Which webcam for Cam2Pan?

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions? The only one I found with the right resolution was the Logitech Express USB, but the reviewers didn't seem to like that cam too much.BTW, this will probably be its only function in life.

the cheapest one you can get. The resolution is adjustable within the cam software and the cam2pan software.I am in the US and I got mine at CompUSA for $19 USD

Logitech works best for me..but what does this have to do with flight simming?

How well does the Cam2Pan software work? I'm thinking about picking up a cheap webcam and setting it up. I almost only use the virtual cockpit when flying so if it works well it would be very useful to me.

It's pretty good. I have the cheapest webcam (Logitech Express something or other) that came in a packet of Cornflakes and Cam2pan recognised it straight away, given that I had already installed its own software so it was recognised on my rig as hardware.What's more, I don't fly in a bright room; my "perceived" FPS for the camera is 8-9FPS but by forcing it to 30FPS (easily done using Cam2pan) it works fine. I don't stick that silly bit of paper on my forehead, either; I reckon my face is ugly enough to keep Cam2pan awake.It's a wee bit jerky occasionally, dependent on the aircraft, but it's easy to reset the view centrally using the space bar at any time.It takes some getting used to though. Every time I turn my head to pick up my beer I find myself inspecting wing rivets.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo2.jpg
