I am actually on the prowl today for a USB video camera that I can plug into
the computer in my car to take images as I drive, geotag them (along with
orientation) and upload them as I go. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd
love to hear them.
Here's what I've found so far (with some help from Adam Schreiber):
- Also, my XBox 360 webcam (when plugged in to my Ubuntu box) can scale up
to 1280x900 at 5fps, which is almost perfect.
I'm trying to refrain from using a digital still camera for two reasons:
1. Lots of snapshots will wear out the focus/shutter mechanism
2. Controlling the camera in a reliable way is hard.
