I need to find a stand alone digital camera to connect via usb to a laptop to be used to record theatre productions.
It needs to be able to cope with changing light conditions from extremely bright to dim. (no white out on faces)
I understand the maximum USB cable length is 5m which would allow us to centre mount it.
the stage width is 8m so some sort of wide angle may be needed as we don't want to mount it to far back.
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
Hi I know you can use a canon SDLR remotely with a usb cable and if you invest in a repeater then you can go beyond 5m
