I got the Sony SSC-M183 camera ($80) and a manual focus/iris lens ($30) from Canal Alarm (link, map). I had to get the lens because the camera doesn’t come with one. Evan Roth has mentioned in the past that its good to have an
auto-iris manual iris (Thanks Theo) on a camera when doing tracking.
I haven’t had a chance to test this setup in openframeworks/processing yet, but I will post the results as soon as its working (or not).
Still need to pick up:
- IR filter: 75mm Wratten-87C infrared filter (on Zach Lieberman’s recommendation)
- 12V DC power supply (required for the M183 Camera)
BNC to RCA adapter
Composite video cable
