List of usable Cameras


Hi Folks,

I´m building my own ROV with the openROV electronics, but with completely different housing (100m diving depth). After I had some trouble with my "old" webcam I searched the web and this forum for some help. But I couldn´t find a "list" telling me which webcam would work with the ROV and which doesn´t.

Therefore I´d like to start a post, where everyone could post his experience with different cameras and help others to make their decission.

Logitec Communicate STX: doesn´t work (camera isn´t detected by rov)

Microsoft Lifecam HD-5000: works fine (good resolution, automatic brightness adjustment, but every 20 seconds automatic focusing - maybe ajustable)

Hope you´ll also post your experiences.
