Last year I was making a research experiment and the big problem was to figure out how to record high speed video for cheap.
The solution came from the video game industry: the PS3 eye camera. A device capable to record up to 125 frames per second and still available for less than 50 bucks. Bingo!
Lets get started! this is what you need:
* PS3 eye Camera.
* A really fast computer with a big had drive (high speed recording generates huge files)
* Open source video analysis software
* Drivers downloaded from Code Laboratories (free download)
Step 1: Camera set-up
To enable the "Advanced Mode" just download the attached file called "cleye.config" and simply place this file in the same directory where your executable file resides. (CL-Eye Test.exe)
The path usually is c:\program files\Code Laboratories\
This will allow you to record in different formats like:
Resolution. FPS (frames per second)
320x240 15, 30, 60, 75, 100, 125
640x480 15, 30, 40, 60, 75
