Not sure this is the best forum forum for this post - just let me know if you recommend another forum.

Interesting, wonder if this does long exposures as well.

It's just a regular 3 Mpixel CMOS type-1/2" imager using USB 2.0 interface. It's using DirectShow to feed the PC.

Not a video cam and probably best fit in the regular beginner imaging subforum.

P.S. no detailed spec on the imager used is not going to help getting people's interest.

Spec quotes '8 - 45 fps' so little use beyond bright/daylit objects :)
