Re[2]: Camera into Serial Port hmmm..

To all --

Hopefully, everyone has read Dick Cogger's response to this thread (it
_won't_ work with CUSM right now).

But my question is, does anyone have specs on this camera for what it
_does_ work with? Seems like a serial connection (even pushing at
115k) would be a bit slow for continuous video motion. Is it really a
still camera or kind of a low-number-of-frames-per-second type of
video (kinda stop-action -- ie, claymation)?

I always said that whoever could create a video-input camera for less
than $100 was going to make a million. When do they go IPO? ;)

And how do they get a sample over to Cornell?....
