There are quite a few options available to you, depending on how much comfort you want to have vs. how much money you want to spend. 1. There are a few do-it-yourself solutions as suggested by @filo You can use a Raspberry Pi + Camera + USB Battery pack to setup something, but it requires some effort and it's not going to be the most easy-to-use option. 2....

I would not use wireless because wireless will be too erratic performance for your need. Instead, use a couple of POE cameras, two long cat5 cables, two POE injectors and a switch or a POE switch, and a laptop to do the recording. All of this would run off a 150W inverter which can run off a car battery. Camera $100 NZ/each http://www.cdlnz.com/index....

The best webcam I have used are the various models of Microsoft lifecam. With the lifecam, I have had good success with: HD quality Great color balance (the best I have had with any cam) Very good low light operation and color balance -- best I have experienced. The Lifecam Studio, which is a notch above the lifecam model I have used, looks to meet all ...

A webcam is not what you should look for. Webcams are simple devices, with a digital camera sensor and basic electronics for USB interface. They don't push anything anywhere. Instead, they allow a PC to access images or video stream from them. In other words, they are passive. Instead, you want an active device, a device which would: Know how to connect to ...

You could use a GoPro as webcam! :) Currently, GoPro Webcam mode is supported on: • HERO9 Black • HERO8 Black • HERO7 Black • HERO6 Black • HERO5 Black • HERO4 Black Source: https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam Or you could use a 3D printed structure to be able to use basically any webcam with the mounts.

Worst webcam? Ok, then you will need something bad and cheap as a rock. However it's hard to find anything you specified and making sure it will work. (cheap products like to break a lot) I recommend getting a cam with low FPS (30 should be enough in your case) and as low megapixels as possible. Try using it in the dim room or sticking a translucent sticker ...

So. I found this SABRENT SBT-WCCK USB 2.0 USB Color Web Camera with Built-in Audio Microphone Resolution is 352 x 288 I decided to keep searching for a lower resolution webcam So I searched for some of the first webcams to hit the market. The first commercially available webcam was by a company named quickcam. The original QuickCam provided 320x240-...

The SQ8 Mini DV Camera 1080P Full HD Car DVR is best I could find, it's very small and can run for about 100 minutes at 1080p at 30fps, which should cover most presentations. It comes with its own stand, so if you have a desk, which I assume you do since you can out a laptop down, you can just put it in front of your laptop and stream it to your laptop. The ...

What I found was a digital USB stethoscope with optional Pulse Ox https://www.ebay.com/itm/CON-TEC-CMS-VE-Visual-Digital-Stethoscope-ECG-SPO2-PR-Electronic-Diagnostic-ECG-/263690719589 or digital USB stethoscope with PC interface and SD card storage plus optional Pulse OX https://www.ebay.com/itm/CONTEC-Visual-Digital-Stethoscope-ECG-SPO2-PR-Electronic-...

2×2 mm waterproof casing means likely a 1x1 mm sensor, which means terrible image quality and low resolution. Are you sure this is what you want? In general, tiny cameras measure around 6×6 mm. In order to find them, you need to use the term “snake camera,” “endoscope,” or “borescope.” The last two terms mean different things, but they seem to be used ...

There are microcomputers I suggested in another similar question, and unless your cam needs a specific connector you can choose from those: UP Core - https://up-shop.org/up-core/271-up-core.html 1-4 GB RAM, 16-64 GB eMMC storage, Intel Atom X5 Z8350, 99$USD for cheapest options ASUS Computer Stick VivoStick - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?...

The simple solution was to go out and buy a cheap webcam (cheaper than PiCam without the Pi): the image is severely unfocussed but perfectly good enough to know the status of each LED (but not wide-angle enough to capture the non-critical "pump on" LED). The image is also mirror-image (took me a while to work out why), but I guess that will sort itself out ...

If you haven't rejected the option of using a Raspberry Pi with pi-cam as a system, you'd be getting all of your required features, plus remote access, as the pi could be configured to display the images when polled by a web browser. I'm using Octoprint on my 3D printer, but use an ordinary web cam attached to the Pi. I am able to view images via web browser ...

The Asus Xtion Pro Live is a decent kinect-like sensor, can be powered via usb and is considerably smaller -especially since there is way less cable mess- it is 500$ on amazon. The range is only 3.5 meters however. http://www.amazon.com/Asus-Xtion-PRO-LIVE-90IW0122-B01UA/dp/B00CET0ZBO https://www.asus.com/us/3D-Sensor/Xtion_PRO_LIVE/ I worked with the ...

I would recommend the Logitech C920. It fits perfectly in your budget at $99.99. Here's the features it offers: 1080p Full HD Recording Dual Microphone H.264 compression Tripod mount Low light correction Autofocus Connection through USB
