to 5m) or an USB3 port multiplier with external power supply. I am using the combination of those for my 4xPS3eye (enchanced with varifocal lenses) setup.
Best regards,
