  • USB webcam for wide angle?

    I have 2 OV2710 usb2.0 webcams (see attached) but I now know I need a slighter better lens parameter than I currently have to fit all the picture in.

    The parameters for an OV2710 is 1/2.7 with a 3.6mm lens so I’ll probably need something like 1/1.8 or better with a 3.6mm lens too to increase the viewing angle

    I run at 640x480 in 120 FPS and need similar. These run at about £50-60 each so excellent specs considering the money

    does anyone have any ideas of any cameras on the market that fit the bill?

    I used these on my install. The wide angle on the right I use for face on view. Distance from camera to ball is 4 feet. Only 30fps in HD. Available on Amazon.

      It's not a fish eye is it?

        No, I can fill the frame with ball to a little taller than my head. Wide angle - not fisheye.

          Steves55347 I purchased the same two cameras as you. I too have about four feet from the ball to the position of the face on camera. (2.1 mm). Interestingly it seems I can capture more height in the fov if I turn the camera sideways. The problem is I can't figure out how to rotate the image I want to appear as not sideways in Kinovea. Any ideas? I'm totally new to Kinovea and after a decent search on the inter web no quick fix jumped out at me. Thanks.

            Ncube - No, sorry. I don’t know anything about the ability to change settings on Kinovea. Maybe you could post that question on their forum. Good luck.
